Enjoy a glass of wine while exploring your creative side! Join CAN-NC and be inspired by Betty Parsons, best known for her early promotion of Abstract Expressionism. A talented artist, dealer and collector, Betty Parsons took chances and exhibited the work of artists that she believed should be seen, not just for commercial value. At a time when the market for avant-garde American art was minuscule, Parsons was the only dealer willing to represent artists like Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko. In the 1960’s she had several museum and university exhibitions. In 1968, she was exhibited at London’s Whitechapel Gallery and became an international artist. Her private art collection of 300 works has traveled around America.

CAN-NC Executive Director Lia Miller has been painting since the age of 10 and enjoys teaching as often as possible

Movie Night – Too Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar

Come out for movie night at Senior Resources! We’ll be watching Too Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar. 

About the movie:

Elite Manhattan drag queens Vida Boheme (Patrick Swayze) and Noxeema Jackson (Wesley Snipes) impress regional judges in competition, securing berths in the Nationals in Los Angeles. When the two meet pathetic drag novice Chi-Chi Rodriguez (John Leguizamo) — one of the losers that evening — the charmed Vida and Noxeema agree to take the hopeless youngster under their joined wing. Soon the three set off on a madcap road trip across America and struggle to make it to Los Angeles in time. (Google)
