“Down on The Farm”, Paintings by Monique Cagle and a mini show of Nudes by Sven Frokjaer-Jensen

06:00 pm to 07:00 pm
The Venue

On Friday, June 29th, beginning at 6:00p.m.The Venue will host as our primary show, a closing reception for an Exhibition of Paintings by Monique Cagle.
Monique lives, works, and creates great art in Brown County, Indiana. In our judgement, Monique is the heir apparent to T.C. Steele et al, and carries forward the tradition of great Brown County landscapes and outdoor nature scenes. Monique lives on a Brown County farm, paints, makes fine jewelry, and creates all things cat art.
For this exhibition, Monique has produced acrylic, gallery wrapped paintings, focusing on domestic farm animals. These paintings have their own vitality and life, capturing the natural energy of the animals, which allows the viewer to see and sense them in a very special and profound way. As you view them close your eyes, and you will smell and hear them as well.
This has been our feature show for the month of June.
In addition, we will show a collection of small nudes in oil and charcoal, by the well known Danish artist, Sven Frokjear-Jensen. Forming an interesting contrast, these nudes are painterly, tasteful, and display Sven’s appreciation of the variety of the human body.

BCT Presents Dirty Dancing

07:00 pm
Buskirk-Chumley Theater
https://bctboxoffice.org/event/dirty-dancing/

In the summer of 1963, 17-year-old Frances “Baby” Houseman is vacationing with her family at Kellerman’s, a resort in the Catskill Mountains. After visiting a secret after-hours dance party in the staff quarters, Baby is drawn into the personal affairs of the staff members and has the time of her life with Johnny, the lead dance instructor.

Despite lukewarm reviews, Dirty Dancing was a popular sensation. The film drew adult audiences instead of the expected teens, and word-of-mouth promotion took the film to the number one position in the United States. It was one of the highest-grossing films of 1987, earning $170 million worldwide, and Dirty Dancing is credited for boosting attendance in dance classes across America.

Doors for this general admission event will open at 6:30pm. The event begins at 7pm with a mambo demonstration by Arthur Murray Dance Studio instructors and Cuban Salsa dance lesson and demo by Ritmos Latinos instructors.

This film is part of our DANCE MOVES & MOVIES summer series:
June 22 – Happy Feet
June 29 – Dirty Dancing
July 20 – Step Up
August 3 – Top Hat
