Jon Redmond | New Paintings

Somerville Manning Gallery

Fri

#INbudget ($0-$10), Visual Arts

With a studio in Philadelphia and a house in the Berkshires of Massachusetts, Jon Redmond’s current show offers a fresh view of his popular subject matters of choice, urban architecture and still lifes that juxtapose the natural and man-made.  Unusual angles and the absence of figures blur the difference between residential dwellings and commercial businesses, but pops of bright color pull the viewer’s attention through the windows to the vibrant energy that undoubtedly exists within.  He finds complex angles and shapes in his subject matter and showcases them in his paintings. These forms, whether created by dramatic shadows or fleeting rays of sunshine, come together to create the abstract compositions he enjoys most. He also recognizes the beauty and simplicity of light falling on the objects he chooses for his still lifes. Redmond ultimately seeks to capture his viewer’s interest by interpreting subjects through his distinctive, painterly style.

Museum Exhibitions, Visual Arts

Royal Splendor: The Coronation Gown from The Crown, the first in a new Winterthur exhibition series entitled Eye on the Iconic, will feature the replica coronation gown worn in episode five, “Smoke and Mirrors,” of the Netflix series The Crown, a dramatized history of the reign of Queen Elizabeth II. Like the richly symbolic centuries-old coronation ceremony, the coronation dress is iconic—one of the most celebrated dresses of the 20th century and a symbol of a historical moment witnessed by millions around the world. The replica dress is also a true icon, created in celebration of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.  
 
Join us this fall beginning October 20, 2017, to view this very special dress and experience the rich connections an object like this one makes between the Queen, her people, and the world through the celebration and memory of important historical moments. And look for future presentations in the Eye on the Iconic series, each highlighting a single remarkable object.

The Unknown Girl

INbudget
#INbudget ($0-$10), Film

Not Rated, 113 minutes. In French with English subtitles.

The new film from acclaimed directors the Dardenne brothers (Two Days, One Night) is a searing saga of guilt and redemption.

One evening after work hours, Jenny (Adèle Haenel), a young doctor, allows the door buzzer at the small clinic where she works to go unanswered. It’s only later that she learns that the person ringing was an unidentified African woman found dead shortly after by the side of a road.

Consumed by the thought that she is to blame, Jenny embarks on an obsessive crusade to discover who the anonymous woman was and to see to it that she is not forgotten. Shot through with low-key suspense and the heart-stopping realism that has become the directors’ trademark, The Unknown Girl is both a gripping mystery and a profoundly human moral tale.

India, 1947: Lord Mountbatten (Downton Abbey’s Hugh Bonneville) is dispatched, along with his wife Edwina (Gillian Anderson), to New Delhi to oversee the country’s transition from British rule to independence.

Taking his place in the resplendent mansion known as the Viceroy’s House, Mountbatten arrives hopeful for a peaceful transference of power. But ending centuries of colonial rule in a country divided by deep religious and cultural differences proves no easy undertaking, setting off a seismic struggle that threatens to tear India apart. With sumptuous period detail, director Gurinder Chadha (Bend It Like Beckham) brings to life a pivotal historical moment that re-shaped the world.
