Chris Coyne Demo

The Art Association met on September 9  for the first meeting of the (school) year at the Boyden Library in Foxboro. Members, as well as some others, watched Chris Coyne from Rockport demonstrate how he paints watercolors. As shown below, in less than 2 hours, he drew out and painted a large watercolor from a picture he had taken of Vermont farm. Chris maintains a gallery in Rockport and offers classes and workshops.

Meeting Sep. 9

Just a reminder that our first meeting of the school year is Wednesday, September 9, at 7 pm. (Plan to come early and hob-nob with the glitterati -- even non-members because the public is invited for free.)  Chris Coyne, a terrific watercolorist, will demonstrate his painting techniques at the meeting.
Summer is over, which means that our "Fall Members' Show" in October is fast approaching. Drop-off is Saturday morning, 10-noon, Oct. 3. Refer to your newsletter for more info or contact Frank Quinn at 508 668-7031.
