Join us at Blueline, Friday, August 4th, 5-8PM for the opening of our memorial show of works by artist Annemarie Mahler-Ettinger.
In honor of her life and work, her art show will be up all month in conjunction with a showing of a short film about her life: Whatever Comes Next” at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater on August 27th at 2pm.
This film had a showing at the Middle Coast Film Festival last year.
Annemarie (Ettinger) Mahler was born in Vienna, Austria in April of 1926 and recently passed away.
She fled by herself as a twelve-year old to the United States. She grew up in Manhattan, went to college at Berkeley in California, and later became an American artist and scholar.
She lived in Bloomington, Indiana since 1955, but spent time in a Dutch orphanage, New York City, Berkeley in California, Dallas, and Madison, Wisconsin along the way. She paints and writes autobiographical texts.
In the film “Whatever Comes Next”, the film portrays the 89-year old painter and scholar. How does she interact with the physical world through art? What do the artistic process and life have in common? Does time only move in one direction? What happens when recollections of a past time resurface and flood the memory?
