Our roundup of the latest arts and entertainment news from Wellesley MA:

Dana Hall School hosts fiber art exhibition

The Dana Hall Art Gallery presents Windows and Mirrors, until November 19. The exhibit features the work of Boston-area textile artist Clara Nartey, a parent of a senior from Dana Hall.

“This exhibit, Windows and Mirrors, is my way of telling young people that I see and hear them,” Nartey said in a statement.

The gallery had been closed for a year and a half, but is now open to the public.

Located in the classroom building, the Dana Hall Art Gallery is open Monday through Friday 9 am to 3:30 pm Due to COVID-19 protocols, please email [email protected] before planning your visit. The gallery is closed on weekends and school
vacation. The campus now welcomes visitors, but not in the dining hall.

Residents of Wellesley in TCAN’s “Harvey” production

It’s good to see the live theater again in action, in person.

Sylvia Czubarow and Cathy Merlo of Wellesley are part of the cast of TCAN in the production of “Harvey” by Natick, November 5-14.

Tickets cost $ 22, $ 20 for TCAN members and $ 17 for
seniors ($ 12 on Sundays) and can be purchased at the box office at 508-647-0097 or online at

Mary Chase’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play is the story of Elwood P. Dowd, a kind but eccentric man
with a very strange best friend, an invisible six foot three and a half inch bunny named Harvey.

TCAN is located at 14 Summer Street in Natick and the theater is wheelchair accessible.

More electrical box art

Three other electrical boxes in Wellesley are painted by local artists. Goldfish, hot air balloons and a child with binoculars are the themes this time around. The organizers discussed the works recently at a board meeting (about 7 minutes after Wellesley Media taped).

We caught high school student Evelyn Harrison painting the box in Church Park outside Village Church as the Boston Marathon was racing. It was very early, so be sure to see the finished product.

You can learn more about the painted electrical boxes and artists in the city via an online map.

From art in the park to art in the window

The individual quilt sections made at the Art in the Park event during Wellesley’s Wonderful Weekend have been sewn together and are now displayed in otherwise empty store windows at the west end of Wellesley Square on Central Street.
