25th ANNUAL LA ART SHOW BRINGS THE ENTIRE WORLD OF ART TO LOS ANGELES KICKING OFF THE CITY’S FIRST ART FAIR SEASON OF THE DECADE

The 25th Annual LA Art Show Is February 5-9, 2020

This February, the Los Angeles art scene will attract artists, galleries, and collectors from around the world with a series of high-profile art events. On February 5, the LA Art Show will celebrate its 25th anniversary, and as a longtime media partner, Cartwheel Art sends our congratulations out to everyone who has made the show such a success over the years.

Last year, LA Art Show producer Kim Martindale talked to Cartwheel about how the show started out with 12 or 14 dealers and a focus on 19th and early 20th century work. Over the years, it has grown tremendously, and it now bills itself as “the most comprehensive international contemporary art show in America.” However, that doesn’t mean it’s done growing.

“For 25 years, LA Art Show has been raising the profile of the LA art scene, as well as bringing more and more compelling art to our market,” says LA Art Show producer? Kim Martindale?. “I’m excited by the clear impact this has had on our city and looking forward to expanding the show even further.”

The M.C. Escher Experience

By M.C. Escher

Presented by Walker Fine Art

Exploring the intersection of art, mathematics, science and poetry, Escher’s work has fascinated and astounded generations of artists, architects, mathematicians, musicians and designers alike. Over 40 years, Walker Fine Art has assembled the largest collection of Escher works in the world, and will showcase the “rarest of the rare” at the 25th Annual LA Art Show. The M.C. Escher experience runs the span of his entire career, and will include rarely seen lithographs, wood cuts, engravings, and mezzotints, as well as the artist’s iconic custom furniture. Many of these will be shown in California for the first time ever. In addition to seeing the artist’s work up close, LA Art Show attendees will have the opportunity to become Escher. A special photo-booth will recreate his iconic sphere

self portrait with you in the reflection. 

This year, the show will premiere its European Pavilion, a new section that will feature more than a dozen contemporary European galleries, focusing on exhibitors and artists from Spain, Italy, and the UK, and including a special showcase of Catalan art from 1900 to the present. 

The 2020 LA Art Show will also include the third edition of the DIVERSEartLA ?showcase. Curated by ?Marisa Caichiolo, it will be a celebration of pride in LA’s cultural diversity. This special programming section of the fair is dedicated to exhibiting the institutions, artists, and non-profits from Southern California, around the Pacific Rim, and beyond. The LA Art Show is donating 20,000 square feet of exhibition space to the participating organizations. The 2020 lineup for ?DIVERSEartLA includes LACMA, The Broad?, ?La Neomudejar Museum from Madrid, MOLAA, Art AlLimite, ?LAArtAssociation?, the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center?, and many others. The work featured in the DIVERSEartLA showcase is not for sale.

“We are thrilled to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the LA Art Show with a rare yet magnificent event that will reflect LA’s vast natural spaces and cultural diversity,” says DIVERSEartLA curator ?Marisa Caichiolo?. “While the city’s communities reflect a wide variety of ethnic backgrounds, its environment reflects a richness of natural areas. Next year’s curatorial focus will be expanded to embrace and celebrate those art institutions and art collectors who support LA’s blossoming art community.”

At the time, Catriona worked locally in vintage shops on Camden high street and in the Stables market. This heavily influenced Amy from a stylistic point of view; her look began to reflect the girls she was spending time with, eventually becoming the signature-recognized silhouette associated with her.

Professionally, Catriona is a recruiter for the Music industry. In addition to her full time role, Catriona works closely with the Amy Winehouse Foundation on the ‘Amy’s Yard’ program whose aim is to support the personal development of disadvantaged young people through music.

She has over a decade of experience spanning music, TV, film and advertising with many high-profile clients – most notably Amy Winehouse who she worked with on all major appearances and performances from 2006 culminating in the creation of her bespoke final tour wardrobe in 2011.

Tired of the constant stream of negative press surrounding Amy, with so much focus on her demise and little on her many achievements, she set up the multi-platform project ‘Beyond Black’ in 2019 which celebrates Amy as a cultural icon. With a series of exhibitions running between 2020 and 2021 to mark the 10 years since her passing, she also spearheads other projects utilizing her and the estate’s private collections to continue Amy’s legacy and raise awareness for The Amy Winehouse Foundation.

Mandarette Chinese Café Kicks-Off It’s 35th Anniversary Celebration by Announcing 4 New Signature Fall Menu Items

Article By: Marcelle - Jan• 14•20

Mandarette Chinese Café
Kicks-Off It’s 35th Anniversary Celebration by
Announcing 4 New Signature Fall Menu Items

Hollywood, CA. —————- Mandarette Chinese Café has been serving up clean, fresh, delicious traditional Chinese Cuisine with a modern twist in West Hollywood for 35 years. To help ring in their 35th anniversary they are announcing new fall menu items. Best known for its strawberry shrimp, but Mandarette Chinese Café offers a mix of traditional and modern Chinese memorable dishes.

Owner Ken Yang has been a mainstay in this Beverly Grove neighborhood for 35 years; he has nurtured his customer base and understands this area well. He says, “My customers know exactly what they will be getting and they have been coming back for more for the last 35 years. They are locals, people driving by, walking by, and tourists all hearing the praises about the great Chinese delicacies that Mandarette Chinese Café claims its own.”

About Owner Ken Yang, and The Traditions of Mandarette Chinese Café:

My family’s culinary journey started from a little town, just north of Taipei, where my father started his traditional training in the kitchen at a young age of 13. After completing the traditional culinary training from his master, he worked at various establishments in Taipei. By the age of 25, my father was discovered by a Japanese Chinese restaurant owner and invited him to go to Japan and worked as the head chef of his kitchen.

When Phillip Chiang first opened Mandarette Chinese Cafe in September 1984, my father was the head chef and partner with him at the Mandarin in Beverly Hills. He helped created all the wonderful dishes at the Mandarette Chinese Cafe. The restaurant was later sold to their family in early 1990. Over the last 35 years, Mandarette Chinese Café remains a local favorite for gathering of all occasions. Their mission is always to provide the best fresh ingredients to their customers without overpowering with sauces. You can always taste the goodness in each bite.

4 New Fall Menu Items for Mandarette Chinese Café 35th Anniversary Celebration for Customers to Enjoy:

Three Cup Chicken, Beef, Or Squid; is a classic Taiwanese dish made three ingredients; sesame oil, soy sauce and rice wine. The chicken, beef or squid is cooked in the sauce until tender before the sauce is reduced to a glaze that coats the meat.

Braised Beef Noodle Soup is the symbolic Chinese comfort food. Found all throughout China and Taiwan, Beef is slow-cooked to perfection and the broth is rich with Chinese herbs and spices. Topped with fresh spinach and scallions, it is the ultimate meal for either lunch or dinner.

Sichuan Poached Fish Fillet is a dish originated from the Sichuan cuisine. Their approach is to make the fish fillet from fresh sole and cook it with Sichuan numbing pepper, chilly pod, vegetable oil, minced garlic and other spices. It offers a good combination of tender white meat fish, crispness of the bean sprouts, hot spicy flavor of chili pepper, and a touch of numbing sensation of Sichuan pepper. It excites all the senses in your taste buds.

Aromatic Fiery Shrimps is a traditional Sichuan style spicy shrimp with Sichuan Pepper and spices. Crispy shrimp stir fried with chili pod, Sichuan pepper, minced garlic, sliced ginger and scallion over sesame oil. For the shrimp love, it is so appetizing, scrumptious, and flavorful that you will be craving its taste after you have tried it.

Also expect to find classics including Won Ton Soup, Kung Pao Shrimp and Lemon Chicken. But then be surprised – and delighted – with this popular eatery’s special modern dishes, only found here at their Beverly Grove location. There’s the delicious Crispy Strawberry Shrimp Mandarette Chinese Café Special, quick-fried shrimp served with strawberries in a sweet and spicy sauce; or check out the Lobster Noodle Mandarette Chinese Cafe Special and you’ll find lobster tail drenched in garlic sauce and served on a bed of egg noodles, lots of bang for your buck! Indulge in Mandarette’s Chinese Cafe house-made ginger ale which will guarantee to quench your thirst and take away all of the spicy goodness.

Besides Mandarettte Chinese Café’s consistently serving excellent food, any food-restricted diets can be accommodated here. With delicious vegetarian, vegan, omnivore or gluten free choices, Mandarette Chinese Café has some thing for every foodie. There are numerous Chinese restaurants in Los Angeles, but Mandarette Chinese Café is way ahead of the pack, and distinguishes itself as modern eclectic Chinese food, that is always delectable and healthy.

Whether you’re a regular customer at Mandarette Chinese Café or you are new to this super dining experience, it’s time to come in and check out their new menu items, you will be so glad you did.

THE HOLLYWOOD MUSEUM’S REUNITES THE LADIES OF KNOTS LANDING JOAN VAN ARK * MICHELE LEE * DONNA MILLS FOR 40th ANNIVERSARY Saturday, January 18th, 2020 TIME: 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Article By: Marcelle - Jan• 13•20

 

THE HOLLYWOOD MUSEUM’S REUNITES
THE LADIES OF KNOTS LANDING
JOAN VAN ARK * MICHELE LEE * DONNA MILLS
FOR 40th ANNIVERSARY

WHAT: The Hollywood Museum’s first Lobby tribute of 2020, will reunite three remarkable leading ladies, Joan Van Ark, Michele Lee and Donna Mills, for the 40th anniversary of “Knots Landing,” unveiling costumes worn by the three series’ stars.

WHERE: The Hollywood Museum (located in the Historic Max Factor Building) 1660 N Highland Ave, Hwd CA (corner of Highland Ave and Hollywood Blvd)

WHO: Among those also attending include: Donnna Pescow (Saturday Night Fever/Angie), Anson Williams (Happy Days), Leeza Gibbons (Rose Parade Host), Lainie Kazan (My Big Fat Great Wedding), George Chakiris (West Side Story), Carolyn Hennesy (GH/Jesse/True Blood), Johnny Whitaker (Family Affair), Meredith Thomas (Disconnected), Lee Purcell (Valley Girl/Carol of the Bells), Don Most (Happy Days), Billy Van Zandt (The Hughleys/Yes, Dear), Teresa Ganzel (The Toy), Diana Lansleen (Y&R/Days of Our Lives), Kate Linder (Y&R), Connor Dean (9.1.1.), Jax Malcolm (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend), Todd Sherry (Life In Pieces/Parks & Recreation), Elaine Ballace (The Rich & the Ruthless), Erin Murphy (Bewitched), and more

MEDIA: “Knots Landing” was one of the quintessential prime time television soap operas, airing on CBS from December 27, 1979, to May 13, 1993. A spin-off of “Dallas,” (although created prior) it was set in a fictitious coastal suburb of Los Angeles and initially centered on the lives of four married couples living on the cul-de-sac, Seaview Circle. By the time of its conclusion, storylines had included rape, murder, kidnapping, assassinations, drug smuggling, corporate intrigue, and criminal investigations; and it had became onne of the longest-running primetime dramas on U.S. television as was “Gunsmoke” and “Bonanza.”

“Knots Landing” was created by David Jacobs in conjunction with producer Michael Filerman. While it’s a spin-off of “Dallas,” the concept predates that series, and was rebuffed by CBS. Jacobs then created “Dallas,” which the network accepted and premiered in 1978. After “Dallas” became a hit, Jacobs was then able to adapt “Knots Landing” as a spin-off series by way of incorporating characters introduced in the parent series.

Though not as popular in the ratings, at first, as “Dallas,” “Knots Landing” eventually outlasted it and garnered much critical acclaim. This can be attributed, in part, to more dramatic storylines and the gradual inclusion of newer characters to interact with the original cast. By the 1988-89 season, “Knots Landing” was ahead of “Dallas” in the ratings.

In 1997, much of the cast reunited for a two-part mini-series entitled “Knots Landing: Back to the Cul-de-Sac.” In 2005, they reunited again for the non-fiction special “Knots Landing Reunion: Together Again,” in which the cast reminisced about their time on the show.

SPECIAL GUESTS:

DONNA MILLS: After spending a year studying drama at the University of Illinois, she made her way to New York, where she landed an understudy role in Woody Allen’s play, “Don’t Drink the Water”. Her first television role was on the daytime soap opera The Secret Storm (1954) in 1966. The next year, she made her film debut in the hard-hitting drama The Incident (1967). In 1971, she co-starred in the popular thriller Play Misty for Me (1971). Donna made guest appearances on top-rated series throughout the seventies and carved a niche for herself in made-for-TV movies. In 1980, she joined the cast of the primetime soap Knots Landing (1979) as wicked Abby Fairgate Cunningham Ewing Sumner. After a successful nine-year tenure, Donna left the show to pursue other projects. She continued to headline a range of television films, several of which she produced, often highlighting important social issues. These including Outback Bound (1988), The World’s Oldest Living Bridesmaid (1990), Runaway Father (1991), In My Daughter’s Name (1992) and My Name Is Kate (1994). More recently, she’s had a recurring role on General Hospital, winning an Emmy for her role.

MICHELE LEE: Shortly after she appeared on Broadway, she began making a number of guest appearances on television, most notably The Danny Kaye Show and her career was off to a firing start. She made her movie debut with the film How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, followed by The Comic, co-starring Dick Van Dyke and starring as Secretary Carole Bennett in the best movie of 1970, The Love Bug. The producers of “Knots Landing” introduced Lee to the series and became #1 for the next 13 seasons. By 1982, she was nominated for one Emmy Award and had won the Soap Opera Digest Award, three times. She starred opposite Valerie Harper in the Broadway play “Tale of the Allergist’s Wife” in New York and returned to the big screen to play Ben Stiller’s mother in Along Came Polly.

JOAN VAN ARK: Van Ark began her professional career at the Minneapolis Guthrie Theater in Moliere’s “The Miser”, opposite Hume Cronyn and Zoe Caldwell. That was followed by “Death of a Salesman” at the Guthrie with both Cronyn and Jessica Tandy. After a season at the Arena Stage in Washington, D.C., Joan was cast in the national touring company of “Barefoot in the Park”, directed by Mike Nichols, recreating the role in London and later on Broadway. She earned a Tony nomination for her performance in “The School for Wives” and won the Theater World Award for “The Rules of the Game”. She is perhaps best known for her role as “Valene Ewing” beginning on Dallas (1978) and then on the spin-off series, Knots Landing (1979). During the 13 seasons as “Val”, she earned six nominations and two Soap Opera Digest Awards for Best Actress and continues to work regularly and is married to her high school sweetheart, John Marshall, a former award-winning TV newsman, who now heads an on-line news service.
