Get out your beret, Repressed Cinema is presenting 16mm shorts that
examine artists and the creation of fine art. Five short subjects are
presented, each a rumination on an individual American artist and their
process and background in the endeavors of painting or sculpture. First,
George Kuchar will give us a portrait of mixed media artist Betty
Holiday. Oil painting will be represented in the evening with three
films including an examination of the life and work of painter Ben Shahn
who painted the iconic work "Handball". You will also see views of the
1970's New York art world. Lastly, an inspiring film about a "found
object" sculptor from the '60s who makes things in a junkyard. Mostly
presented on glorious 16mm film! If you are an artist or an art
appreciator you will not want to miss these unique short films examining
the American artistic spirit.
Special door prizes for those who come
wearing a beret!
Underground Comix for sale in the lobby as usual.
