*On February 2nd at 5:30 pm Newton Art Association hosts the opening reception for From the Heart, a juried exhibit featuring work by over 60 artists inspired by Maya Angelou’s wise words: “All great artists draw from the same resource: the human heart, which tells us that we are all more alike than we are unalike.” Using those words, artists have examined ideas that range from personal heartbreaks and joys to more universal concepts of inclusivity, cooperation, unity, and creativity. Find more info about the exhibit running from January 27 – March 10 at the Mosesian Center for the Arts.
