Back in the 1984, two local collectors, Ronnie and John Shore, purchased all but five of the paintings in Barbara Rose’s exhibition American Painting: The Eighties, first on display at the Grey Art Gallery, New York University in 1979 and then traveling to multiple countries for the next three years. The Shores have generously donated all forty of these paintings to the Cincinnati Art Museum. Included in this gift is Frances’ diptych, Mokroe.

short film news
FB Just began to shoot a new short film on a female tango dancer.
Here we are setting up to shoot a scene of the tango dancer as a young girl. Master shot camera is out of view as is the sound recording artist. Keeping fingers crossed!
“The Audition”, Frances’ new short film premiered in Paris at the Ethnografilm Festival in April at Cinema Lepic.
Interview/documentary of an actor speaking about auditioning for acting roles as a major part of an actor’s life. This video is a movie in a movie-shooting a self tape, conducting an interview about shooting an audition, and shooting a video about the shooting of the self tape.
“The Audition” and “Regina B” will premiere in Canada this September at the Sunrise Film Festival in Nova Scotia.
