vast-frank-reaugh

You are invited to a presentation by Marla Fields at the Visual Arts Society of Texas (VAST) January monthly meeting on January 5th, 2017, from 7 – 9 p.m. at the Patterson-Appleton Arts Center, 400 East Hickory St, Denton.

Marla will present film highlights that feature artist and poet Frank Reaugh (1860-1945), a key figure in the region’s development of visual art and art education during the 19th Century.

Marla Fields has been a freelance video producer and writer since 1994. Ms. Fields is responsible for and assisted in the creative, preproduction, production, and post-production of various training, promotional, and educational projects, both local and nationwide.

With over 20 years of experience in overseeing numerous productions from script-to-screen in the corporate arena, “Frank Reaugh: Pastel Poet of the Texas Plains” is her first full-length documentary.

She began her Reaugh journey in 2010 by establishing non-profit status for her production and raising funds though small grants and private donations. Since then, she has traveled the state thoroughly researching the artist and his students, recording key interviews, and capturing hundreds of images including the landscapes, landmarks and, of course, the longhorns that Mr. Reaugh sketched and treasured.

With the documentary complete, she is currently creating community events with organizations and institutions that share the common goal of bringing more awareness to this Texas treasure.

Marla is a native Texan, born in Lake Jackson, and resides in Frisco,Texas, just north of Dallas.

ASSOCIATION OF GRAND PRAIRIE ARTISTS (AGPA)

The meeting will begin at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, October 27th at the Uptown Theater in downtown Grand Prairie.

The Program will be a screening of a short documentary produced from still and movie film taken during the course of the NEA Our Town Art Project sponsored by the city of Grand Prairie in 2014.   The project included the production of five art and photography workshops that were put on for the benefit of a selected group of past offenders as part of a rehabilitation project.  The last piece of that part of the project was a reception and showing of the framed and matted pictures that the past offenders produced from their own photographs.   These workshops and the show were organized and conducted by the Association of Grand Prairie Artists with assistance from the Dallas Camera Club.   Much of this activity as well as the subsequent production of a tile mosaic on I-30 were filmed and photographed by a documentary film company.   The result is this film called Grand Prairie City HeARTS.

The Uptown Theater is located at 120 East Main Street in Grand Prairie.    A copy of the invitation for the screening is attached.
