Join us via Zoom for a screening of the documentary All the Possibilities . . . Reflections on a Painting by Vernon Pratt and an online panel discussion about the film. The panelists are:

  • Marsha Gordon and Louis Cherry, directors of the prize-winning film.
  • Arts NC State Executive Director Rich Holly, a professional percussionist who created the documentary's dazzling soundtrack.
  • William Dodge, founder and director of the Vernon Pratt Project, which seeks to preserve the late Durham artist's work.

All the Possibilities…Reflections on a Painting by Vernon Pratt is a documentary meditation on Pratt’s most ambitious painting, a 1,400-square-foot systematic abstraction completed in 1982 but only exhibited for the first time at the Gregg Museum of Art & Design in 2018. With Holly’s percussive score, which was inspired by the painting’s mathematical formulas, the film immerses viewers in Pratt’s world of mathematically-based abstraction, a symphony in black and white. 

Registration is required.
