BLUE HILL, Maine — Fans of filmmaker Richard Kane will have an opportunity Thursday to watch two of his completed films, and a preview of a third on the way, in one evening in the Howard Room of the Blue Hill Public Library.
The evening of arts and environmental films begins at 7 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
Kane, who lives in Sedgwick, will be on hand to present “Rock Solid: The Schoodic International Sculpture Symposium,” which has a running time of 32 minutes, and the 29-minute “Protecting the Nature of Maine.”
Sculptor and Schoodic International Sculpture Symposium founder Jesse Salisbury, artist Robert Shetterly of the Union of Maine Visual Artists and writer-film producer Veronica Young, who wrote “Protecting the Nature of Maine,” will also be on hand for question-and-answer sessions.
Kane and Shetterly will also present a five-minute preview of “Carlo Pittore: Maine Master,” another film in the “Maine Master” series. Pittore was an internationally known mail artist who lived and worked in Bowdoinham and founded the Union of Maine Visual Artists in 1975. The recipient of two honorary degrees from the Maine College of Art in Portland, Pittore died in 2005.
The two completed movies feature the music of Grammy award-winning pianist and composer Paul Sullivan, who is also based in Sedgwick.
The showings are co-sponsored by the Natural Resources Council of Maine, the Schoodic International Sculpture Symposium and the Union of Maine Visual Artists.
