MONET: THE MAGIC OF WATER & LIGHT – Reel Art 2019
Jan 21 @ 7:00 pm

A documentary on the massive work of Monet and the story that led him to revolutionize Modern Art.

Monet – the Magic of Water and Light tells the story of the origin of a massive work of art that broke with convention, of an artist resurrecting his life only thanks to painting.His human endeavor defied both space and conventions in his timeless masterpieces.In a war-torn country, the undisputed genius of French Art disrupted the art world and changes it forever. As the end of the First World War drew near it became clear to Monet that his work of art could not but be his final legacy to France: a symbol of peace, hope, and resistance, in a battered and bloody world.This is the tale of an obsession with light and water the painter could not escape from and how he transformed it into a kind of magic. A tale of the radical elements that revolutionized Modern Art: Monet’s clear intent was to transfer onto canvas the “first, pure impression” of forms and objects as they appear to the eye that has never seen them before. And this documentary will show the Water Lilies by Claude Monet, as they have never been seen before. A unique, exclusive look at the masterpieces housed at the Orangerie Museum, the Marmottan Museum, the Orsay Museum and Giverny, for the first time ever on the big screen for an unrepeatable experience.Inspired by the international bestseller Mad Enchantment: Claude Monet and the Painting of the Water Lilies (2016) written byRoss King, also featured in the film.

ROBBIE BURNS NIGHT SCOTCH N HAGGIS 2019
Jan 25 @ 6:00 pm
Tickets are limited so be sure to get yours in advance!!
ou can expect bagpipes, expert scotch-tasting, themed delicacies, odes with a twist, and much more.
Bagpipes with Kim Gunn & David Kirk.
Founder’s House Head Chef Chris Pyne will offer:
  • Cheese and Charcuterie Board: House-made meats, pickles, crackers, and croustini with some great local cheeses.
  • House-made Haggis: Mashed potatoes, turnip (Neeps & Tatties), carrots with a whisky onion gravy.
  • Bread Pudding with toffee sauce.
Whisky Sommelier Leslee Fredricks of the NSLC will lead a sampling of some of the finest scotches you’ll find. She offers a short blurb on two of the single malts we will be tasting:
  • Tamdhu 10 YO – This is a Speyside Malt that possesses more colour than you would expect from a 10 year old single malt. (The age statement reflects the youngest whiskey in the bottle, so there may be some older whisky in the blend). The malt was aged 10 years exclusively in Sherry casks, so expect some significant fruit and woodiness. The nose is complex and the palate is wonderfully sweet and smooth.
  • Craigellachie 13 YO – Another Speyside Malt, Craigellachie is considered a traditionally made Single Malt using traditional equipment, producing a whisky that is a bit of a departure from a typical Speyside Malt. Craigellachie is viscous and complex with explosive fruit and a hint of smoke. Very few single malt expressions have been released by this distillery, so get ready for a real treat.

The event will take place at the NEW EVENT SPACE at Fort View Golf Course. Tickets are available through King’s Theatre.

TICKETS are $60 each (or $30 without the scotch-tasting)

This is a fundraiser for King’s Theatre.

DEGAS: PASSION FOR PERFECTION – Reel Art 2019
Feb 4 @ 7:00 pm
From The Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge EXHIBITION ON SCREEN journeys from a superb exhibition at The Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, whose extensive collection of Degas’ works is the most representative in Britain, to the streets of Paris. With exclusive access to view rare and diverse works, this film tells the fascinating story of Degas’ pursuit for perfection through both experimentation with new techniques and lessons learnt from studying the past masters. Sometimes frustrated by his own failings, Degas was consumed by obsessive principles and failing eye sight but his determination to capture everyday life was evident in every mark he made. Never fully satisfied, many of Degas’ drawings and sculptures were kept in private during his lifetime but, now through close examination, they can be seen as some of the most beautifully detailed and expressive works in the modern era. Using written accounts by friends and commentators, and the narration of letters written by Degas himself, this film reveals a more complex truth behind one of the most influential French artists of the late 19th-century and serves as an exploration of the complex workings of Degas’ artistic mind. “Art is not a matter of what you see, but what you make other people see.” Edgar Degas
