Images and Imaginings

Claudia Fouse Fountaine is an award winning local artist. Along with a BFA and an MFA, she has experience as a museum docent, and an art teacher. She's shown her work in galleries in San Francisco, New York, Brooklyn and New Hope, before becoming a member of Artists' Gallery in Lambertville. This will be her second two person show there. Whereas previously her colorful acrylic paintings depicted mostly bucolic scenes flowers and farms, in her new work Claudia seems to be exploring more personal subjects, and painting with a bit more of an expressionistic touch. 

Alan J. Klawans has enjoyed an accomplished career as a graphic designer and printmaker. He has always been interested in the structure of things. For example: buildings, ships, machinery, utility towers and industrial structures. In this exhibition he has observed the structure of flowers and plants. His previous work has been exhibited widely, including the Whitney Museum, New York, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and the Woodmere Art Museum, Philadelphia.

And don't forget - while we feature 2 artists each month, all 16 Artists' Gallery artists have work on display, and there is always a wide variety of artwork to enjoy.

From Doug Claybourne:

Friends, family and neighbors,

You are invited to attend a rare screening of my favorite film of the 30 or so I’ve produced or had the pleasure of being a part of making. This one is unique for me for many reasons. It was written by S.E. Hinton (at 16 years old)  in my home town of Tulsa, Oklahoma. A much more controversial city than I ever realized, until the last few years.

RUMBLE FISH shot in 1983 is a film about brothers, friendship and family and it was the first film I produced for Francis Coppola as a director, having spent 3 1/2 years making APOCALYPSE NOW, then THE BLACK STALLION and in the midst working on THE BLACK STALLION RETURNS in Morocco when I received the call from Francis to produce this picture. 

It really is everything I had dreamed filmmaking might be about. Art, beauty, experimentation, philosophy and working with friends - all the people I had been collaborating with over the past 5 or 6 years and beyond.

I will introduce the film and answer questions after - if nothing else. Come see what black and white film looked like as this may have been one of the last features shot in on B/W stock and it was certainly pre digital. All the effects were in the camera.

This film is all about the performances and I found out recently doing research for a film class I’ll be teaching in September, this it is Francis’s favorite picture as well. It is dedicated to his older brother August Coppola, father of Nicolas Coppola aka Nicolas Cage.

Happy Summer,

Doug Claybourne

Subject: Filmmaker Q&A: RUMBLE FISH Producer Doug Claybourne to visit the County Theater
Date: August 4, 2017 at 3:50:58 PM EDT

Q&A with Producer Doug Claybourne
Wednesday, August 23 at 7:30PM

We are thrilled to welcome back Doylestown resident and producer Doug Claybourne for a Q&A following a screening of his 1983 film RUMBLE FISH. 

After meeting Francis Ford Coppola in 1975, Claybourne volunteered to work on Apocalypse Now which began a 3 1/2 year adventure and odyssey until it’s completion and release in 1979. This was Doug’s first film where he started as a Production Assistant gaffing helicopters and ended up as the Assistant Director and the Post Production Coordinator and thereafter stayed on with Coppola as his assistant.

Rumble Fish was his first producing deal for a Coppola film and was shot in Doug’s home town of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Rumble Fish is Claybourne’s favorite project of the 30 some odd films he has produced in his career including Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse, Ware of the Roses, Fast and the Furious, Jack, The Mask of Zorro and many others. 

This awesome Francis Coppola art film is memorable for its all-star cast, percussive Stewart Copeland score, and atmospheric black & white cinematography shot in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Mickey Rourke radiates existential cool as a former teenage gang leader who returns home, only to be misunderstood by his idolizing kid brother, played by an 18-year-old Matt Dillon.
