FREE Art Film:  Johannes Vermeer:  Beyond Time

More than " The Girl with the Pearl Earring"

Tuesday, April 9, 2 pm in Cribari Conference Room with host Marion Rose


On Tuesday, April 9 at 2:00pm in the Cribari Conference Room, the Villages Arts and Crafts

Association will present "Vermeer: Beyond Time."

The film explores the life and work of one of the most loved, influential and well-known

artists, Johannes Vermeer. The documentary  adopts an imaginative and sensitive approach,

focusing not only on his work, but also his family life, his conversion to Catholicism, his

artistic contemporaries and the wider world of the Dutch Golden Age of the 17th century.

In 1675 Vermeer dies at the age of 43 overwhelmed by poverty.  Soon afterwards, his paintings are sold to cover his debts and Vermeer disappears from memory.

He is rediscovered some 200 years late, and we have seen his popularity soar claiming

our hearts and our admiration.

Come and enjoy!

An art related door prize will be awarded at the completion of the film.

Free admission for all Villagers and their guests.
