Re: “Story of my life

Nice, how about an article on New Zealand born artist Valerie Unwin? - I believe Mary Allen can very likely put you in touch with this excellent artist, as she has always had a wish to show off the wild and wonderful West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand, a beautiful, spiritual and mysterious place wonderfully captured in her work.

Re: “Step inside


I forwarded your question to Daisy McConnell at the I.D.E.A. Space, who sent it on to Lynn Warshafsky, the executive director of Venice Arts, who writes:

"Funds have gone both to the women (directly) and to Reecontro to benefit the kids. They've also helped equip a small photo program in Mozambique, which we continue to support, as able, through a portion of funds raised through print sales. The balance goes to support future projects.
That being said, we generally see the project as more akin to photojournalism -- that is, to telling untold stories and raising awareness.
This is an interesting issue (and sometimes controversial, related to image ethics, money, meaningful contribution, etc.) and, hopefully one that a student will raise during our presentation."

To clarify, Reencontro is the orphanage that cares for the children in Mozambique. McConnell adds that this information is on display at the exhibit.

Thanks for your question,

Edie Adelstein

Re: “Step inside

Just one thing bothers me: Are these women and children getting real (name and $$) credit for their work?

Re: “Rocking orthodox

I'm a parishoner at Holy Theophany with some interest in art and experience with things Russian. It was a very interesting exhibition. I can identify with Fr Luke's torn state. Any self-aware Christian living in the world and trying hard to keep his heart in Christ can understand. Fr Luke's art is a great expression of that tension. The fact that he is very talented is also a plus. Beauty and God mixing together - who knew?

Re: “Rocking orthodox

Luke Sheffer's dedication was unrivaled. Had I known he wanted to be a monk, I would have made him prepare my dinner and sweep the studio floors. But he thanked me enough for teaching. I still have three of his incredible drawings hanging in my house and studio.

Re: “Soirees, spreads and salutations

Horrible musical selection, by the way. That is, if you already out of high school...

Re: “Stuff it

You gotta love when blowhards like Beck open their mouths to pontificate about how a film like Leonard's is "unbelievably wrong on just about every fact" yet when pressed for explanation and refutation he can give nothing but opinion and assumption. He truly is the blind leading the blind. But what's most scary is he's paid millions to do it.

Re: “Gang of 4

"Similar to Andrew Wyeth's hyperrealism, PĂ©rez's almost disturbing level of clarity hints at such a metaphysical world."?

This person is being paid to review art?

Re: “Gang of 4

Dear Edie, Are you really comparing this work to Thomas Kinkade's Landscapes?
Please take another look at his Mountain, Seascape, City Scene, etc. landscapes in
the Plein Air and French Impressionism and Studio paintings.
I would buy a Thomas Kinkade over these anytime! Thank you, God Bless!

Re: “Love and logic

The instincts of mating go back to a time before we talked. A million or more years?? Romantic, comes from Rom, it means sophisticated by what, two thousand years ago??. The sexual part of our existence, by today's standards has shrunk to a small percentage of our drives. This in fact means that those of us who lack enough libido will not procreate and our genes will die out. This reminds me of a friend who values his wife, his Mercedes and his high rise apartment in Mississauga. He is not the only friend of mine who has that kind of life. A person who seeks a mate is an amateur at that. It is little wonder that in the past parents decided who their offspring should mate with, marry? Most of the people writing about things learned to write but often not to understand what they are writing about. The yearning of a missed opportunity, is mostly for what one imagined was that and a fleeting smile is not much of a valued missed opportunity. Our culture teaches us more wrong decisions than right ones. Wisdom is not taught in school but an inherited talent few of us will ever experience except by meeting such a person and I am sure it will be a large, if not devastating, surprise every time.
