    Brian P., of Newport, Rhode Island, came to the ANTIQUE ROADSHOW with records of his great-grandfather, Charles Edward Minor. The collection, was valued by appraiser Gary Piattoni at between $2,500 and $3,500,  he was a decorated African American seaman a mere 20 years after the abolition of slavery.


    After retiring from the Navy at 52, Minor had the wherewithal to buy a four-bedroom home in Newport and to invest in the stock market. Again, Minor was ahead of his time. Says Brian, "Some of the stocks didn't pan out, but he was buying stocks a hundred at a time during the Great Depression. Black man or white man, that's something." True, yet it is all the more remarkable for a black man in a society that would be segregated by law for another 30 years.

    Christine Ilewski-Huelsmann Faces Not Forgotten Project-

    in Visual Arts

    Last September 2014, artist Alpha Bruton began networking with artist Christine Ilewski-Huelsmann of St. Louis Missouri, who is the author of the, “Faces Not Forgotten” project, painting the portraits of children who have died, the victims of gun violence. We have invited families of victims through the Ark of St. Sabina in Chicago, and artists from the Phantom Gallery Chicago Network, to paint a portraits of each child, which is donated to the family. An acrylic transfer of that image will be used to collage the “Faces” on small vintage handkerchiefs. The handkerchiefs is symbolic for loss, the “found” fabric element constant in my work.

    We plan to exhibit these portraits in various ways: strung together like the memorial funeral banners in South America; connected quilt like; bound into a soft fleshy book; and on websites that further protest gun violence. During Crime Victims’ Rights Week, April 2016, the exhibition will take place at the Phantom Gallery Chicago Loft Gallery, located in the Bronzeville Artist Lofts, Chicago IL. In a cross cultural exchange the art will also travel to the Blue line Gallery at the ACME Artists Building, sponsored by the Near North West Arts Council (A fiscal agent for the Phantom Gallery Chicago Network).

    Max Estrada

    in Education

    Being born into the beauty industry and with more then 10+ years of expertise and experience, Max Estrada has always had a strong belief in nail education and artistry.

    Max started with playing with his mother’s nail products and reading trade publications at a very early age, even attending his first trade show at the age of 5.

    He started his professional career working in his family’s salon in Arizona. Within the first year of Max’s career he aspersed to grow bigger as a nail technician, so he decided to enter his first competition.

    At the very young age of 16 with already a very quick and accurate acrylic application, Max entered his first professional nail competition.

    Max was confident in his work; he competed and placed within the top 10 for his division and category. Full of determination, his goal was to improve his skills and conquer the competitive world of nails!

    Now, Max places in every competition he enters and focus on further refining the nail shape and developing nail technologies that make the every nail artist’s life much easier. He believes that the best competition to win is the one with yourself; always strive for your personal best.

    Max’s ultimate dream was to have the best products to complement his education for the nail care industry. In 2014, Max invented and designed his own company and product line, aptly titled Exclusive Nail Couture Professional, nationally and globally.

    Today, Max competes all over the world. He has a true passion for his art and expresses his love for the nail industry through every nail he does. Max is now sharing his knowledge all over the world in his classes and through his new line of nail products.

    Being a trendsetter in the industry, Max says, “The nail industry is not about where it has been but where it’s going.”
