It is a rare art school graduate who can transition smoothly into a career as a full time artist. Many are taught. It is a valuable job that takes time. "Teaching people", featuring the work of 40 local teachers, is often aimed at focusing attention on the category of overlooked artists. (Find out more about The ARTery's Pamela Reynolds exhibition.)

Universe Rushing Apart: A Blue Kettle and We Go. By November 18 | Babson College, Wellsley

Carle Churchill's surrealist insight comes alive in the works of the Commonwealth Shakespeare Company's "Blue Kettle" and "Here We Go". First, reality and language become more and more slippery as you see the audience's plan unfold. Secondly, women groups wrestle with their mortality at the funeral of a man they know.
