Kim Weineck on TV & Internet

Kim Weineck, artist and teacher, recently appeared on Foxboro Cable Acces TV demonstrating how to paint with pastels. The DVD, which is almost an hour and a half long, makes a great educational gift and is available for $20 at the Foxboro Cable station, 28 Central Strret, in downtown Foxboro.
But you can watch it for free on the internet if you go to and click on the Community tab. It is titled "Artistic Flair - Episode 4". It is definitely worthwhile.

The Boyden Library is showing a new exhibit of 34 labor-related posters collected by Stephen Lewis during June. These posters combine both history and art, because many of the labor events hired artists to design the posters. (One of theses is pictured here.) Mr. Lewis also has an exhibit of posters of "Black Leaders" from around the world at the Norton Library and posters of the "99% Resist" movement at the Wrentham Library.

Spring Members Show

Forty members of the Foxboro Art Association submitted artwork for the Spring Members Show at the Boyden Library for the month of April. Copley artist Eli Cedrone was this year's judge and was tasked with deciding which ones would receive ribbons. She chose Ken Perlow's painting "Lunch Date" to be the "Best in Show" -- an outstanding work. But to heighten the suspense, the other ribbon winners will remain nameless until the next meeting Wednesday, April 9, when members can see for themselves. The 40 works will be on display in the library's Community Room until the members retrieve their works on Saturday morning, 10-12, April 26.

Doolittle Art Auction Successful

DeAnna Willis of the Doolittle Home is flanked by Bill Grieder and Kevin Weinfeld
The Doolittle Art Auction at the Foxboro Country Club Saturday was a grand affair. Appetizers were delicious, music was wonderful, the auctioneers, Bill Grieder and Kevin Weinfeld, were fabulous and all the donated art was sold to a very generous crowd. The evening also featured a blue martini, called "the Bloolittle", which may have helped improve the bottom line. In all, the Doolittle Home probably cleared about $13,000. They are very grateful and want to thank all the members and friends of the Foxboro Art Association who donated 55 pieces for the live auction. Thanks also to those who donated original Homer White paintings for the Silent Auction. It was a wonderful evening for all!
