Sculptor Hoss Haley creates two and three dimensional works in steel, concrete, and bronze. He favors industrial materials and fabrication methods, often building or adapting the machines and tools he uses to produce his work. Hoss has completed public art projects for the Pack Square Conservancy (Asheville, NC), Charlotte Area Transit System and Mecklenburg County (NC) as well as several privately commissioned large-scale steel sculptures. Hoss’s work has been shown at several museums and galleries nationwide, and he has been a resident artist at Penland School of Crafts (NC) and at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center (WI). Hoss learned machining and steel fabrication at an early age and then apprenticed as a blacksmith for several years in Texas and New Mexico. Decades later his work is heavily influenced both conceptually and aesthetically by the western landscape of his youth.
Beekman Place, once one of the most exclusive addresses in Manhattan, had a curious way of making it into the tabloids in the 1930's: “SKYSCRAPER SLAYER,” “BEAUTY SLAIN IN BATHTUB” read the headlines. On Easter Sunday in 1937, the discovery of a grisly triple homicide at Beekman Place would rock the neighborhood yet again—and enthrall the nation. The young man who committed the murders would come to be known in the annals of American crime as the Mad Sculptor.
The charismatic perpetrator, Robert Irwin, was a brilliant young sculptor who had studied with some of the masters of the era. But with his genius also came a deeply disturbed psyche; Irwin was obsessed with sexual self-mutilation and was frequently overcome by outbursts of violent rage.
Irwin’s primary victim, Veronica Gedeon, was a figure from the world of pulp fantasy—a stunning photographer's model whose scandalous seminude pinups would titillate the public for weeks after her death. Irwin’s defense attorney, Samuel Leibowitz, was a courtroom celebrity with an unmatched record of acquittals and clients ranging from Al Capone to the Scottsboro Boys. And Dr. Fredric Wertham, psychiatrist and forensic scientist, befriended Irwin years before the murders and had predicted them in a public lecture months before the crime.
Based on extensive research and archival records, The Mad Sculptor recounts the chilling story of the Easter Sunday murders—a case that sparked a nationwide manhunt and endures as one of the most engrossing American crime dramas of the twentieth century. The book evokes the faded glory of post-depression New York and the singular madness of a brilliant mind turned against itself.

Greetings, Peace, prosperity and wisdom to all the 9MIND Sacred Sistuhs, others and especially those we love. Tonights show will be about sexual behavior and how our concepts of sex or shaped based off religion, who we live around what type of society is governing us and whether we be free people or slaves. Other factors that can determine ones sexual behavior is the various forms of overt or subliminal sexual programming one is exposed to on a regular bases such as commercials, food, billboards/flyers, sexual songs, movies, cartoons, magazines, gentlemen clubs, strip clubs, escort services, parties ect.... All of these overt and subliminal sexual lures and advertisements all will eventually shape our opinions on sex and thus have a strong effect on our sexual desires and behavior and we should know this and not take for granted how POWERFUL sexual advertisement can be. Women especially should know that such a overly sexualized environment or society will have the most negative effect and consequences for them the most vulnerable of a society and children. So women most of all should be the last ones seeking to willingly participate in such a ovrly sexualized society let alone encourage it with loose or amoral behavior and yet here in America just such a society has been stratecically created and maintained to hold many unsuspecting American citizens as permanent prisoners to lust and uncontrolled sexual appetites that will be the downfall of our Republic or Democracy... in the same way sexual perversion was the downfall of the ancient Roman Empire. Are we looking at a repeat of ancient history? States most single men/women.

Evening with Ella and Creative Writers. Featured book: Black Cotton by Rasta Asaru Escott EL
Rasta Asaru Escott EL, Photographer, Digital Editor, Illustrator and Sculptor, was born and raised in Los Angeles, California, where he currently resides. Escott EL’s inspiration came at an early age when he found himself intrigued by the various elements, textures and colors of materials.
In 2000, Escott EL began to try his artistic eye in film and digital rendering, to further capture his creative ideas. It was in those moments that he found himself intrigued with photography and the platforms that came with them.
Black Cotton celebrates the natural beauty of black women in an exhibited art form with the use of various mediums such as: fashion, makeup, hair design, photography and graphic design. Black Cotton tells a photographic story of the African presence in various cultures from an artistic point of view. The beginning of the book opens with a historical preface of the Afro hairstyle, the iconic afro pick, and our presence in other cultures.
Additionally, what made the Black Cotton project great was the collaboration with other artists and writers. Throughout the book are poems and quotes that either my wife and I wrote or the contribution made my other authors and poets. It’s a great book for your daughter, niece or the teenaged girl in your life. Seeing the images of black women portrayed in such an artistic and power light gives our daughters something to admire about their own beauty and power.

Ottawa sculptor Norman Pirollo uses wood as his primary medium, drawing inspiration from its inherent beauty. Born in Toronto and raised in Montreal, he pursued studies in the technology sector. Norman also began to explore art and working with wood as a medium. He pursued alternative studies to master this form of art and today he creates wood art in all forms ranging from sculpture to wall art and one of a kind studio furniture.
Norman continually challenges himself with new techniques and processes, which result in clean, contemporary works celebrating the natural organic forms surrounding us in our environment. His contemporary styled sculptural and wall art are a creative combination of subtle yet dramatic features where his unique designs incorporate unusual graphics found in vibrant woods. His sculpture and wall art are composed of figured woods with unique characteristics to which he infuses colour to depict an image he envisions.
Norman is a member of various art associations and has been the recipient of arts awards as well as participating in numerous juried art shows. His work has also been featured in the following books: "Studio Furniture: Today's Leading Woodworkers", "Wood Art Today 2" and "500 Cabinets" as well as various international magazines.
