Film: Long Shot

Film: Long Shot

Fred Flarsky is a gifted and free-spirited journalist who has a knack for getting into trouble. Charlotte Field is one of the most influential women in the world — a smart, sophisticated and accomplished politician. When Fred unexpectedly runs into Charlotte, he soon realizes that she was his former baby sitter and childhood crush. When Charlotte decides to make a run for the presidency, she impulsively hires Fred as her speechwriter — much to the dismay of her trusted advisers.

Directed by Jonathan Levine.

Monica Rizzio, Texas bred and Cape Cod washashore

Monica Rizzio, Texas bred and Cape Cod washashore

Brandon Music is delighted to welcome back country singer-songwriter Monica Rizzio on Friday June 14th at 7:30pm. No stranger to the east coast music scene, Texas-bred and Cape Cod washashore. Monica Rizzio is fast becoming one of the finest singer songwriters that call New England home.Monica Rizzio is a most talented multi-instrumentalist – an accomplished guitarist, originally a flautist, she also plays violin, ukulele, mandolin and piano. She has a compelling voice both rustic and refined that Mark Erelli, American singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist describes as,

“equal parts tenderness and sass. She reminds me of a slightly duskier Nanci Grith.”

When performing with Tom Rush, American folk and blues singer and songwriter he said of Rizzio,
“ I made the tactical error of inviting Monica Rizzio to share the stage with me at Symphony Hall and she went and stole the audience right out from under me!”

Monica Rizzio is definitely on a journey to spread her music far and wide.

All You See Is Glory; Big Stars and Maritime Moments photographs by Peter Cunningham

All You See Is Glory; Big Stars and Maritime Moments photographs by Peter Cunningham

Rock n’ roll stars are paired with island photographs from Peter Cunningham’s life on Grand Manan Island in the Canadian Bay of Fundy. “Everywhere we turn, life we’ve known is disappearing before our eyes,” Cunningham said. “Whether it’s trust, values, common sense, or simply home grown vegetables, we feel familiar worlds slipping away.” In time, this island and these big stars will fade away, but Peter Cunningham’s powerful photographs have captured their beauty and glory for all time.

Peter Cunningham's work has been exhibited in New York, Krakow, London, Paris, Tokyo, Beijing, and Berlin. He teaches “Photography as Zen Practice” in the U.S. and China, and is co-author with Peter Matthiessen of “Are We There Yet? A Zen Journey through Space and Time.” Cunningham’s teachers include Baptist fisherman Lester Tate, improvisational dancer Martha Myers, French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson, Zen Master Bernie Glassman, and singer-songwriter Janis Ian.

Retrospective of Two Generations

Retrospective of Two Generations

Hallie Richards Monroe's stained glass work uses contemporary and traditional vitreous glass painting techniques, that are fired in a kiln and are fused to the surface of the glass. Sometimes she uses sand blasting and etching with hydrofluoric acid to effect the surface of the glass. Then the glass pieces are assembled into a stained glass panel, using cooper foil or lead came to hold all the puzzle pieces together. Hallie's passion of illustration gives me the desire to incorporate conceptual imagery and the beauty of nature into most of her artwork. She has been doing stained glass commissions for over 35 years.

Oldcastle Theatre Company Presents: Red

Oldcastle Theatre Company Presents: Red

Playwright John Logan's Tony Award winning Best Play, "Red", opens with master abstract expressionist Mark Rothko having just launched the biggest commission in the history of modern art, a series of murals for New York's famed Four Seasons Restaurant. Rothko works feverishly with his young assistant, Ken, in his studio on the Bowery. But when Ken gains the confidence to challenge him Rothko faces the agonizing possibility that his crowning achievement could also be his undoing. The New York Times called the play: "Intense and exciting." the New Yorker: "smart. eloquent entertainment." The play will feature long time Oldcastle favorite Peter Langstaff who recently was in the Capital Rep production of "Shakespeare in Love" in Albany, and Brendan McGrady who made his Oldcastle debut in last season's "Long Days' Journey into Night." A graduate of NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, McGrady recently appeared at Luna Stage Company, and with the Park Avenue Players.

Scattered Geometry; The Ceramics of Jenny Swanson & Holly Walker

Scattered Geometry; The Ceramics of Jenny Swanson & Holly Walker

Jenny Swanson’s high-fire wall pieces, each one a unique microcosm, are inspired by the art of India, and by floating lotuses she was intrigued by during her residency in Shangyu, China. Also on view are her unglazed, low-fire sculptural vessels carbonized in saggars, in bottle and funnel-like forms. Swanson’s innovative work gracefully curves and undulates.

In contrast, Holly Walker’s terracotta forms are Shakeresque and utilitarian. Rolled coils of clay are glazed with bold colors that are playful, saturated, and luminous. Walker’s painterly designs are geometric, floral, and sometimes alphabetical. Walker’s colorfully patterned rectangular palettes and disc shapes are the foil to Jenny Swanson’s silky black and white ceramics.

OPENING RECEPTION JULY 13, 5-7pm, with Artists' Talk
