Friday, January 27, 6-8pm: Artist's Talk, Book Signing and Opening Reception


Captured directly on the shoreline, Joni Sternbach's luminous images possess the immediate quality of a singular print created then-and-there as she captures portraits of contemporary surfers in tintype, a 19th-century technique first used during the American Civil War and little changed since then. The large camera seems to slow down time, so that her subjects possess a distilled and timeless grace and beauty that seems so far removed from the energy, movement and animation we commonly associate with the surfing life.

FLUIDRIVE: Modern Daggeurotypes

January 27 - April 22, 2012



March 30, 6-8pm: Artist's Talk and Reception



"The series of work, entitled 'Fluidrive' is focused on the use of ritual. I am interested in a lyric image that can be revisited by the viewer in the way one re-visits the feelings created in a song or prose. The daguerreotype is kind of a reliquary that you can hold in your hands and use like a prayer box. The fact that these "mirrors" last forever and have the ability to render subjects almost as a hologram puts us in a discussion with our own memories." -Curtis Wehrfritz

7:00 pm 

This is a feature-length documentary about arguably the greatest and certainly the most charismatic racing driver of all time, Brazilian Ayrton Senna. The real story has been told, definitively, thrillingly and with real emotion. The film lets the singular personality of Senna; and the spectacular theatrics of Formula 1 racing, tell his story without any forced drama or fanfare.

Les Bonnes Femmes (The Good Time Girls)

One of Chabrol's best films and a masterpiece of the French New Wave. There's a breezy naturalism that invigorates the film: easy, seemingly spontaneous ensemble performances, the immediacy of shooting on
location, and a loose, episodic story full of rich detail. But this is no urban fairy tale: the dreams of these girls are frustrated by a tawdry and brutal world in a shocking, sad finale.

1:30 pm
Helena From the Wedding 

One dark night in the life of Alex Javal, a man who is so distracted looking back that he doesn't see what is right in front of him. The film captures the feeling between the fading of youth and the beginning of the rest of life, and a look back before we move forward into the future.
