The art on display in the North River Art Society’s GAR Hall is a little different than in most galleries.
The walls inside the Marshfield Hills facility are decorated with more than 200 small pieces of art by as many artists ranging from teenage artists to local celebrities, including comedian Steve Carell.

Each of the works, done on 8-inch square gator board are now up for sale in a silent auction, but there’s a catch — none of the works are labeled.

This is the North River Art Society’s OTB, Outside The Box.
The anonymous exhibit, now in its fourth year, welcomes artists of all ages and backgrounds to create something, in any medium they choose, on the small canvas.

Mary Curran, one of the exhibit’s co-chairwomen, loves the idea of the event because she often has seen people buy art simply because of who created it and that strategy can’t apply here.

“You really have to like the art,” she said.

Jon Stewart’s directorial debut Rosewater, Reese Witherspoon’s naturalist weepie Wild and Jake Gyllenhaal’s noirish character study Nightcrawler are among the big films premiering at the Toronto Film Festival this year. The venerable festival, long considered a key stop for Oscar hopefuls, announced its Galas and Special Presentations lineup this morning, thus signaling the kick-off to this year’s awards season.

Several notable Cannes’ titles will also be making their North American and Canadian premieres, notably Foxcatcher, director Bennett Miller’s award-winning dramatization of the relationship between Olympic wrestling champions Mark and Dave Schultz (played by Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo) and schizophrenic multimillionaire John du Pont. Steve Carell’s performance as du Pont has a number of award-season pundits saying that the comedian may be a front-runner for the Best Actor Oscar. Cannes competition titles from Toronto’s favorite son David Cronenberg (Maps to the Stars) and Mike Leigh (Mr. Turner) will also be making their North American and Canadian premieres, respectively.

Disney is going on a trip with Brooklyn Family Robinson.

The studio has picked up the family adventure comedy with heart as a starring vehicle for Steve Carell.

Carell will produce the project with his partners at Carousel Productions, Charlie Hartsock and Vance DeGeneres. The trio are partnering with Disney-based David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman of Mandeville Films.

David Reynolds, who was nominated for an Oscar for co-writing Pixar’s 2003 classicFinding Nemo, is penning the script. The project is based on an original idea by Reynolds, Hartsock and Degeneres.

Plot details are vague in order to protect the project’s secrets, but it is known that Brooklyn Family Robinson centers on the patriarch of a family, to be played by Carell, who relocates his family from city life to island life.

Kristin Burr is overseeing for the studio.

Reynolds, who also worked on animated fare such as Atlantis: The Lost Empire and The Emperor’s New Groove, is repped by Gersh and Ziffren Brittenham.

The stars were out at Fenway Park on Saturday night.

During the Boston Red Sox’s game against the Kansas City Royals, NESN’s Gary Striewski sat down with actor Steve Carell, best known as Michael Scott on NBC’s TV show “The Office.” The two discussed Carell’s time on the hit show, as well as whether Carell could catch a foul ball if it came to him in the stands.

Carell even said he should run out to catch a fly ball in left field, and as he said that, the ball dropped in front of Jonny Gomes. Carell took as much blame from fans for the miscue as Gomes got. A tough crowd indeed.

Check out the video here for the full interview with Carell.

Mediaplanet: In what ways do you give back to the food allergy community?

Steve Carell: My wife Nancy and I have been active supporters of the food allergy community. We’ve hosted fundraisers, taken part in PSA campaigns, and volunteered our time. We are big fans of Dr. Kari Nadeau and the research that she is doing at Stanford.

MP: Why was it important to you to narrate and help produce the Discovery Channel and FARE’s documentary, “An Emerging Epidemic: Food Allergies in America”?

SC: Obviously, it’s important that we raise money to support food allergy research, but I think that it’s equally important to raise people’s awareness. The documentary “Food Allergies in America” attempted to dispel some of the myths associated with food allergies and to help people better understand them.

MP:  As a dedicated family man, how do you help manage your daughter’s dairy allergy?

SC: We closely read ingredients. I have become acutely aware of foods that can be dangerous, as has our daughter. It involves constant vigilance. It also takes planning.

If we know that we will be in a situation where we can’t be sure about the food’s safety, we will pack our own. Kids with allergies should still feel they are a part of things like birthday parties, Halloween, and other special events involving food.  At the same time, we have to be sure that these moments are safe and happy ones.

MP:  What is one of your most unforgettable moments as a father?

SC: My most unforgettable moment as a father was the first one.  That moment when you first see your child is the best.

MP: What advice would you give to concerned parents with allergy prone children?

SC: Living with food allergies can be extremely difficult, but should be approached in a positive, proactive way.  We all have to eat.  There is no avoiding it.  So much of our lives revolve around food. Children with food allergies often feel separated from much of the world around them.

I think that the key is to find ways to allow kids with food allergies to participate. I also think that it’s important to support allergy research, because every day they are coming closer to a permanent cure for food allergies. So there is hope.

MP:  What are three things you keep stocked in your refrigerator at all times?

SC:  Pickles, strawberries, and turkey bacon.
