May 20th: Nothing Like Chocolate – Hosted by Dan Rosenberg
This is a documentary film about a close friend of mine, David “Mott” Friedman. He started a chocolate factory on the island of Grenada, in the Caribean. He became aware that the local cocoa growers were paid very little for their beans, which were exported and made into gourmet chocolate. He established a cooperative that paid the cocoa growers a fair price for their beans, and then began making the chocolate locally. The factory is owned and run by Grenadian locals. The chocolate has twice been awarded coveted Silver Medals at the top international chocolate festival. At Movie Night, everyone will have a chance to sample the company’s delicious chocolate!
(Requested donation: $5 to support the studio and for chocolate tasting – theMovie is Free!)
June 17th – Rivers and Tides: Andy Goldsworthy Working with Time – Hosted by Lisa Gatz
Andy Goldsworthy is a sculptor who works with nature’s environment to create magical, mostly temporal works with natural objects found around his chosen site for his work. The film is mesmerizing and gives one a sense of wonder at the hidden treasure found on the earth and in Goldsworthy’s imaginative mind.

July 15th – Finding Vivian Maier – Hosted by Angel Neville
Who is Vivian Maier? This is a documentary about the brilliant photographer Vivian Maier, whose genius went undiscovered for years as she worked as a nanny. How Maier lived in obscurity, and how thousands of her photographs were discovered in storage after her death is explored in this meditation on art, fame, and recognition. Now considered one of the 20th century’s greatest street photographers, Vivian Maier was a mysterious person who secretly took over 100,000 photographs that went unseen during her lifetime. Since buying her work by chance at auction, amateur historian John Maloof has crusaded to put this prolific photographer in the history books. Maier’s strange and riveting life and art are revealed through never-before-seen photographs, films, and interviews with dozens who thought they knew her.

Friends of the Studio,
What a year it has been for the Studio! We have seen the renovations continue, with the installation of the kitchen and other finishing work! This year there were many classes including yoga, belly dancing, african drumming, yarn spinning, tax preparation, the teen reading program, and so much more! There were so many fun events including concerts, jam sessions, game and movie nights, book readings, and work parties.
The Studio survives financially from fees earned from these classes and events but also relies on donations. The Studio still requires approximately $2,500 per year in donations to cover all of its bills.
Your donations are tax deductible, so why not make a donation now to the Studio?
