BEST IN SHOW:  Donna MacLure, “Tangled”  (w.c.)

Last weekend, 194 ballots were cast by members of the public for their favorite pieces. As it turned out, the choice was clear and there were no hanging chads. The PEOPLE’S CHOICE was awarded to Laura Zanghetti's “Shoe Shopping”, shown above.
Thanks to all 56 members of the Foxboro Art Association who participated in this wonderful show, and to those members who worked at the gallery during the 2 weekends of the show. And special thanks to Vera Cross, Paula DePierro, Meredith Whalen and Frank Quinn who helped put the show together.
