Free

This event is cancelled due to weather. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Two Films for February 2:
DAHLOV IPCAR: MAINE MASTER
DAVID DRISKELL: IN SEARCH OF THE CREATIVE TRUTH

The Georges River Land Trust and The Highlands Coffee House host MAINE MASTERS ON MONDAYS, a film series. This exciting series of films celebrate the local artists that have long been inspired by the natural beauty that living in Maine evokes. Films screen at 6:30 PM on the first Monday of each month in January, February and March with a special finale film featured in April. The Maine Masters films are being shown with a suggested donation of $5 to cover the filmmaker’s screening costs.

DAHLOV IPCAR: MAINE MASTER
A New Englander by birth, Dahlov Ipcar (born 1917) was introduced to Maine by her parents, artists William and Marguerite Zorach. Ipcar, whose first solo show took place at the Museum of Modern Art, has gained wide recognition through her marvelous paintings of animals and her many children’s books.

DAVID DRISKELL: IN SEARCH OF THE CREATIVE TRUTH
In Search of the Creative Truth is a story about one of today’s most important artists and leading authorities on African American art. The film captures Driskell making collages inspired by his mentor Romare Bearden, documents him in conversation with National Gallery curator Ruth Fine, and painting at his easel in his Falmouth, Maine studio. The film also explores the give and take of his creative relationship with master print maker, Curlee Holton. It all results in powerful works that pull from abstract expressionism, African art/masks, Coptic art, modernism, cubism—the history of all art in the works of this wise and gentle man.

This event is cancelled due to weather. We apologize for the inconvenience.
