Avon Theatre Religious Hope from the Movies: BECKET (1964)

06/06/2017

272 Bedford St, Stamford, CT Phone: 203-967-3660.

7:30 pm. The magnificent 1964 movie BECKET was nominated for 11 Oscars including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor (2 of them!) and Best Supporting Actor, while winning the Best Screenplay award. It tells the dramatic story of two 12th century English leaders, King Henry II (Peter O'Toole) and Thomas Becket (Richard Burton). It depicts a challenging time in history. The Normans conquered England in the 11th century and then oppressed the Saxon people and destroyed their leadership as much as possible. King Henry uses his lower-class Saxon friend Becket to be the Chancellor of England, and then in a supposed stroke of genius (in his mind) makes him Archbishop of Canterbury. But...Thomas has a change of heart, serves God and England's people courageously, and is eventually killed for it. The themes found in BECKET are so very pertinent to our lives and time. What does it mean to have loyalty and faith? What values command our highest loyalty? What should people of faith to do when government is oppressive and leadership erratic? How do we perceive genuine call, responsibility, and conviction in our lives, even if that means radically changing direction? Yes, the story takes place in the 12th century, but the issues are those of this very day.

The Glass House Julian Schnabel

06/08/2017 to 07/10/2017

199 Elm Street, New Canaan, CT Phone: 203.594.9884 .

The Glass House proudly presents Julian Schnabel: "Paintings that I hope Philip and David would like," an intimate survey showcasing Julian Schnabel's prolific painting career. Over the course of the exhibition period, the Painting Gallery panels will rotate three times to present paintings selected by the artist. Each rotation will feature six works from different periods of the artist's career. The second rotation, Paintings after 2000, on view from June 8th to July 10th, feature works from the artist's collection from different series: Nothing Paintings, Weather Paintings and Landscape Paintings. The Nothing Paintings were made on images printed on polyester. The Landscape Paintings were made on found materials bought in Mexico. Reminiscent of aerial photography, the Weather Paintings are mysterious images photographically printed as an aerial view of the land, creating a disorienting sense of sight so that the viewer feels suspended above rather than being on the ground.
