Laguna Art Museum is screening Art and Spirit for their Film Night Thursday December 17 2015 at 7:00pm.
Laguna Art Museum is located at 307 Cliff Drive.

In Art and Spirit, filmmaker Dale Schierholt, best known for his intimate film portraits of renowned artists such as Robert Indiana and Tony DeLap, takes us inside the studios of one of his former subjects and dearest friends – the painter Harold Garde.

Schierholt spent time filming Garde at work, first at his winter studio in Florida and later at his studio in Maine.

While together they of course talked about Garde’s art – his processes, motivations and career.

Their conversations quickly fell into the familiar rhythms shared by old friends but Schierholt noticed something different in their dialogues.

Garde, now at 91, had transitioned into yet another stage of his long and celebrated career.

Accepting the finite amount of time he had remaining, Garde had embraced his time in the studio and focused his energies solely on making paintings, in fact some of the largest of his long career.

No longer concerning himself with the next gallery show or museum exhibit, Garde was creating art on its’ own terms.

In the editing room Schierholt realized that their conversations spoke to something larger than Garde and his art.

In Art & Spirit the thoughts shared by the 91 year old painter offer insight into a fulfilling and successful life.

This film is free with membership or paid admission to the Museum.
