May 8 Meeting

On May 8 the Art Association held its last meeting until September. Pictured above is Susan Kelley who gave a wonderful demonstration of her painting techniques for an interested audience of more than 35. The above photo was taken during the break, when audience members could take a closer look at Susan's palette.
Other news during the meeting was that (1) the current officers have agreed to serve another term (thank God); (2) the Art Gallery at Patriot Place will host another "Paint Out" Saturday afternoon June 15 in which all artists and students are invited to participate; (3) Foxboro High School's Kira Hallberg was awarded the annual David Whithers Memorial Scholarship; and (4) four other art associations besides Foxboro have been invited to participate in a unique exhibit entitled "Masterpiece Masquerade" in which artists can submit a copy of a famous masterpiece -- but with a "twist" which will make it unique. This special exhibit will be held the first two weekends of October at the Gallery at Patriot Place, with a judge from each association. Prize money will be awarded.
Finally, the Art Association wants to thank St. Mark's Episcopal Church for letting us use their wonderful downstairs room for our meetings the past two years while the Boyden Library was undergoing its expansion project. We look forward to returning to our "new/old" Boyden Library this September.
