This film series will examine the Western from its classical form to its contemporary style. The Western began with films that starred John Wayne as the cowboy with the law on his side. This is the classic Western that many of us grew up with. Settlement was good. Indians were bad. There were clear lines between right and wrong. In the 1970’s films changed and so did interpretations of the Western genre. Filmmakers like Sam Peckinpah and Robert Altman made films that re-interpreted the Western. They told stories about exploitation by corporations and about different themes such as greed and treachery. In contemporary times Westerns have used various viewpoints to tell different stories that are not in the classic vein. Filmmakers like Clint Eastwood have raised questions about who was on the side of the righteous; the Law or the Outlaw? Westerns have evolved to tell stories from different points of view. Furthermore, Westerns still deal with myth and reality. Many films are based on myths and arguments about what really happened.









September 10: The Searchers (1956)

Directed by John Ford



The Classic Western about an Indian Villain and a former Civil War soldier hot on his trail to take back his kidnapped niece. The journey is a long one that takes John Wayne all across the West.



October 8: The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962)

Directed by John Ford



James Stewart stars as a new lawyer trying to find a means to live. He becomes embroiled in a fight with the local gang who has been harassing settlers. In a final confrontation Stewart kills the lead bandit. Or does he? The film has a Rashomon quality of what really did happen that fateful night.



November 12: McCabe and Mrs. Miller (1971)

Directed by Robert Altman



A realist take on life in the West. Warren Beauty stars as a gambler who meets Julie Christie. They go into business together. Business is great until a big corporation comes along. A final dual ensues.



December 10: The Wild Bunch (1969)

Directed by Sam Peckinpah



A story about bandits looking for one last big score; they find themselves in Mexico in conflict with a War Lord. All the while the American Law is in pursuit. William Holden stars in one of his last film roles. The story leads up to the one of the best endings of a Western in Film History.



January 14: Unforgiven (1992)

Directed by Clint Eastwood



In the last Western Clint Eastwood has made. A gunslinger comes out of retirement in an attempt to collect a reward. The mission is to kill two cowboys who cut up a young prostitute. Along the way a cast of characters reflects on the fading Western frontier and the legends it has created. Winner of four Academy Awards.



February 11: The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (2007) Directed by Andrew Dominik



Jesse James is the stuff of legend. This story is about how a young man who is infatuated with his legend grows to resent him. The film stars Brad Pitt with Casey Afleck as the antagonist who suffers greatly for his dastardly deed.

Reaching Into Darkness

The Bundy Museum Presents

 

Reaching Into Darkness: An Exploration of Dark Thoughts

 

Art by Jerry Macdonell

 

 

Opening Reception October 4 2019 6:00PM – 9:00PM

Located in the Bundy Museum’s 3rd Floor Art Gallery

Exhibition on Display from 10.4 – 10.29

Admission to Art Gallery is Always Free Tuesday - Saturday 11-5PM

 

Live Music by Phil McGovern (6pm-8pm) and Mike Burrell (7pm-9pm) with 1 hour musician crossover jam from 7- 8pm



From the Artist:

“Reaching Into Darkness” toes the line of disturbing imagery, dipping into strange dreams, shadows in the night and untold dark thoughts. I say “toe the line” because I think that each of us have restrained dark places that we bury. Either morbid curiosities or thoughts that sometimes creep us out and make us wonder how we could ever come up with them. Fleeting thoughts that come and go over time; from picturing the possibilities of horrible accidents, war, famine or disease to dark moments that depression can bring to the rationalization that angry moments, when uncontrolled, can end very badly. It’s always healthier to let them out in a safe manner for discussion and consideration than it is to bury them and pretend they don’t exist at all.



Jerry Macdonell - Bio

Business of Art Workshop: Student Series, Chalk Art

Eric Maruscak is an internationally known artist who has appeared across the country making live chalk murals in front of tens of thousands at giant events like the San Diego Comic Con, the New York Comic Con, the International Toy Fair, and for companies like Lucasfilm and Nintendo. Join Eric for an afternoon of fun as he teaches the basics behind working with chalk pastels, drawing giant-sized imagery, and dealing with outdoor conditions. Be prepared to get a little chalky as Eric shows you some of his materials, and you’ll work with chalk pastels on your own pavement art. The class starts with a brief demonstration by Eric, but quickly he will have you coloring and sketching on your own work. You’ll be amazed how fast two hours can fly by. Either have an image you already want to create (don’t make it too complex) or we can sketch on the fly to create an outline you can color.

Business of Art Workshops: Student Series are free for BCAC Student & Family Members and $15 for the general public.

Pre-registration is required! Please email awarfield@broomearts.org or call 607.723.4620 to reserve your place today!

Artist Statement:
Cornelius Nixon (my mom calls me Neal) from New London Connecticut finding my way into the world; Working my way forward to this exhibit. I understand that sometimes it may not be the answers that you are looking for. Sometimes it's the question. So when we are looking at it we can ask ourselves how I feel about what I'm seeing once we transcend into the open-mindedness of its friction. Its origin almost becomes insignificant, next to the thoughts and places that it can take you because we can now be capable of listening to it in the silence of color.

Chrysalis: A live themed competitive story telling event series

march.jpg

CHRYSALIS, a live themed competitive storytelling event series, continues into its second season at the Bundy Museum of History and Art.

Our theme this year celebrates the 60th anniversary of The Twilight Zone - the theme is: "Where is Everybody".

Each month people of all ages are invited to the Bundy Museum of History and Art’s Annex Theatre to tell true, 5 minute stories in front of a live audience. During the evening 10 randomly selected storytellers tell their stories. At the end a winner is announced.

The criteria is simple: all stories must be true, no notes, no props, and no rants! Just real people telling real stories.

Each event has a theme. Themes are meant as a loose suggestion for the narratives and provide a creative challenge, not as strict determinations of plot or structure. The current Chrysalis series take its themes from classic movies. We are looking forward to seeing you there. Remember, your stories don't have to have anything to do with the episodes themselves. The themes are a jumping off point. Hope to see you soon!

Chrysalis, a live themed competitive storytelling event, takes place in the in the Bundy Museum Annex Theatre (behind 129 Main Street in Binghamton, NY). Doors open at 7pm (storytellers should come early).

Admission is $5 and listeners and storytellers are welcome!

For more information email Alice a chrysalis@bundymuseum.org.
