Premiere of 'Hancock' the movie at Conroy Studio

HANCOCK, Minn. -- Hancock has been captured on film! "Lakes Country Living" is a show that has been made for TV broadcast in North Dakota and certain areas of West Central Minnesota. The show, which is produced and hosted by Artist Steven Henning, focuses on stories about the arts and rural living. Henning says "The stories we are gathering show the uniqueness of rural towns and touch on the sad points as well as the joys of living in a small rural community, and that's what makes it sweet to live out here."

Steve Henning and his wife, Jackie, filmed a segment in the Dan Allenspach studio and gardens, the Phyllis Joos studio, and the Della Conroy studio, as well as the poetry of the late Doug Rasmusson, read by Louise, and the music played by Thursday night jam.

The public is invited to attend the preview of this film which will be shown on the lawn at the Della Conroy art studio, Thursday, Aug. 23 at 6 p.m. The studio is across from the ballpark at 674 7th St. in Hancock. At 7 p.m., the Bluegrass players will jam on the patio of the studio, and people are welcome to join in or sit back and listen.

Barbeques, chips and soft drinks will be served and the studio will be open with art from various area artists on display and for sale. In the event of bad weather, the movie will be shown in the Conroy Well Drilling Shop located in the alley behind the studio.

This event is sponsored in part by the Hancock Library. Anyone interested in attending is encouraged to bring a lawn chair, settle in around the patio, and enjoy a preview movie of Hancock along with some great entertainment.
