Market Days was its usual tremendous self again this year, and we were there to prove it happened.
The Mill Brook Gallery & Sculpture Garden is home to some pretty sweet looking art these days.

In case you missed the memo, strawberries are currently in season; and, might we add, very delicious. We checked out the picking action at Apple Hill Farm last week, and let’s just say we expect plenty of pies, smoothies and jams to be made in the not too distant future. Picking times are 8 a.m. to noon, Monday through Saturday, through the 89 Hoit Road entrance. The season runs through early July; and there’s also Rossview Farm,...
At Kimball-Jenkins, the month of June, at least for the last 12 years, has meant one thing – the spring student art show. Over 100 pieces grace the Carolyn Jenkins Gallery walls and will until July 3. So if you like art and lots of it, you should go check it out. Just make sure you’ve got some time ’cause there’s lots to look at.
In case you haven’t stopped by McGowan Fine Art recently, there’s a show going on featuring the work of Lucy Mink and Amparo Carvajal Hufschmid. And FYI, it will be on display through July 3.
The Barley House Wolves had their hurling home opener at Amoskeag Beverages in Bow on Saturday afternoon, and hurl they did! They defeated a visiting team from Hartford, and if we understood how the scoring went in hurling, we’d totally put the final score here. It was a perfect day for some good action, though, and there was plenty of opening-day pageantry – the teams walked onto the field to the sound of bagpipes and the first ball...
Every spring the ladies of the East Concord Garden Club break out their gardening gloves and tools and take to Pecker Memorial Park on Mountain Road as part of their community service projects. Here’s what we saw when we stopped by.

Since Ocean State Job Lots’s slogan is ‘Adventure Shopping,’ we headed down to find the most adventurous items in the store. It’s like a safari you take right here in Concord!
We introduced you to Gloria Najecki in the winter of 2014. She’s the one who does all the really cool paintings of dogs, but you probably could have guessed that by looking around these pages. Well, now it’s time to revisit Najecki cause her work is currently hanging in the Works Bakery Cafe on North Main Street and will be through the end of June. So next time you’re getting a bagel or coffee, check it out.
Dos Amigos recently began using its second kitchen area in the basement and it's really nice.

Susan Beere has spent the better part of the last quarter century creating ceramic tile art, ranging from large murals to small paintings. As you can tell from this selection, Beere is obviously a big fan of birds, baby birds and just about anything related to birds. In recent years, Beere has been working with free form tiles (like the giant hummingbird on the other page) that would certainly create quite a buzz among the cats in...

McGowan Fine Art is turning 35 this year, so what better way to celebrate than with a show highlighting a bunch of the gallery’s artists. Over 70 artists have graced the walls over the years, but this isn’t a trip down memory lane; all the work is new. The exhibit runs till May 29.
Time to learn about the fun-loving people behind the scenes of the Concord outdoors, um, scene
Apparently the St. Paul’s School’s fine arts department does more than just teach art – they also create it. Want proof? Stop by the school’s Hargate Gallery before May 30 and see for yourself. Just make sure you do it when the gallery is actually open, ’cause if not, you won’t be able to see very much. Filling the gallery are paintings, ceramics, photography and drawings created by faculty members Colin Callahan, Brian Schroyer,...
Want to know what amenities you can find at some of the city’s biggest parks? We did too, so we found out
For the second consecutive year, residents at Havenwood Heritage Heights teamed up with Dean and Meg Wilber of Mapletree Farm to tap trees on campus and make their own maple syrup. And for the second consecutive year, yum. This year’s yield was almost twice as much sap – 68 gallons compared to 40 last year – which led to almost two gallons of syrup, most of which was poured on delicious pancakes at a breakfast celebrating the haul...
Usually living animals inside a library would be a cause for concern, but not when they’re supposed to be there like last Thursday when Critters ‘N Creatures made a school vacation appearance.
