    “The People’s Choice exhibition showcases a wide array of styles and mediums and has always been a long-standing favorite among our patrons,” said AAN artistic director Robert Frazier. “This interactive show not only offers viewers the chance to enjoy numerous works by our talented artists, they also have the additional satisfaction of being a part of the exhibition by voting for their favorite work," added Frazier.

    “The AAN includes close to 250 local artist members. We are grateful they continue to help make our award-winning AAN gallery (I&M BEST OF and Yankee Magazine Best of New England) one of the most comprehensive venues for local art. This year their works include everything from oil paintings, watercolors, fabric art, ceramics, wood carvings, mixed media, and photographs,” said AAN gallery director Peter J. Greenhalgh. “This voting exhibition gives our artists well-deserved bragging rights. All of the highlighted winning works will be on display for the duration of the exhibition,” added Greenhalgh.
