World Premiere: VISIONS OF HOME: THE WORK OF HEATHER NEILL
Directors David Fokos, Barbarella Fokos, and Artist Heather Neill will attend.
Free admission (Limit to 2 tickets per a person)
There is beauty to be found in the pattern on a porcelain teacup, or the “patina of a working boat at rest.” In her nostalgic, lifelike, and sometimes whimsical paintings, artist Heather Neill pays homage to the ordinary — items that are likely overlooked before Neill captures their essence in luxuriant color and exquisite detail. Follow Neill as she finds inspiration for her latest painting, all the while expounding on her muses, which include her wife, Pat, and a handful of dear friends who are bastions of New England Yankee-ism. From the expansive blue of the Martha’s Vineyard coastline to the verdant green of her garden in rural Pennsylvania, see the world through this artist’s eyes, and get a peek into her process, as she explores what it really means to be “home.”
Following the film will be a Q&A with Heather Neill, filmmakers David and Barbarella Fokos and The Artist Odyssey founder Chris Fessenden.
