Artist’s Reel: The 100 Years Show & Anne Truitt, Working
June 8, 2017 6 – 7PM
Films selected by artist Pete Schulte
In The 100 Years Show, we follow Carmen Herrera as she approaches her 100th birthday. A pioneering abstract painter in the ’40s and ’50s, she has recently found the recognition that eluded her for most of her career. Directed by Alison Klayman, the film follows Herrera’s life demonstrating the power of artistic vision to sustain itself. Anne Truitt Working presents a short portrait of artist Anne Truitt (1921-2004) speaking about the course and meaning of her work. Filmed in and around her studio at the Yaddo artist colony, as well as at her home studio in Washington D.C. by Director Jem Cohen.
Eat popcorn with us and watch “Anne Truitt Working” directed by Jem Cohen and “The 100 Years Show” directed by Alison Klayman this Thursday, June 8 6 – 7PM.
