— Philip Weiss

LYNBROOK, NY, UNITED STATES, September 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — A beautiful oil on canvas portrait of a Japanese girl by David Burliuk (Ukrainian/American, 1882-1967) – part of a fresh-to-market, never before offered collection of works by Burliuk – sold for $39,100 to take top lot honors in an online Estate & Art Auction held September 16th by Weiss Auctions. Overall, the 550-lot sale grossed nearly $500,000.

The portrait painting, measuring 13 inches by 17 inches on a relined canvas, was signed lower left by Burliuk and dated (“1922”). That painting, as well as some others, came from the estate of Ella Jaffe Freidus, a renowned art dealer who lived in Lloyd Harbor, N.Y. She was a longtime friend of Burliuk’s. The nephew of the consignor was, at one time, Ms. Freidus’s caretaker.

“There were many other lots that sold in the thousands of dollars, but the Burliuk portrait took the top prize,” said Philip Weiss of Weiss Auctions. “We had over two thousand registered bidders on LiveAuctioneers.com and Invaluable.com, and over one thousand of them were viewing live at the same time. It was probably the strongest bidding I have seen in years.”

The catalog was highlighted by 40 lots of important Wedgwood pieces (including tri-color pieces, Egyptian series, Sphinx candlesticks and Basalt statues), high-end Nippon, original oil paintings by important listed artists plus works on paper, Lalique lamps, Russian icons, Theo Faberge eggs, Murano and art glass, jewelry (including gold, silver, platinum and diamonds).

Following are additional highlights from the auction. All prices include the buyer’s premium.

A 14kt gold handmade custom flute, engraved by the maker, “Verne Q. Powell, Boston”, dated to 1951 or 1952, played a sweet tune for $17,825. The flute, serial #1299 engraved on the body, featured non-gold valves and the original fitted leather case with a name plate on the cover.

A circa 1900 Seth Thomas Regulator No. 60 wall clock, in a walnut case with an early finish, chimed on time for $17,250. The all original clock featured an 8-inch brass pendulum, beat scale, weight, key, hands and face having a 14-inch diameter painted metal dial with Roman numerals.

An oil on canvas painting by French artist Michel Delacroix (b. 1933), titled Le Chariot Bleu, signed lower left and signed and titled on verso, went for $15,600. The canvas measured 28 ¾ inches by 23 ¾ inches. Delacroix paints rich, bustling, Parisian street scenes in the “naif” style.

A Parisian scene depicting the village of Montmartre by Hiro Yamagata (Japanese/American, b. 1948), titled simply Montmartre, 25 ¾ inches by 21 ¼ inches (sight, less frame), made $12,000. The lovely oil on canvas rendering was signed, titled and dated (“76”) lower left bottom edge.

A gorgeous oil on canvas painting signed by the Danish/American artist Johann Berthelsen (1883-1972), depicting Riverside Church and Grant’s Tomb, reached a respectable $9,200, despite some areas of craquelure. The work was housed in a 37 ½ inch by 32 ½ inch frame.

A scarce Wedgwood Black Jasperware bolted vase, 12 inches tall, showing rams’ heads in high relief and exhibiting no flaws at all, finished at $3,000. Also, a Nippon blown out humidor with a nautical motif, showing a fisherman in a boat, 8 inches tall, found a new owner for $2,040.

A large oil on canvas by the Russian-born French artist Constantin Kluge (1912-2003), titled Le Café Du Coin, signed lower right and housed in a 44 inch by 37 inch frame, realized $5,100; and an oil on canvas by Maxime Camille Louis Maufra (French, 1861-1918), titled Windmills, 25 inches by 21 inches (sight, less frame), pulled from a Southampton, N.Y. estate, rose to $6,900.

An untitled lithograph in colors by the renowned Spanish artist Joan Miro (1893-1983), pencil signed lower right and pencil numbered (“5/300”) lower left, with an image size of 19 ½ inches by 25 ½ inches, brought $4,680. Also, an oil on canvas painting by Benjamin Osro Eggleston (American, 1867-1937), titled The Marble Bench, in a spectacular frame, gaveled for $3,840.

The most prestigious award program in the visual arts industry reunites artists from different backgrounds to bring peace awareness.

— Viviana Puello

That is where the vision and inspiration for ArtTour International was born. As the platform expanded and grew, Viviana added the ATIM Top 60 Masters Awards and special Issue Magazine to bring the recognition that these top artists deserve.

“All of my life, I have been an advocate for the arts.”, Puello shared. As her company and focus has grown, she has taken her marketing expertise to help artists turn their passion to profit. Her workshop, Debunking the Myth of Starving Artist, equips artists to become art entrepreneurs. As a successful entrepreneur herself, she shares the principles and goals on her award-winning show that is featured on NYC media. It was awarded the Public Media Awards of Excellence because of its impact in 2018 and 2019.

Today, ArtTour International is a revolutionary multimedia platform that promotes artists worldwide with an audience of over 2 million people in 205 countries. It also publishes a printed magazine that features artists who deserve the spotlight. Today, it has grown its readership to 10 million and is finally furthering its reach through the ArtTour International Show. The show airs every Thursday at 5:30 in the afternoon on Spectrum 1993. The show received the Public Media Awards of Excellence for two years in a row in 2018 and 2019.

With the ArtTour International Top 60 Masters Awards, Puello has created a foundation of success for her artists to thrive in. The ceremony reunites artists from all over the globe in one setting to recognize their careers, their activist works, and to promote global peace awareness through intercultural exchange. It highlights giving artists the space they deserve without holding themselves back.

The 2021 issue

Premiering October 14th: Jessica Ross Films Jul-TV Docuseries Wes Iseli's Magiclife in Virginia From Los Angeles

Due to COVID, the entire episode was done with Zoom

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, September 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — On October 14th, Jessica Ross stars in Episode 5 of the Jul-TV docuseries Wes Iseli's Magiclife titled "Getting Press". Jessica is an actress and publicist and has helped Wes Iseli garner interviews on TV shows, newspapers, magazines, and podcasts. Working with the Iseli Family virtually for the past three years, she began pitching "Wes Iseli's Magiclife" to various networks in February. The original plan was to fly her out to Columbia, Virginia to meet Wes Iseli and his family for the first time as well as go sightseeing in the surrounding areas.

Unfortunately, life doesn't always go as planned. Practically overnight the coronavirus arrived, disrupting the world in unforeseen ways. As an actress and publicist, Jessica is used to being creative and thinking outside the box. This time, she was faced with a challenge like no other. How do you film a meeting in Virginia when you are over 3,000 miles away in Los Angeles and we are in the midst of a pandemic?

"If you asked me a year ago, I would have laughed at the idea of shooting a TV show on Zoom. Plus, I was looking forward to meeting the Iseli's in person and seeing Virginia for the first time. Despite the obstacles, I was determined to make it work. In one part, we have a virtual toast with a glass of wine. My goal was to have the viewers feel like I was really there with them", says Jessica.

Episode 5 of Wes Iseli's Magiclife with Jessica Ross premieres October 14th on Jul-TV at https://www.jultvnetwork.com/.

Jason Freskos Explains How Yoga Can Assist One Spiritually

Jason Freskos

STINSON BEACH, CA, UNITED STATES, September 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — ​​​​​​​Too often, people tell Jason Freskos that they don't have time to get into yoga or that yoga does not fit into their business-oriented life. Or that they feel that yoga is not a serious-enough practice for them. To this, Jason Freskos chuckles and tries to explain not only how well yoga can fit into the businessperson's life, but also how adding it can enhance one spiritually.

Here in San Francisco, the art and practice of yoga is most often tied to athleticism and getting fit — and of course, this is an important benefit of yoga. But it is not the only benefit. For Jason Freskos, the true beauty of yoga is not what it does to your body but rather what it can offer for your soul. For Jason Freskos and the many people who go to him for yoga, the answer to what makes yoga so unique and so special is its connection to spirituality.

Jason Freskos is a registered yoga teacher and has helped hundreds of practitioners find greater ease and a better spiritual connection via the art. But to understand how one first must first understand spirituality. In this context, spiritual means transcending beyond those dimensions in which we exist. It also means improving one's mental and emotional condition so as they can connect with others and the world around themselves in a deeper, more empathetic manner.

What it doesn't mean is a religion, or at least not in the way in which religion is traditionally taught in the West. When you roll out the yoga mat and follow a yogi in a structured class, you do not have to ascribe to any specific faith or believe in a certain brand of worship. In fact, one of the things that first drew Jason Freskos to yoga was how beautifully yoga united people of varying faiths and cultural backgrounds. You can be an avowed atheist who puts no stock in their cultural background and still find that regular application of yoga principles and techniques can improve yourself spiritually.

Arguably the important way the practice of yoga assists one spiritually is by cultivating awareness. As Jason Freskos explains, today's world is so busy and we have so many things to do, that our minds become chaotic and we become so entrenched with things that we must do, racing from one place to the next. While this may be good in the short-term, this type of constant being on can lead us astray and hurt us. Jason Freskos notes that he's seen quite a few brilliant people stumble in their careers due to over-exertion.

What yoga can teach us is how to take a time out and how to sit in silence with oneself. Sitting in silence while meditating on a pose enables us to become more aware of ourselves, what we're experiencing, and how to accept the current, the present moment. It's in these moments, Jason Freskos explains, that we can find the path forward to greater spirituality and a sense of self-worth.

Play & Pandemic at M2Moms® – How Brands Can Help Families Now

marketing to moms

Amy Henry, President, Flashlight Insights

New survey reveals family uncertainty and brand opportunity.

The survey showed how brands can go from theory to practice, with insights from the lived experience of moms and dads, and their kids. It revealed a strategy, a rules for the road ahead for brands.”

— Amy Henry, President, Flashlight Insights

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, September 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — As this year’s surreal summer was underway, M2Moms® contributor Amy Henry, a recognized youth and family expert and Founder & President of FlashLight Insights, fielded a FlashPulse among parents from across the U.S. According to Henry, “We heard loudly and clearly that the return to play makes parents feel like a new bike rider…Wobbly. Worried they might fall. Concerned about injury. Watching their feet instead of the road ahead. The research also showed how brands can go from theory to practice, with insights from the lived experience of moms and dads, and their kids. It revealed a strategy, a rules for the road ahead for brands, companies and organizations who are on this ride with families.”

According to McCann, Founder and Producer of M2Moms®,” This new survey is the basis of the second part of Amy’s M2Moms® series called The Training Wheel Strategy – How Brands Can Support a Return to Play. M2Moms® – The Constant Conference is a 24/7 online executive learning forum dedicated to helping marketers build better business with moms and families.”

Henry continued, “The survey showed just as parents do when their child is in bike ‘training’ stages … brands and organizations should be watching carefully…not just to monitor safety but perhaps as importantly, to watch for growth. Because, as important as the confidence kids get from training wheels is the confidence that they get when they’re removed. The timing is critical – wait too long and kids depend on them. Remove too early and kids might lose their groove. Conversations with kids and families matter more than ever. And nimble ones – with both speed and an appreciation for nuance – have never been more critical. Plus, with school starting, remember to help parents infuse some play into the rituals they’re creating for their kids’ day-to-day lives, whether that’s at home, in school in a new way, or something in between.”

McCann added, “Amy’s two part presentation is available on M2Moms®. Other new content includes: How-to advice on avoiding the “7 Mistakes Brands Make When Marketing to Moms”; “Black Lives Matter At Home Too ”; surprising research results on “Women Gamers”; the latest news, innovations and trends on parents & families; an unmatched compendium of mom-marketing-focused data; presentations; best in business reads on Madd About Books; and to help Members work out those WFH kinks an ongoing series of “Moves that Stretch” with Stephanie Bittner, founder of Bittner Movement.”

TAMPA, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, September 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Christopher King, who was appointed as President of United for Human Rights’ Florida Chapter in November of 2019, was honored as the Bay News 9’s Everyday Hero on Monday morning, the 25th of September, for his dedication towards ending human trafficking and helping youth in the Tampa Bay area.

In King’s acceptance speech at United for Human Rights’ Volunteer Recognition Awards Banquet in November he said: “With a united effort, the goal of eradicating social injustices, human trafficking and more can be accomplished here in our own backyard.”

Since November, Chris King has tirelessly worked at doing just that. He has delivered seminars to students at schools across Pasco and Hillsborough counties; he’s also taken the entire Pinellas County Job Corps student body through the Youth for Human Rights curriculum; and just last month he delivered civil rights training to 400 Raymond James staff.

After an anonymous citizen of Tampa Bay submitted King for the nomination, Bay News 9 contacted him for an interview and surprised him with the award.

The interview featured King’s work as the Founder of The Gentlemen’s Course, a co-ed, non-profit organization that teaches youth proper etiquette and attire, as well as anti-human trafficking efforts and signs of human trafficking to look out for. The feature also covered his involvement with United for Human Rights as its Florida chapter President, leading the movement of human rights education for all of the Tampa Bay area.
