"Cezanne in Provence" and "Anything is Possible"
Second Saturday Film Festival at 5:00 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall
"Second Saturday" is series of films on art and the people who create it. There is no admission fee for this series.
December's films focus on two visual artists, Paul Cezanne and William Kentridge.
Paul Cezanne is one of the most influential painters in the history of art. Picasso called him, "the father of us all," and even now he continues to inspire artists around the world. Yet he remained an enigmatic figure, devoted above all to his work and to his native Aix-en Provence region of France, until his death in 1906.
William Kentridge is a contemporary South African artist, who works in a variety of media including sculpture, drawing, animation, tapestry, film, theater, and opera. His production of Shostakovich's opera, The Nose, was recently reproduced at the Metropoliatan Opera. Last year MOMA had a spectacular show of a variety of his work.
Sponsored by the Unitarian Church of Staten Island’s Arts Program Committee. Harvey Rosensfit Event Coordinator.
