2019: Marking Territory

2019 Theme: Marking Territory

The Southborough Open Land Foundation, in collaboration with Southborough Artist Catherine Weber, is pleased to present the 2019 Art On the Trails: Marking Territory from June 13 to September 22, 2019 at the Elaine and Philip Beals Preserve, Southborough, Massachusetts. Stay tuned for news on our art juror. Find a map, parking, and directions here.

Theme: Marking Territory

Marking Territory explores the idea that both animals and humans have ways of creating boundaries in their environment in an attempt at creating a safe place. Mark making in art refers to the different lines, patterns, and textures we create ​in a piece of art. It applies to any art material on any surface, not only paint on canvas or pencil on paper.  We invite artists to consider how one might mark the environment in a non-permanent way, as their own expression of boundaries. 

Beginning in June, we will be accepting poetry submissions in response to the installations. Learn more here.
