I hope all of you enjoyed your Easter week.

I really feel blessed that I had the opportunity to rest a few days on the Emerald Coast of Florida because, since my return, I had many opportunities to toast my beloved New Orleans. 
I made it just in time to attend the always-fun Strictly Biz Night presented by Biz New Orleans. The free event took place at the Maison Dupuy Hotel as part of the lovely Sippin' in the Courtyard.

On Saturday, March 26, I left work early at Casell-Bergen Gallery to join the Steinberg family in salute, celebration and remembrance of the exceptional life and times of Steve Steinberg. The service began at 2 p.m. at the Carver Theater in the Treme, followed by a traditional first and second line brass band funeral parade to Steve's Vieux Carre home at 923 St. Ann Street.
Every year, I look forward to donning my Easter finery with Duchess Chiquita Bergen in tow to participate in the annual Chris Owens' Easter Parade, as guest of my darling friend Sammy Steele III. Fortunately, Mother Nature cooperated and allowed the participants and the onlookers to enjoy the annual parade. Hope you will enjoy this link:
This upcoming week is going to be a very busy one. 
I started  my week today, when I joined the New Orleans Tourism Marketing Corporation  to launch the "Happy Tuesday Campaign" at the French Market. 
Part of a novel campaign to encourage early to mid-week visitation to the city, the tourism industries including Casell Bergen Gallery has embraced the campaign by offering special prices, discounts, and experiences for those who sty between Sunday and Wednesday. Over 50 industry partners have signed on with more expected.or Press conference at French Market for Happy Tuesday!

More than 30 extraordinary, blazingly bright silk covered structures will fill the Botanical Garden.  We'll have 100s of lanterns to delight you at every turn. Picture an incredible glowing dragon 192-feet long, a four-story, lit-from-within pagoda towering high enough to be seen from almost any vantage and dozens of dazzlingly colorful lighted displays created by a team of some 100 artisans and technical staff from Sichuan Tianyu, located in Zigong, China.
These beautiful objects have been enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of people in Europe, most recently in Rotterdam, the Netherlands and, and in the United states first in Spokane, Washington and now in New Orleans.

See the lanterns during the day or view them at night.

Hogs for the Cause and the Link Restaurant Group
Present an Italian Wedding Feast inspired by "The Godfather"
at 4th Annual Pre-Hogs Gala Dinner

New Orleans, Louisiana- Hogs for the Cause and the Link Restaurant Group present an Italian Wedding Feast, the 4th annual pre-Hogs gala dinner and kickoff for the two-day fundraising event. The menu, inspired by the two wedding scenes depicted in The Godfather , will be coordinated by the Link Restaurant Group (Donald Link, Stephen Stryjewski, Ryan Prewitt, Rebecca Wilcomb, Levon Wallace and Billy Jones), with guest chefs Andrew Ticer and Michael Hudman (Hog & Hominy, Memphis), Kristen Essig (Meauxbar & Cavan, New Orleans), Carey Bringle (Peg Leg Porker, Nashville) and Tandy Wilson (City House, Nashville). This special dinner is set for Thursday, March 31, 2016 at The Arbor Room at Popp Fountain in City Park, with cocktails beginning at 6PM, followed by dinner at 7:30PM. Music, a silent and live auction, and some surprises will entertain guests throughout the evening. A limited number of tickets to the event are available for $200 each.

"Tracksuits and bad tuxedos are required, slick mustaches are optional, but excessive romantic behavior is encouraged," jokes Rene Louapre. "The gala dinner has become a fun way to showcase both the foods and talents of our region, while supporting a great cause... and who doesn't love a little Godfather every once in awhile." The Sicilian inspired menu will include such foods as antipasti platters, pasta, a meat course with contorni, wines provided by Neat Wines, and of course Italian cookies and a wedding cake. A pre-event Cocktail hour will kick the party off with cocktails featuring Cathead Vodka, Bristow Gin, and Rougaroux Rum created and served by the team from Cure Co. Tickets to the Italian Wedding Feast gala dinner are available for purchase on the Hogs for the Cause website

Hogs for the Cause is a 501(c)(3) organization that operates as the premier funding source for pediatric brain cancer outreach services in the United States. It provides help to families who are struggling with the financial burdens of caring for a child with brain cancer.

Arthur Kern: The Surreal World of a Reclusive Sculptor
Arthur Kern is a retired Tulane Professor of Art, who all but withdrew from the outside world thirty years ago. Since then, he has spent much of his time working in his basement studio, creating scores of surreal sculptures that disturb as often as they enchant. Kern's subjects are horses and people, distorted in sometimes fanciful, sometimes macabre ways. His inspiration flows from his unconscious and can therefore be somewhat difficult to fathom, even for Kern himself. Since Kern has never had much interest in exhibiting or selling his sculptures, they have accumulated on shelves and table tops in the uptown house he shares with his wife of sixty years. Arthur Kern includes sixty of Kern's molded polyester sculptures. It is an impressive retrospective and, at the same time, a surprising and stunning debut

    click for more info...
    06:00 PM - 08:00 PM

    Mike Dillon has been called a "punk rock provocateur," "jazz vibraphone visionary" and "percussion virtuoso." Whether through his affiliation with artists like Les Claypool, Brave Combo and Ani DiFranco, collaborations such as Garage A Trois, The Dead Kenny Gs and Critters Buggin, or bands he's fronted, including Billy Goat and Hairy Apes BMX, the Texas native has set his own standard for the past 25 years. With his latest effort, Band of Outsiders, Mike Dillon has conjured the perfect storm of all these past endeavors.
    "People are always trying to figure out how to describe our music. Maybe we should call it New Orleans punk jazz Brazilian math rock? It's a gumbo of tribal percussion, The Meters, old school hardcore, Brazil, hard bop and anything else that might move us," concludes Dillon. "But you know, I really don't care what you call it. We kick out the jams harder than anyone, and we also know when to heed the lessons of The Minutemen's Double Nickels On The Dime and keep things straight to the point. There's a reason we called the record what we did. We're the living, breathing definition of a band of outsiders, but together we deliver simple majestic beauty."

The Glass Menagerie marked a crucial turning point in American theatre, and forever changed the life of its then unknown author.  Williams' elegiac masterpiece brought a radical new lyricism to Broadway the tragedy, fragility, and tenderness of this "memory play" has made it one of America's most powerful, timeless, and compelling works of theatre. Renowned for its vivid characters, exquisitely written dialogue, and absorbing story, The Glass Menagerie promises to move, to entrance, and to dazzle.

The Kitchen Witches

Isobel Lomax and Dolly Biddle are two "mature" cable-access cooking show hostesses who have hated each other for 30 years, ever since Larry Biddle dated one and married the other. When circumstances put them together on a TV show called The Kitchen Witches, the insults are flung harder than the food! Dolly's long-suffering TV-producer son Stephen tries to keep them on track, but as long as Dolly's dressing room is one inch closer to the set than Isobel's, it's a losing battle, and the show becomes a rating smash as Dolly and Isobel top both Martha Stewart and Jerry Springer!

"With many events already lined up for 2017 we will continue to have educational components and plenty of dance and entertainment.  In the meantime we intend to make this year a success!"
There are ragtime enthusiasts all over this country that have been yearning for this kind of an event. We have had requests from concert performers that want to be able to play at our event from Scandinavia, France, England, and Holland. While we are honored with these requests, we are supporting our beloved New Orleans by only hiring local musicians for the first year of this event.  No other city could pull off an endeavor like this.  This is a true, "only in New Orleans" event.
