Two Notable William Hays Portraits on Exhibit

These two William Hays portraits of notable people in Brattleboro, Vermont, among a score or so of portraits he painted as part of his Local Portraits Of Brattleboro Series, are on exhibition in the front window of Angel Boy Arts (next to Shin La Restaurant) through the end of this month.

Looking through William's blog for April 2001, I was just reminded that the Dr. Wayne London portrait, the one on the right (of course) won the Dr. Robert L. Bartolli Memorial Award of the Academic Artists Association in 2001. As the winner, it was exhibited at the 51st National Exhibition of Contemporary Realism in Art, which was held in Springfield, MA.

Weekend Comedy Series: Andy Kaufman

Andy Kaufman is one of those comedy legends that people either love or hate. I love him. Lise hates him.

Here is is, at Carnegie Hall, in 1979, messing with audiences and making them laugh, and wince, and be uncomfortable. Kaufman didn’t consider himself a comedian so much as a prankster and performance artist.

This show has it all. Tony Clifton, little kids, his grandmother on stage, wrestling women, and taking the entire audience out for milk and cookies after the show.
