Fridays @ 5: Word and Image - The Many Worlds of Regina Scully and Roberto Bentivegna @ Hermitage Artist Retreat

New Orleans-based artist Regina Scully will discuss the micro-universes she creates in her paintings and showcase some of her works in an exhibit entitled “Small Paintings and Works on Paper.” (This exhibit runs through December in the Palm House at the Hermitage, 6630 Manasota Key Road; 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday.) Italian screenwriter Roberto Bentivegna will take you behind the scenes of his film now in pre-production by Ridley Scott’s company, showing how storyboards, look books, and mood reals are used to create a film.
