It seems that I may have summed up the subject of this post already, but we do have some wonderful news! Sarah Hollander, who recently completed the incredibly charming “Twelve Days of Christmas in Washington DC” (published by Sterling) has learned that her book has made the Publisher Weekly’s Children Bookshelf!
She has put a lot of energy into arranging readings and signings, and it seems her marketing efforts have paid off. Congratulations, Sarah!
You can read more on the author, Candice Ransom’s, blog.
And tomorrow evening, December 15th, this new documentary by filmmaker Perry Miller Adato will finally air on PBS! Please check your local listings for exact times.
While we are very optimistic and hope to see plenty of Rick, we have heard through the grapevine that, while at dinner with NoÃ«l and her husband last spring, the pair revealed that they had seen a rough cut of the film – and it appears that Rick’s scenes may have been cut. The talented artist has a great sense of humor about it, however, and announced, “That’s show biz!”
There is only one way to really know, however. Be sure to tune in!
Know a dog that needs training? Well, have we got the gal for you! Vicki’s daughter, Annie, has recently started a new business in which she teaches positive behavioral dog training, and she’s thanking folks for their generous referrals by handing out signed, limited edition bottles of Tuthilltown Spirits’s Corn Whiskey (of which Vicki’s husband, Ralph, is the co-founder). We’re keepin’ it in the family!
Learn more about this great promotion here, and please be sure to keep up with Annie’s charming blog!
Contemporary artworks can command astronomical prices, so what about us little people that appreciate the works, but aren’t the CEO of our own Fortune 500 Company?
Introducing Art Barter, a clever idea that benefits wildly successful artists and us peons alike. Labeling itself as “a platform for free exchange between artists and the public,” the New York edition will open TONIGHT at the NP Contemporary Arts Center on the Lower East Side.
There is an exciting catch, however – while the curators reveal the participating artists, the pieces themselves remain unlabeled, allowing spectators to react based on their own genuine appreciation for the work.
Fans of Wendy Edelson’s elaborate, traditionally drawn children’s book work may be pleased to know that “The Baker’s Dozen, a Saint Nicholas Tale” has been rereleased in paperback just in time for the holidays!

‘In New York’ features a great mix of “art, antiques, and stylish finds” in their ‘Eclectic Collector’ section, and it comes as no surprise that the distinctive Robots created by David Lipson have found a place here. Take a look (and scroll down a bit – his is the second listing) to see the mention of his current gallery showing at the Animazing Gallery here in NYC.
Rene Milot’s stunning surrealistic work has been turning a lot of heads lately (please see yesterday’s post about his recent inclusion in the Society of Illustrators), and we thought it would be great to post some new images with our friends at the Altpick.
Please take a look at Rene’s updated portfolio here.
