Adam Pendleton: Elements of Me – This weekend is your last chance to see Adam Pendleton’s work at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum before the next show goes up!

Three basic shapes—square, triangle, and circle—are the refrains in this room-sized installation.

Saturday, November 7th
Ignite, A Night Out – This en plein air gastronomic gala, brought to you by the Somerville Arts Council will take place at restaurants throughout Union Square. Each eatery will feature special fiery dishes and libations to warm you up. Diners are encouraged to dress up in festive and toasty attire; so come as an arctic explorer, Sasquatch, or don your giraffe onesie. We’ll have lighting and art displays in the heart of the square—all to create a festive light-filled atmosphere as the days get darker and colder. Ignite is a chance to taste something new, be festive, and support Union Square restaurants! Oh yeah, it’s B.Y.O.B. (bring your own blanket). We will be following all city safety protocols. We ask that people wear masks at all times while walking around the square and to maintain strict social distancing.

Waldo Evan Jespersen: Hoc Modo – Hoc Modo is the latest solo show of internationally-exhibited sculptor Waldo Evan Jespersen. Known for his large-scale work in a variety of media, some of Jespersen’s previous sculptures include vast paper expanses (Paper Cloud, 2017) and two-story glowing wooden towers (Tower Two, 2015). His art is detached from any particular medium, and instead deeply grounded in the process of elegantly resolving challenging situations. A twisting cylinder of aluminum tubes, each singing a beautiful note when struck, will fill the gallery space.

Sunday, November 8th
Kane’s Donuts “Pops Up” at Boston Harbor Distillery – Kane’s Donuts and Boston Harbor Distillery (BHD) have once again come together to host a pop-up at the distillery’s iconic home in Port Norfolk, Dorchester on Sunday, November 8, 2020. The pop-up features eight tried-and-true Kane’s flavors. In addition to the pop-up, Boston Harbor Distillery will be running their regularly scheduled tours and tastings, along with serving an assortment of delicious cocktails.

Farmers Market at the Charles Hotel – The Charles River Farmers Market Association has put together a market where you can get fresh, local ingredients for your family’s table. Start with the freshly picked seasonal fruits, berries and vegetables. Grab a fresh baguette, then cheese and honey to match. Make some molto buono pasta, and grab some meat for the grill. Relax, and enjoy the Charles River Farmers’ Markets!
