Zentangle Creators at Mill Pond Aug 22 6:30-9pm

Written by Webmaster   
Wednesday, 21 August 2013 06:42

Internationally known artists Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas, inventors of the art form Zentangle, are slated to appear in Westborough later this month. Zentangle is an easy, relaxing way to create beautiful drawings using structured patterns, inspired by objects in the artist’s environment. Many people who do Zentangle use the practice as a way to relieve stress, increase focus, and foster an approach of mindfulness.

Zentangle was created in Whitinsville, MA, and just within a few years, has grown to hundreds of thousands of practitioners worldwide, who claim benefits beyond its original expectations.

Rick Roberts, who lived for years as a monk, and Maria Thomas, a lifelong artist, combined relaxed attention with drawing to create the Zentangle Method so they could share the benefits of their discovery with others. They have taught Zentangle artists to recognize patterns in their surroundings and “tangle” them into an enjoyable creative experience.

The Westborough Public Library and Art and Frame Emporium are pleased to announce that Rick and Maria will be appearing in Westborough on Thursday, August 22 from 6:30-9 pm at the Mill Pond School, located at 6 Olde Hickory Path. Rick will discuss their creative moments and how they started this worldwide phenomenon. Following his presentation, Maria will present a Live Tangle, where she will demonstrate how a piece of Zentangle art is created. Copies of their new book, The Book of Zentangle, will be available for purchase and signing at the event. There is no charge for admission, and the public is welcome.

Two exhibits of Rick and Maria’s original Zentangle work are currently on display: at the Westborough Public Library, 55 West Main Street, Westborough; and at the Art and Frame Emporium in the Westborough Shopping Center, 18 Lyman Street, Westborough. Copies of the book may be purchased in advance at the store, and can also be checked out at the library.

For more information, contact Ed Turner at the Art and Frame Emporium, 508-366-5650, artandframeemporium@verizon.net; or Maureen Ambrosino at the Westborough Public Library, 508-366-3050, mambrosino@town.westborough.ma.us.

Saturday, 25 May 2013 16:42

Live, in Westborough, the thirteenth annual concert of the Vivaldi Cello Festival Orchestra will take place on Saturday, May 25 in the Gibbons Middle School auditorium in Westborough at 7 P.M.

The purpose of the event is to give local young musicians an opportunity to perform with a professional orchestra as a soloist in a formal concert setting.  Boston musicians who come together each year as the Vivaldi Festival Orchestra accompany the featured soloists.  Works by Vivaldi, St. Saens, Haydn, Tchaikovsky and Lalo will be performed.  The conductor is Paul Dulude, director of the Boston Virtuosi.

Parents and local businesses and organizations sponsor the performance.  The concert is free, and donations are encouraged and gratefully received.

Eight of the cellists are students of Maryan McClelland Pietropaolo, who taught at the University of Lowell and Phillips Exeter Academy.  She moved to Westborough in 1999 with her husband, Joe Pietropaolo, a member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra viola section for 39 years.  Two of the cellists are students of Cynthia Forbes, long time cello continuo for the Vivaldi Festival Orchestra. Cynthia teaches at Indian Hill Music, Boston Latin School, the Cambridge Center for Adult Education, and maintains a private studio.

Nov. 9th – WESTBOROUGH, MA – It’s that time of year when parents start looking for that perfect gift for their son or daughter or that special person who hasn’t found the time to play their dream instrument.

This includes all ages, all levels and all styles of music!

This event will be a great opportunity for children and their parents to hear, touch and try the Guitar or Piano with the assistance of our professional instructors - the perfect chance to explore the possibilities for those who’ve been thinking about playing these two instruments but haven’t quite decided which one.

Students who have decided to play the guitar or piano and want to get a head start on learning how to play it will receive discounts on their first guitar or Keyboard as well as a month of FREE LESSONS!

In addition, demos, sample classes and informational flyers will provide details about programs offered in the Louis J. Vella Lesson Center.
