Thursday/Friday 11-3, Saturday/Sunday 12-3. The Stamford Art Association will present "CORNER STORE", a solo painting exhibit by Tara Blackwell at its Townhouse Gallery. Tara grew up in a household filled with artists-both her parents and her older brother-in a home teeming with differing artistic styles and modalities. The early deaths of her brother and father left her, a young painter, struggling to find her voice without her beloved teachers. In retrospect, processing these tragedies is what Tara, now a mature artist with a unique, exciting style, believes most accounts for the complexity and depth of her current work in which she employs bold colors, layers, and texture.

Avon Theatre A Cult Classics screening of THE ROOM.

11/14/2017

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

8:30 pm. THE ROOM, which has a well-developed cult following, has often been referred to one of the worst films ever made! Johnny (Tommy Wiseau), a successful banker, lives happily in a San Francisco townhouse with his fiancée, Lisa. One day, inexplicably, she gets bored with him and decides to seduce his best friend, Mark (Greg Sestero). From there, nothing will be the same again. Although the film is mainly centered on the melodramatic love triangle, it has many unrelated subplots that remain unresolved. Greg Sestero's 2013 book The Disaster Artist, which tells the story of the making of the "greatest bad movie ever made", has been made into a 2017 film starring James Franco. Rated R | In English | 99 minutes
