One highlight is a duplication of a synagogue from Gwozdziec (now Ukraine). The Bema, a raised platform for Torah readings, is painted with primary colors that dominate a dazzling array of patterns, topped by a ceiling with zodiac signs and animals. The artist used his or her imagination in depicting an elephant - a dachshund with tusks and trunk. (see essay)

New: Film: The First TCM Film Festival

Cornelia Seckel & Raymond J. Steiner.  A toast as the last ink on paper issue of ART TIMES is ready to go to the print
Robert Osborne

It was a sunny day in April, when I just happened to be strolling down Hollywood Boulevard, who should stop me in the street, but Robert Osborne himself!
I struggled to grasp the realization that I was face to face with a man I worshipped - the man I dreamed of growing up to be. A man whose warmth and knowledge of classic film allowed me to believe idols still roam the planet.…

New Theater: Is Broadway Invulnerable?
By Wendy Caster
Roger McGuinn

The original title of this essay was “Is Broadway Committing Suicide? And Does It Matter?” But the more I thought about it, the more I came to admire Broadway’s dogged longevity. … Broadway also has those amazing buildings. I love all theaters. Holes in the wall. Black boxes tucked away in office buildings. Dingy rooms on scary blocks. Theatrical magic can happen anywhere. But Broadway theaters are gorgeous and full of history. …(see essay)

New: Speak Out — Ceativity Flows from the Hand:
                 The Case for Longhand Writing
By Leigh Donaldson

……Composing thoughts and reflections on paper is a powerful layer of expression that should never be reduced to being an antiquated art form. Short of face-to-face contact, handwriting remains an effective communicative tool for expressing the full range of human thought and emotion. Spoken words often leave very little trace unless recorded by a machine. The written word can be literally and physically held on to for a lifetime and beyond for everyday people, historians, biographers and writers alike. (see essay)

Dance: Winter Memories
By Dawn Lille

Guillermo Estrada, Jr. and Laurel Lynch as the hero and heroine of Mark Morris’s production of Henry Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas

This past winter dance in NYC was as full of opportunities for watching as ever. Although each performance leaves the viewer with a different outlook or feeling, a few stand out.…One all-Robbins program included The Concert, Glass Pieces and Moves. The last, a ballet danced in complete silence, was created in 1959. … (see essay)

Help Desk 4 Creatives: Welcome to the Help Desk
By Merritt Minnemeyer

We are inherently creative. As humans, we naturally draw inspiration from our environment, and interpret it into every day practice, whether we are conscious of it or not. Artists, of course, are very aware of the creative process and use it to offer reflection, beauty, and powerful emotional connection to the collective culture. Where artists often falter, however, is applying those gifts in practical matters. .…… (see essay)

Dance: Christopher Hampson’s plan for the Scottish Ballet and its dancers
By Justine Bayod Espoz
Cornelia Seckel & Raymond J. Steiner.  A toast as the last ink on paper issue of ART TIMES is ready to go to the print

Chrisopher Hampson, a Manchester-native took the reins at the Scottish Ballet as artistic director in 2012 … His leadership has contributed to the blossoming of a more technically outstanding and artistically diverse ballet and the creation of a supportive atmosphere for outstanding dancers.
