Eugene Hyon’s Non-Ephemeral Moments Realized

Posted March 6, 2014 by Ellen Gilmer

The highly energized yet, at times, startlingly tranquil exhibition of art photography by native New York photographer, Eugene Hyon, organizer and curator at A Gathering of the Tribes on East 3rd Street in Manhattan, was an original artist’s view of urbanites and cityscapes not to be missed. The gallery show entitled, Urban Landscape and People: A Symbiosis of Nature and Culture, was a joint showing of recent works by him and Multimedia Artist, Musician and Professor of Fine Arts, Pilar Viviente of the University of Miguel Hernandez, Altea, Valencia, Spain. Included in the week-long exhibition were art-evoked poetry recitals by Howard Pflanzer and Helen Peterson. There were also piano improvisations by Prof. Viviente and Richard Clements, enriched by the art.

‘Les Contes d’Hoffmann’ Production for the MET Opera 2017-18 Season

Posted November 19, 2017 by Ellen Gilmer

The current Metropolitan Opera production of Les Contes d’Hoffman from composer Jacques Offenbach (1819-1880), is expertly performed by an outstanding cast and the MET orchestra, led by conductor Johannes Debus. This production is richly empowered by the vibrant, excellent vocal and dramatic artistry of principal singers, Vittorio Grigolo, Erin Morley, Anita Hartig, Oksana Volkova, Laurent Naouri, Tara Erraught and Christophe Mortagne. This last opera from Offenbach combines a vibrant and varied score and libretto with engaging stage sets and three diverse storylines to present a production that is at once embodied with exotic elegance, blatant grotesqueness, depths of heartache and light-hearted humor. Genuine beauty is offset, then balanced with ill-intended sentiments, jealousies and calculated rivalries.

Don Rickles Live in West Palm Beach

Posted September 17, 2011 by Howie Grapek

Don Rickles was at the Kravis Center on January 26, 2011 – at 83, he was still looking fantastic and up to his old tricks. He is known as the master of insults and after 50 years in the business, continues to approach comedy like a matador faces a bull. Last night’s performance was not […]

Baltimore Kinetic Sculpture Race 2013 – packed with excitement and surprises!

Posted May 13, 2013 by John Soule

It is not about the fastest – it is about flair and it is about wacky! And this year was no exception.     Every May since 1999, the American Visionary […]
