About the Artist                                  

David Rohn is a watercolor and oil painter.  He currently lives and creates art in the woods of Southern Vermont.

“Rohn’s paintings seem part  of  another diction altogether, one free of jargon and its thin gratifications; free, also, of art-schooled ambition to please teacher/critic/dealer, but rarely the eye of the beholder. The eye of this beholder is soothed and delighted, reminded of the old sense of magic which manifests itself in art. I llike to call it magic, or alchemy, since these words convey transformation: the way all true art, representational or abstract, changes the visual world into a vision of the world.”   Ann Lauterbach,   from  “Light Repositories: On David Rohn’s Watercolors”

“…..each picture having a highly artculate – but seldom outspoken – air.  Yet when Rohn gets right down to it, his very delicacy of means yields up something deeply felt and expressed.     …. Rohn finds feeling; he is a still-life painter of surprising force.”   Gerrit Henry, Art In America

[framed] films will be screened at Next Stage on six Thursdays, beginning March 30th, 2017, at 7:30  PM. Each screening will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker. The filmmakers will also be working with area students as part of Next Stage Arts’ ongoing collaborations with schools. A second group of films will be screened in the fall.

Curator Nancy Schafer worked for the iconic Tribeca Film Festival for 11 years, where she was most recently the festival’s executive director. Schafer and Next Stage co-founder Billy Straus met at the Camden International Film Festival in 2015 where Schafer serves on the advisory board, and the idea of programming a documentary series for Next Stage was born.

The films in the [framed] series have recently played on the festival circuit around the world including Sundance and Tribeca, and all have been recognized with festival honors. The eclectic lineup explores a wide range of issues including gender, incarceration, beauty, otherness, greed, and the role of family and tradition.

[framed] will run for 6 consecutive Thursdays at Next Stage, beginning March 30th. A series pass for the six films is $50. Individual event tickets are $10 in advance or $12 at the door.
