Two films for March 2:
ALAN MAGEE: MAINE MASTER
CABOT LYFORD: PORTRAIT OF A MAN AS ARTIST
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.
Cushing-based painter and printmaker Alan Magee (born 1946) is a modern master painter and printmaker. His paintings invite wonder at the inherent dignity and beauty of simple objects, such as letters, tools and stones. His monotypes offer haunting images of faces scarred by the world.
Dale Schierholt’s intimate portrait of Cabot Lyford offers the reflections of a master sculptor. Filmed primarily at his studio in New Harbor, Maine, Lyford is shown sculpting in wood, using mallet and chisel, chainsaw and sander. The boldness of his direct carving technique is matched by his sensitivity to the materials. He focuses on subjects he loves, whether wildlife or women.
