Friday Night with Olexander Wlasenko

{Submitted by Ingrid Mueller}

Olex Wlasenko, Curator of Station Gallery in Whitby, presented our Feb 17 Friday night group with a very interesting topic:  Synchronicities: Art and Cinema. 

Olex gave examples of films that use art in their sets and film scenes that were inspired by specific artwork. He showed clips from specific movies and the corresponding art.

It was an insightful evening and has encouraged me to be more watchful of art in cinema.  It would be nice if they would use mine. Hahaha!
