Brett Wesley Gallery brings new voices to the fine arts community, cultivating emerging and mid-career artists rarely seen in the Las Vegas valley. During our event, Brett Wesley will be showcasing the work of 2 artists, John Bell and Jeff Schaller.

John Bell’s work combines abstract expressionism with geometric abstraction on large dimensional canvases. Bell employs multiple disciplines including silk screened, pop art images using thematic cues about identity, social issues, beauty and human loss.

Jeff Schaller paints in the unique medium of encaustic, creating textural art pieces which incorporate representational form with the printed word. His multiple-image pieces, with images ranging from polka dots t popular culture, evoke emotions and memories. In essence, the visual and written symbols merge to create a unique aesthetic language that is both provocative and whimsical.

Marketing, advertising and communication representatives as well as artists, graphic designers, paper vendors and printers have been invited for this unique showing. ISVodka will be serving ISopolitans and pure ISVodka shots for these art connoisseurs with discriminating palates.

Farrah Fawcett who passed away on June 25th will be remembered along with the King of Pop, Michael Jackson at the 2009 “House of Vinyl” BET Awards After-Party at the Green Door on June 28.

Farrah was best known for her role as the free-spirited private investigator, Jill Munroe in the TV series Charlie’s Angel in 1976. She quickly gained international fame. She was also the best-selling pin-up poster model featured in Life Magazine in the same year. Over 12 million copies sold around the world, breaking all records.  Farrah’s long legs, flashing smile and full hairstyle were the rage of the ’70s and ’80s. Women everywhere wanted the “Farrah Do” or the “Farrah Hair.” As a pop culture icon,  teens the world over emulated her look and fashion. Consequently, she was cast in TV commercials for popular hair, teeth and shaving cream products.

Farrah was nominated multiple times for the Golden Globe and Emmy Awards. In 1983 she won critical acclaim for her role as a would-be rape victim in the Off-Broadway show, Extremeties. She went on to play another physically and emotionally demanding role as a battered house wife in the TV movie, The Burning Bed. It was the first TV movie that gave an 800 number for abused women. She is known for taking challenging roles portraying infamous or renowned women. She played Beate Klarsfeld in The Nazi Hunter, the Woolworth heiress Barbara Hutton in Poor Little Rich Girl, convicted murdered Diane Downs in the mini-series Small Sacrifices and in 1989 she portrayed photojournalist Margaret Bourke-White . Farrah made guest appearances on TV shows such as I Dream of Jeannie, Owen Marshall: Counselor at Law, The Six Million Dollar Man, the Dating Game and Harry O from 1968 to 1976.

Farrah married the Six Million Dollar Man, Lee Majors in 1973 but in 1979, they separated. She was romantically involved with actor Ryan O’Neal from 1982 until her death but were never married. Together they had a son, Edmond O’Neal.

She was 62 years old when she died. She battled anal cancer for the last 3 years. This is a disease that affects roughly 5,000 people a year in the U.S. and kills more than 700. When detected early, the disease can be cured. Farrah’s cancer metastasized to her liver in April of 2009.  She died at 9:28 a.m. on June 25th at Saint John’s Health Center in Santa Monica, California with Ryan O’Neal and her good friend, Alana Stewart by her side.

A little bit about Billboard Magazine. It began in 1894 in Cincinnati, Ohio as a trade paper for advertisers in the billboard industry, hence the name. It covered news of circuses, amusement parks, fairs, carnivals, whale shows, vaudeville and minstrel shows. In 1909 it started covering motion pictures and in the 1920’s it took on radio. After the jukebox was invented in the 1930’s, Billboard began publishing music charts for which it is famous today. From the early ’60s to 2005, Billboard was solely devoted to the music industry. Currently, its online presence covers all forms of digital and mobile entertainment. With publication of over 100 charts a week, Billboard’s most popular charts are Hot 100, Billboard 200 and Hot 100 Airplay.

The Green Door is owned by Chris Breed, who also owns the White Lotus and Sunset Room. It’s a romantic club with a plush parlor look. Parisian turn-of-the-century luxury with antique settees, Venetian plastering, thick curtains, love seats and books! Porcini mushroom crepes, dessert crepes, steak frites and smoked salmon galettes are some favorite dishes.

Want to get in to The Green Door Club? The insider’s tip is, call 323-463-0008 to reserve a table for bottle service, or dinner. Without reservations, you are probably not going to get in. Sorry.
