Special Screening of John Cohen's Film Mary Frank

When: Sun., Aug. 31, 2:30 p.m. 2014

Presented by the Woodstock Film Festival, VISIONS OF MARY FRANK will be followed by a q&a with Mary Frank and director John Cohen. Reception at Elena Zang Gallery to follow. Tickets $20.

Mary Frank’s work is like no other. Frank is an explorer of dreams and improvised drawings, a maker of triptychs, paintings, prints, photographs, and bodies permeated with mystery. Most significant are her magnificent ceramic sculptures of female figures emerging from and returning to the earth, tormented, evoking mythic gods and human exigency. The film also portrays her activism – anti-war protests, advocacy for solar cookers in Africa, and feminism. This new film is about her own unique vision, which she has developed in her studio over 60 years.
