LE RÉVÉLATEUR Poster by Ross Cashiola

17 Dec 2013

Poster by Ross Cashiola

Just got in the Le Révélateur posters, hand-drawn by the multi-talented Ross Cashiola. This is our fifth (!) annual New Year’s film program, and we’re screening Philippe Garrel’s Le Révélateur (1968) with a live score by harpist Mary Lattimore and synth player Jeff Zeigler. That’s December 30 at 7 pm — more details here.

Also for your calendars: we’ll have a New Year’s Eve Open House at the gallery on December 31 from 4-6pm. Stop by for refreshments and a two-for-one poster sale (may I recommend the Le Révélateur poster, with perhaps this, this, this, this, this, or this?)

¡Feliz navidad y próspero año nuevo!

THURSDAY

Local musician Ross Cashiola brings his monthly WAR & CINEMA open mic to Padre’s. As he tells the Big Bend Sentinel, “I want this to be an easy platform for people to try out new songs and new things.” New things including but not limited to poetry, plays and “even stand-up comedy.”

There’s an opening reception for Chinati artist in residence MATT ROBERTS at the Ice Plant from 6-8pm — an excellent opportunity to pre-game War & Cinema while experiencing the artist’s “loose narrative that reawakens the sense of wonder for what is nearest.” Roberts “works primarily in sculpture, employing extra-sculptural gestures such as walking and mapping to form the dense web of his understanding of place.” Listen to a walk-through preview of the show on Marfa Public Radio.

jesse sugarmann / Recent Work About The Big Three

FRIDAY

The evening starts at 6p at Michael Strogoff, a new addition to the Marfa landscape from Ballroom’s Associate Curator Erin Kimmel and Nicolas Miller. JESSE SUGARMANN‘s Recent Work About The Big Three is part of a body of work that flows from the artist’s interest in “the way that car accidents function as instant monuments to traumatic events.”

And then it’s off to the aforementioned Psychic Ills meltdown happening at Padre’s at 9pm.
