The Jane Pickens Theater and Event Center has announced a special screening on Thursda, Jan. 28th at 1 p.m of Exhibition on Screen: David Hockney at Royal Academy of Arts. 

This is yet another exciting installment of the dozens of in-depth behind-the-scenes documentaries shown at The JPT known as “Exhibitions on Screen.” The focus of this next event is on major British artist David Hockney.  and will showcase two of Mr. Hockney’s much-lauded exhibitions, in 2012 and 2016, at London’s magnificent Royal Academy of Arts.

Director Phil Grabsky has outdone himself once more, securing intimate interviews with Hockney while crafting a visual story and tour for art lovers or anyone who appreciates cultural history. David Hockney is considered one of the most influential British artists of the 20th century.  A crucial contributor to the 60’s “pop art” movement, his versatility as an artist and photographer has been celebrated for many decades.  His work has been showcased in major museums the world over, in Paris, New York, London and D.C

So don’t miss out on the chance to experience the art and life of whom The Guardian newspaper has christened the “grand old man” of British painting.  Read this excerpt from a recent New York Times review of his recent retrospective at the MET:

“Throughout this delightful, absorbing exhibition, Mr. Hockney’s canvases are alive with the various ways of wrestling three dimensions into two, a proclivity that he thinks has been hard-wired into artists, from the caves to now and into the future. In his works, we zoom in for blades of grass, shag rugs, tweeds, drips of water, pointillist wallpaper, dots and dashes of red and blue, tapestry-like expanses of green-on-green. And we pull back for his gratifying architectures of form and space, amplified by color and portents of abstraction.”
