Starring: Ashley Lane Adams, Michelle Dockery, Jerry Eisley
Many Beautiful Things plunges viewers into the complex age of Victorian England to meet Lilias Trotter, a daring young woman who defied all norms by winning the favor of England’s top art critic, John Ruskin. In an era when women were thought incapable of producing high art, Ruskin promised that her work could be “immortal.” But with her legacy on the line, Lilias made a stunning decision that bids us to question the limits of sacrifice. As Lilias journeys to French Algeria in the late 1800’s to pioneer work with women and children, viewers are left to wonder, “Could you abandon a dream to pursue your true calling?”
This event is in conjunction with Pines & Palms: The Florida-Georgia Artists Association’s Cotton Pickin’ Plein Air Paintout.
