Maggie Parone won the People’s Choice award for her work, “Who?”

The Grafton Fine Arts & Music Festival was this past weekend (I missed it for the first time ever; my husband surprised me with a weekend in Rockport) and they have released the list of winners. There were more than 300 entries this year.

There was one major surprise: for the first time, the People’s Choice award went to a student artist, Maggie Parone, for her work, “Who?”.
