After a generation of pop, op, minimalism, conceptualism and installation art, some artists are returning to the idea that a painting is an image wanting to be recognized. "Reality Check" is a group show at Mill River Gallery presenting the work of 30 regional artists who are negotiating a return to representational art.Many of the artists formerly worked in an abstract style. Gallery director Mary Cate-Carroll says a common thread running through the work is a desire to reconnect with audiences and tradition.

Dawn Upshaw will sing with BSODawn Upshaw has become one of the great stars of the vocal world, a soprano who possesses remarkable beauty of sound and still more remarkable intelligence and musicality. She and BSO music director David Zinman are longtime partners: two of their records together have won Grammys, and their disc of Henryk Gorecki's Symphony No. 3 is one of the biggest-sellers (more than 500,000 copies sold and still going) in the history of classical music. Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8:15 p.m., Upshaw will make another of her always much-anticipated visits to Meyerhoff Hall to collaborate with Zinman and the BSO. She will sing three concert arias by Mozart and the world premiere of Robert Beaser's song cycle, "The Heavenly Feast."
