Published 10:42 pm Tuesday, September 23, 2014

Upstairs Artspace has announced its art film series schedule for the rest of 2014, adding a series of 30-minute noontime films to its regular Tuesday night series.  In addition, there will be a special two-hour Sunday documentary film about artist brothers Tom and Jesse Flowers accompanied by commentary and discussion with the new film’s director, Kristy Higby and her husband, Mark Flowers, son of Tom.  The documentary will be shown on Sunday, Oct. 19 from 4-6 p.m.  All events are free.

The regular Tuesday night films vary in length, but all begin at 6:30 p.m. and are preceded by a half-hour of popcorn and conversation.

The noontime Art 21 series, originally aired on PBS, covers different contemporary artists and ideas in 30-minute segments, and will be shown on Wednesdays and Fridays beginning Sept.24 and running through Nov. 7, with the exception of the week of Oct. 6 when the gallery is closed for installation.
