Opening Reception: Karine Kadiyska & Sandra Mayo I

6:00-8:00 pm
New Art Center, 61 Washington Park, Newtonville
In this exhibition NAC faculty member Karine Kadiyska and NAC student Sandra Mayo look inward and to the past to explore identity through quiet and expansive figurative works. For Kadiyska, the figure is ephemeral, moving from presence to absence in surreal sculptures and installation pieces that contemplate the inner self and the soul. Mayo explores her connection to the past through monoprints and collages from her “genogram” series that use a system of symbols to describe and expand upon familial connections and her place within the larger pattern of family history.

5th Annual Pan-Mass Riders Reception With Mayor Warren

7:00pm-9:00pm
Terry O'Reilly's Irish Pub 45 Union Street

On Wednesday, June 28, Mayor Setti Warren will host the 5th annual Pan-Mass Challenge Newton Riders Reception.

 

The Pan-Mass Challenge, founded in 1980, is an annual bike-a-thon that raises more money for charity than any other athletic charity event. In the 37 years since philanthropist Billy Starr founded the organization, the PMC has raised $500 million for adult and pediatric care at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through the Jimmy Fund. The challenge itself will take place on August 6 and 7, where cyclists will bike up to 192 miles with the goal of raising $46 million. The reception aims to raise awareness for the challenge and thank more than 170 riders who live in Newton.
