A Visit to Artist William Nelson’s Studio, Norwalk, CT, USA
Arts and Antiques
Artist William Nelson - Painting of Uma Thurman - photo by Luxury Experience
American Contemporary Artist William Nelson first caught the attention of Luxury Experience during the artist reception for his new works for the exhibition, PRETTY, Desirable, Delightful, DANGEROUS, at Cavalier Galleries in Greenwich, Connecticut. As film buffs, we were intrigued by his large-scale paintings featuring iconic actresses Rita Hayworth, Jane Russell, Brigitte Bardot, Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Uma Thurman, and many more set against New York landmarks and other film locations. The deft juxtaposition of the glamorous actresses and the landmarks in their films captured our imaginations and inspired us to learn more about the engaging artist behind the impressive art, William Nelson.

Jacques Pepin: Art of the Chicken

Jacques Pepin: Art of the Chicken
I first met Jacques Pépin in April 2005 at the James Beard House in New York when I interviewed him on receiving their Lifetime Achievement Award. Throughout the years, I have watched this kind and talented Master of the Kitchen and Master Artist charm and delight students, audiences, and readers of his many books. He has taught us not only how to cook, but how to have fun and take delight in the kitchen as well as in ourselves. His latest book, Jacques Pépin: Art of the Chicken - A Master Chef's Paintings, Stories, and Recipes of the Humble Bird is filled with wonderful stories and his impressive artwork and makes a wonderful gift for yourself or your favorite chef.

Vertigo Dance Company “Pardes” at The Quick Center, Fairfield, CT, USA
Performances
Vertigo Dance Company - Pardes - Dan Ashuach
Dance has the power to transcend words in that it speaks its own language, the language of dance, the language of movement and expressionism, that requires no translation, no matter the country where it is performed. Contemporary Dance inspires the imagination, which is much more powerful than mere words. We saw the Vertigo Dance Company, an Israeli Contemporary Dance Company co-founded by Noa Wertheim and Adi Sha' al perform their dance composition of "Pardes" at The Quick Center for the Arts at Fairfield University in Fairfield, Connecticut, and it was an evening of dance excellence. If you have the opportunity to experience a performance by the Vertigo Dance Company, do so, as they are truly spectacular.

Since 1905, Ottella wines from Lugana, Italy have been winning awards. Their Ottella Le Creete Lugana DOC 2021 received 92 points from Wine Spectator and is a crisp, white wine with luscious pineapple and grapefruit notes on the nose, and intense minerality from the white clay of the terroir. This is a wonderful wine to enjoy on its own or to pair with a variety of food. We paired it with pasta as well as with seafood, and the wine was delicious.

Il Grigio Da San Felice Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2019
Wine Cellar
San Felice Il Grigio Riserva Chianti Classico 2019
After the excitement of the November and December holidays, there is always a bit of a slide into the January doldrums and the need for a bit of decadence to ease into the new year. Riserva wines are always special, and we found that the Il Grigio Da San Felice Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2019 from the San Felice Estate in Siena, Italy was especially so and just what we needed with its tradition of excellence. This intense, deep ruby red Tuscan wine is richly aromatic with layers nuances of ripe red berries on the nose and the palate with lush tannins and balanced acidity. Il Grigio Da San Felice Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2019 is imported from Italy to the United States by Total Beverage Solution. Saluti!

With over 30-years of playing together, the trio, of Tim "Too Slim" Langford, Zach Kasik, and Jeff "Shakey" Fowlkes, shows that nothing can slow them down. An evening of Blues, Rock, and a nod to the many Americana influences on this creative trio results in a hard charging, blazing must-have release.

Ben Levin - Take Your Time
Cincinnati-based bluesman Ben Levin has another great release out entitled, Take Your Time, which is something he clearly does not do, as this is his fifth stellar release, and while a seasoned Blues veteran with a trail of Blues award nominations to his credit, he is only in his 20s. Released on the VizzTone Label Group, the 12-track Ben Levin: Take Your Time release features Ben Levin on piano, joined by Blues master Bob Stroger, Lil' Ed Williams, Lil' Jimmy Reed, Johnny Burgin, Noah Wotherspoon, Aron Levin, Walter Cash, Ricky Nye, Shorty Starr, and Kris Butler. Lovers of the Blues are going to love Ben Levin: Take Your Time; I sure did!
