When: November 17 @7PM
Where: Plaza Theatre
What: Film screening followed by a Q&A session with the directors.
: Flexie! All the Same and All Different investigates Levine Flexhaug’s paintings by focusing on the role and significance they have for those who collect them contrasted with how his contemporaries in rural western Canada have understood and valued them. What emerges is not the typical biographical documentary, but a revealing exchange of ideas about the popularity and meaning of landscape painting and the position of Flexhaug’s work within the world of art, as well as a portrait of the disappearing milieu in which he painted. In the course of making the film, the filmmakers traveled widely in western Canada and elsewhere to conduct interviews with family members, acquaintances, collectors, art historians, and critics and visit sites and locations where Flexhaug painted and sold his work.
