Classic Images, including many from the collection of Martin Lawrence Galleries, inspire jeweled collectibles as the Met celebrates its 150th Anniversary


— Erté

NEW YORK CITY, NY, 10162, January 20, 2020 / — The worlds of jewelry and fine art often overlap and complement each other. And that is exactly the case with Erté (birth name Romaine di Tirtoff), the father of Art Deco, whose long and celebrated career included accoladed turns as both a set and fashion designer.

Today, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, perhaps the most prestigious fine art museum in the world, announced that it will be offering a collection of Erté inspired jewelry for sale in its gift shop.

The Met first embraced Erté back in 1967, when it acquired an extraordinary total of 170 works, which it has proudly held ever since as an important part of its permanent collection. This newest group of Erté inspired collectibles will be available at The Met Store and online starting January 21, 2020, comprised of jewelry, scarves, home goods, stationery, handbags, and accessories.

This is not the first time the Met has recognized Erté. The Museum hosted an exhibition of his works in 1968 upon acquisition, and again a couple of years ago. In addition, Erté was honored at the Hermitage, in the artist’s hometown of St Petersburg, Russia, with a grand exhibition two years ago. Martin Lawrence lent and donated extensively to that glorious event.

Among the pieces included in the Met’s jewelry collection are a statement necklace and drop earrings inspired by an Erté original openwork fan design for Zizi Jeanmaire, a French ballet dancer who was also the artist’s great friend. Also, of note, in the jewelry suite is an 18k gold-plated pin inspired by the artist's costume design created for the opening curtain of the 1927 New York show Manhattan Mary.

The iconic flapper's dress is a cobweb of black beads and revealing red silk, accented with a spider motif. The limited-edition serigraph (650) is available from Martin Lawrence Galleries is stamped with the Erté estate's approved signature and framed in archival materials.

Other key highlights, in the collection, are a fully beaded clutch and 100% silk scarf, both inspired by the artist's Egyptian Art Deco work, "The Nile.", inspired by a hand-signed serigraph from the collection of Martin Lawrence Galleries.

Chalk & Vermilion Fine Arts, MLG’s parent company, began publishing Erté’s limited edition graphics in 1982. The printing methods utilized a bar set and remain an industry standard for superior serigraph printmaking. The combination of industrial foil stamping, to produce metallic effects, and artist-embossed heavy metal plates achieved an artistic level that has never been matched or surpassed.

In addition to the Met's collections, Erté’s works can be found in the collections of several well-known museums, including the Louvre, Museum of Art, the Victoria and Albert Museum, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).

About Martin Lawrence Galleries:
Martin Lawrence Galleries has proudly presented over 1600 exhibitions and private auctions in the past decades and enjoys the distinction of having loaned 250 artworks by 16 different artists to 32 world-renowned museums and public institutions all over the globe. Most recently this includes Erté's L'Arc En Ciel to the Hermitage Museum for their celebratory retrospective-Erté: Master of Art Deco; Magritte's Les Grands Rendezvous to Centre Pompidou's René Magritte La Trahison Des Images: Muniz's Guernica to the High Museum of Art's major Muniz retrospective; Warhol's Little Electric Chairs, 1964 to Musee d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris's Warhol Unlimited exhibition and David Hockney's Outpost Drive to the Tate Britain/Centre Pompidou/Metropolitan Museum of Art's most extensive retrospective of Hockney's work to date.

Curator Heinz Playner presents art of Jeannette Canale

AUSTRIA, January 20, 2020 / — Visitors of the vernissage of the exhibition "Art trip from Picasso to the present day", organized by MAMAG Modern Art Museum and MOCAMAG Museum in castle Hubertendorf, showed great interest.

In addition to the works of Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali, Mel Ramos, the works of art by contemporary artists can also be seen.

Well-known artists were present in person on January 18. Artist Monica Jimeno, who was born in Spain like Picasso, showed her expressive works of art from the series "my trip from impressionism to modernism". Jackson Pollock, Andy Warhol but also Henri Matisse influenced Monica Jimeno in her art. In Spain, some celebrities like footballer Alvaro Negredo, Roberto Soldado or actor Sebastian Rulli have portraits painted by Monica Jimeno. Now her works can also be seen in Austria in the exhibition of the MAMAG Modern Art Museum.

The well-known pop artist Tanja Playner also spoke about her works and the topics that are currently on her mind.
"I am shaken by the circumstances in Australia. It has moved me to say a few words as an artist in the form of a work of art. It is important to keep a balance between human activities and nature. We are all children of this planet, whether Animals or people. That's why I painted two mothers: a pregnant woman and a koala with her baby. The title of the artwork is "Mothers and children of this planet". Tanja Playner is also very intensely concerned with social media. "The Theme Hate in the Network affects a lot today. With my new work of art "World Communication" I am trying to point out to people that it is important to convert the negative into the positive on the net and to spread love instead of hate. "- says Tanja Playner. Consumer products also came into play again in the new works by Tanja Playner. The native Russian serves caviar as a delicacy of life in an artwork: "For me, every egg in the caviar is an experience, an feeling, a moment of life. This also influences the taste, in this sense also the attitude towards life. If we store a lot of positive moments in ourselves, it will taste like caviar and if we only see the negative, it will just be disgusting. It is the same in life "- says the pop art artist.

In addition to Banksy, Tanja Playner is one of the few living artists who have shown their art at the Musee du Louvre Paris and who were present with their performance during the La Biennale in Venezia 2019. Her works of art have been shown alongside numerous exhibitions in Miami, New York, Los Angeles, Oxford, Dubai and Tokyo at the Biennale in Cannes and Basel. Ernst Piech also owns art by Tanja Playner and dedicated a large solo exhibition in his museum in 2016.

For the first time in Austria are works of art by Colombian-born and Australia lived artist Sergio Arcos, such as Armen Sarvazyan from the USA, Jeannette Canale from Chile, Sinikka Elfving from Norway, Yitzhak Weissman from Israel. The exhibition also features sculptures by the artist Pari Ravan, who was born in Iran and lives in southern France.

BARRINGTON, ILLINOIS, UNITED STATES, January 20, 2020 / — Each year about 55% of the children arrested on prostitution charges are African-American. Human Trafficking is an issue that affects everyone, but primarily minorities. Rahab's Daughters, a non-profit, is focused on rescuing, rehabilitating, and reintegrating human trafficking victims back into society. Currently, about 40% of Rahab's Daughter's rescues in the rehabilitation program are African-American.

Part of Rahab's Daughter's mission is to bring awareness to the issue of human trafficking. Human Trafficking is a global issue. However, according to Polaris (who operates the National Human Trafficking Hotline number), over 10,000 cases were called in. Those calls involved over 23,000 potential human trafficking victims.

This month is National Human Trafficking Awareness Month. At the end of the month, Rahab's Daughters will be taking a team of 17 volunteers to Orlando, FL. and Miami, FL. to rescue over 150 victims of human trafficking. They will also have over 200 volunteers from partner organizations like the Convergence Resource Center and the Village of Bartlett Church running call centers to support the work in the field.

Sharmila (Sam) Wijeyakumar chairwoman of the board of Rahab’s Daughters says “I can’t wait to meet up with the interfaith coalition team in Miami so we can really make a dent over the coming weeks.

New Indie Documentary Serves The Real Scoop On Texas Mexican Food.

Film crew taping visual artist, Celeste De Luna, with author Adán Medrano in a scene from new indie documentary, "Texas Mexican Food Stories."

Film crew taping visual artist, Celeste De Luna, in Harlingen, Texas, with author Adán Medrano in a scene from new indie documentary, “Texas Mexican Food Stories.”

Rosalia Vargas demonstrates using a metate, ancient mortar. She is a member of the Tap Pilam, Native American community.

“Texas Mexican Food Stories” shoot in San Antonio, Texas. Rosalia Vargas demonstrates how to use the metate, a traditional mortar. She is a member of the Tap Pilam, Native American community.

Texas Mexican food is not from across the border. New Latinx-produced documentary showcases indigenous Mexican American women cooking Native food.

What you eat tells who you are”

— Adán Medrano

HOUSTON, TEXAS , USA, January 20, 2020 / — "Texas Mexican Food Stories" is a 75-minute documentary feature film that was shot totally in Texas and is in the final editing stage. "It's not a cooking show," says Adán Medrano, executive producer and author of two books about the history and the recipes of indigenous Texas Mexican cooking. "It's a road movie of discovery," Medrano continues, saying that the major voices in the film are of Mexican American women home cooks and restaurateurs. He says that they've been the leaders in developing and sustaining culinary traditions.

The producer of the documentary feature is Virginia Díaz, a Houston-based filmmaker who is originally from San Antonio and who grew up with this food. With location manager credits in feature films like "Selena" and "Rushmore," Díaz brings a strong vision to the production. She explains that the role of women has been erased from textbooks, newspapers, magazines and media in general. However, history tells us that "comida casera," home cooking of Mexican American women, holds the culinary tradition that begins 15,000 years ago when indigenous people first stepped on Texas soil, she says.

Although the film is under wraps during this final editing phase, Medrano will screen a five-minute sneak preview at the Texas Historical Commission's annual conference in Austin on January 29. Medrano is the opening night keynote speaker at the conference. "Our story is a universal story," says Medrano, explaining that it's all about the idea that "what you eat tells who you are."

The director of the film is Anibal Capoano from Uruguay whose most recent documentary, "Caballitos De Lata/Tin Horses," premiered in Houston four years ago. The production team is a Texas-Latin America collaboration. Capoano says that the Texas Mexican food story is one that resonates with indigenous communities across the Latin American continent. The director of photography is award-winning cinematographer, Gabriel Bendahan, also from Uruguay.

The production team shot 22 hours of footage in Texas cities including Houston, San Antonio, Corpus Christi, Harlingen, McAllen and aboard a small boat on the waters of the Rio Grande.

Díaz says that the film engages cooks, scholars, artists and activists as each tells how food shapes who they are. Foregrounding the leadership of Mexican American women, the scenes of cooking, baking, singing, feasting and barbecuing, all show that food is key in the formation of identity and the strengthening of community.

The film has received production funds from The Idea Fund, a program of The Andy Warhol Foundation for Visual Arts, and from the National Association of Latino Arts and Cultures (NALAC).

A film "Go Fund Me" campaign has been created to bring in wide grassroots support for the final edit and for distribution directly to universities, colleges and community centers.

Jay Bansal Partners with Ashford Communities to Bring Affordable Multi-Family Properties to Phoenix

Jay Ankur Bansal

PHOENIX, AZ, UNITED STATES, January 20, 2020 / — Local Phoenix Businessman, Jay Ankur Bansal, has made a name for himself over the past few years. This former attorney has an impressive business portfolio that includes a medical-legal funding business, owning gas station convenience stores, medical software companies, and hotel and apartment projects.

Since he already had an extensive real estate portfolio, Jay Ankur Bansal decided to take it to the next level. Jay Ankur Bansal partnered with Ashford Communities. Ashford Communities has been a leader in multi-family properties for many years. With this partnership, both parties will work together to work on locating apartment properties in the Phoenix area. The goal is to bring quality property management to affordable multi-family properties in Phoenix.

Aside from bringing affordable multi-family properties to Phoenix, Jay A. Bansal and Ashford Communities have plans to make it a multi-city project. Ashford Communities just announced their plans to expand to Austin. “They just closed on the purchase of two complexes in Austin, Texas and I am proud to be an investor in both locations,” Jay said.

Longbranch, one of the complexes they acquired, is located in North Austin in the North Lamar area. The Longbranch property offers 104 units that expand over seven apartment buildings. Each unit has an average square footage of 673. The amenities include a large deck with furniture and grills, swimming pool, sports court, spa, fitness room, playground, picnic area, dog park, and dog washing station.

Creekwood Village is the other property purchased by Ashford Communities, and it’s located in Northeast Austin in the Coronado Hills neighborhood. The Creekwood Village complex offers 96 units in 6 apartment buildings, with the average unit size of 703 square feet. Some of the amenities include swimming pool, spa, fitness center, large deck with furniture and electric smokers, dog area, and gated access.

It’s safe to assume this partnership will bring a lot of benefits for the Phoenix and Austin communities. Ashford communities stand for pride, connection, care, and belonging, which resonated with Jay’s philosophy.

Jay Ankur Bansal grew up in the Phoenix area and is an active member of the community, donating and sitting on the board of worthy organizations. He admits he couldn’t do it all without his wife of 25 years, Rajani Bansal.

Darcy Bergen Explains A Few Things People Don’t Know About Social Security

PEORIA, AZ, UNITED STATES, January 20, 2020 / — As the owner of Bergen Financial Group, Darcy Bergen has been a financial advisor for over twenty years. Darcy Bergen advises his clients on retirement and other financial concerns. Although many of his clients are those approaching retirement age, he likes to offer advice for Americans in all stages of life. For starters, there are a lot of misconceptions regarding Social Security benefits Darcy Bergen wants Americans to be aware of.

People Can Use Social Security for More Than Retirement Benefits
Darcy Bergen explains a lot of people don’t know that they can take advantage of social security benefits for more than just retirement benefits. Social Security beneficiaries can use them as disability benefits, surviving spouses, Medicare, and benefits to the family of deceased workers.

Learn About the Payout Rules
Before people decide to take out their Social Security benefits, they should know about the payout schedule. For example, if they request their February payment, they will receive it in March. Darcy Bergen advises his clients to keep this in mind if they’re relying on the payments.

The Social Security Administration Reviews Benefits
The SSA administration performs a yearly review of all the benefits and calculates the amount beneficiaries receive as needed. The longer the beneficiary works, the more money they will receive.

Social Security Beneficiaries Can Work While Receiving Benefits
According to Darcy Bergen, many people are not aware they can receive social security benefits and keep working. Many people choose to continue working while they receive their Social Security benefits until they reach full retirement age. While they continue to receive the benefits and work, the SSA will reduce their benefits if their earnings reach the limit. For example, they could be reduced $1 for every $2 they earn. Darcy Bergen mentions once the person reaches full retirement age, they will receive the total amount even if they keep working and go over the limit.

The Benefits are Based on 35 Years of Earned Income
To calculate the Social Security benefits, the SSA uses 35 years of income as a base. Before qualifying for the benefit, people should work for a minimum of forty quarters, or ten years. If a person goes through a period when they don’t earn any income, it could throw off their average. When someone hasn’t yet hit thirty-five years of work, Darcy Bergen recommends they work for a few more years to increase their potential benefits.

Beneficiaries Will Have to Pay Taxes
Darcy Bergen mentions a lot of people are not aware they have to pay taxes on their Social Security benefits. Those who will rely on their Social Security benefits as their sole form of income should be aware of this fact.
