Elmore Leonard is arguably one of the greatest American writers in history. His work has been adapted many times for both TV and the big screen. Some adaptations have been exceptionally good, such as "Jackie Brown" or "Out of Sight." Others not so much, as was the case with the TV show "Karen Sisco" and the movie "The Big Bounce."
The Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts at 724 S. 12 St. will open three exhibits this weekend, the first to open at the gallery this year.
