Kathleen Mellen’s best bets


I’d like to say I discovered artist Chris Demarest, but, of course, that wouldn’t be true. I can say, however, that I recognized his talent for portraiture when we were students at Amherst High School, in the late e_SSRq60s. Back then, I asked him to do a portrait (not of me), which still hangs on the wall of my home. So I was delighted to see a selection of his portraits of World War II vets at the Jones Library. He’ll talk about the exhibit Saturday at 10 a.m., 43 Amity St.


I’d also like to say I discovered actor Elaine Bromka — but that would be equally untrue. I did, however, watch her develop her craft in the early 1970s, when she was at Smith College. Wednesday at 8 p.m., for one performance only, Bromka will perform “Tea for Three: Lady Bird, Pat and Betty” at Chester Theater. chestertheatre.org
