Enter Stage Right

Our friend Amanda has been acting for the last ten years and we recently saw her in a riveting performance of Antony and Cleopatra, at the Kerrytown Concert House in Ann Arbor. Her next role, however, is more behind the scenes: she’s the director.

The plays were written by local playwright James Ingagiola and will be performed as part of the Ann Arbor Civic Theatre’s Studio Series, October 19-21. Exploring the various styles of writers such as Pinter and Mamet, the production will prove to be an exciting interpretation of Shakespeare. We can’t wait to see it! We were invited to snap some publicity photos of the amazing cast. Enjoy!

A Must-Do: Our Upcoming Class on Collecting Art

I’m really excited about the course I’m teaching at Washtenaw Community College this Fall. “Collecting Art: Deciphering What It Is and What’s It’s Worth” is going to be an engaging and interactive look at what the differences are between a giclee versus a painting versus an etching.* We’ll also look at the primary, secondary markets and auction house culture. Students will have the opportunity to bring in examples as we decide which ones might be worth money, why they are and what to do if you strike the jackpot on a great find.

Lithograph or etching? What’s the difference?

How do you tell the difference between an oil or acrylic painting? Or if it’s a painting at all…

Ask all the questions you want and learn about how to insure, maintain and start your own collection. Sign up is now open and only $39 for the two-day course. See you this October!

Wolfram

Wolfram, orĀ Tungsten as it’s better known, is number 74 on your periodic table and arguably the most divine element ever discovered. Although Tungsten has many uses, it’s its involvement in incandescent light bulbs that gives it the power to create different worlds.

The below images capture Tungsten lights, coupled with some fog, adding levels of fantastically unnatural warm tones to otherwise normal scenes.
