Alfred Phillips "Never Gone"

Art Expressions Gallery (1212 NE 4th Ave) presents Alfred Phillips "Never Gone" from November 4th - November 27th. Alfred Phillips has been nurturing his talent for as long as he can remember, but his formal introduction to art began with a full scholarship to the Art Center School in his native Louisville. Phillips moved to Florida in October of 2003 fulfilling his life-long dream of having his own painting studio. Alfred prefers painting with acrylics as oils are too slow for his liking. His work begins by quickly sketching ideas on paper relying on imagination, personal observation and memory. He may paint directly on the canvas without sketching or he may painstakingly draw the image in exact detail. Alfred Phillips has received more art prizes and accolades than most artist accrue over a lifetime. The artist won eleven awards in one year alone, including four Best In Show awards. In the Broward Art Guild’s 55 years of existence, no artist had won first and second place prizes in the same show until he took honors in landscape and still life categories in 2004.  The art community in South Florida is happy to know that Alfred Phillips is still around and Never Gone. Art Expressions Gallery proudly invites you to join them on Saturday, November 4th to meet Alfred Phillips as he presents his latest works. A wine and cheese reception will be held that evening from 7:00 P.M. to 9:00 P.M.  Gallery Hours: Mon. - Sat. 11:00 am - 7:00 pm. Admission is free. For more info: 954-527-7700.

Fort Lauderdale Chef Featured on Bravo’s Top Chef

Carlos Fernandez, 36-year-old Executive Chef and Co-Owner of Fort Lauderdale’s Hi-Life Café, is one of 15 chosen from more than 14,000 chefs from across America to compete on the second season of Bravo’s TOP CHEF, premiering on Bravo at 11:00 pm on Wednesday, October 18. Born in Cuba and raised in Hoboken, New Jersey, Carlos is a perfectionist in the kitchen.  He is a self-taught master influenced by his Cuban heritage, experiences in several New York City restaurants, and his guardian angel and mistress of the kitchen, Julia Child.  Carlos came to Fort Lauderdale in 1995 with his business and life-partner, Chuck Smith.  Carlos brought his eclectic cuisine (and those exceptional sauces).  Chuck brought his mother’s orange coconut chess pie recipe and his flair for wine and restaurant management.   The two created an intimate dining experience with an exquisite but down-to-earth cuisine.  The Hi-Life Cafe has been placed on Zagat’s “Top 40 Florida Restaurants” list for 5 years and “America’s Best Meals” list for 6 years, and received the Wine Spectator Magazine’s Award of Excellence 6 years in a row, as well as numerous other awards.  The little restaurant and wine bar Carlos and Chuck wanted to open is not only one of Fort Lauderdale’s favorites – it is recognized as one of South Florida’s premier restaurants. As the first episode of TOP CHEF Season 2 approaches, Carlos’s ear-to-ear smile, high energy and creativity are making the Hi-Life’s kitchen explode with new dishes that equal and even surpass the well-established and respected Hi-Life offerings.  He is already at the top of South Florida’s list of chefs, but is he America’s next top chef?

‘Judy Garland: The Dressing of a Legend’

Exhibit a Special Highlight of Gay Men’s Chorus’ Oct. 27 Revue

A special collection of 15 gowns worn by legendary performer Judy Garland in her movies, TV shows and concerts will be on display at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts on Friday, Oct. 27 as a special added feature of the Fort Lauderdale Gay Men’s Chorus’ musical revue “JUDY: A Celebration of the Music and Legend of Judy Garland.” The dresses are part of an extensive collection of “Garlandia” that fan Michael Siewert, now from Augusta, GA, began collecting when he was only six years old. “Like thousands of others, my Michael Siewert Judy Garland: The Dressing of a Legendgreat interest in Judy Garland started when I was a child and first fell in love with ‘Dorothy’ in The Wizard of Oz,” Siewert noted. He then went on to direct and produce “concerts” for his family, consisting of his younger sister lip-synching to Garland recordings. It wasn’t until a few years later, upon asking his parents to take him to Kansas to meet Dorothy, that he was told who Judy Garland, the actress, was. Although he was crushed that he would never be able to meet the deceased star, he began buying her memorabilia at flea markets and through mail order.  At first, he was like every other collector, acquiring everything from old magazine covers to dolls, plates, books, records, sheet music and other memorabilia. Eventually, he purchased his first Judy movie costume. “I always assumed that only museums bought these sorts of things,” he noted. “I never dreamed they were attainable by people like me, a regular fan.” One costume led to another, then another. Within a few years, he forged connections that led him to buying incredible items from auction houses, private collectors and even from Judy’s family members. He’s become very well known in Garland circles and has privately met Liza Minnelli as well as Lorna, Sid and Joe Luft. He even met with Judy’s last husband, Mickey Deans, who chose Siewert as the only Garland fan he would ever meet. Over the years, Siewert has learned the skills needed to authenticate real Garlandia. “I’ve seen a lot of fake stuff out there,” he said. “The web in particular is full of people who misrepresent items and will take advantage of an eager fan looking to buy a piece of history. I’ve learned that the old adage is true — if something seems to be too good to be true, it almost always is!” Siewert will display the 15 gowns from his collection, as well as a video and a booklet of photos showing Garland wearing the gowns, from 7 to 8 p.m. in the Amaturo Theatre’s lobby prior to the Gay Men’s Chorus’ concert. Curtain time is 8 p.m. Only concert ticket holders will be allowed to attend the free exhibit. Tickets for the “JUDY” revue and exhibit are $40, $30 and $20 and are available through the AutoNation Box Office at (954) 462-0222 or online at  Tickets for both the revue and the chorus’ entire 21st season are available at Season tickets for $40 or $30 seats for each of the four main productions of the chorus’ 2006-07 season (at 15% discount per ticket) or “pick 3” (at 10% discount) are only available through or from chorus members. All four of the main productions will be performed in the beautiful, 590-seat Amaturo Theatre of the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, 201 SW 5th Ave., Fort Lauderdale. The Fort Lauderdale Gay Men’s Chorus exists with a mission to build community through quality musical performances that promote a world that accepts and values diversity. Rehearsing on Wednesday evenings at the Sunshine Cathedral, 1480 SW 9th Ave., the chorus welcomes new singing members, as well as those who support the chorus behind the scenes on its crew, governing board or as donors. Next scheduled auditions for new or returning singing members are Nov. 4. For more information on the FTLGMC and its 21st season, see or call (954) 832-0060. This organization is funded in part by the Broward County Board of County Commissioners as recommended by the Broward Cultural Division. The chorus’ 21st season is also sponsored by Norwegian Cruise Lines (NCL) and Pride South Florida.
