Janet Pineault, one of the LIbrary Trustees, and a member of the Foxboro Art Association for many years, greeted and thanked the donating artists in person. The works were of high quality (of course) and were well-received by library staff and patrons who happened by. A reporter for the local newspaper, the Foxboro Reporter, also dropped by and took lots of photos. Our heartfelt thanks go out to all 44 of the the generous artists and those stalwarts who helped hang the works: Kathy Hutchinson, Haydi Hurley, Vera Cross and Frank Quinn.
