OUR NEXT MEETING TUESDAY
1/21/20 - 7PM
We will be featuring an award winning documentary film with Debra Magid and Zach Grant. This is a film about art, health and the will to cope. “Shake With Me” was directed, Produced & Photographed by Zack Grant. Story by Zack Grant & Melanie Vi Levy.
Debra Magid is an artist and designer who was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease (PD) in 2012. In the fall of 2016, Debra agreed to let Zach film her for a documentary to explore the relationship between her art and her condition. While the documentary's narrative thread will be Debra's growth as an artist in the face of PD, this film will tell a deeper story of a tenuous and unique moment in time where Debra's health is stable, her art is thriving, and the future is entirely unknown.

Happy Holidays and a Happy and Healthy New Year to all.
