The screening will be taking place behind the silos adjacent to Hermitage, along the tracks at full dark. You are asked to arrive by 9pm.
This film was shot between 1966-1970 and edited over a two year period ending in July 1982. Hours For Jerome (as in a Book of Hours) is an arrangement of images, energies, and illuminations from daily life. These fragments of light revolve around the four seasons. Part One is spring through summer. Part Two is fall and winter.
16mm color. 45 minutes.
We will be screening this film outside Hermitage behind the silos and right alongside the railroad track. The film will begin at full dark, so please arrive by 9 O'clock. This film is a rare treat and has been out of circulation and experimental film programs for some time. Don't miss this opportunity to view this beautiful film by a world renowned film maker working in silent film projected at silent speed projection.
(18 frames per second vs. sound speed at 24 frames per second).

Of course, Second Saturday is coming up, and there are openings going on. There's the stencil show at Open Space, Zahra's Studio is proclaiming June National Graffiti Month with City Folk. There' s an artist reception happening for Carla Goldberg at Zuzu's in the old Cthonic space. Fovea Exhibitions is kicking off a monthly summer screening and jazz program.
So yes, there is a lot going on. My head will again be above water by then, and hopefully I'll be around for for everything, if not, I'll catch up soon when I have a chance to breathe more easily next week.
By the way, the CCS Hessel Museum at Bard College is having an opening on the fourteenth as well featuring work by MICHAEL BEUTLER, ESRA ERSEN AND KIRSTINE ROEPSTORFF in the CCS galleries and Bik Vander Pol interacting with the Hessel collection in the museum's galleries.

I donned long pants and accompanied Ms. Rinnhofer to her opening at the New Britain Museum of American Art in New Britain, CT on Sunday. Angelika thrilled the attendees with an impromptu demonstration of how she formulates her portraits with the assistance of volunteer model, Claire Oliver.
Angelika will be giving a gallery talk on June 12 at 6pm during the museum's monthly Art Happy Hour.
Prior to the opening we enjoyed a lovely brunch at the home of NBMAA director Douglas Hyland where we met Lisa Hoke who was taking a respite from her work on her installation in the museum's stairway/project space. Lisa's piece, The Gravity of Color is opening tonight with a reception from 5:30 to 8pm.
Above: some of the thousands of paper and plastic cups that make up Lisa's piece. Below: a view of the work in progress through the scaffolding.
