The Wrightwood Arts Center will host a premiere screening of its new documentary short film, “Conversions: Art, Nature & Community,” on Sunday, October 16th at 6:30 pm at the Wrightwood Place. A year in the making, “Conversions: Art, Nature & Community” is a 20-minute original film that will focus on the convergence of the arts, nature, and living.
The film is centered around asking and answering questions about the creative process, including What inspires you? How do you do that? Why is art important to you and the community? Artist interviews include John Frame, Patricia Farrell, David Kazumi & Shion Svenson, Reyna Rivera, Gayle Dowling, Mary Duman, Jamie Crooke-Powell, Melissa Chadburn, Collette Budd, Greg Jones, and many others! The film is presented by the Wrightwood Arts Center, and the creative team includes writer and director Scott Mahoy of Haven Creative, who has over 20 years of experience in the art of film making, and local videographer Zachariah Budd of Cultivation Studios, which is a Wrightwood based photography studio. Local artist musicians also submitted music for the short film.
See your friends and neighbors on film and hear what they say about the value of art in our lives and community. Light refreshments will be served at the screening. The suggested donation is $10.00, and all ages are welcome. Visit wrightwoodarts.com for more information.
