Damn Fine News Day: Specs on the "Twin Peaks" art show; 'Blue Velvet'Blu-Ray to include deleted scenes!

Some news gleaned via the great David Lynch website today. Firstly, the site provides some details about the Twin Peaks art exhibition opening next month in L.A., a recent Psychobabble news item. In the Trees: TWIN PEAKS 20th Anniversary Art Exhibition will not only feature work by a bevy of excellent artists, such as Paul Chatem and Jessica Joslin, but it will also include pieces by “Peaks” stars Grace Zabriskie (Sarah Palmer), a kaleidoscopic collage artist, photographer Richard Beymer (Ben Horne), and multi-media genius/“Twin Peaks” co-creator (not to mention Gordon Cole) David Lynch!

Secondly, during an interview on the Morning Becomes Eclectic radio show earlier this week, Lynch discussed the upcoming Blu-Ray release of his 1986 noir masterwork Blue Velvet, revealing that the disc will include deleted scenes long believed to have been lost! The Blue Velvet DVD currently in circulation includes production stills of these scenes, but the actual footage had been missing for decades until being discovered in Seattle recently. The disc is slotted for release this year. No word yet on whether it will also be re-released on standard DVD for those of us who have not made the leap to Blu-Ray. Stay tuned…
