Today, the Southborough Cultural Arts Council reached out with an update on a call for art and poetry they put out earlier this year. SCAC asked people to share their “Silver Lining Expressions”.
According to today’s announcement, the initiative was a success. Contributed works are being showcased this weekend.
In August, SCAC explained its call for “Artistic Expression in a World of Uncertainty”:
Southborough Cultural Arts Council is looking for…well…YOU! We want to celebrate Silver Linings during all of the uncertainty we have endured since March. Although we are all living with the impacts of the pandemic, protests and more, we are asking artists (of all ages!) to capture the hope, kindness, and inspiration–the silver linings.
The exhibit isn’t accessible for free at this time. It is part of the entertainment to be featured at this Sunday’s Fall Fun at the Farm event:
Silver Linings Art Exhibit: an assortment of poems, photographs, paintings and other art from local artists that highlights creativity/inspiration during the pandemic
Pre-registration is required through TTOR. (I just checked and slots were still available for this weekend.) The farm event also includes hayrides, a scavenger hunt, visits with friendly goats, a climbing haystack, fun games, live music and vendors.
SCAC already exhibited works at the October 4th Fall Fun at the Farm. The agency shared a video of the event featuring organizers and participants. You can view it below or on SAM’s YouTube channel:
The public will get another chance to enjoy the works this Sunday, October 18th. Tickets to the event range from $9 – $20 (with children under the age of two for free.)
Timed tickets are for 90 minutes starting at noon, 1:30 pm, and 3:00 pm.
This Sunday won’t include a Craft Beer vendor. It is scheduled to feature:
- South 9 Food Truck: authentic Southern food
- Ethan Robbins from Cold Chocolate: live music 1-4pm
- Angel Hair Alpaca Farm(MA) will bring their alpacas and alpace-fleece items
- Candy Cove Treats
- All things Sparkley professional photos
- Bee Crafty arts & crafts

It’s worth noting that despite concerns recently raised by Selectmen and on the blog, the Trustees assure that the events aren’t impeding public access protected by the Conservation Restriction. The event parking hasn’t been filling up, and isn’t overflowing into the area reserved at the trailhead for public use. (More on that in a future post.)
