Upcoming activities to educate and entertain

Music, film and art lovers will have three reasons to visit Waterstone at Wellesley over the next week—we’re hosting a concert featuring an a cappella performance, a film discussion on Hitchcock’s “Spellbound” and a lecture on the famed landscape painter Winslow Homer.

The concert is the second of our Summer Courtyard Concert Series and will feature East Coast Acappella, a group of five a cappella performers who love doo wop and classic hits. The group features Waterstone regular Rick Walsh. Join us tomorrow night for the concert and enjoy the harmonies of East Coast Acappella as the sun sets over Waterstone’s inviting courtyard.

Then, on Sunday, film critic Dan Kimmel will return to Waterstone to discuss Alfred Hitchcock’s 1945 classic thriller “Spellbound,” which stars Ingrid Bergman and Gregory Peck. The film, which dealt heavily with the practice of psychoanalysis, tells the story of a psychoanalyst (Ingrid Bergman) who suspects the new director (Gregory Peck) of the mental hospital where she works is not who he claims to be. You can read this list of the five things you may not know about the movie to get you ready!

Finally, on Tuesday, artist, educator and Art Matters owner Jane Blair will give a lecture on artist Winslow Homer, who is considered to be one of the greatest American landscape painters of the nineteenth century. Winslow began his artistic career as an illustrator before turning to painting, favoring oils and watercolors. Blair will have blown-up copies of Homer’s work during her lecture for easy viewing.

We hope you’ll join us!
