Boyden Library Art Auction

As of January 16, we have 31 members of the Foxboro Art Association who have volunteered to donate a work of art to the Boyden Library Art Auction. This is a wonderful opportunity for our members to gain exposure in the local community and we are hoping that another 10 or so members will join us and agree to submit a framed work for this major event. The auction will be held March 26 at the Foxboro Country Club, but all the donated art will hang in the library for the previous month as a preview for prospective bidders. Accordingly, we are asking members to drop off their donations Saturday morning, Feb. 26, between 10 and 12. The works will then be hung that afternoon. We are also asking that the donors provide a brief bio that we can insert in a program book for all to review. Finally, each work should be accompanied by the following info:
Artist's name______________________ Title__________________________
Medium________ Artist's estimated retail value $__________
Plus background info about the work that might add meaning (and value).

You do not have to be a member to donate, so if you know an artist who would like to participate, feel free to invite him/her. Also, any donor is entitled to one free ticket to the event. Please let Frank Quinn know if you wish to attend. Also, if you have any questions, you can reach Frank at 508 668-7031 or
Please join us and help validate our worth to the library and to the community it serves.
