Exhibition: Vermeer and Music / Cinemark / Champps

I have always admired the work of the Dutch painter, Johannes Vermeer. To my surprise and delight, I learned of this one-night showing of his art in relation to music, captured and presented especially for the big screen. 

Because the film will be ending at 9:10, I suggest that we meet beforehand for dinner and then proceed to the theater, which is right behind the restaurant. We can share our impressions as well as knowledge any of us may have about this great artist.  

Please let me know if you wish to meet with us for dinner by answering the question that pops up when you rsvp or by commenting below. --as a courtesy to the restaurant!            

6:00 P.M. DINNER at Champps                                            

5989 Canal Street, Valley View, OH 44125                    

Ask to be seated on the "Porch" with Lynda and the Movie Group.                                    We will have a quieter, more secluded space. 


7:30 P.M. MOVIE Cinemark at Valley View                                                                        If you didn't join us for dinner beforehand, watch for us walking to the theater from Champps shortly before the movie - around 7:15-7:20.

POST-FILM DISCUSSION We can decide on a place following the film.

The National Gallery, London, is offering a major exhibition on one of the most startling and fascinating artists of all-time, Johannes Vermeer. Vermeer is most popularly known as the painter of the Girl with a Pearl Earring. Vermeer painted little more than 30 works that still exist, and the National Gallery has chosen to focus on his art in relation to music. The event goes beyond the exhibition to tell the entire story of Vermeer's life and, in doing so, shows in detail many other of the artist's great works. The program will suit the wide audience who adore Vermeer's work and who want both to see it in detail and to learn more about this mysterious, fascinating man.  
100 minutes.

    It was fascinating to study Vermeer's paintings (and others) so thoroughly... from the comfort of "stadium seating." I now have a deeper understanding and admiration of this fine artist.
