The Boca Raton Public Library is pleased to exhibit “Abstract Realities,” by married artists Daniel Reed and Eve Teitelbaum Reed. Visitors to the Downtown Library will view a variety of paintings that showcase their unique abstract and colorful styles.
“This show highlights the paintings of a couple who are working artists,” notes Neil Schulhoff, Program Services. “Living and working together, one can see their material start to blend, but also juxtapose. The representational becomes abstract, and the abstract becomes more lifelike.”
“Abstract Realities” will run from March 26–April 27, 2018, at the Downtown Library, an Art in Public Places venue, at 400 NW 2nd Avenue. The exhibit is free and open to the public during regular library hours.

Continuing our focus on the diverse works of Asian filmmakers, this month's feature is Akira Kurosawa's brilliantly conceived re-telling of Shakespeare's "King Lear," which magically mixes Japanese history, Shakespeare's plot and Kurosawa's own feelings about loyalty. Set in 16th century Japan, Lord Hidetora announces his intention to divide his land equally among his three sons, which unleashes a power struggle between the three heirs. (Rated R, 162 minutes)
