About Somerville
map
Somerville Massachusetts is an urban industrial city located northwest of Boston along the divide between the lower Charles and Mystic River watersheds. In its earliest history Somerville served as the grazing lands for the residents and farmers of Charlestown and had only a few scattered permanent settlements. This is a sharp contrast to the Somerville of today which is comprised of 4.1 square miles and has a total population of over 77,400 people making it the most densely populated community in New England!

Somerville was established as a town in 1842 and its population grew in leaps and bounds from that time forward. Many of the new settlers worked in the brick yards producing as many as 1.3 million bricks a year by hand or 5.5 million with a new press. At its highest point in production the town was turning out 24 million bricks being made in 12 brick yards in the city.

By the end of 1851, heavy industry was prominent here and was soon followed by rolling and slitting mills, iron works and manufacturers of steam engines and boilers. With the establishment of the street car lines, Somerville's population again exploded growing to six times its number between 1870 and 1915. The scale of the meat packing industry earned Somerville the reputation as the Chicago of New England. The city's population reached its peak during the Second World War when almost 106,000 people were said to create a density greater than that of Calcutta!

Closely built two families and triple-deckers fill the city to house its dense and diversified people. Today, Somerville is a mix of blue-collar families, young professionals and recent immigrants. It is known for its large number of city squares which help mark neighborhood boundaries. Among those most active today are Davis Square, Union Square, Ball Square, Teele Square and Magoun Square.

"Creative License: A New Musical"
Musical Comedy Creative License Shows Power of Love, Art and Double-Malt Scotch

With witty banter Aaron Sorkin would approve of, Creative License follows Casey and Bethany, two friends (or perhaps more than friends?) who haven't spoken for a year. Casey is struggling with a failing relationship and a bad case of writer's block as he attempts to create the "next big thing." Bethany is stuck in a relationship rut and an overwhelming job working for a demented drama professor. Can the two come together to produce the professor's "magnum opus" and save Casey's fledgling career as an artist? Creative License is a rocking musical written and directed by Kevin Cirone, host and writer for the popular Bye Bye Liver: The Boston Drinking Play. It's a testament to the power of art, friendship and a good glass of scotch.

Refreshment stand: a refreshment stand will be set up in the atrium to the field house. Coffee and donuts will be available during the early hours of the fair. Lunch items will be for sale throughout the day.

Operations

Set-Up will take place from 7:30am to 9:00am. There will be a drop off area in front of the field house, which is wheelchair accessible. Crafters are then requested to remove their cars to the specific parking area in order to provide maximum amount of parking in front of facility for customers. Assignment of spaces in the hall will be made according to the crafts being sold and needs. We will attempt to place people in such a way that artisans will not be selling the same craft side by side. Assignments will be given at the registration table the day of the fair. Table requests can not be guaranteed.

Care of the Premises: No part of your exhibit may be nailed, pasted or affixed to the wall in such a way as to damage the facility. A covering is being placed over the special athletic floor in order to prevent such damage. Please avoid eating in the hall if possible. Crafters will be the only people allowed to eat in the hall at their exhibit, if they do not have relief coverage for their display. It is against city and fire department regulations to smoke in this public facility.

Crafters must not remove their items from display before fair closes at 3:00pm. If this occurs, future invitations to this fair will not be extended.

 Publicity

Advertising: Extensive advertising will be done in order to make this a successful fair for both you and our organization. We will promote the fair in local newspapers, Boston papers, fliers, cable television, and banners in high traffic areas. We will also provide fliers to the crafters for the purpose of distribution, upon your request. If you have any other suggestions in this area, please let us know.

 

Raffles

Hourly Door Prizes: Given away free. Free raffle tickets given to every person walking through the door.

Free Raffle to Buyers of your Craft: A free raffle will be held for customers who make purchases from you. They will be given one free raffle ticket for each item purchased. We do everything possible to encourage people to spend their money!

Vendor Raffles are not allowed. As the sponsor of the fair, we will be conduction the only raffle. Crafters who wish to donate an item to our table will have their craft displayed with their name and space assigned.

Glass Shop Tool Training JULY

Description:If you want to access the glass shop without supervision or if you want to learn about shop safety and best practices for your own shop, take this class.  We will cover everything that can be covered about the safety of working with glass, setting up an annealer, connecting a torch to oxygen and propane, and glass thermodynamics and chemistry.  After taking the course there will be a test at the torch and a take home written test. After successful completion students can use the shop any time their membership allows. All students must have at least three hours of formal training at a glass torch to take this class or consent from the instructor or studio manager.

Class Goals:

Students will learn to do the following tasks in order to be able to work independently in the glass shop at Artisan's Asylum as members:

  • Check for gas leaks
  • Set up oxy-propane system
  • Establish a neutral flame
  • Program the annealing oven
  • Make a large gather
  • Clean shop

Prerequisites:

Students must have at least 3 hours training in flameworking, and be at least 18 years old.

Materials Provided:

All materials are provided.

What to Bring:

Bring water in a sealable container and wear closed-toe shoes and clothing made of natural materials.

Instructor Biography:

Michael Soroka is a robotics engineer turned glass worker with several years of training and experience teaching safe glass working techniques. He built the Glass Shop at Artisan's Asylum and works at multiple studios around New England as a glass artist and glass engineering consultant. When he's not at a torch, he's most likely biking around somewhere in the woods. 

Event Time:

Monday, July 28, 7-10pm


REFUNDS: We offer full refunds for any class cancellations more than three days in advance of the class start date. After that point refunds are contingent upon the Asylum being able to fill the seat. No refunds whatsoever are offered for same-day cancellations.

Beyond the Cloud Hype: Achieving cost-efficiency and flexibility with hybridized environments

You're invited to a lunch at learn at our Boston data center!

The hype around hybridization has been steadily growing in the IT industry, yet many IT professionals still don't have a clear understanding of the concept or its benefits.

Though many limit the concept to hybrid clouds (a combination of two or more types of cloud deployment models), hybridization extends beyond cloud and includes all of the various types of hosting environments.

Whether or not the hosting environment involves on-premise, off-premise, colocation, third-party managed or dedicated hosting services or within a private or public IaaS, what really matters is the ability for an IT organization to mix and match environments to easily address a given application requirement.

Join us for lunch as we cut through the clutter to clearly define hybridization, explain how it can benefit your organization and illustrate how Distil Networks leverages a hybrid infrastructure.
