Meeting Jan. 13

We held our meeting,as usual, at the Boyden Library in Foxboro on Wednesday, January 13. Our President, Kathy Hutchinson, made an urgent appeal for volunteers to step forward to become officers for next year. She then introduced accomplished painter Vincent Crotty for his demo. He was wonderful. See the attached photos. Shown is him producing the painting and then the painting in a frame. Not shown is a quick nocturnal painting that Vincent also painted, showing the different effects of lights at night.
Our next meeting is February 10 (Ash Wednesday). Our guest demonstrator will be Emily Passman (emilypassman.com). It's free and all are welcome. Come at 6:30 and socialize with others. A very short informational meeting starts at 7, followed by the demonstrator, by 7:15.
