Exhibition on Screen is back on the big screen at Damariscotta’s Lincoln Theater, and the 2022-23 season is kicking off with a bang. On Thursday, Dec. 15 and Friday, Dec. 16, experience the most recognizable artwork in America through “Hopper: An American Love Story.” Countless painters, photographers, filmmakers and musicians have been influenced by his art, including Rothko, Banksy, Alfred Hitchcock, David Lynch, and even The Simpsons – but who was he, and how did a struggling illustrator create such a bounty of notable work?
“Hopper: An American Love Story” takes a deep look into Edward Hopper’s art, his life, and his relationships. From his early career as an illustrator; his wife giving up her own promising art career to be his manager; his critical and commercial acclaim; and in his own words – this film explores the enigmatic personality behind the brush. Combined with expert interviews, diaries, and a startling visual reflection of American life, Hopper brings to life America’s arguably most influential artist.
And coming in March of 2023, Exhibition on Screen explores the work of Mary Cassatt, who made a career painting the lives of the women around her with radical images showing them as intellectual, feminine and real - a major shift in the way women appeared in art. In April Exhibition on Screen brings a major retrospective of  Vermeer’s most famous masterpieces to the big screen, including “Girl with a Pearl Earring,” “The Geographer,” “The Milkmaid,” “The Little Street,” “Lady Writing a Letter with her Maid,” and “Woman Holding a Balance.” And closing out the season in May, “Tokyo Stories” takes us on a thrilling encounter with one of the world’s great art capitals.
Experience “Hopper: An American Love Story,” an impressing biography of a rare artist whose work is accessible to both the casual and critical observer. Playing for two screenings only,  Dec. 15 at 7 p.m. and Dec. 16 at 2 p.m.  Tickets: $15 adult, $13 member, and $5 youth ages 18 and under, are available in advance through the theater website at www.LincolnTheater.net or at the door beginning 30 minutes before showtime. Lincoln Theater is located at 2 Theater St., downtown Damariscotta.
