Movie night at the Portland Museum of Art
This is a movie about my artists friends on Monhegan, the women who have mentored me. We have shown together on and off the island over the years since I joined WAMI in the early 90′s. Sadly, six have died since then, two this year: Frances Kornbluth and Elena Jahn. This film is a testament to the “art spirit” (as Robert Henri called it) alive and well in these indomitable women.
The Portland Museum of Art will be showing the movie on Thursday January 8 at 6:30 PM. The doors open at 6, film starts at 6:30, and lasts a little over one hour. A discussion with Mike Boucher, the filmmaker, Carl Little, author, and me will follow the screening.
The DVD will be for sale both in the PMA gift shop, and on-line via PayPal through Sonic Pictures: www.sonicpictures.com
