*The Newton Art Association hosts a virtual Artist Demonstration with Marjorie Kaye on Sculptural Painting this Thursday, March 10th at 7 p.m. Colorful and bold, Kaye’s gouache paintings and sculptures are kinetic and energetic. See a live demonstration of her work as an exploration of opposites: form and color; organic and geometric; precision and chaos. Join in on the “energetic and kinetic” discussion with the founder of Galatea Fine Art, a contemporary art gallery in Boston.
*Also on Thursday, March 10th at 7 p.m. curator Samuel Adams and The Urban Grape take you on a tasting tour of Art + Wine: Chile and Argentina at the New Art Center.

*On Saturday, March 12th at 7:30 p.m. The Newton Nomadic Theater will host The Nomad Story Slam, a great night of true stories based on the model of The Moth Radio Hour.
