The Moviehouse launching virtual 'Art Talks' series
MILLERTON, N.Y. — The Moviehouse is launching a series of virtual "Art Talks" later this month, hosted by Tony Carretta, consultant curator for The Moviehouse Studio Gallery.
The series will focus on artists featured in four documentary films that are available for viewing through The Moviehouse's Virtual Cinema, which can be accessed through The Moviehouse website — themoviehouse.net.
The series begins 2 p.m. May 19 with Halina Dryshka, director of the documentary "Beyond the Visible: Hilma af Klint." Dryshka will join the Zoom event live from her home in Germany.
"The format will be relaxed and much the same as The Moviehouse's traditional Q&A's with an 'in conversation' followed by questions," Moviehouse president and program director Carol Sadlon said in a news release. "The talks will be free and open to all who wish to participate, although registration is required ... .
"While our theaters and art gallery are closed, we felt this was a perfect way to provide the enriching extra content our audiences had become accustomed to through our Q&A's [with filmmakers]."
Carretta is an independent curator, consultant, and studio artist whose work has been exhibited extensively throughout the United States. In 1996 he founded New Arts Gallery in Litchfield, Conn. He is the author of the book "Studio to Wall: The Commerce of Art."
