  • - Paintings and the Quilts that Inspired Them
    A joint venture of the County Line Quilters and the Framingham Artists' Guild

    Last year, to enormous acclaim, the County Line Quilters and the Framingham Artists’ Guild held a joint exhibition called Stitches and Strokes: Quilts and the Paintings that Inspired Them. Using the artists’ paintings as their creative starting point, the quilters made fiber artworks. When shown side-by-side the results were dazzling!

    The whole process and the relationship was so much fun that we did not want it to end. Reversing roles, this year the Framingham Artists' Guild chose quilts made by the County Line Quilters to be the stimulus for their paintings. The result is our new show entitled Stitches and Strokes Switched: Paintings and the Quilts that Inspired Them.

  • | 1:00pm - 4:00pm | Arts and Entertainment, exhibit, museum
    - Set against a backdrop of Framingham images and artifacts, this exhibit features fashions that will both please the eye and illuminate the lives of some very special Framingham women. We’ve chosen pieces that reflect the social mores, economic status and the personalities behind the ever-present decision we all face daily - what to wear?

    Did you know that you can read clothing like any other historical document? It’s simply a matter of understanding the language. We’ll illustrate this language as you compare the ethereal wedding dress worn by Anna Foster Haven in 1824 with the austere gown worn by the devout Mrs. Temple on her wedding day in 1772. We’ve set the stage for you to experience the intimate setting of an 1880s salon where Framingham women entertained their closest friends adhering to the international trends that dictated appropriate dress and décor. Experience the Roaring Twenties by reading an Art Deco inspired dress worn by a very independent local actress and theatre director.

    Location: Edgell Memorial Building – 3 Oak Street, Framingham, MA
    Parking: Please park on 3 Oak St. (street parking available) or in the Village Hall lot (2 Oak St.)
    Hours: 1:00-4:00 p.m., Wednesday through Saturday, October 28, 2016 – April 29, 2017
    Admission: Free for FHC Members, $5 for Non-Members, $2 per FSU ID.

    - Greater Miami, the History of the Rest of Us

    Drawing on his award-winning book, A World More Concrete, N. D. B. Connolly, Professor of History at John Hopkins University, explores the workings of capital in
    the urban Atlantic World. Through a history of Greater Miami, he argues for understanding racial segregation as a process of colonial extraction. He also asks us to consider the development of American politics as a consequence of land deals and rent-seeking practices that were at once transnational, regional, and interpersonal.

    Evidence shows that participating in a bereavement group can help facilitate the healing process.

    Our support groups are open to both CareGroup Parmenter Hospice families as well as general members of the community who are grieving the loss of a loved one. The groups are led by licensed mental health clinicians with expertise in bereavement.

    There is no fee to participate in a group, but registration is required.

  • | 8:00pm - 11:00pm | Arts and Entertainment, singer/songwriter
    - Amy Black is a touring singer/songwriter originally living in Boston, now based in Nashville, who has received critical acclaim for her original music, soulful vocals and her energetic stage performance.

    Black’s third solo release, “The Muscle Shoals Sessions” (June 2015) was recorded at historic FAME studios in her family’s homeland of Muscle Shoals, AL and features Spooner Oldham, the McCrary Sisters and Will Kimbrough. The result was, "a blend of sultry desire, ardent passion...a sound that’s both tough and tender” (Relix). "To showcase her true potential as a bluesy, R&B heavy hitter, Amy Black had to go home. Black’s soulful chops shine.” (Elmore)

    Recording the album at FAME, Black never fails to nail the spot where gospel, blues and R&B collide — and transform into soul. Blues in Britain wrote, “Black Is blessed with a deeply soulful voice that melds elements of Dusty Springfield, Mavis Staples and Alberta Hunter.” Inspired by Etta James, Wilson Pickett, Aretha Franklin, Mavis Staples and so many others who recorded some of modern music’s most iconic songs in this little Alabama hamlet, Black’s project pays homage to magic made at both FAME and Muscle Shoals Sound Studio, as well as to her beloved grandparents, and the cherished memories she carries of childhood sojourns.

    - Paul Richards (Los Angeles), Bert Lams (Belgium) and Hideyo Moriya (Tokyo), three wise men (from distant lands) with guitars, are gassing up the reindeer for their first North American Holiday Tour!

    The California Guitar Trio kicks off a year of festivities, in celebration of 25 years of their genre–busting partnership, with this magical seasonal offering. Masters of classical compositions and classic rock, surf guitar and sonic experimentation, the California Guitar Trio trims your tree with holiday standards from around the world- timeless, as “Silent Night,” and timely, as John and Yoko’s “Happy Xmas (War is Over).” Unwrap a poignant, passionate rendition of “Greensleeves,” and a hypnotic “Carol of the Bells” which is a favorite on Pandora Radio’s Holiday Music station.

    Of course, the show features CGT’s captivating storytelling and wit, interwoven with intricate, unexpected arrangements, the hallmarks of this instrumental super-group, whose music once awakened the astronauts on the space shuttle Endeavor.

    Fans can expect favorites from California Guitar Trios’ beloved repertoire, as well as an “altogether warmhearted reckoning of Christmas carols and other pleasantries” (iTunes), with selections from their release, A Christmas Album. The recording has racked up an astounding 30 million plays on Pandora, with nearly five million in 2016 alone!

    Forget the shopping and holiday stress! Gather with family, friends and your community for some comfort and joy with a show yule always remember!

  • | 10:30am - 11:30am | Religious Events, worship, meditation, interfaith, spiritual
    - Sunday Circles are sacred times for worship and reflection. We sing together, pray together, share our spiritual gifts and truths, and listen for God’s transforming word as it speaks to us as a community and as individuals. Worship is participatory, rooted in a Christian faith that is open to all faiths. We engage in interfaith exploration and dialogue, and often enrich our worship services with poetry, meditation, drumming, folk songs, and other artistic, spiritual and cultural elements.
