COMMUNITY ANNOUNCEMENT
The Artist’s Studio and Gallery at Patriot Place is once again featuring student artwork from local high schools.

The exhibit, returning for a third year at the Patriot Place art gallery, has provided a wonderful experience for students to proudly display their work in a professional setting, according to Jack Gannon, gallery manager at The Artist’s Studio & Gallery at Patriot Place.

“We are thrilled to provide local students and high school art departments the opportunity to display their work prominently in a gallery setting,” Gannon said. “The experience is always so rewarding for everyone involved and we are excited to showcase the amazing artwork of these local students again this year.”

The program’s 2014 schedule is as follows:

This year’s program began last month with artwork from students at Xaverian Brothers High School.

The Artist’s Studio and Gallery at Patriot Place is a professional, family-friendly gallery that provides hundreds of local artists an inexpensive option to exhibit and sell art and art lovers an opportunity to enjoy and purchase some of the best locally produced artwork around.

“We want the community to know they have a professional yet fun art gallery right in their own backyard,” said Gannon.

PROSPECT HILL TO PLAY SPECIAL ACOUSTIC SET AT OLD NAVY AT PATRIOT PLACE

COMMUNITY ANNOUNCEMENT
Massachusetts-based band to donate used jeans; perform free acoustic concert to support Cradles to Crayons program.

Prospect Hill, a Massachusetts-based rock band, will perform a live acoustic set inside Old Navy at Patriot Place on Friday, Jan. 24, to support Cradles to Crayons. Band members will donate used jeans to promote Cradles to Crayons and will shop for one outfit each (provided by Old Navy) before performing live at 5 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

Friday, Jan. 24
5 p.m.
Old Navy at Patriot Place, 280 Patriot Pl., Foxborough, Mass.

Prospect Hill is a Massachusetts-based band comprised of five friends – Adam Fithian (vocals), Alex Huston (guitar), Edgar Troncoso (bass/vocals), John Roberge (guitar) and Mark Roberge (drums) – who have spent the last few years creating a brand just north of Boston. Named after a local neighborhood, Prospect Hill has been a band in some incarnation or other since some of the members were in seventh grade. They released independent albums on their own and took to the New England scene through hard work and elbow grease. That commitment paid off with the 2012 release of its album, “Impact,” which has raised the band’s profile in the rock community. Its unique sound and great live show are what define Prospect Hill.

Cradles to Crayons was founded in 2002, with the mission of providing to children ages 0 to 12 some of the most important basics of life—free of charge. These basics include clothing, school supplies, toys, and much more. In other words, we provide all the physical goods that children need to be safe, protected from the elements, and ready to learn. And by supplying them with high-quality used or new goods, we make children feel valued.
