Walley Films in the spotlight
Let me tell you about the Walleys. In a word, they are awesome. The husband-and-wife filmmaking duo live in San Antonio, and have been producing experimental film work since 2006. You may have seen one of their many documentaries on Texas-based art and artists on Glasstire.com. Or maybe, just maybe, you’ve viewed the amazing video they created for Artpace (if you haven’t, you can check it out below).
The Walleys were also featured in the 2009 Artpace Holiday Window, an exhibition that paired the duo with students from the Henry Ford Academy. The installation, Presents Made From Memory, was a series of short films that celebrated the season of giving, depicting three of the students participating in acts of kindness, and lit up our Main Avenue windows.
Tomorrow evening, Angela and Mark Walley, professionally known as Walley Films, present a special screening of their collaborative films from the past three years at the Chiego Lecture Hall at the McNay Art Museum. In their documentaries, the Walleys explore the creative processes of artists working in a variety of media, including performance, sculpture, and photography. Also included in the program is a selection of visual short films that capture the world from their unique perspective, transforming the lives of their subjects through the camera.
This event, part of the museum’s Get Reel Film series, is free for McNay members, $5 for non-members. The presentation begins at 6:30pm.
