This weekend, don’t forget to stop in to our Foxborough studio for our summer celebration of the arts – Winter in August!
While the weather may be hot, these artworks aim to capture the beauty and majesty of cold, wintery scenes as seen from the sweltering summer months. These refreshing scenes capture snow-covered trees, ice-capped rivers and lakes and even some of the winter wildlife in their seasonal white camouflage.
Winter won’t be the only theme, though, as many of our artists have created vibrant floral scenes and images pulled straight from nature through the strokes of their brushes and the craft of their hands. See vibrant red cardinals and orange-pink flower blossoms come to life on canvas, with the subdued watercolors and vivid oil paints making remarkable pieces that are sure to inspire.
Art will be on display from teenagers, adults and even our own instructors, representing a wide range of different mediums. Our artists hail from all around the area – Mansfield, Sharon, Norfolk and right here in Foxborough – and many of their best pieces will also be available for purchase as part of our huge unframed art sale. Visitors can review the many different watercolors, mixed media works and oil paintings to find the perfect piece for their home, and at prices starting as low as $10. Plus, all guests to the art show will be entered into a drawing to win a one-of-a-kind watercolor painting by studio Executive Director Carla Carey. Check out some of her great artwork on her own site, CarlaCarey.com.
Originally planned for July, we moved the event to allow even more of our great artists to participate – and to take advantage of the tax-free weekend. During both Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 15-16, come down to Hunakai Studio of Fine Arts and see some of the great pieces that our students and instructors have made! The studio will be open from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday and 1-4 p.m. Sunday. So, stop in this weekend to the Winter in August show, take in some of our artists’ great talents and maybe find a perfect piece to take home and enjoy through every season!
