Local Singer from The Voice Season 3 Raises Awareness for Rare Brain Condition

Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) October 29, 2013

Michaela Paige, a singer and songwriter best known for her R&B and pop music style, and favorite local radio show host, will perform at the annual South Florida Hydrocephalus Association WALK on Saturday, November 9, 2013 in Deerfield Beach. The event will raise funds to support critical research initiatives and current education and outreach programs of the Hydrocephalus Association, the nations largest patient-advocacy organization dedicated to serving the estimated 1 million Americans living with hydrocephalus.

Starting at the young age of 8, Michaela has been performing all over South Florida, from benefit concerts to paid performances. While performing Jazz, Blues, and R&B throughout local South Florida businesses and open-mike nights at coffeehouses, she was also writing her own music with the goal and intent of using her gift to help and inspire others. In 2012, Michaela participated in NBCs hit reality TV show, The Voice, where she not only earned a spot in the Top 12, but graced the likes of USA Today, Rolling Stone, Access Hollywood, and the iTunes Top 100 Chart, to name a few. Michaela is also the host of three radio shows on W4CY, currently ranked number one in south Florida and thirteenth in the world for internet radio.

“We are very excited to have Michaela play at our event this year. She is an incredible performer and her energy and music will really create a festive atmosphere for walkers,” stated Eileen Rodger, the event co-chair and mother of a 12 year old son with hydrocephalus.

Hydrocephalus is a condition in which cerebrospinal fluid accumulates in the brain. There is no cure and the only treatment option requires brain surgery. About two in every 1,000 babies are born with hydrocephalus. It can also develop as the result of a traumatic brain injury (TBI) or as a part of the aging process in the senior population, where it is often misdiagnosed as Alzheimers or Parkinsons disease.

The Hydrocephalus Associations 8th annual South Florida Hydrocephalus Association WALK will be held on Saturday, November 9, 2013 at Quiet Waters Park in Deerfield Beach. Check in will open at 8:45 am; the WALK begins at 10:00 am. An estimated 600 participants are expected to walk in the event. Mike Sipe from Mike Sipe Entertainment will be Master of Ceremonies, with other special guests such as the new 97-3 THE COAST- new home of the KVJ Show, Boca Raton Firefighters Pipe and Drum Corps, singer Pamela Martyna, Florida Panthers Street Team, Star Wars characters from the 501st Legion and Rebel Legion, Broward Sheriffs Office, face painters and even the Ft Lauderdale Strikers mascot- Hot Shot, will be there to cheer on the walkers.

NY Contemporary Artist Elena Borstein’s Architectural Paintings on View in Westport, NY at Atea Ring Gallery from July 13, 2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) July 10, 2013

Elena Borstein has long been interested in architecture. “Like Edward Hopper, Id rather paint a patch of sunlight on a wall than a human face. For her part, she began painting buildings while still a college student photographing abandoned houses in Saratoga Springs, and not having equipment to illuminate them, switched to painting so she could light them as she wished.

In graduate school, she drew in the cavernous halls of an old Frank Furness building in Philadelphia where the sculpture studios were housed and attended architecture classes of Louis Kahn, who inspired her with his poetic musings on architecture. She later combined this interest with her love of travel to become an architectural flaneur. Instead of looking at great architecture of the past or ancient ruins, which inspired and stimulated so many architects, she instead focused on the vernacular architecture, and in particular that which lines the shores. hillsides and islands of the Mediterranean. The white cubist buildings translated into painterly light, color and geometric space in her paintings.

In the catalogue for a 2011 retrospective, Janet Koplos says, If one were to attempt an interpretation of this body of work, enclosure and protection are surely among the possible motives. Borstein stands in these places: she experiences them as geometry and color, the useful elements of art. But her interest in light as well as color, in space as well as plane gives each setting breathing room. Im reminded of Tadao Andos early architecture, with its empty concrete courtyards in which sun and rain and wind mark the presence of nature. Borstein captures that same clarity and heightening of the senses in her paintings.????

In 2007, on an extended trip to Japan, Borstein got a chance to experience Andos architecture firsthand on the island of Naoshima where she both lived and worked in buildings he designed. Representing these iconic spaces in two dimensions, the artist is able to show them independently of their function and the paintings become visual metaphors for the actual spaces. Two paintings in this exhibit, Rokko and the Green Wall, capture not only the concreteness of the architecture but salient associations, the sound of rain on the roof, the movement of shadows.

In Two Museums, a photo, taken on a trip to the Santiago Calatrava extension of the Milwaukee Art Museum, becomes a mashup with a photo Borstein took of the Miho Museum near Kyoto. A grid superimposed upon a skylight, both allowing the outside in and bathing the interiors in light.

Reitberg – Two Views, an extension to a 19th century Zurich museum, also provides a confluence of inside and outside views with the artist opening a wall to penetrate further and further into the space beyond.

A Symphony of Modules” depicts a 2012 structure by Stephen Holl that is inspired by the music of Hungarian composer Istvan Anhalf. The artist pared down its elements to capture the sounds of the structures as well at the spaces of silence between.

Borsteins work can also be viewed in Philadelphia at Seraphin Gallery, 1108 Pine Street, Philadelphia, PA.

Information about Elena Borstein:

Elena Borstein currently lives and works in New York City and the Adirondack Mountains. Born in Hartford, Connecticut, she received her B.S. Degree in Fine Arts from Skidmore College and her B.F.A. and M.F.A. degrees from the University of Pennsylvania. She is Professor Emerita of York College, CUNY.

Borstein’s work is included in numerous major collections including: the Museum of Modern Art, NY; Hayden Museum, MIT, Cambridge, MA; Neuberger Museum, Purchase, NY; Everson Museum, Syracuse, NY; Newark Museum, Newark, NJ.

Throughout the 70′s, 80′s, and 90′s Borstein traveled to Greece and throughout the Mediterranean, where she was captivated by the light and simple geometry of the houses. In 1987 she traveled to Cuba and has returned many times since. For the last ten years Borstein has been living in the Adirondack Mountains.

Reviews 2012′s Top-10 Luckiest Finds from Attics, Thrift Stores and Garage Sales

Miami, FL (PRWEB) December 20, 2012

Online auction site eBid ( has compiled some of the most surprising, inspiring and valuable finds of 2012. From garage sales, thrift stores and their own attics, average people continue to stumble upon treasures right under their noses.

1) While cleaning his late aunt’s house in Ohio this June, Karl Kissner discovered a bundle of baseball cards over 100 years old in a cardboard box. These mint-condition cards of Ty Cobb, Cy Young and Honus Wagner, and other historical greats has been called “the most significant find in the history of the hobby,” by Chris Ivy of Heritage Auctions. The cards have been valued at more than $ 3 million and Mr. Kissner believes they were owned by his grandfather who may have used them to help promote his butcher shop. Mr. Kissner commented, “When I opened the will, my Aunt had put little hand written notes in it, ok. And one of the little notes in it was, ‘Karl, as you go through the house you will find things you never knew existed.’ Could not have been a truer statement.”

2) Early in the year, an 81-year old South Carolina man – who is only willing to be identified by his middle name, “Leroy” – bought a painting for $ 3 at Goodwill. Having a good eye, he thought it might be worth “a couple hundred dollars” so he had it appraised. Turns out, it originated from a Flemish school in Amsterdam and was painted around 1650. The painting sold at auction in March for $ 190,000.

3) Harv Bennett, of Pomona, CA was very happy to have saved an Atari 2600 game cartridge with its box and manual for more than 25 years. Considered the rarest of video games, his copy of “Air Raid” sold at auction in November for $ 33,433. The game is considered rare because it’s believed that less than 20 were ever produced – because it was so boring. Mr. Bennett had worked decades ago at a discount store where the game’s sales representative came in to persuade him to stock it. He gave Bennett a sample copy and when Bennett told him he didn’t think it would work for the store, the rep told him (probably further discouraged) that he could keep it.

4) In May, at the Volunteers of America thrift store in Columbus, OH, Zach Bodish paid $ 14 for what he assumed was a reproduction Picasso poster advertising a 1958 Picasso ceramics show. Examining it further when he got home though, Bodish soon got a shock when he realized some red marks in the poster’s corner could be Picasso’s own signature and the poster proved to be an authentic original. He sold the print to a private buyer for $ 7,000.

5) Beth Feeback, a North Carolina resident bought a $ 10 abstract painting at Goodwill. She was going to paint over it, but her friends urged her to Google some of the names on back, “Weatherspoon Art Gallery” and “Ilya Bolotowsky”. She soon learned that Bolotowsky was a well-known abstract painter who had fled Russia in the early 20th century and the painting titled “Vertical Diamond” is valued at around $ 20,000.

6) In August, Chattanooga, TN resident Stephon Tull was cleaning out his father’s attic in Chattanooga when he stumbled onto something startling: an audio reel labeled, “Dr. King interview, Dec. 21, 1960.” It turned out to be a never-before-heard interview with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., an amazing piece of history but also one with monetary value, as it was sold to a private collector for an undisclosed sum.

7) In October, a novice treasure hunter in bought his first-ever metal detector from a shop in St Albans, Hertfordshire, UK. Later that day, he returned carrying 40 gold Roman coins asking “What should I do with these?” The shop owners were stunned and returned with him to the site in the woods bringing their own equipment. They ultimately found 119 more coins in the cache, for a total value of more than ?100,000 ($ 162,000).

8) In November, some workers with quick eyes at a Goodwill donation center in Tacoma, WA noticed the quality of a donated picture. Some research proved it to be in fact a signed Salvador Dali etching. It’s titled “Reflection” from Dali’s “Cycles of Life Suite”, number 126 of 150. Goodwill auctioned it on their site and sold the piece for over $ 21,000.

9) Schoolteacher Jane Cordery in Basingstoke, Hampshire, UK, was cleaning out her attic and found a forgotten painting that had been given as a gift years before. She emailed a photo to Christie’s auction house which immediately identified it as a piece by Victorian artist William James Webbe, painted around 1856. Christie’s appraised it at ?70,000 ($ 113,000) but it ultimately sold at auction in December for ?589,250 ($ 955,000), setting a world record for the artist’s works.

10) Most recently, Karen Mallet, in Milwaukee, WI, bought an abstract print for $ 12.34 at her local Goodwill store. It turned out to be a signed lithograph titled “Red Nose” by American artist Alexander Calder. While the piece has been appraised at $ 9,000 by Jacob Fine Art Inc., Ms. Mallet has no intention to sell it “Red Nose”. “It grew on me,” she said. “Now I love it.”

When it comes time to sell those treasures, is a great place for that. It’s one of the world’s largest, hosting over 5.4 million live auction listings representing a gross marketplace value of nearly $ 3.5 billion. And best of all, eBid charges no listing fees and only a nominal 0% – 3% in final value fees, making it one of the fairest deals in the ecommerce industry (always a great idea when you’re selling that original Picasso…) Further, eBid will actually pay you through a generous affiliate program just for adding banners/links to your website, emails or Facebook pages. And perhaps the biggest bonus of all – eBid members can earn rewards up to $ 104.99 for a single referral. Details on the affiliate program are available here –
