Leigh Anne’s work covers a broad range of visual interest, from whimsical to contemplative. Her strongest and most commented upon works so far are the portraits, of which the Steampunk Dr. Who and her self-portrait are two examples. Leigh Anne will show her recent as well as earlier work, some of which will be on loan to the gallery for this solo show.

It was great to see so many people coming into the gallery in the theme colors  of black, white and red! Here is a photo of our first visitors of the day on Saturday, February 22!

With over a foot of snow on the ground, it is a great day to watch a movie. Might I recommend “The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box”? This is a straight steampunk adventure story based on G.P. Taylor’s Mariah Mundi series.

Without giving too much away, the movie is set in 1885 and follows Mariah Mundi (played by Aneurin Barnard), who sets out to find his brother, Felix (played by Xavier Atkins), who has been taken by a sinister character named Otto Luger (played by Sam Neill). Both Mariah and Felix were given two halves of an amulet required to open a box believed to have belonged to King Midas. Mariah and Felix’s parents, unbeknownst to the brothers, are secret agents, in service to the Crown within the Bureau of Antiquities. The parents, Charles and Catherine (played by Ioan Gruffudd and Keeley Hawes) and are taken hostage and the brothers are left to fend for themselves. Captain Will Charity (played by Michael Sheen) uses various disguises in an effort to protect the boys as well as locate their parents. Otto and Monica (played with obvious glee by Lena Headey) work together to harness the power of gold to not only heal the sick, but achieve their ultimate villainous goal – to use the golden box’s power as a weapon to control the world!

There is a timely reference to the Greek antiquities in the possession of the British Museum at the beginning of the film, which made the news recently with the release of “The Monuments Men.” George Clooney commented at a news conference this week that he thinks the Parthenon Marbles, also known as the Elgin Marbles, should be returned to Greece. Steampunk is eternally relevant.

This is a wonderful movie along the lines of Hugo and Going Postal. The costumes are amazing (cameo broaches everywhere!) and the scenery is perfect. St. Michael’s Mount is the location of the fictional Prince Regent’s Hotel, which serves as Luger’s liar.

Looking forward to the sequel!
