East Side coffee shop scores a win through art amid pandemic | Entertainment

The couple moved to Madison from New York City, where he had a shop of the same name in Brooklyn from 1999 until 2011.

Just before their first child was born, he said, they were driving around, looking for a bigger place to live that they could afford.

“I had been in New York for 26 years and she said, ‘What about Madison?’ And I thought, ‘Why not?’ “

His wife grew up in Oshkosh and he’s originally from Minneapolis. In Madison, they and their sons, 12 and 11, are closer to family.

“So, we came out here for kid-raising purposes,” said Downey, his arms tattooed, and dressed this day in overall shorts with one strap hanging free, five thick gold chains around his neck.

White House Sets Ethics Plan for Sales of Hunter Biden’s Art

WASHINGTON — The White House has helped develop a system for Hunter Biden to sell pieces of his art without him, or anyone in the administration, knowing who bought them, the latest effort to respond to criticism over how President Biden’s son makes his money.

Under the arrangement, a New York City art dealer would sell the paintings, which the dealer has said he is pricing at between $75,000 and $500,000, while keeping secret all information about the sales, according to a person familiar with the plan.

The gallerist, Georges Bergès, has agreed to not share any information about the buyers or prices of Hunter Biden’s work with anyone. Mr. Bergès has also agreed to reject any offer that appears suspicious, such as one well beyond the asking price, the person familiar with the matter said.

Hunter Biden has been under scrutiny for years over business dealings around the world

Aspen’s Anderson Ranch Arts Center to honor Simone Leigh

The Anderson Ranch Arts Center shifted from hanging masterpieces to making PPE at the beginning of the pandemic.

But we’re told the center — chaired by Sue Hostetler Wrigley, former editor-in-chief of Art Basel magazine — has returned to its original mission of welcoming art students.

Next week, it’ll celebrate its 2021 International Artist Honoree Simone Leigh — who will represent the US at next year’s Venice Biennale — with a special appearance by feminist activist art group The Guerrilla Girls.

We hear that former MOCA head Helen Molesworth, the Brooklyn Museum’s Anne Pasternak, art collectors Eleanor and Domenico De Sole, billionaire Jim Crown and his wife Paula, Sarah Arison, Jamie Tisch, Lisa and Jimmy Cohen, and nightlife impresario Omar Hernandez are all expected to be in attendance at an event to welcome her.

Sessions will include lectures and talks, in-studio art-making, a dinner and a movie.

Nature-inspired Garden Art Fair returns to Reiman Gardens

The Garden Art Fair is back at Reiman Gardens this year for its 18th season after being canceled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The event, which features nature-inspired art from more than 50 artists, will be held Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“We have a lot of new artists this year,” Beth Wessel-Kroeschell, events coordinator for Reiman, said. “We have some that are returning, but we certainly have a lot of new ones that we’ve never had before. So that’s very exciting.”

She said she was concerned that, although there’s been a groundswell of new artists registering, organizers haven’t heard from some of the loyal artists who have been there in the past.

“I think the pandemic may have had an impact on them not being able to sell their artwork at these kinds of shows for a whole year,” Wessel-Kroeschell said. “The newer artists may

The Almanor Art Show is on – save the dates

The Almanor Arts Show celebrates its 51st anniversary on Saturday July 31st and Sunday Aug. 1st on the Collins Pine Lawn in Chester CA. “We are overjoyed to be offering this fantastic event again after a break in 2020 because of covid shutdowns,” said Plumas Arts Events Coordinator Jennifer Ready.

The show was first hosted on the shores of Lake Almanor in 1969 by a group of Almanor Basin resident artists. The Almanor Arts Show was “gifted” to Plumas Arts in the early 1980s when the artists that had managed the show since 1969 felt it was appropriate to transfer show management to the county’s new local art agency which had been established in 1981.

When the Almanor Art Show outgrew its original home on the lakeshore, it was hosted for two years adjacent to the Collins Pine Lawn. In 1988, with the support of the Collins Pine management,

Hunter Biden’s art deal will keep buyers’ identities a secret

When Hunter Biden’s art is sold later this year, the public won’t know who’s buying his paintings —and neither will Hunter Biden, the White House, or his father, President Biden.  According to a White House official, any buyer’s identity will be kept secret by the gallery owner.    

However, buyers may choose to make their identities known. 

Another source familiar with the sales arrangement told CBS News that the New York gallery owner who is showing Hunter Biden’s paintings, George Bergès, will have the ability to reject offers that raise alarms.  Potential conflicts could include offers above the asking price from buyers seeking political influence with the Biden family. 

Bergès estimates that Hunter Biden’s work could fetch between $75,000 and $500,000 per painting, according to a spokesperson for the gallery.  According to Artnet, Biden has no formal artistic training and has only begun working as an artist full time in
