The Possibilities of Pastels

Artists have used pastels and created works on paper since the Renaissance, but when we think of the medium, we generally visualize Renoirs or gentle landscapes and still lifes of
 19th century vintage.

The Play's the Thing
Drive My Car, Parallel Mothers

A performance of a classic play is the main action of one much-honored recent movie and a major subtext in another.

Miles David Moore

"Immersive Frida Kahlo"
in San Francisco

To Eat Or Not To Be
Arthur Danin Adler | Scene4 Magazine | www.scene4.comAmerica has no cuisine, it has Walmart. But it also has, in its vast, chaotic geography and culture, the joy of tastes of cuisines from almost every cooking culture in the world.

The Watergate
Les Marcott | Scene4 Magazine | www.scene4.comSince the 1970's, "Watergate" has been used as a metaphor for scandal.  Remove "water" and add any term with the suffix " -gate" attached and you have created a scandal du jour.
Les Marcott

Edward Hopper and the Tourist From Syracuse
Gregory Luce | Scene4 MagazineIt evoked for me the opening scene of the 1946 film version of The Killers in which the hit men arrive in the small town and approach the diner.

The Education of a Connoisseur
Part 4: Continuing Education

Patrick Walsh | Scene4 MagazineThe most rewarding way I've learned about wine has been to visit vineyards and meet with great vignerons. Those tours have been my postgraduate symposia.

The Skinny at the KGB Bar
Steiny was giddy with unkind glee to think that a 'Krainian has appropriated the name of Vladimir Putin's feared alma mater.
We know that Putin fears poets and other truthtellers.

Almost Time to Go

Pregnant the figure eight that I drew on manikins abandoned upstairs at the factory! We servants of the infinite had traveled far from our own coast.
