Newton Cultural Alliance | Highlights Arts & Culture | Things To Do |
*Theater Ink brings a new production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee starting tonite through Saturday, December 11th at 7:30 p.m. An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout inducing, life un-affirming “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Purchase your tickets here before the ding of the bell.
*Come on down to The New Art Center @ Trio this weekend and get two gifts in one. The New Art Shop has tons of beautiful artwork for sale by artists for artists and the gallery has a stellar show called Creative Process on display through Saturday, January 01, 2022. Creative Process is the 2021 Andrew & Jean Dibner Student and Faculty Show with explorations of paint, pastels, and ceramics that represent one year of creation through a colorful lens. Discover the Creative Process and stroll the New Art Shop.
*It’s your last chance to apply to Exhibit Your Art at the Newton Free Library in one of their two galleries. Proposals are due by Friday, December 10th at 11:59 p.m. for April – December 2022 exhibits. As one of the busiest public library buildings in Massachusetts, the galleries are highly sought after and well-loved by library patrons. Applications are welcomed from any artist in the New England region showing two-dimensional works. Apply here to Exhibit Your Art at the library!
*Join in on the singing fun with Tis the Season for Polyphony presented by Amherst Early Music. Attend this virtual voice class with Amy Bearden on Saturday, December 11th at 1:00 p.m. Ring in the upcoming Winter holidays with polyphony which is traditionally sung at this time of the year! This class will be a play-through, repertoire reading class with carols, antiphony, polyphony, and so much more. Warm-up those caroling voices with an Amherst Early Music class.
*The Scandinavian Cultural Center presents a watercolor exhibit with Marty Lehman this December. Former architect, and Scandinavian Charitable Society board member, Lehman’s subjects include painting buildings, cityscapes, landscapes, and “all things Swedish.” This is Lehman’s fourth exhibition at the SCC which features a collection of recent watercolors. Come down and check out Marty Lehman’s vision of “all things Swedish.”
