EXHIBITION: 3 WOMEN, FIGURATIVELY SPEAKING
(BPT) - The end of 2014 is shaping up to be relatively quiet compared to the challenges of recent years - such as the fiscal cliff. After this year’s mid-term elections a lame duck Congress needs to fund the operations of the federal government, so it is possible new tax law changes could affect current income tax and financial planning. For the time being, though, the current laws provide the guidelines of how taxpayers need to plan.
The Hotel Congress Lobby Gallery presents an exciting new exhibition entitled Temple of Shadows, composed of photographs by local artists Abigail Gumbiner, Annu Palakunnathu Matthew and David H. Wells. This long term project, almost twenty years in the making and never before shown to the public, is a collection of fifteen prints that portray Temple Emanu-El throughout its renovation. The juxtaposition of the black and white photographs, representing the pre-renovation, and the color photographs, representing the post-renovation, connote feelings of re-purpose for the present Jewish History Museum.
Most of us remember Michael Keaton’s successful string of comedies in the early 1980s that started off with “Night Shift” and “Mr. Mom”. Afterwards, he starred in Tim Burton’s highly anticipated “Batman” in 1989. By 1992, he once again played the caped crusader in “Batman Returns”, earning Keaton widespread acclaim. Then something happened; Keaton’s movies were more “misses” than “hits” until he seemed to disappear from cinema screens overnight. Keaton’s career had fallen into the category of insignificance. He missed out on meatier roles and blockbuster box office winners. Years later, even as he found himself providing voices to successful animated films (“Cars”, “Toy Story 3”), Keaton was never handed that potential Academy Award acting part or movie. Until now.
