Did you know that much of the work in Beals Preserve this summer is for sale? In fact, we have already sold All Things Sparkley, the hanging piece created by Chelsea Bradway and her daughter Miley and son Max. Not only do sales support the artists, they also support Southborough Open Land Foundation, who receives 25% of the proceeds. If you’ve ever wanted a sculpture for your garden or yard, come on over to Beals Preserve any time up to September 24th and contact me. I can get you in touch with the artist.
Here is what you will see when you go:

Since our opening on June 7th, I have given a number private tours of the exhibition, Art on the Trails: Finding Solace in the Woods. Whether the participants are artists, poets, or art-interested folks, I have received wonderful feedback. More than anything, I love the surprise that visitors show when they encounter one of the pieces that are thoughtfully placed within the Preserve.
At the request of a number or poets who plan to respond to the work in the woods, I am leading a tour on Wednesday, June 21 at 6 PM. This tour will meet and begin at the trailhead at the end of Red Gate Lane, where there is parking in the circle. (Use 22 Red Gate Lane, Southborough, MA for your GPS)
The tour is approximately 1 1/3 miles long and usually takes 1 1/2 hours. I recommend wearing sneakers or hiking boots, and long pants, and/or wear bug spray. In addition, I will bring a mosquito/tick repellent device that works well. The terrain is fairly level and there is no climbing required. Participants of any age are welcome as well as dogs, as long as they are friendly and you can control them on or off leash.
Please RSVP on Facebook if you can so we know how many people to expect. If you have questions, do not hesitate to reach me at 508-523-3605 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to seeing you there!
