Probably the best reviewed film of the year, filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Richard Linklater's Boyhood is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes.
 
Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason's parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, Boyhood charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before and is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting.

In the Art Bar - Shannon Good

Past, Present, Future
Shannon Good, Maker
 
This show represents a sampling of my work over the past three decades. Through the years, I’ve been interested in making things both functional and decorative. I began painting again in the early 1990’s after many years of working in textiles. In the late 90’s my focus was divided between painting in oils and working in fiber. I created handmade felt for several years, designing and selling several hundred felt hats under the label, “Imago”. Life changed for me in 1999 and in the first decade of the new century I concentrated my energies towards building my architectural design business into a more viable means of support. Although I didn’t have a lot of time for it, artwork was a refuge for me, a way to go within and be quiet and focused.
