Days in the Life by Philip Willey

  • Synopsis of the book by Efren Quiroz of Exhibit-V: Simon is a groovy young rock writer in Swinging London who always manages to be in the right place at the right time. We follow him to the TV studios where Ready Steady Go is produced, then on to the flat of art dealer Robert Fraser where only the hippest of the hip hang out. He drives out to Weybridge to visit John Lennon, Abbey Road Studios where Sergeant Pepper is being made, and the Bag of Nails club for the London debut of Jimi Hendrix. Many years later, in Bermuda, he reflects on his life and has an encounter with John Lennon’s ghost. All that in 54 beautifully illustrated pages. Fact or fiction? Or a mixture of both? Read it and decide for yourself.

We made a trip to Seattle Washington in November 15-17 2012 for the 19th Annual Single Malt and Scotch Whisky Extravaganza at the Rainier Club and visits to both the Seattle Art Museum (SAM) and the Roq Le Rue Gallery.

At the SAM we saw ELLES: Women Artists from the Centre Pompidou (which we also saw when we were in Paris, France). Cool to see it again though, makes the art world smaller with each go-see.

And then we went to the Roq La Rue Gallery which I’d been itching to see for a long time.  The current exhibition featured Josh Keys and John Brophy.  I met Kirsten Anderson, Gallery Director, and bought a couple of art books (Mark Ryden and Marion Peck).

Learn more about the PechaKucha Tradition at pecha-kucha.org

PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of “chit chat”, it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It’s a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace.

 

 

 

Pine Cone Squirrel Ornament with Dalmore Scotch Whisky

Pine Cone Squirrel with miniature bottle of Dalmore Scotch Whisky

Pine Cone Squirrel with miniature bottle of Dalmore Scotch Whisky by Carollyne Yardley

I will be selling a miniature painting called Snowman Squirrel and greeting cards at The apARTment Gallery this winter (dates to be posted).

They are also putting up a Christmas tree and asked participating artists to create a unique ornament to hang on the tree.  I thought long and hard, and decided a Pine Cone Squirrel Ornament with Dalmore Scotch Whisky would be perfect.

After creating my creature with a pine cone, puff balls, pipe cleaner and a glue gun, I decided he needed to be carrying something a bit better than just a nut.

So who else has package of miniature whiskies hanging around?

I decided to place the Dalmore Scotch Whisky instead of the Bladnoch or the Glengoyne
