One-year ago, Artist Emily Hayner and her guitarist/songwriter husband Jeff, moved to Hollywood from Virginia. This little ditty is going to focus on Emily (we’ll get to Jeff in a future installment). As a child Emily was forever with her trusty sketch-pad. In high-school she excelled in art, however, when it came time for college, […]
I recently returned from a visit to New Orleans’ French Quarter. I was struck by some similarities to our very own Downtown Hollywood. Both communities are culturally diverse; both are easy to navigate by foot and both have an abundance of dining options, art galleries and bars… That said, the French Quarter rocks it daily/nightly—it’s […]

Hear Ye Hollywood! Have you heard the one about the old bull and the young bull? Never mind. But it does bring to mind the fact that two of our most distinguished drop-ins have received top honors from members of the highfalutin media!

Hey Hollywood, there’s a new gallery in town “The Doris White Art N Form Gallery” at 120 S. 20th Avenue (between Hollywood Blvd. & Harrison). Doris and her husband Henry are both artists who encompass but go beyond traditional, creating what I fondly call Prac-App-Art (practical, applicational art)–painted purses and handmade wooden jewelry boxes (oh they […]
