This weekend May 5th and 6th is the Lancaster ArtWalk! We’re super excited because we are bringing the film I, Claude Monet to the screen just for ArtWalk. On Saturday and Sunday we’ll have early shows at 11:00am so that you can start your ArtWalk tour with us and get inspired by the master as you fill the rest of your day with art all over the city. Tickets are available on our site or click here.
In I, Claude Monet the filmmaker Phil Grabsky profiles the artist’s life using 2,500 letters written by him. Told through Monet’s own words and shot on location at the very spots he painted, the film features his most loved paintings in an unforgettable, immersive art experience.
We will also be showing the works of Root 222 Crew in our lobby area gallery. A three man art team featuring work by Deric Hettinger, Anthony Mark and Schon Wanner. The group functions like a musical improvisational trio, creating provocative imagery simultaneously on the same canvases and wood panels.
In addition to the art and art film that we’re showing, there will be 2 other films playing all weekend including Quest, which is co-sponsored by the ACLU. They will be coming in on Friday May 4th and will have a table of resources that relate to the issues shown in the film. We’re lucky and excited to be working with them! Quest follows a family over a period of 10 years in Philadelphia showing how they grow and cope as a family. This is a MUST SEE!
Love After Love will also be playing all week. In the film mother Suzanne (Andie MacDowell) tentatively seeks companionship-but her attempts at dating only drive a wedge between her and older son Nicholas (Chris O’Dowd), whose own relationship with his girlfriend is disintegrating. Meanwhile, younger son Chris (James Adomian) deals with grief in his own complicated-and increasingly worrying-way. What plays out between the trio is a beautifully observed, powerfully emotional journey that speaks to the strength of family ties.
