Come see the gorgeous gals, the bodacious broads, the squealers and peelers in Sirens & Stilettos Cabaret as they celebrate Santa's birthday in their new strip tease-o-rama "A Little Christmas," when they won't be donning their gay apparel but rather taking it off. And they're classing it up a bit by putting this show on at the Little Theatre.… [...]

Elephant work in progress
I am originally from St. Petersburg, Russia, where I had my formative introduction to arts and culture. Growing up in that environment I was surrounded by two artistic worlds; the great Russo-European traditions of the city's museums, architecture, and performing arts, but also the underground cultural explosion that came with the end of the Cold War – rockers, hippies, and a youthful fascination with the ‘new.' Since I left Russia in the early 1990s, I have developed in several directions across different places. I spent a few years near London in the UK, before moving to Birmingham, Alabama for six years. It was in Birmingham that my art-making began to shape up. Maybe because of the studio courses at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, or maybe because of the southern charm? The Fisherman and the Jinni, from my Arabian Nights series Since 2002, I have lived and worked in the Washington, DC area. I have painted, photographed, and completed a master's degree at Georgetown, studying cultural diplomacy and Cambodian cultural regeneration. In terms of artistic inspiration, DC is the great place as it's full of diverse people, world-renowned museums, and space to breathe. In addition to Washington, DC, I spend [...]

David Hockney at The MET thru February 2018In the early 1990s, I remember staying at a friends house high up in the Hollywood Hills, and towards the top we drove past the home of David Hockney. From the outside it looked just like it does in his many paintings. Hockney has used his home as subject matter over many years, and that becomes evident when you take a look through the new show that has just opened at The MET.Hockney in early 1960sWe were in New York City to see shows and have been following Hockney's work for many years and then recently I have been reading about his use of digital media and his innovations in his art, and we were eager to see the exhibition. Hockney started to gain recognition for his art in the early 1960s fresh out of art school when his paintings were a blend of Pop Art and expressive representation. Figurative art was not in the ascendant position that it is today, and David Hockney made his early work in the face of that opposition.Hockney's portrait of Fred and Marcia Weisman, American CollectorsAcrylic on canvas, 1968At The MET there are [...]

View at The Metropolitan Museum of Art,New York City, New YorkDecember 2, 2017You simply can't miss walking into the MET Museum this season!We were lucky and found a parking space on the street a block away from the Metropolitan Museum of Art and strolled in early Saturday to see Michelangelo and David Hockney. Both of these artists deserve the kind of full length portrait that these exhibitions give you, and they do not let you down!Adam and Eve driven out of ParadiseWalk into the show of Michelangelo - Divine Draftsman & Designer, and make sure that you have enough time to see the artwork - because you may get pushed along by crowds who are visiting the museum on any given day. The lights are low, and the focus is on sensitive drawings starting with the early days of Michelangelo ( 1475-1564 ) and the artwork of his mentors and students. Going back in time you realize that to study the human form, to give a drawing proper proportion and accuracy - one would have to be familiar with anatomy - and one way was to dissect a corpse ( which was illegal at the time ).
