Eyes on Owls

Who’s Watching You? Owls of the World


Everyone loves owls! Yet, how many of us have ever seen a live owl up close? Perhaps you’ve glimpsed the shadowy form of a Great Horned Owl in the headlights as you’ve traveled a back road at night. Ever scanned a frozen saltmarsh or farmer’s meadow in winter, hoping to find that Arctic hunter, the Snowy Owl? How about a mob of noisy crows circling a white pine tree – have they found an owl?
Join naturalist Marcia Wilson and photographer Mark Wilson in sharing their passion for owls! “Who’s Watching You? Owls of the World” will introduce you to the owls of New England and beyond. Some owls such as Great Horned, Barred and Eastern Screech Owls are more common than you may think. Boreal owls and Great Gray owls are a rare find here, yet are found on other continents, too. Others like Snowy Owls, Eurasian eagle owls and familiar Barn Owls feature in popular movies and nature programs. Mark and Marcia will share the field marks, signs and naturalist’s skills that you can use to find wild owls without disturbing them, while introducing you to six live owls up close. Everyone is treated to a hooting lesson, as well as tips on how to attract and protect owls near you. These secretive birds are specially adapted for living in diverse environments, from marshes to tundra and
from rainforest to grasslands. You’ll find owls on all the continents except Antarctica. Most owls thrive on eating small rodents like mice and voles. Some owls take insects, ducks, snakes, fish, frogs or bats. One owl even relishes a meal of skunk!
Explore the world of owls with two talented naturalists and six lively owls, whose pursuits both near and far make this interactive program fun and educational!

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Pepperell Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.

Twisted Sisters: Author Talk

Join us is in welcoming local author, Eamon McCarthy Earls, as he discusses his book, Twisted Sisters.

The author of more than a dozen regional histories about Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut and southern New England, Eamon McCarthy Earls calls upon his background in historical research and geology to reassemble the story of the great 1950s New England hurricanes: Carol, Edna, Connie and Diane, which hammered New England within just months into the 1950s, crippling industries and nearly destroying whole cities with devastating winds, pounding waves, record floods and destruction of Biblical proporations. Could this happen again?

The storms that hit sixty years ago strike a personal note with Eamon, whose family witnessed the devasting 1955 flood first-hand in Southbridge, Massachusetts. In addition to his research on the "Twisted Sisters", Eamon has worked on New England hurricane research with the Coastal Systems Research Group at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.

Jeanine M. Vitale: The Tree's Got the Moon

Photographer Jeanine M. Vitale presents her exhibit The Tree's Got the Moon, on display through May 24th.

Jeanine has at various points in her artistic career been an opera singer, choral conductor, make-up artist, artistic director, dancer and choreographer. Her solid background in the performing arts has given her an ear to hear and an eye to see and remember the stories of life unfolding around her. The camera’s eye is the continuation and extension of her artist’s soul and skills.

Prism Point Photography, formed in 2005, is Ms. Vitale’s commercial studio for portrait work, events, theatrical photography and fine art photography. Feeling strongly about giving back to the community, she also photographs for various charities – Rebuilding Together Worcester, First Congregational Church in Paxton, Northborough Library and others. Her memberships include BNI (Business Networkers International), ASMP (American Society of Media Photographers), the Women’s Art Forum in Hopkinton and the Cultural Arts Alliance in Hudson. Her work currently can be seen in private collections and on her website. Ms. Vitale also has taught singing for over 40 years and continues to do so at her studio in Northboro.

For Jeanine, art, in all its forms, is the attempt to bring the untouchable mystery into the physical realm. Many people hunger for the opportunity to be creative. Digital photography has opened up a huge opportunity and outlet for the average person to explore this part of themselves. She loves teaching beginners in the art form. Happily, she has been able to carry that love of teaching into her recent classes of Basic Photography and Intro. To Photoshop for the Northborough and Sutton Free Libraries of Massachusetts.

Opening Reception - Jeanine M. Vitale: The Tree's Got the Moon

Meet photographer Jeanine Vitale at the opening reception for her exhibit The Tree's Got the Moon. Light refreshments will be served, sponsored by the Friends of the Library.

“The Tree’s Got The Moon”

A Photographic Exhibition of Images of Trees, the Moon and Moon Glow

Why trees? Why the moon?

I love trees. I’ve tried living in a city, in an apartment high above the ground and I just can’t do it. I need to touch the ground on a regular basis, and I need to be able to look up at trees, through them to the sky, see the sun peeking through leaves, feel their shade and their benevolence below on a hot, or even not so hot day, be amazed at their flowers in Spring and their flame colored leaves in Fall, glimpse stars and the moon through their bare branches in winter and feel connected to the universe and that mystery outside of myself. They are time. They are timeless. They are ever in the present no matter the season, the weather, day or night. They only give. They do not ask, “why”?

And the moon … I love the night sky. She is the queen of the night. She is mystery, a shape shifter, the creator of deep shadows, the collector of dreams. Only getting a limited, though lovely, view of the moon from my house and yard I am ever in search of new vantage points from which to see and photograph her lovely face. It’s a great excuse to be out at night. I’m grateful I live in a safe area.

With this exhibit I’m hoping to create an appreciation of trees in general, and an awareness of the need for darker skies so we can see the stars and moon in our own backyards. Both are gifts to us of outstanding year-round beauty.

The title of this exhibit comes from a line in a wonderful story/poem for children that I discovered while preparing this exhibit. As a couple of my favorite pictures feature a tree “capturing” the moon I thought it was a fitting title. The poem is, “The moon in the trees” by Jeffrey Ebright and is available free online. As I also enjoy writing I wanted to include poetry in this exhibit. The wonderful poets whose poems will accompany these pictures are all from  Hopkinton, MA. I became friendly with them and familiar with their poetry through attending the marvelous “Wake Up and Smell the Poetry” program hosted by Cheryl Perreault and that is recorded at HCAM Studios in Hopkinton.
