Love is Strange
Friday, Oct 31, 7:30 pm

Monday, Nov 3, 7:30 pm

Ben (John Lithgow) and George (Alfred Molina) take advantage of New York's new marriage laws and tie the knot after being together for 39 years. Unfortunately, the Catholic school where George teaches does not approve, and they reluctantly fire him, forcing the couple to split up and stay with friends while they sell their apartment and look for cheaper housing. George crashes with two gay police officers, while Ben, who's a painter, bunks with his nephew's family in Brooklyn—a temporary situation that weighs heavily on all involved.
 
Director:  Ira Sachs

Starring: Alfred Molina, John Lithgow, Marisa Tomei , Charlie Tahan and Darren E. Burrows

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.
