Business briefs: Gore’s ‘Truth’ sequel a sellout; artists start Saturday demos; Breckenridge, Keystone to open Nov. 10
Fox News Entertainment reported Monday that Al Gore’s follow-up to his 2006 Oscar-winning documentary, “An Inconvenient Truth,” bombed over the weekend at the box office, reaching only as high as No. 15 overall and earning about $1 million.
That was not the case, however, for a Friday screening of the film, “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power,” presented by the Summit Colorado Interfaith Council, in conjunction with the Climate Reality project, at Skyline Cinema in Dillon because it was entirely sold out.
After the screening, a panel featuring local clergy, a representative of the High Country Conservation Center, an instructor at Colorado Mountain College and David Axelrod, co-founder of Broken Compass Brewing in Breckenridge, spoke for about 30 minutes about the role faith plays in the climate movement, local programs offered at HC3 and the importance of reducing greenhouse gases.
Silverthorne art gallery begins Saturday demos at outlets
Based out of a co-op gallery in the Outlets at Silverthorne, the High Country Artisans are now doing live demonstrations from 1-4 p.m. every Saturday.
The demonstrations are held in front of the gallery at 135 F Stephens Way in Silverthorne, across from the Columbia store at the outlet mall.
The month started with three watercolor painters — Judy Day, Kevin Reynolds and Linda Marr — showing their craft on Aug 5. This weekend, Keats Scott is bringing in her sewing machine to show how she quilts her mini quilt and door fobs.
On Aug. 19, woodworking specialist Len Szmurlo will be on his scroll saw, and on Aug. 26, Gail Shears will walk through the steps of creating a stained glass piece using the Tiffany-style copper foil method.
There is no need to RSVP for the demos. The gallery is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. Call 970-513-8033 or find them on Facebook at Facebook.com/HighCountryARTisans for more.
