I Know a Man … Ashley Bryan 05/14/22 at 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm

I Know a Man … Ashley Bryan

Showtime @ Frontier

Sat May 14 | 1pm


General Admission | $10


I Know a Man … Ashley Bryan
Directed by Richard Kane
1hr 13mins
I Know a Man … Ashley Bryan is a story about a 90+ year-old artist who skips and jumps in his heart like a child, yet is a spiritually deep creative genius and poet/illustrator of 60+ children’s books, maker of magical puppets and sea glass windows from found objects inspired by his African heritage. Ashley lived on the remote Cranberry Islands, Maine until his death in 2022. He had been using art his entire life to celebrate joy, mediate the darkness of war and racism, explore the mysteries of faith, and create loving community. His life story and the art he makes from this wellspring of experience is an inspiration to people of all ages.The film opens with Ashley telling a hilarious story from his new book Can’t Scare Me to awestruck children. But soon after the film delves into the horrors he experienced in World War II at D-Day. “When you experience the tremendous carnage,” he asks, “Why does man choose war … that destroys everything you’ve built up? I lived through the time of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and that did it.” The film then explores his world as an African American experiencing racism from early on when his father “was given the mop and the broom”, a reference to the 1943 Gordon Parks photograph. He quotes Marian Anderson admonishing “to keep another down you have to hold them down, and therefore cannot rise and soar to the potential within you.” He takes comfort in and spreads beauty through the spiritual content of his art – his linocut prints exhorting “Let My People Go” and his beautiful sea glass windows of the Evangelists Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. So we begin to see his art as his way of spreading joy and peace in a less than perfect world.
Truth Tellers 05/14/22 at 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Truth Tellers

Showtime @ Frontier

Sat May 14 | 4pm, 7pm


General Admission | $10


Truth Tellers
Directed by Richard Kane
1hr 5mins

Truth Tellers is a film about American Courage. Artist and activist Robert Shetterly has painted over 250 portraits of great Americans and etched inspiring quotes into the backgrounds of each. From the fight to remove symbols of hate to sustainability and climate activism, and from whistleblowing to the rights of indigenous people, Shetterly uses his art to explore these activists’ response to some of the most pressing issues of our time. From contemporary activists for racial justice Zyahna Bryant, Maulian Dana, and Rev. Lennox Yearwood, to climate activists Bill McKibben, Kelsey Juliana, and Bill Bigelow, Shetterly puts them in the context of our great civil rights leaders John Lewis, Fannie Lou Hamer and Bayard Rustin. Truth Tellers is both a story of Shetterly’s art and activism and a history lesson of what is required of a citizen in a democracy.
An Evening with Paul Sullivan 05/14/22 at 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

An Evening with Paul Sullivan

Concerts for a Cause presents

Award-winning pianist and composer Paul Sullivan will perform live at the Brunswick UU Church for their Concerts for a Cause series on May 14, 2022 at 7:30 pm to raise money for this season’s charities:  Mid Coast Hunger Prevention Program and the Immigrant Legal Advocacy Project.  Doors open at 6:30 pm.


Paul Sullivan has enjoyed a richly varied and distinguished career as a composer and a pianist. His music blends jazz, classical, and new age styles. As a soloist, with his trio, and as a member of the Paul Winter Consort, he has played concert tours in most of the United States and Europe, as well as the Middle East, Central America, and Asia. Sullivan has worked in some of New York’s most prestigious jazz clubs as well and played with a wide variety of masters. His 18 CDs have sold over 300 thousand copies and have won 3 Indie Awards.

His music has been broadcast internationally, as well as on all the major American networks, including National Public Radio. He received a Grammy Award for his work on the Paul Winter Consort CD, Silver Solstice. In the theater world, he has worked as a Musical Director, pianist, and conductor for many Off-Broadway and Broadway shows. Sullivan also received commissions to write two musicals, including “The Last Ferryman” for which he wrote both the music and lyrics. He has worked extensively in the Modern Dance world, playing piano for Merce Cunningham’s classes, and writing music for the Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall.

He has also enjoyed a long friendship with the Pilobolus Dance Theater, for whom he has written close to 20 scores. Add to that composing and playing music for films, corporate productions including the IBM Golden Circle Awards, and a very happy three-year stint as the Music Teacher at the Brooklin Maine Elementary, (which has an enrollment of 55 kids from pre-school thr

ough 8th grade), and you get the picture: A long, lovely, lucky career, which shows no signs of stopping.

For the May 14th Concert, Paul will be playing a mix of original music from his CD’s, some new compositions he has been working on, some favorites from the American Songbook, and some Chopin.
