Sight & Sound
A multimedia lecture combining music & classic films by Richard Knox

Thursday, July 11   |  7:00pm
Members & Non, All Ages

Join us for the next multimedia presentation by Richard Knox. “Sight and Sound: Integration of Film Montage and Music” will examine how great directors such as Steven Spielberg, Alfred Hitchcock, David Lean, and William Wyler teamed with outstanding music composers such as John Williams, Bernard Herrmann, Maurice Jarre, and Dmitri Tiomkin to make filmgoers laugh and cry or add the elements of fear or suspense while creating some of the most memorable motion pictures in the history of Hollywood. With the passage of time, many of these film scores have become iconic. Who can imagine, for example, Gone With The Wind without Max Steiner’s “Tara’s Theme” or the conclusion of The Natural without Randy Newman’s uplifting score. This event is open to members and non members. Registration is required. Learn more at www.rknoxlectures.com. Register online or at (402) 334-6452.

– Squeeze tubes or watercolor paint pans are fine. Pans are ideal for outdoor painting and travel.

PAPER
– Approximately 9″x12″ 140lb cold-press or larger is recommended

– Flat brushes come in various widths, 1/2″ & 1″ (recommended)

PALETTES
– Plastic – To properly view the colors, a white palette is reccommended. Opt for rectangular palettes with large painting wells that can hold various colors.
