Photographer Eva Timothy has said that folks like Sir Isaac Newton and Galileo were not much different than we are. "These people were not simply born to greatness," she says. "They were individuals who cultivated such a powerful sense of creative curiosity that nothing could stop them from fulfilling their desires for discovery." Satisfy your creative curiosity at Timothy's "Lost in Learning" visual investigation of the Renaissance through black-and-white photos of great historical figures positioned alongside their manuscripts and artifacts. Through March 20; talk and reception at 6 p.m. Friday (Feb. 13). Free. The New England Institute of Art Gallery on the Plaza, Washington Street at Route 9, Brookline. 617-582-4617.
