The Boston Ballet’s Mirrors at the Boston Opera House

In their final production of the season, “Mirrors,” the Boston Ballet has indeed seasoned its repertory with more than a whiff of modernity, a crackle of contemporary challenge and even a soupcon of angst.

Nowhere Everywhere

Looking for Direction at Thompson Gallery by Ali Russo It’s the first piece I see and, from a distance, it almost looks like a photograph: a man and his son stand on the sidewalk of a crowded, urban, black and white street, the man’s attention held entirely by the phone in his palm.

LeBow in Groton

Unleashing What Lies Beneath by Elizabeth Michelman Ellen Raquel LeBow’s large sgraffito paintings in her “Every border can be cross” exhibition at the Groton School resemble the familiar grade-school project of scratching designs through a wax-covered board to reveal variegated color.
