Parrsboro Creative Invitation to Film Premiere

Parrsboro Creative Film Invitation MAL June 3 2016-page-001

“Searching For Realism” tells the story of eight established Nova Scotia painters – Tom Forrestall, Paul Hannon, Ed Huner, Joy Laking, Gordon MacDonald, Shelley Mitchell, Susan Paterson, and Steven Rhude – who organized a search throughout the province to find those artists  who are currently producing the best and most original work in a representational painting style.
In the beginning, 121 entries were received; 59 artists were visited in their studios; and in the end, there was an exhibition of 26 artists at University of Dalhousie, one of the most successful showing in their history.
“Searching For Realism” captures this process on film, and it is a fascinating journey.
