If local animation fans haven't noticed, there has been a lot of great/rare animation being screened lately at the Mini Microcinema, a small experimental film theater on Main St. that opened in 2015.
Earlier this month, there were screenings of the 18th annual Animation Show of Shows, as well as a collection of films by Yellow Springs animator Kelly Gallagher.
And now, tonight night is a screening of "Latin American Experimental Animation", a curated mix of experimental animation from animators from Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and Peru.
These are also free (a donation would be awesome)! I just thought you should know.
Coming up in a few weeks on April 8th is "Shelter In Place", a human rights benefit art show at the Thunder-Sky, Inc. gallery.
"Shelter in Place,’ comprised of artists and crafters from across the region, is a fundraiser for a curated group of charitable organizations. Artists and crafters will be donating 100 percent of the sales of their works to a curated group of charitable organizations. Once an artist has agreed to participate they will have a vote as to which three charitable organizations receive the funds. The charities benefiting from ‘Shelter in Place’ are organization engaged in protecting and expanding human rights such as ACLU, Lamda Legal, and Southern Poverty Law Center. Customers purchasing the art and crafts will be able to designate which of the 3 charities the money will be directed."
Here is my contribution. Hope to see you there at what should be a remarkable show for a fantastic cause.
As an extended branch of the "animation workshop" class that I am currently teaching, I am introducing the Floating Shape Workshop (FSW). The FSW will be a mobile, portable version of the workshop. My hope is to introduce a short (one week to one month, varying) course at venues such as summer camps, libraries and educational events. Further details can be read in the FSW tab now at the top of this website.
I am very much looking forward to this. The first course is currently in the process of being booked for this summer and I can't wait to see the results. Until then, I will be compiling blank flipbooks and getting the clay and armature wire ready ...
