Thursday Art Night planned

Baker Art Guild will present the film “Gregory Crewdson - Brief Encounters” for Thursday Art Night on July 31 at the Eltrym Theatre, 1809 Second St. The evening begins with storytelling at 6:30 p.m. The theme is “Brushes with Celebrity.” The film start at 7 p.m. Tickets are $6 adults, $4 students and proceeds benefit the Crossroads Scholarship Fund.

About the film:

Acclaimed photographer Gregory Crewdson doesn’t just “take” his images, he creates them, through elaborate days and weeks of invention, design, and set-up. The epic production of these movie-like images is both intensely personal and highly public: they begin in Crewdson’s deepest desires and memories, but come to life on streets and soundstages in the hills towns of Western Massachusetts. In his decade-long project “Beneath the Roses” he uses light, color and character to conjure arresting images, managing a crew of 60 amidst seemingly countless logistical and creative obstacles.

Filmed over a decade, beginning in 2000, Gregory Crewdson: Brief Encounters provides an unparalleled view of the moment of creation of his images. It also reveals the life-story behind the work—through frank reflections on his life and career, including the formative influences of his psychologist father and his childhood fascination with the work of Diane Arbus. Childhood fears and ideals, adult anxieties and desires, the influences of pop-culture all combine to form who buy cialis we are, and for Crewdson, motivate his work.

There is no specific backstory, no before-and-after to Gregory Crewdson’s images, simply the moment that lends itself to mystery and intrigue. Hundreds of movie lights combine with the setting sun in a perfect moment of illumination.

Baker City will be the epicenter for Babe Ruth baseball in the Northwest next week.

Ten teams from five states — Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming — will gather at the Baker Sports Complex for the Pacific Northwest Regional Tournament Aug. 4-10.

The winning team will advance to the Babe Ruth World Series, for ages 13-15, from Aug. 20-27 at Longview, Wash.

Baker County and Union County will each have a team in the tournament, said Carrie Folkman of Baker City, the tournament’s treasurer.

Each of the eight other teams will be spending the week in Baker City.

Overall, with players, coaches, parents and siblings, the influx of visitors associated with the tournament should exceed 300, Folkman said.

The Babe Ruth regional tournament is precisely the sort of event promoters of the Sports Complex envisioned when the facility, which includes two baseball and two softball fields, was being planned about 15 years ago north of the Baker High School track.

“We have a premier facility in Oregon,” Folkman said. “The goal always was to attract this kind of tournament.”
