Island Flag

February 5, 2009 - The flag on the island was briskly flying.  If you have ever wondered what to do with your old or torn flag, just take it to the Southborough Transfer station and deposit it in the box provided by the local Veteran's.  In June on Flag day they collect all the old flags and dispose of them in a ceremony.

COMET TAIL: Comet Lulin (C/2007 N3) is approaching Earth and putting on a good show for amateur astronomers.  Yesterday, Feb. 4th, observers witnessed a "disconnection event." A gust of solar wind tore off part of the comet's tail in plain view of backyard telescopes. Photos of the event are featured on today's edition of http://spaceweather.com. Activity in the comet's tail and atmosphere will become even easier to see in the weeks ahead as Lulin nears closest approach on Feb. 24th.   At that time the comet will lie only 38 million miles from Earth and it should be visible to the naked eye.  In the meantime, please note that Feb. 5th-7th, is an especially good time to find Comet Lulin in the pre-dawn sky. The comet is gliding beautifully close to the naked-eye double star Zubenelgenubi.  Just point your binoculars at the double star and the comet will materialize right beside it. Visit http://spaceweather.com for photos, sky maps and more information.

Museum Lecture on Immigration to be Aired on the Cambridge Forum
February 13, 2009 at 1 pm on 68.5 AM Radio

On February 13, 2009, the Cambridge Forum will air a radio program based on the Museum’s lecture “Refugees and Other Immigrants in America: How Different is Their Experience?” The lecture was presented by Karen Jacobsen, Associate Professor at the Feinstein International Center at Tufts University. Dr. Jacobsen spoke about the ways in which refugees coming to America today differ from most immigrants. She discussed  how they make their way to America, the forms of assistance available to them, their integration into American communities, and their continuing ties to their homeland. The broadcast can be heard at 1 pm on 68.5 AM radio.

Cambridge Forum is one of public radio’s longest running public affairs programs. The broadcasts explore topics related to civic democracy, science and technology, history and the global environment, as well discussions about computers, education, art, and more.

 

"Keepers of Tradition: Art and Folk Heritage in Massachusetts"
Extended Through June 7, 2009!

 

 The Museum, in collaboration with the Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC), is pleased to announce it is extending "Keepers of Tradition: Art and Folk Heritage in Massachusetts" through June 7, 2009. "The exhibition has been hugely popular with visitors," said Hilary Anderson Stelling, Director of Collections and Exhibitions, "and when the opportunity to extend the show presented itself, we didn't hesitate. We are very grateful to the artists for allowing us to display these treasures a bit longer."

"Keepers of Tradition" features more than 100 works by 70 Massachusetts artists who preserve and revitalize deeply rooted traditions. Reflecting the populace of Massachusetts, their art takes many expressive forms-from Native American basketry to Yankee wooden boats, Armenian lace, Chinese seals, Puerto Rican santos, and Irish music and dance. These keepers of tradition are recognized in their communities as outstanding practitioners of craft, music, dance, and sacred arts. Yet much of this work is hidden to the public at large, remaining essentially unknown beyond the local community in which it flourishes.

More information about the exhibition, including an audio tour, can be found at the Museum's web site. The official MCC web site for the show can be found at www.massfolkarts.org.

Southborough Business News

Marcone Capital arranges $6.4 million financing for entity controlled by Shahbazi
Southborough, MA Mike Marcone of Marcone Capital, Inc. has arranged the permanent financing of 333 and 337 Turnpike St., consisting of two office buildings totaling 76,502 s/f.

Both buildings are located next to each other and benefit from a location near Rte. 9 and Rte. 495.

Both office buildings are two stories and consist of 39,774 s/f and 36,728 s/f of net leasable area respectively. Major tenants include Visiting Nursing Association (VNA), New England Home Therapies, Becker College, and the Massachusetts Restaurant Association.

The property was acquired by the owner in February 2007. At the time of acquisition the property was only 41% leased with most of the vacancy contained in the 337 Turnpike St. building, which was in need of renovation. Since acquisition, the borrower has spent $900,000 on renovating the property. Today, the total property occupancy is close to 80%.

The property is owned by Southborough Equity Partners, LLC, an entity controlled by Kambiz Shahbazi, who is also the owner of KS Partners, LLC, a real estate holding company.

The financing was provided by a regional bank.

According to Marcone "Despite the more challenging credit market, given the quality and location of the property combined with the strong sponsorship, the lender was able to provide a very flexible loan structure at a truly superior interest rate."

Marcone Capital is a mortgage banking and real estate consulting firm.

Exhibit: Collage: Process and Product
March 13th - April 10th
Opening Reception March 13th 7-9pm
Hendrick Collage
This exhibit explores the rich and unique art medium of collage.  Collage includes pasted papers, altered books, mixed media, assemblage and so much more. 

The title of this exhibit refers to two diverse ways of making art.  One way to approach creating a new piece of art is to immerse oneself in the artistic process,  whatever that may be: painting, pasting, assembling, cutting, drawing, etc.  Works created this way emerge from the use of materials and the artist does not start with a preconceived notion of what the end product will be.  The other approach when creating a new work is to start with a preconceived idea of what the piece will be or mean and work the processes to that end.  Each of these are viable ways of working and the artists in this exhibit employ both techniques in creating their art.  The result is a wonderful array of diverse and beautiful art that shows the unique talents of each artist.

Participating in the show are the following artists:
 
Kathleen Hendrick, Joan Loewenberg, Amy Rubin, Nyia Yanatos,Ted Todd, Amelia Todd, Donna Kaplan, Caroline Bowden, Betsy Beninger, Michele Kweder,
 
Joan Halperin, Joan Rubin-Deutsch, Ania Gilmore,Leah Fine
 
Photoshop Basics II Workshop
Sunday March 8th, 1-4pm, $40
w/ Michelle Sheppard
Arts Building Warhol Style This one-day workshop will expand on the basics of Photoshop and dig deeper into the photo editing process.  Learn the foundations of image correction, resizing, printing, and digital collages, as well time to address questions that arise as one learns to navigate digital imaging through Photoshop. Laptop with Photoshop is required.
 
 
Rescheduled Watercolor Collage Workshop
w/ artist Crist Filer

Sunday March 22nd
10am-3pm at Arts Center, $45
Our last attempt at this workshop was doomed by a snow storm. So, once again, we are pleased to present artist Crist Filer. His sharp edged graphic artwork, using both wet-in-wet and dry brush techniques, provides and exhilarating experience of design and color. 
 
Arts Building Warhol Style

This workshop will be engaging and useful to both those who have created collage before along with those who may have wanted to explore collage but lacked a creative "entry portal."

Expect to dive into the discovery and development of Filer's unique collage approach. Participants will take one of their own "failed" or disappointing watercolors (or any painting on paper) and dissect it in order to rebuild it into a new work of art. Attendees, using the guidelines and suggestions will  plan and critically think about their collage. Filer will lead an informal critique through out the workshop. Most of the day will entail accomplishing the collage and broadening the creative scope of the collage process.

Slip Sliding Away Again

February 3, 2009 - A van struck a telephone pole outside of St. Mark's Golf Course shortly after the snow started to fall this afternoon.

Winter weather advisory in effect from 9 am this morning to 3 am est. Wednesday


The NWS in taunton has issued a winter weather advisory for snow, which is in effect from 9 am this morning to 3 am est. Wednesday.
This advisory is for northern Connecticut, all of Rhode Island, and much of Massachusetts, except for the far northwestern and southeastern portions.
Light snow will continue to develop this morning, and possibly become moderate later this morning and this afternoon. Occasional light to moderate snow will continue through this evening before tapering off and ending after midnight. The exact amount of snowfall will be determined by how far west the heavier precipitation associated with the offshore low progresses. Our best estimation for storm total snowfall, spanning the 24 hour period ending late tonight, is 2 to 5 inches, with locally higher amounts of 7 or 8 inches possible. Highest amounts are expected across Rhode Island and eastern Massachusetts. Some blowing and drifting is expected, especially during the afternoon hours today.
There is still some uncertainty with the exact track of the storm, and this results in some uncertainty with final snowfall accumulations. If the low tracks closer to the coast today, then slightly more snowfall would be expected. If the low tracks further to the east, slightly less snowfall will likely occur. Regardless of low track and exact snowfall amounts, the late afternoon and evening rush hour will in all likelihood be a slippery one, with a relatively high probability of snow covered roadways and low visibilities.
A winter weather advisory is issued when snow and/or ice is forecast to develop in the affected areas, but accumulations are expected to be light. Any snow or ice would make driving and walking difficult, but not impossible, on untreated roadways and sidewalks. When temperatures are below freezing, motorists need to be especially careful on bridges and overpasses where slippery spots can easily develop.
