Bottles, bags, and biography

Bottles filled with colored water, pennies, marbles, plastic bags, paper cups, and other everyday items get a loving treatment that exposes their innate beauty.

Pictured: Feher’s “Blossom.” Daily 10-5 p.m. (through Sept. 15). $14; $12 seniors; $10 students; free under 13, active-duty military personnel and their families, everyone on first Wed of the month.

Dreamy sounds Even though this band travels throughout Europe, Canada, and beyond, it calls Boston home. Growing up musically in local clubs, Naftule’s Dream was originally a side project of Shirim Klezmer Orchestra members. The band plays new Jewish music, kind of a chicken soup of klezmer, new jazz, and rock.
