NORWOOD CLUB

 It's like being in a Parisian salon in the 1920's...plush velvet couches, drinks, music and surrounded by art and artists,curated by Rodrigo  Salomon and  Pamela Willoughby.  A photo of TWIGGY by Bert Stern, non stop portrait painting by BARNABY RUHE, a fourth floor art gallery showing DON PERLIS artist of the Times Square mural of George Floyd and more ..Artist and musician TATIANA LISOVSKAYA shows her paintings, and performed  and sang at the opening of Norwood.  In addition she wrote a piano score for Julian Schnabel's movie of VINCENT VAN GOGH
.Music is by Willard Morgan on 3 and during brunch in the garden you can hear  the Michael Arenella Trio  all at the private membership  NORWOOD CLUB  241 West 14 Street.   

This 1857 mansion is on the National Historic Register and the NYC Landmarks Commision.

The owner and chef, ALAN LINN says he wanted to create a new  club as his dream., uniting art and food.  He feels it is a "new era".  From London, he enlisted the Simon Costin, a friend of Steve McQueem who lent his talents to enhance his dream.  He hired 3 people from clubs studio 54, Limelight, and Mercer and had the plush velvet couches built by the upholsterers  of the Russian Room. He built it for curious folk from all creative disciplines to have them meet and clash. "It is a club  for "the curious",Once you go there, you don't want to leave. And don't forget to order his secret shrimp dish which  contains sugar, garlic and paprika - So divine! 

...its a bit of heaven in New York...

IN    HIS   MEMORY

                    G E O R G E  F L O Y D
                    poem by carol ostrow
                    Outrage, sadness, shame for criminal   acts,
Has nothing to do with the actual facts.
Nothing wrong to protest and shout,
But what is all this looting about ??

How can my voice scream to be heard,
When a killing excuses and covers the absurd,
Criminals who use our sorrow to excuse,
To steal, to break, to take, to abuse.
        When is enough enough?

Yes, to punish the guilty few,
On video we see, we could hear and knew,
Evil was done by an officer in blue.
But, no matter how terrible, to take to the 
                          Street
And commit crimes, commit mayhem,
                  Cannot compete,
As evil upon evil makes a shamble of your
                           Rage.

Unless you are punished for commiting such                               wrongs,
We cannot turn to another page,
Or even sing our freedom's songs.

No excuses for committing, yet another
                            Crime.
Yes, we hurt but must look to heal and,  Somehow prepare for a better time.

Right now, this minute, enough is enough.

A P A P  Association of Performing  Arts Professionals

APAP, the international performing arts organization develops and supports

the rights  of performing artists offering at their 2020 NY conference  connections to agents, consultants, presenters and venues in theater, circus, world music, jazz, classical  and dance . President Mario Garcia Durham welcomed the 1,000 in

attendance with  its mission of bringing artists together with audiences with meetings, networking, a huge exposition and entertainment venues of  singers, dancers, musicians, magicians and a huge cocktail party serving Korean barbecue and pasta.

This years theme was “Risk and Resiliency”.

The Academy award winner ESTELLE PARSONS spoke about exposure to danger in her life, with her portrayal in “Bonnie and Clyde”.  Lynn Fisher, Co-Chair of the conference and Director of Frontera Arts of Austin, Texas was deeply moved by

the passion of Alice Sheppard’s speech, who risked her disability to learn to dance, and showed a video of performers in wheel chairs hanging on a stage..

From Iran, King Ram showed his movie “Departure” about the struggle his parents had in Iran.  Jamilla Deria from Ecuador spoke about her performance at the Whitney.  And when asked why all the British actors are the best, a London

representative said” it’s all in the water they drink “.
