Art Exhibit in the Chur Gallery - Roycroft Master Artisan, Holly Bird

050818 Bird sm

Holly Bird is an award-winning printmaker, artist, and graphic designer residing in Palm Harbor, FL. She produces linoleum and woodcut block-prints and copper-plate etchings in her private home workshop, Studio Ibis. She finds pleasure in getting her hands inky and creating non-digital, archival works of art in multiples using centuries-old methods.

An avid, lifelong sailor, former Sea Scout leader and keel boat racer, Holly’s block prints reflect her love for traditional small craft sailing and Florida’s coastal waterways. In contrast, her drawings, etchings, and mezzotints are more personal and differ in tone. They reflect her deep love of line drawing and are more mythic and Faery Tale in nature. The exhibit will run from July 7th – September 7th, 2018. For further information, call 716-655-0261.

Singin in Rain5th Annual Outdoor Movie Under the Stars

Saturday, August 11th, 2018 - starting at 8:30 pm (rain date: Sunday, August 12th)

The Roycroft Film Society proudly presents its 5th annual movie under the stars.

Spend the evening with one of the greatest film musicals of all time "Singin in the Rain". When the transition is being made from silent films to `talkies’, everyone has trouble adapting. Don and Lina have been cast repeatedly as a romantic couple, but when their latest film is remade into a musical, only Don has the voice for the new singing part. After a lot of practice with a diction coach, Lina still sounds terrible, and Kathy, a bright young aspiring actress, is hired to record over her voice.

This event is FREE and open to the public. Guests should bring their own chairs, blankets, drinks and snacks. Bring the whole family to enjoy this wonderful musical comedy.

This event will be held in front of the Power House: 39 South Grove St., East Aurora, 14052
