ART FILM FRIDAY: "Painting Bolinas"

“Painting Bolinas” takes you on an unforgettable journey into the life of a man true to his art to the very end, Peter Lee Brownlee, with the bravado of a Hemingway and the sensibility of a Picasso.

O’Hanlon Center for the Arts is kicking off their Art Film Fridays with local filmmaker Wendy Elkin’s documentary about  the late Bolinas artist Peter Lee Brownlee.  Wendy will be be available for a Q and A after the screening.

This is the first of our “Art Film Fridays”, and it’s only $5! Gather in the Center Gallery with your art community and celebrate an artful life.  Popcorn and drinks by donation.

The film Painting Bolinas is a documentary about a 90 year old artist, whose lifestyle mirrors a king in a court of chaos and imagination. Peter is known as the “cake decorator” because of his massive layering technique. Creating rich textures, his paintings are of urban and rural downtowns and famous landmarks all across America.


Tickets are $5 or more by donation.
