The SMALL FEATS show and sale is NAC’s largest annual fundraiser and an assured rocking good time in beautiful downtown St. Catharines-on-the-parking-lot. Every year NAC challenges our artist members to create killer-diller visual art no larger than one square foot. These are veritable OXO cubes of artistry, the sweet and condensed distillations of visual expression. They pack a wallop but they’re small enough to hang almost anywhere in your house: in the hall, beside the fridge, in front of the TV, or hey, stick one up in the car.
*VIP Preview for NAC Supporters, Patrons, and Champions – sign on, renew, or upgrade your membership today!

UK, USA 2015. Directed by Todd Haynes, 118 min. 14A
Nominated for six Oscars, acclaimed director Todd Haynes’ adaptation of a seminal Patricia Highsmith novel, Carol follows two women from very different backgrounds who find themselves in an unexpected love affair in 1950s New York. A young woman in her 20s, Therese Belivet (Rooney Mara) is a clerk working in a Manhattan department store and dreaming of a more fulfilling life when she meets Carol (Cate Blanchett), an alluring woman trapped in a loveless, convenient marriage. As their relationship develops, the world around them begins to fall apart.

USA 2015. Directed by Jay Roach, 124 min. 14A
In 1947, Dalton Trumbo, played by Bryan Cranston in an Academy-award-winning performance, was Hollywood’s top screenwriter until he and other artists were jailed and blacklisted for their political beliefs. Trumbo recounts how Dalton used words and wit to win two Academy Awards and expose the absurdity and injustice under the blacklist, which entangled everyone from gossip columnist Hedda Hopper (played by Helen Mirren) to John Wayne, Kirk Douglas and Otto Preminger.
Thurs 7 April at 8PM + Sat 9 April at 7PM
The Black Stallion
USA 1979. Directed by Carroll Ballard, 120 min. G
While traveling with his father, young Alec becomes fascinated by a mysterious Arabian stallion brought on board and stabled in the ship he is sailing on. When it tragically sinks, both he and the horse survive only to be stranded on a desert island. He befriends the horse, so when finally rescued, both return to his home where they soon meet Henry Dailey (Mickey Rooney), a once-successful trainer. Together they begin training the stallion to race against the fastest horses in the world. Long considered a children’s classic, come watch the film Roger Ebert described as “an epic.”

USA 2008. Directed by J.T. Petty. 96 min. 14A
This western-themed sci-fi thriller features the story of a group of settlers who mysteriously disappear one evening. As a posse sets out to find the townspeople who have gone missing, they end up discovering the mystery of the frontier that surrounds them. The creatures that lie waiting in the ground will frighten and thrill you in this excellent genre-bending experiment by director J.T. Petty.
Sat 9 April at 9:30PM
Paths of Glory
USA 1957. Directed by Stanley Kubrick, 88 min. PG
Paths of Glory is a masterful, unsentimental, classic anti-war film about World War I. It was 28 year-old Stanley Kubrick’s fourth feature-length film, a relatively low-budget, independent production with a distinctly European flavor. During World War I, commanding officer General Broulard (Adolphe Menjou) orders his subordinate, General Mireau (George Macready), to attack a German trench position. Though the mission is foolhardy to the point of suicide, Mireau commands his subordinate, Colonel Dax (Kirk Douglas), to plan the attack. When it ends in disaster, General Mireau demands the court-martial of three random soldiers to save face. Long considered one of Kubrick’s best films, don’t miss it on the big screen.

Call for Artists
Thunder Gallery, a new fine art gallery, craft and cultural ephemera boutique is set to open in May 2016 in the heart of the tourist area of Niagara Falls, Canada. We are located at 5400 Robinson Street in the old Pyramid Place complex. We are looking to connect the diverse tourist market to local artists and crafts people in a contemporary, inviting and comfortable atmosphere. We are currently seeking hand-made products, artist multiples and distinctly Canadian antique ephemera for sale at our space on a consignment basis.
