Saturday night special

Posted: Thursday, April 29, 2004

Movies, art, food and music what more could you want? Kenai Peninsula College is offering an evening of entertainment Saturday with enough different attractions that there's sure to be something for everyone to enjoy.

The evening begins with a screening of "Bob's Shorts" at 6 p.m. in room 132 in the Brockel Building. Though it may sound risque, the name of this event refers to the presenter and his hobby, not his attire. Anchorage film buff Bob Curtis-Johnson will show a collection of short movies created for film competitions he holds every year.

The films typically run the gamut from humorous to dramatic with all manner of subject matter and plot lines presented. As Curtis-Johnson has said during past screenings in the area, if you don't like one film, wait a few minutes and there'll be another you may love.


"Untitled" is an alabaster carving done by Dale Olesgard in a beginning sculpture class.

Following the screening at 8 p.m. there will be a reception for KPC's Sudent Art Show in the Brockel Building entryway near the gallery. Food and live music by Mike Morgan will be available. The art show itself is on display in the Gary L. Freeburg Art Gallery at KPC through Monday. The show increases in submissions every year and is a testament to the diversity and quality of KPC's growing art department. The variety in pieces is a reflection of the variety of the interests and skill levels of the art students themselves.

Pieces range from ceramics and sculptures to drawings and paintings and were created in beginner- to advanced-level art classes. The show offers a unique opportunity to see the talents of up-and-coming as well as accomplished artists in the community, and to get some ideas for areas of art expertise that are available to explore at KPC.
