This week

The Bowdoin College Museum of Art in Brunswick on Thursday opens “Methods for Modernism: Form and Color in American Art, 1900-1925.” The exhibition examines American encounters with and participation within European modernism. It opens with a reception at 5:30 p.m. Thursday and will remain on view through July 3.

Regular museum hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday to Saturday and 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday. On Thursdays, the museum remains open until 8:30 p.m. Admission is free. 

Portland Stage Company takes the veil off its newest production, “Mary’s Wedding,” beginning Tuesday night. This is a two-person play written by Canadian playwright Stephen Massicotte about two young lovers whose lives are torn apart by World War I. The play, with equal parts heartbreak and hope, stands as a testament to the power of love.

The theater previews “Mary’s Wedding” at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, and it opens at 7:30 p.m. Friday. It will remain in production through April 25. For tickets, call 774-0465 or visit www.portlandstage.org
