About the Movie: Northwest filmmaker Jon Behrens hosts and curates this new film series once a month at Vermillion Gallery. A different film program and meal is held on the third Sunday of every month. Each of the film programs will have a menu item specifically designed to go with the film. So we would like to invite you to Vermillion to enjoy a free movie and a great meal and maybe have something to drink. All the films screened are shown on beautiful 16mm and are from Jon Behrens and friends' private collections of film prints.

Sunday, January 17th: JESSE JAMES MEETS FRANKENSTEIN'S DAUGHTER is a low-budget Western/horror hybrid film released in 1966, in which a fictionalized version of the real-life Western outlaw Jesse James encounters the fictional granddaughter (the movie's title notwithstanding) of the famous Dr. Frankenstein. John Lupton, who plays the part of Jesse James, is actually a bit too old for the role. When the film was made, Lupton was already 38 years old. The real-life Jesse James died before his 35th birthday.

Winter Lights: Explorations in Self-Illuminated Art

Winter Lights: Explorations in Self-Illuminated Art

Open Thursday, Jan 14, 2010 through Feb 7, 2010
Opening night party, 5 - 8pm, Jan 14th

Artists panel discussion on Wed, Jan 20th, 7:30 - 8:30pm.

As winter nights become long and dark, we rely on electricity to lighten our spirits. This show reflects the human fascination with manipulating light and electricity to shape sensory experience. Works from eight artists and art groups will both delight the senses through self-illumination, and intrigue the mind through their exploration of technology as a creative medium. You'll find projects ranging from small animated light sculptures, to large scale, interactive computer vision and laser displays.


Curated by Shelly Farnham, Eric McNeill, and friends of Dorkbot. Shelly Farnham and Eric McNeill have been on the Dorkbot-Seattle committee since 2005. Dorkbot-Seattle showcases innovative trends in contemporary art by bringing together artists and technologists who work with electricity in a significant way either in their art or in its creation.
