The incredible play Standing on Ceremony recently performed at CPT Was an opportunity for a meet and greet at Dare2Care's POP-UP Studio. Student scholars and friends had delicious hors d'oeuvres from Luxe Restaurant. The room was abuzz with conversation. What a charming evening! OMG... the play is astounding; the actors brilliant; the emotion overwhelming. Laugh, or cry? plenty of both. After the play our chat with the actors and students was intense and encouraging. THINGS they might be a changin'!
The amazing part of the Doug Utter story would be that his work is so unique, so different, and yet so familiar and accessible. This recent show is like going home and visiting with cherished family members. Love and respect, longing and grief are keys to Doug's paintings. I have the good fortune of owning a portrait of myself, done by Doug. Friends have said that it is very similar to a photo of me as a child. The photo captured emotions that resonate for me still. Doug was able to convey those feelings in the painting without ever having seen the photo. Please excuse the poor audio - more importantly, enjoy the paintings!

The Battalion of Brigade for the Hunger Network reminded me of when BRIGADE was on Coventry. Check out the video I did back in the day!
Well, it sounds kind of cool to say Hunger Games; but actually design students from the Virginia Marti School of Fashion Design created amazing fashions from food containers to benefit the Hunger Network of greater Cleveland. The fashions were fabulous but a little " trashy " (couldn't help myself)!
The students were charming and very enthusiastic. The fashion,
over the top. Look out Fashion World!
What a spectacular evening! Cleveland's favorite celebrities rocked the Hunger Network Runway. DJ MIMO kept the energy high throughout the evening; many retailers from Beachwood Place participated; Dochertty models absolutely took the runway to amazing levels of energy. I felt like I might be in LA! How cool it is that right here in Cleveland we have so much going on.
A little more about BRIGADE: OMG! The clothes were spectacular, classic, and on trend. Brian and Dan, great job ! In the audience, the O'Neil brothers were more than present. If you don't believe me, check it out .
