From Nothing, Something

From Nothing, Something

Everyone has ideas. But what where do they come from? And what ensures they keep coming? How do you sort the genius ideas from the useless ones? Why invest all this hope and energy into making things in the first place?

From Nothing, Something profiles creative thinkers across a variety of disciplines and finds common methods, habits, mindsets and neuroses that help bring breakthrough ideas into being. This is a thoughtful, intimate, often funny look at the creative process – straight from the brains of some of our culture’s most accomplished and inspiring talents.

Documentary. 79 minutes. HD. USA. English. 16:9. Color

Main Street Arts is screening this film on January 23, at 7:00. It’s followed by a Q&A (via Skype) with director, Tim Cawley. Their Facebook event page is here.

Main Street Arts – Clifton Springs, NY

Main Street Arts Logo

I ran across Main Street Arts, a gallery located in Clifton Springs, NY, while browsing City Newspaper tonight. As I poked around I saw some familiar names listed as the artists for the exhibition called Locality, which ended August 30. I saw Rochester Artisan painter Steve Duprey and other artists like Andrew Cho, Marisa Krol and Kate Wharton.

Main Street Arts offers classes (Steve Duprey teaches there too) so I was able to add them to our Learning page as well as our Galleries, Shops and Calls for Art pages.

I joined their mailing list so I can stay up to date on their exhibitions. I’d like to get there for this one:

Rochester Area Fiber Artists 
Dates: November 6–December 31
Opening: November 9, 2013
Trunk Show: December 6, 2013

Wait a minute! Did this gallery just open in June 2013? No wonder it hasn’t been familiar to me. Now I’m extra happy to blog about it. It looks like a great place!
