Gary Akers will present and discuss the film “Gary Akers:  A Quiet Way of Life,” which was filmed on location at the artist’s studio in Union, Ky. and at the Borders brothers farm in Burlington, Ky., Sunday, Aug. 22 at 2 p.m. at the Green Schoolhouse, a restored one-room Finnish school located two miles down the St. George peninsula on Route 131 south.

Attendees will have the rare opportunity to view the three bachelor Borders brothers and glimpse into another world, a world of days gone by. Several of Akers’ paintings of the Borders brothers will be on exhibit including “The Last Night.” Painted from memory, this drybrush watercolor of Woodrow is an unforgettable glimpse of “Woody” on his last night alone at the Borders farm house — the last time he would ever live his own way of life, the only way of life he had ever known.

The Borders brothers series is now being scheduled in major art museums including the opening tour beginning at the Behringer-Crawford Museum in Covington, Ky., October  2011 through January 2012.

Ashley Akers, filmmaker and daughter of Gary and Lynn Rita Akers, also will be on hand to discuss her short film “Smitten,” a dark comedy that just won the Best of Cincinnati Award 2010 in the 48 Hour International Film Festival. Ashley is a graduate of the New York Film Academy, New York City.
