African American Artist Unveils Painting at Mother's Day Tea, 5/10
by BWW News Desk - April 11, 2014

The first 25 guests with paid reservations will receive Mother's Day brooches designed especially for the occasion and a special gift from b.collins Studio. There will be prizes for the prettiest hats and cups, raffles, a silent auction, and a petite boutique. The price is $50 for tickets purchased by April 30th. Reservations are required. Gross proceeds from the silent auction will benefit breast cancer research. Collins painted the first 'High Tea' in 2003 for a fundraiser benefiting a friend who was in the last stages of breast cancer and needed funds to seek aggressive treatment not covered by her insurance. This friend later succumbed to her illness and died. Collins remembers witnessing as a child her grandmother in the last stages of breast cancer at a time when much less was known about the disease. In later years one of Collins' aunts endured a radical mastectomy considered standard treatment at the time, later another aunt succumbed to the disease and died, and numerous friends and associates have had to face the challenge of breast cancer. Fortunately, although scarred, most ended their challenge with favorable outcomes. Collins performs a self-examination daily. With art Collins hopes to contribute to the day when mothers and daughters everywhere will live in a world where breast cancer is a thing of the past. (more...)


The Bush Dilemma Has The Art World's Panties in a Bunch
by Barry Kostrinsky - April 11, 2014

Powerful teams of married art writers are reviewing his painted portraits of world leaders he met while playing president. Lady Gaga and Jay-Z were allowed in at the top of the art world for a day. Her pop fame and costumes and his good looks, money and past rap edge were enough to get them in and after all they were already in the music world: that suburb just down the block from the art world. Zimmerman entered the art world through the prison gates, the only pain less prison backdoor I can imagine. But George W Bush came in through a White house back door quite unlike the one JFK slipped in and out of in his day. (more...)
