Cinematheque: "Ulee's Gold"
December 27, 2017

The December theme for Cinematheque, Marathon Public Library's free weekly film series, is "Tests of Character." Movie buffs who love to put on their thinking caps will be into this lineup; all protagonists this month will be wrestling with a moral quandary. On Wednesday, December 27, at 6 p.m., is "Ulee's Gold," released in 1997. Peter Fonda stars as a reserved Florida beekeeper who must try to put his dysfunctional family back together and face down his son's criminal ex-cohorts. We'll be showing the film on the large screen in our community room. As popcorn!

Call to Artist: Shady Palm Art Gallery
November 22, 2017 - January 20, 2018

Join Us for the Arts Council's annual Connections Project. Our Mosaic of the Keys provides 400 free 6 x 6 inch blank canvases for Monroe County artists and community members to create their own unique piece of art. We then collect, assemble and exhibit the 400 canvases as one large mosaic. We will travel to six Keys' locations and celebrate at each venue with an opening reception. While it is traveling through out the keys people may purchase a canvas for $50.00 and in May, when we disassemble the mosaic each canvas is shipped to our eagerly awaiting collectors. The proceeds from the Connections Project benefit Keys artists and arts organizations through arts council grants. Please contact Lori Gaukel at Shady Palm Art Gallery to participate in the Keys Mosaic Connection Project. We are looking for people who would like to create a piece of art on a 6 x 6 canvas that will become part of this large Mosaic that travels through out the keys. It's free to participate, fun and gives back to our Keys Artist.
