Hikers and Bikers of All Ages are Encouraged to Join the Fun!

 Silver City-- This year marks the 20th anniversary of the town's purchase of Boston Hill, and town staff and members of the town's Trails and Open Space Committee invite trail and open space enthusiasts to join them in celebrating this recreational gem on Saturday, October 5.

"We invite hikers, bikers and outdoor enthusiasts of all ages to come out and explore the 300-plus acres of open recreational space," said Jaime Embick, community development director. "Dotted with the remains of our early mining history, Boston Hill is also historically and economically significant."

The festivities begin at 9:45 am with a guided, intermediate-level bike ride from the Cooper Street Trailhead. The ride is sponsored by the Silver City Cycling Club, and will be led by Tonya Sotelo. At 10:00 am, students from Aldo Leopold High School will lead hikers from the Spring Street Trailhead on a new trail they constructed earlier this year.

brownLifetime Silver City potter Kate Brown will be the invited guest artist at Lois Duffy Art for the RED DOT Weekend at the Galleries, on Oct. 11 – 14, 2019.  She is a master of slip-decorated terra cotta functional dinnerware, serving pieces and decorative tile. Kate has made many thousands of pots that now have an intimate place in daily lives and celebrations. Kate will also be featuring the first public showing of Santa Rita House: a work in progress, an animated short documentary, telling an important Grant County story from the 1950’s & 60’s.  A short talk will accompany the showing at 5:30pm on Saturday and 12:30pm on Sunday.

Lois Duffy will be exhibiting her latest large acrylic paintings including unique 3-D cube constructions. Meet the artists and enjoy refreshments at the Opening Reception on Saturday, October 12, from 3 to 7 pm and Sunday from 10 to 3pm. Weekend brochure available at: www.silvercityart.com
