Maine Masters films to be shown in Blue Hill
Rob Shetterly, Richard Kane and Carl Little will present two Maine Master films—David Driskell: In Search of the Creative Truth and Joseph Fiore: The Nature of the Artist—at the Blue Hill Public Library Howard Room Wednesday, December 11, at 7 p.m. Clips from the Jon Imber film in development also will be shown. The screenings are free and open to the public, according to a news release.
The David Driskell documentary was screened at the National Gallery of Art, the New York Public Library Schomburg Center, the Portland Museum of Art and at eight international film festivals.
The Joseph Fiore documentary was released this fall, premiered at the Camden International Film Festival in September and has screened at the Asheville Cinema Festival and the Asheville Art Museum.
The Jon Imber documentary is a work-in-progress following the life and art of the Stonington and Somerville, Mass. artist. He currently has an exhibit showing at the Haystack Center for Community Programs in Deer Isle Village in which is displayed over 100 portraits of friends and family. The footage shows the extraordinary work that Imber is producing in spite of his handicap due to his debilitating ALS.
