There are many who do not care for Wes Anderson’s films. They are non-mainstream, quirky and weird films that often revolve around unflattering individuals usually in the midst of some mid-life crisis. His films have a very specific aesthetic that can easily annoy some viewers with their repetitiveness and character-alienating features.
Though he does not appeal to many moviegoers, Anderson’s loyal fan base has stuck by him since his film debut “Bottle Rocket” in 1996 and enjoyed the six offbeat dramedies he has made since. His latest film “The Grand Budapest Hotel” features a huge ensemble cast and one of Anderson’s most energetic and madcap story lines yet with a film that is bound to reach all audiences.
There are not many places in Savannah where one can find Bowie-inspired sequential art, giraffe sculptures and a giant ceramic bust under the same roof. Fortunately for lovers of the eclectic gallery show, Ashmore currently has all those pieces and more.
The third of four Armstrong capstone exhibitions, “At This Rate,” hosted its reception at Ashmore Gallery on April 4. The five graduating seniors showing their work were Adam Uhlig, Jud Wichers, Sarah Sexton, Morgan Zilm and George Papadopoulos.
Immediately upon entering the gallery, Uhlig’s giant ceramic head was the first thing visitors saw. “Breakthrough” is a massive clay bust that took over 40 hours to make and was first revealed at last fall’s Raku Pizza Night.
