Michael Childers: Having a Ball

January 20, 2018 – May 28, 2018

Palm Springs Art Museum, Clayes III Wing

Palm Springs Art Museum proudly presents

rarely-seen portraits by Michael

Childers that explore the artistic experimentation,

social shifts, and gender

play that defined the cultural spirit of the

1970s. As evident in these vibrant portraits,

the foundation for the emergence

of a transgender rights movement can

be traced to this cultural era as captured

by Childers. As a young photographer

for Andy Warhol’s Interview Magazine,

Childers’ work creates a documentary

photographic continuum for the

exhibition Andy Warhol: Prints from

the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer

and his Family Foundation. Images

of the enigmatic Warhol, members of

Warhol’s famous New York studio, The

Factory, and other avant-garde personalities

experimenting with gender and

dress animate and enliven this era—a

time before the AIDS epidemic, when

non-conforming sexuality was a gesture

of mischievous defiance rather than a

political act of survival.

In 1976 Childers photographed participants

at a Los Angeles drag ball.

Dubbed “Flaming Creatures,” this group

of thirty-eight revealing portraits captures

the amusing gender play during

an earlier, more innocent time. Through

an attention to gestures, costume, and

telling details, each of Childers’ photographs

capture both the persona and

the personalities of his subjects. Childers’

photographs of Warhol use subtle strategies

of gesture, props, and doubling

devices to go beyond the inscrutable

icon that the artist cultivated, bringing to

light his complicated personality below

the surface persona. Childers captured

The Factory’s infamous denizens in photographs

that uncover the multiple identities

at play when gender, personality,

persona, and performing roles combine.

Although more known for his images of

famous actors, writers, visual artists, and

performers, Childers brings the same

sensitivity to the drag ball’s unknown

merrymakers. Through Childers’ lens

these figures radiate a cheeky playfulness

as they experiment with makeup,

wedding dresses, tuxedos, and feather

boas to expose the artifice of traditional

gender identity and the joy of self-expression.

These images provide insight into a

history that precedes the public visibility

of lives and identities blurring traditional

gender definitions. As a participant in

both The Factory and the entertainment

culture of Los Angeles, Childers developed

a photographic language to

capture the radical potential of those

who dared to use their own bodies as

a way to reinvent our understanding of

gender. He enlarges our understanding

of the cultural revolution Warhol promoted

through photographs that inform and

delight as they remind us of the history

behind our current moment.

This exhibition is organized by Palm

Springs Art Museum from The Michael

Childers Archive and funded in part by

the Photography Collection Council.

by Levvy Carriker

John Thoman grew up in New Jersey where he

learned to love and appreciate art. It wasn’t

until he went to England in the fall of 2012 that

he was inspired to make his own. He went to

Liverpool to visit his mother’s grave site. He saw

the stained glass in the windows of St. Michael’s

Church in Liverpool. He was inspired with a

knowing that he would learn the art of creating

his own stained glass.

The following spring, he took lessons from Don Dietz

at the Desert Art Center for a couple of months

and is now creating his own designs and scenes.

He has been a featured artist, taped in his studio

by KESQ, CBS Local 2 News. They came to

John’s studio and included him in Eye On The

Desert. Outlaw Radio Show with Magic Matt

Alan & Producer Lori Downey, Jr. featured John

with his stained glass work commissioned for the

Radio Show.

In 2016, John taught himself to do stained glass

portraits. He has created stained glass logos

for local businesses in Palm Springs. John says

he feels very blessed to help support good

causes through his work, so he is a big giver. He

has helped raise money with his art for many

organizations, like Desert Aids Project, Desert

Arc, Wounded Warriors Project, Breast Cancer

Research, Bianca Rae Foundation, The Flower

Bank, Christopher’s Clubhouse, American

Outreach, ACT for Multiple Sclerosis, Painted

Hills Middle School, and Children’s Discovery

Museum of the Desert.

John’s pieces have sold in England, Ireland, Canada,

Mexico, and in the United States in Illinois, Texas,

Florida, Georgia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Utah,

New Jersey, New York, Tennessee, Louisiana,

South Carolina, Mississippi, and California. John is

a juried gallery member of the Desert Art Center.


Levvy: Where were you born?

John: Irvington, NJ

L: How did you learn that you loved stained glass art and

decide to create with it as art?

J: It was 2012 when I was visiting my mother's grave at St. Michael’s

Church, in Garston, Liverpool, England. I was putting

flowers on her grave on a nice sunny day. The church was having

church services. We went in and sat down, said a prayer,

and the glass from the windows were just gleaming onto me. I

walked up and had this feeling that I was supposed to do this

artform and make it my own. I wanted to do it my way. When

I got back to the states, I found Don Dietz at Desert Art Center,

here in Palm Springs, who taught me how to do stained glass.

“I was putting flowers on

my Mother’s grave on a

nice sunny day in Liverpool,

England. The St Michael’s

Church in Garston, was

having church services. We

went in and sat down, said

a prayer, and the glass

from the windows were just

gleaming onto me. I walked

up and had this feeling that I

was supposed to do this artform

and make it my own. I

wanted to do it my way.”

L: What was your first piece and what inspired it?

J: My first piece was a butterfly. I was at a coffee shop with

Michael Maler, the owner of Espresso Cielo. I told Michael

that I wanted to do some charity and he suggested DAP and

we sold over a hundred butterflies displayed in his coffee shop.

L: You do a lot of charity work. What are some of the other

organizations that you support?

J: Christopher's Clubhouse (founder Mika Moulton), The

Flower Bank, the Bianca Rae Foundation, Desert Arc, Breast

Cancer Awareness, ACT for MS, Painted Hills Middle School

in Desert Hot Springs, Wounded Warrior Project, American

Outreach, and the Children's Discovery Museum of the Desert.

L: Where do you sell your work?

J: You can find me on Facebook, Instagram, and the Desert

Art Center in Palm Springs.

L: Tell me about the Desert Art Center?

J: The Desert Art Center is the oldest community based art

organization in the Coachella Valley. Their mission is to stimulate,

educate, and nurture the visual arts through a collaborative

effort of membership programs, art education, and gallery

space for emerging and established artists. The DAC supports

children's art education through their Middle School Art Project,

LIVEMAGAZINETV 33


High School Art Show, Senior Scholarships, and Art Supply

Grants to teachers.

L: Do you sell and ship around the world?

J: There have been pieces sold in England, Ireland, Canada,

Mexico, Illinois, Texas, Florida, Georgia, Ohio, Pennsylvania,

Utah, New Jersey, New York, Tennessee, Louisiana, South Carolina,

Mississippi as well as California.

L: Do you have a favorite piece?

J: Many. But the one I really like is Sunrise Sunset. It is an

Arizona scene with cactus plants and a purple sky.

L: What local celebrities and national celebrities have you

done a portrait and/or general art for?

J: Locally, it would be Bianca Rae, Patrick Evans, Jeff

Stahl, Brooke Beare, Fred “The Hammer” Williamson,

Panda Alfrey, Chief Bryan Reyes, Valerie Kattz, and Alexis

Hunter. Nationally, I have done portraits, logos, and artwork

for Joe Mantegna, Dr. Drew, Magic Matt Allen, Mort

Downey, Jr., Lori Downey, Jr., Ellen DeGeneres, Frank

Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr. , Elvis Presley,

Steve Harvey, actress Joanna Pettet, and Nick Chavez.

I am currently in the beginning stages of creating portraits

for the Palm Springs Police Department of our fallen officers,

fallen police dog, as well as their badge. Also in the

works will be Jon Provost along with a tribute to the Beatles,

David Bowie, and U2.

L: What plans do you have in the future for your art?

J: I want to continue to learn more about stained glass and

do more portraits for people and charities.

L: Thank you for making time for this interview, John. It

has been a delight getting to know you and your art. It is

especially cool to learn that you support so many charities

with your gift.

GEOFFREY MARK'S NEW BIOGRAPHY IS A LOVE LETTER TO "ELLA!"

I had the pleasure of attending the book

signing last Saturday, March 3rd at Just

Fabulous! of author Geoffrey Mark’s fascinating

new centennial birthday edition

of ELLA, a biography of the legendary

Ella Fitzgerald.

Red Gurry

Mark has spent the past 25+ years

painstakingly researching the life, loves

and musical passions of the “First Lady

of Song” - working closely with family,

friends and the Ella Fitzgerald Charitable

Foundation.

Attendees were serenaded by Mark, who

sang several Ella classics. In between

the songs he told riveting stories about

Ella, her life and music. His back story

of how Ella came to win two of her 13

Grammy Awards for the 1960 live recording

Ella in Berlin, and for her single of

“Mack the Knife,” were highlights of his

presentation. Ella also won

two more of her Grammys at the first

Grammy Awards held in 1958; as well as

the first ASCAP Award in 1965, a Peabody

Award in 1983, the 1988 NAACP

Image Award for Lifetime Achievement

in 1988 and the Presidential Medal of

Freedom honor in 1992.

ELLA is Geoffrey Mark’s 4th book. His

previous works include the best-seller

Robert and Carol Teitelbaum


Mies Hora

Jeff, Manager of Just Fabulous

First Lady of Song: Ella Fitzgerald,

For the Record: The Lucy Book and

Ethel Merman: The Biggest Star on

Broadway; as well as The Family Affair

Cookbook.

Mark has been in show business his

entire life, having performed off-Broadway

and in summer stock. In addition

to being a singer and stand-up comedian,

he has hosted or co-hosted radio

series across the U.S., has written

for several stand-up comedians, and

writes and produces documentaries

and reality programs for television.

Geoffrey is a member of the legendary

Friar’s Club, and is the proud recipient

of an EMMY Award and a Grammy

Award nomination.

ELLA is a page-turner and a love-letter

to it’s subject. At 464 pages, it’s a

must-read. You can even purchase

a deluxe edition of the book which

includes an exclusive 2-CD set of 40

of Ella’s best performances!

Red Gurry

It was an honor attending this book

signing event, as it launches Geoffrey’s

national book tour and a series

of cabaret performances by Mark.

DESERT DENTAL

ALTERNATIVES

Bruno Lemay, DMD

acid to decalcify the tooth. It is called dental

plaque and it forms very quick after eating.

The better hygiene a person has, the less

they will have decay. It takes both sugar and

plaque to decay a tooth. The more you brush

and floss, the more plaque removed and the

less risk of decay.

Additionally, elderly patients also tend to have

more decay. It is more obvious with elderly

patients who are loosing their dexterity, and

in general they tend to eat more sweets more

often, and not brush as often.

There is also another component that needs

to be explained here. In the mouth there are

several types of bacteria. Some are responsible

for gum disease and some are responsible

for decay. Some people may have the best

hygiene and still have gum disease and some

who have the worst hygiene may not suffer

from gum disease at all. This is because they

do not have the bacteria responsible for gum

disease. Same thing for decay. Some people

will be more susceptible to decay then others

even if they eat just a little sugar and have

decent dental hygiene. That is because they

have that kind of bacteria in their mouth in a

higher rate then another person. But that is

not a reasonable excuse. More brushing

and plaque control with a topical fluoride

application daily, preferably with a special

personal tray made at the dental office will

help.

Very rarely a person will suffer from gum

disease and a high rate of decay. It is

generally one or the other. If someone has

a high rate of decay, in general they will

not suffer from gum disease like bone loss,

periodontal pockets and tooth mobility.

It is a proven fact though, that the better

the dental hygiene you have and the better

your diet is in terms of limiting sugar intake,

the healthier your gums and teeth will be.

So, it is not true that decay affect only

kids. As long as you have one tooth in your

mouth you are subject to get decay if you

leave dental plaque on it and eat sugar!

The best way to prevent that is to have

good dental hygiene at home and brushing

after any sugar intake, and to visit your

dentist 2 to 3 times a year.

Dr. Bruno Lemay

Do you think that dental cavities are

problems only for children?

It is a general belief that cavities are for kids

only. But in fact, cavities affect all ages!

The reason why cavities are more prevalent

in children is mainly the fact that they tend

to eat more sugar and have poor hygiene

habits. However, when looking at the cause

of decay, which is basically plaque with the

presence of sugar, it is easy to understand

that cavities can happen at any age even if

your mouth is full of crowns.

Of course there are some people who have

teeth that are softer then others and are

easier to decay but that affects only 1% of

the population. Basically any diet rich in

sugar will increase your chance of decay.

Soft drinks, candies and anything sweet

will have a potency to create decay in the

presence of dental plaque. Of course in

order to create decay there has to be the

bacteria that will transfer the sugar into

LYNDA CARTER

Honored with a Star on the

Hollywood Walk of Fame

LIVEMAGAZINETV

WITH SABASTIAN REICH

Lynda Carter an accomplished singer and star of stage, screen, and

television. She has a career that has lasted fifty years. Lynda is just as

popular today as she was forty years ago starring in Wonder Woman,

when she became the highest paid actress on television.

At the star ceremony, Lynda dazzled the fans with a beautiful black

dress and stunning hair and makeup by her glam squad, Nevin and

Lauren Miller, who traveled from DC with her. Lynda exited a black

Escalade with family and bodyguards and made her way through

adoring screaming fans, blockaded by barricades, and made her way

to us. There we were greeted by a hug and a kiss by the super star.

Helping Emcee Elton Gubler unveil the star was Lynda’s longtime

friend from acting class, CBS powerhouse Les Moonves, whom Lynda

had met after she won 1972 Miss World USA, and friend, Patty

Jenkins, Director of the blockbuster hit, Wonder Woman. A thousand

or so fans surrounded the barricades to see their favorite star receive

her honor. Some fans traveled from Costa Rica, Argentina, and all

the states to witness this special day. Our seats were in the family and

friends reserved section for a great viewing of this special day. Among

Lynda’s special cherished friends were BFF, the beautiful, Blaine Trump,

from Miami, in a floral blazer. The Emerson family. The lovely actress

-unchanged by time, Marilu Henner, Lynda’s publicist, the fabulous

Pete Sanders, Frank Ewing, Jerry and Linda Bruckheimer and more.

Lynda exited the event to her waiting car that whisked her off high in the

hills of Cold Water Canyon to the beautiful home of Lynda’s long time

friends, the Emersons. They hosted a wonderful catered luncheon at

their stunning hilltop home with an array of sumptuous food and drinks.

The Emersons spoke of their long-time friendship with the star and her

family and what it means to have a friend as dear as Lynda Carter.

Lynda Carter received the 2,632th star on the

historic Hollywood Walk of Fame.
