Dale Schierholt presents the premier screening of his new film. Schierholt and featured sister artists Jane Burton and Tyler Burton will be available for a Q&A after the screening.

For over ten years filmmaker Dale Schierholt has examined the unique world of the visual artist by telling the stories of some of the art world’s most renowned figures. Currently he is profiling many of the most influential names in California art through his California Masters Series. The first film in that series, on Tony DeLap, premiered at Laguna Art Museum last summer. In addition to telling the stories of several recognizable names he has also been offering the same intimate portraits of several emerging artists across the country. In Burton to Burton, Schierholt, for the first time, is telling the story of two artists in one film. The film takes us inside the studios of California sculptors and sisters Jane Burton and Tyler Burton and offers viewers insight into the inspirations and motivations of both these compelling artist’s work. By profiling two creative personalities in one film and intercutting these two stories into one narrative, Schierholt is also exploring the common thread that runs through the artistic persona – one in this case that is heightened by the sibling bond.
