"Show Me The Monet: A Celebration of the Life and Art of CLAUDE MONET, 1840-1926"
2000-04-20 until 2000-05-01
Norfolk, NE, USA United States of America

Show Me The Monet, a celebration of the life and art of CLAUDE MONET, 1840-1926, opens April 20 and runs through May 1, 2000. Hosted by The UPTOWN Cafe in the newly updated Kensington at 4th & Norfolk Avenue in Norfolk Nebraska, the show will combine fine art with gardening and culinary arts. More than 7 months in production, the show will feature more than 50 different prints, fine art reproductions and posters of many sizes. The focus of the show will be the oil on can- vas paintings which are extraordinarily true to life. The three stage process vividly recreates the original colors, surface textures and brush strokes in bas relief to achieve museum quality.

Lunch & dinner creations from Monets cooking journals will be produced by The UPTOWNs chef staff. Slide shows will accompany some banquet dining.

Monets beloved gardens will be heralded in the Grand Lobby with representative flowers and plants, fine art prints, a hand drawn diagram of the gardens and a massive image from an aerial view.

The shows special features will include a gift shop and reference material, large screen video presentations, Internet links to Monet sites around the world and guides to Monet exhibitions.

The show is being actively anounced througout Nebraska and nine states: MN, WI,IA, KS, MO, IL, SD, CO & WY In 1997, The UPTOWN contracted and produced the first ever independent showing of John Lennons art - Music For The Eyes - which attracted more than 5,400 visitors from 17 states and 3 foreign countries in five days.

Why Monet, some might ask Because of his multi-dimensional creativity, we might answer. In the words of Arthur Koestler, True creativity often starts where language ends, Monet mani- fested a lifelong avalanche of creativity in each of three separate areas: painting, cooking and gardening. In doing so he created a realm of awesome productivity beyond the limitations of language.

And thats what really fires our spirits! Here is a bold and brilliant chance to celebrate the majesty and mastery of the past in the all-powerful pre- sent moment; to create an immersion experi- ence while crafting a living legacy for the creativity of young people. This is simply an epiphany of colorful awareness which flows quietly from the splash of flowers, the food and the diverse collection of art pieces, all readily available to the senses.

This is a not for profit exhibition. Please feel free to contact Rosalind at (402) 371-7171. e-mail: uptowner@webtv.net Mail: The UPTOWN, 326 Norfolk Avenue, Norfolk NE 68701
