ART From The HEART
 
 
 
An Art Show That Took Place On February 15th
 
In the Normal Heights Area of San Diego, California!

TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3992 -    I'm posting a few photos here from last Saturday's ART from the HEART show.   This was a one woman art show, that was presented by Batton Lash at the ArtLab Studios in the Normal Heights area of San Diego, California.

The show ran from 7PM to 10 PM, but I and my friend, Angelica, arrived early to shoot some photos of the gallery before it got busy.

I've blogged about Barbara Marker, Batton Lash, and ArtLab Studios before.  They are both great artists, and the ArtLab Studios is a fine place to exhibit art at.  David Rodger runs a great place for events at his ArtLab Studios.

I've seen Barbara's work before, but have mainly blogged about her comic book work.  At Saturday night's art show, the emphasis was on all of her other work.   That included abstract, animal art, unicorns, fantasy, and realistic art.  

This is the link to the rest of the photos that I took that night.  Where you can see her work, and others that attended the art show.

Everyone had a good time that I could see, and Batton Lash presented a very fine exhibit of Barbara's works!

Michael D Hamersky On Comics Presents His Take On The...
 

The Final Night of  the 2013 Leo Carrillo Film Festival Season

 
Here's Adventure... Here's Romance... The Cisco Kid!
 
 
TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3956 -     Last night, Tina and I attended the Final Night of the 2013 Leo Carrillo Film Festival.
 
As mentioned in the last review blog, the Leo Carrillo Historic Ranch is celebrating its 10th Anniversary up big with this year's Film Festival.
 
Last night was quite a bit different from the normal presentations shown at this Film Festival.
 
That's because it had Richard Renaldo, son of Duncan Renaldo, as the main feature.
 
Richard and additional guest, Carol Waffel, were on hand to talk about the June 2013 Award given to Duncan Renaldo and Leo Carrillo. 
 
Duncan & Leo were inducted into the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum. For induction the actors needed to have made a significant contribution to the perpetuation of Western film, radio or theatre. They must project the traditional Western ideals of honesty, integrity and self-sufficiency. 
 
Richard then gave a presentation on 'The Cisco Kid in Film', a very entertaining & informative narration.
 
The next feature was what appeared to be a 1981 remix of an old 'Cisco Kid' TV episode featuring Duncan & Leo.
 
Then after intermission, was the 1949 feature film, Satan's Cradle, which was presented in black & white.
 
All in all this evening proved to be very satisfying to me. It was the first time that the Leo Carrillo Film Festival was devoted to the 'Cisco Kid' for the evening to my knowledge.
 
I'm really pleased with attending several of the 2013 Leo Carrillo Film Festival evenings this season, including the special Dinner & A Movie Night that kicked off the Season.
 
Oh, and the tie-in to comic books is the Cisco Kid series from Dell Comics. There are 41 issues of this series, as seen at this link.
 
My thanks to Charles Balteria and his staff for a great 2013 Season!

TODAY'S FEATURE IS (GUEST) BLOG #3955 -     A month ago, on August 20th, I posted blog #3934, which was about 'Bring On The Lucha Heroes' - 60 Years of Mexican Masked Wrestlers In Comics!

That was because I attended a special panel at the Latino Comics Expo in Long Beach, California.  The history and pictures presented at the panel were very cool!

Well... This coming October 19th... A special exhibition is being presented in San Diego.  At the Centro Cultural De La Raza at 2004 Park Blvd.

For those of you that have interest in this topic... This could be a special way to spend the day!

Michael D Hamersky On Comics Presents His Take On The...
 

The September 6th of 2013 Event at the Leo Carrillo Film Festival Season

 
Held At the Leo Carrillo Ranch in Carlsbad, California!
 
 
TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3946 -     Last Friday night, Tina and I attended the 3rd Night of the 2013 Leo Carrillo Film Festival.
 
Which was nice, because the whole day had been very hot by Carlsbad standards!
 
As mentioned in last week's review blog, the Leo Carrillo Historic Ranch is celebrating its 10th Anniversary up big with this year's Film Festival.
 
We saw the 1951 episode titled 'Uncle Disinherits Niece' of the Cisco Kid TV Show, followed by the 1940 feature film, 20 Mule Team. Those in attendance, (all 150 of them), seemed to enjoy both the Cisco Kid episode as well as the 1940 film!   It was a good role for Wallace Beery, but not as good of a role for Leo Carrillo though... Oh, and this was Anne Baxter's 1st film!
 
Also, once again, Phyllis Coates was featured in the Cicso Kid episode.  She of course was 'Lois Lane' in 26 episodes of the 1950s TV Series 'Adventures of Superman' from 1951-1953!
 
Another tie-in to comic books is the Cisco Kid series from Dell Comics. There are 41 issues of this series, as seen at this link.
 
Also... Here is the link to what else is playing this 2013 Film Festival Season.  There are only two nights left this season!
 
You must make a reservation in advance to be one of the 150 attendees of each Friday Night's film showing.  The cost is 'Free', and we always have great fun under the stars at this seasonal Film Festival!

The August 30th of 2013 Leo Carrillo Film Festival Season

Held At the Leo Carrillo Ranch in Carlsbad, California!
 
 
TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3941 -     Last night, Tina and I attended the 2nd Night of the 2013 Leo Carrillo Film Festival.
 
This was after spending all week rennovating our house... So we were glad to get out of the house and under the stars!
 
The Leo Carrillo Historic Ranch is celebrating its 10th Anniversary up big with this year's Film Festival.
 
We saw the episode titled 'Phoney Sheriff' of the Cisco Kid, followed by the feature film, If You Could Only Cook. Those in attendance, (all 150 of them), seemed to enjoy both the Cisco Kid episode as well as the 1935 Depression Era film!  Jean Arthur & Leo Carrillo were outstanding in the film!
 
Also, Phyllis Coates was featured in the Cicso Kid episode.  She of course was 'Lois Lane' in 26 episodes of the 1950s TV Series 'Adventures of Superman' from 1951-1953!
