The dragon boat will be featured on the 12 ounce versions. The mintage will be 275 pieces in 12 ounce silver and only 6 pieces in 12 ounce gold proofs.

The pandas can be purchased at the CoinExpo Santa Clara coin show, but for the many people who can't attend the show in California, they can pre-order online and have them shipped.

Items from "Wawapek", the Long Island estate home of New York's historic de Forest family, will be auctioned July 25-26

Wendell Castle black leather crescent rocker.

Pair of gilt metal mounted porcelain covered urns.

Polychrome Acoma olla, circa 1904, with bands of checkerboard decoration in black enclosing red abstract design.

Copper spread wing eagle weathervane, made in New England in the 19th or 20th century.

Continental 19th century inlaid walnut music box on stand, together with nine musical cylinders.

“Wawapek” was the Queen Anne-style home of the de Forests, a family so deeply rooted in New York history it dates back 300 years to the days of the Huguenots.

These items are a trove that’s rich in family lore and New York history. Robert de Forest, who built the home, was a major philanthropist and civic leader in New York City.”

— John Nye

BLOOMFIELD, N.J., UNITED STATES, July 13, 2018 / — BLOOMFIELD, N.J. – Items from the estate home in Cold Spring Harbor, Long Island known as “Wawapek” – the Queen Anne-style residence of the de Forests, a family so deeply rooted in New York history it dates back 300 years to the days of the early Huguenot settlers in Manhattan – will come up for bid in a two-day sale planned for July 25-26 by Nye & Company Auctioneers.

The auction will be held in Nye & Company’s gallery, located at 20 Beach Street in Bloomfield. The full catalog is available for viewing now, at, as well as on the internet bidding platforms and The Wednesday, July 25th session will have live and internet bidding. The Thursday, July 26th session will be internet only.

Many of the items in “Wawapek” – a stately Gilded Age mansion built in 1897 and occupied by the de Forest family up until this year – will be in the sale, to include yachting trophies, Native American pots and baskets, American glass, and European and Mexican pottery (some of which was exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where Robert de Forest served as president).

Also from the de Forest estate will be numerous period furniture pieces (much of it New York in origin), steamer trunks (to include examples by Louis Vuitton, Goyard and others), and even a rare and simple pine box that Tiffany & Company used as a shipping crate that bears their label. An aside: the de Forests were close friends with Louis C. Tiffany and called him “Uncle Louis”.

“A great deal of the de Forests’ collection was stashed away in ‘Wawapek’ and shows condition commensurate with being forgotten in the attic,” said John Nye of Nye & Company Auctioneers, “but regardless, these items are a trove that’s rich in family lore and New York history. Robert de Forest, who built the home, was a major philanthropist and civic leader in New York City.”

While the de Forest estate is the auction’s undisputed headliner, it’s not all that’s in the sale. Also up for bid will be original calendar art by Howard Pyle (Am., 1853-1911), signed “H. Pyle” lower left and depicting a woman with a jug and ravens, plus 11 loose calendar pages, to include the page being sold; and a pair of seven-light blackamoor torcheres (stands for holding lamps).

Also being sold, for fans of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, are pieces of Baroque-style furniture that were previously in the wine room of the home of “Mighty Max” Weinberg (Am., b. 1951), the longtime drummer for the E Street band and bandleader for Conan O’Brien on both of O’Brien’s late-night shows. The wine room is one of Weinberg’s favorite places in the home.

Furniture pulled from “Wawapek” will feature a Wendell Castle black leather crescent rocker, a Queen Anne gumwood kasten made in the 18th century in New York (possibly Long Island), a circa 1815 Neoclassical mahoganized recamier (fainting couch) probably made in New York, and a Continental inlaid walnut music box on a stand, in working condition with extra cylinders.

Decorative accessories from “Wawapek” will include a copper spread wing eagle weathervane, an English late 18th century George III mahogany dual barometer/thermometer, a floral-decorated Delft garniture set attributed to Justus Brouwer (Dutch, active 1739-1775), and a pair of 19th or 20th century yellow-brown glazed European wine jugs, probably handcrafted in France.

Native American objects from the de Forest estate will feature a pair of fine Trios (or Zia) polychrome storage jars, an oval Pomo basket with shell decoration and a Southwest Indian coil basket, circa 1900, with geometric four-point stepped star design. Also sold will be a large size Gothic doll house, a Larchmont Yacht Club 1913 season picnic hamper and an oil on canvas portrait of Cornelius Van Tromp (1620-1691), with an illegible inscription and “Amsterdam”.

The de Forest family’s U.S. history can be traced to Jesse de Forest (1576-1624), the leader of a group of Walloon Huguenots who fled Europe and religious persecution. They emigrated to New York, where de Forest’s plan was to found New-Belgium, so the group could peacefully practice their Reformed Protestant Christianity. He sought permission from the Dutch to establish a colony in what is now New York City and was granted permission in 1624. That year a group of sixty families of Walloons and Dutch Protestants settled in what they called New Amsterdam.

Fast forward to Robert W. De Forest (1848-1931), Jesse’s descendant, who was general counsel for the Central Railroad from 1874-1924 and director of the New York & Long Branch railroad, All-America Cables and the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company. He was New York City’s first Tenement House Commissioner and became the president of the newly formed National Housing Association of New York in 1910. De Forest was also president of the American Red Cross, the Russell Sage Foundation and the Metropolitan Museum of Art (1913-1931). De Forest and his wife, the former Emily Johnston, built the American wing of the museum. Ms. Johnston was the daughter of the Met’s first president and co-founder, John Taylor Johnston (1820-1893).

Start times both days will be 10 am Eastern. Phone and absentee bids will be accepted for day one of the auction. Previews will be held in the Bloomfield gallery Monday-Friday, July 16-20, from 10-4; Sunday, July 22nd, from noon-4 pm; and Monday-Thursday, July 23-26, from 10-4.
John Nye had a long and fruitful career at Sotheby’s before he and his wife, Kathleen, acquired Dawson’s in 2003 and started Dawson & Nye. With the move to Bloomfield seven years later, they renamed the business to Nye & Company (Auctioneers, Appraisers, Antiques). The firm is nationwide, but the vast bulk of the business comes from trusts and estates in the tri-state area.

Successful photographer helps others find their passion by teaching free classes at Texas State University.

SARASOTA, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, July 12, 2018 / — Chaitanya Cherukuri has always had a love of photographs and photography. Cherukuri’s natural ability for the art started as a child. He was always taking pictures and capturing special moments for his family. When he got older, his interest in photography turned into a passion. Cherukuri learned everything he could about the art form and has found his own style throughout years of practice.

Now, Chaitanya Cherukuri is going to be sharing that passion with the students of Texas State University. Cherukuri will be offering a free class at the school. He is excited to be able to help students learn more about what he has spent a lifetime getting acquainted with.

A Passion for Photography

Photography is everywhere. Everything has the potential to be an image that someone needs. Having a passion for capturing the perfect moment is an exhilarating thrill that people need in their lives. Therefore, having a basic understanding of photography helps people progress in different areas of business.

“Photography has helped me figure out how to see the world differently,” Cherukuri said. “It’s given me the ability to see something for what it is, but also for what it could be. Art makes ordinary things beautiful.”

This philosophy has helped shape Chaitanya Cherukuri’s beliefs, making photography a cornerstone of his life.

Texas State University Students

Texas State University has a diverse student body. There are many students who hope to do many unique things with their life. Chaitanya Cherukuri knows that this class, which focuses on the basics of photography can help them achieve those goals.

Regardless of the field, a student finds themselves in, being able to see something different than everyone else is important. Photography basics teach that and help people visualize what they want. Cherukuri explains that if he wants to get a shot, he must picture it in his mind, to find it in the world. There are many different factors that play into creating the shot and a photographer must decode all those elements. After that, they need to be patient, waiting for the right time for those elements to all come together.

Besides photography, the critical thinking skills involved in photography is what Chaitanya Cherukuri hopes students take out of his class. He wants students to be able to apply those skills to their everyday lives. That way, they’ll have experience in creating the extraordinary out of what everyone else thinks of as ordinary.

Teaching for Free

People are wondering why Chaitanya Cherukuri is teaching this class for free. After all, Cherukuri is a powerful photographer with a useful message. It seems strange to people that he wouldn’t charge for the class.

Chaitanya Cherukuri’s response is that he wants to give people the opportunity to follow their dreams. He knows how hard it is to make it out in the world, especially if the student dreams of being any kind of artist. While there are more opportunities than ever for photographers, writers, and artists, money doesn’t start rolling in overnight. It’s still difficult to find the niche that’s going to feed both body and passion. So, Chaitanya Cherukuri wants to share his experience with future generations, to encourage students to follow their dreams.

To close, Chaitanya Cherukuri is looking forward to sharing his passion with those who have an interest in photography. Plus, he believes that the life skills he has amassed through his interest can help university students in many areas. After all, Chaitanya Cherukuri believes life is an adventure…capture it before it’s gone.

Exhibit by Aberson Presents Holly Addi | Currant | Opens 07.12.2018 6 until 8 PM

Holly Addi presents a show of new works titled Currant featuring her abstract paintings.

TULSA, OK, USA, July 11, 2018 / — Exhibit by Aberson presents
Holly Addi | Currant
3524B S. Peoria, Tulsa, OK
July 12th – August 6th, 2018
Available online and in-store

Exhibit by Aberson is pleased to present an exhibition entitled ‘Currant’ with works by Holly Addi opening Thursday, July 12th from 6 until 8 PM at Exhibit by Aberson located at 3524B S Peoria Avenue, Tulsa OK 74105.

Salt Lake City-based painter, Holly Addi sees beauty in the imperfect. Her work is based on life’s imperfections and how it relates back to beauty and the magical phenomenon how it all works together. “My art style is ‘composition of imperfectionism’ and how to embrace the wonder, rather than question it; the good, the bad, the evil, the weeds, the flowers, all of it. And at the end, you look at it, and see beauty through it all,” she explains.

A creative since childhood, Addi went on to study Psychology at the University of Utah. She continued to paint throughout this time, but viewed her studies as a necessary part of her future artistic life, stating, “Psychology is the backbone of the artist’s mind.” In her post-collegiate life, Addi opened a high-end floral shop which proved her eye for composition within the visual and tactile art of flower arrangement. Despite the nationally-recognized success, she chose to “get back to her roots” and paint full time rather than expand the business further after 15 years. That decision is one she hopes inspires other talented creatives, “I think it is really important as an artist to nurture your talent and not let anyone turn that light off. Art takes digging deep.”

Addi’s works examine energy, space, and landscape through tempered abstraction. By applying abstraction, she constructs intense personal moments masterfully created by means of rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal, luring the viewer round and round in circles. Often about her audience’s contact with architecture and basic living elements; energy (heat, light, water), space and landscape are examined in less obvious ways. By not referencing specific recognizable forms, Addi deconstructs in order to shift meaning and create open interpretation for the viewer.

For all press inquiries and information, please contact Kim Fonder at or call the gallery at (918) 740-1054. Please join the conversation with Exhibit by Aberson on Facebook (@aberson.exhibits), Instagram (@exhibitbyaberson), Pinterest (@abersonexhibits), Artsy (exhibit-by-aberson) and 1stDibs (@exhibit-by-aberson).

The focus of the event was to make women feel more confident about themselves, both physically and mentally. The event was designed to help all attendees get rid of any kind of self-doubt that they might have and feel empowered from within themselves.

The event was filled with fun activities for which the participants were an integral part of the event as they worked out alongside the founder of Booty Bands, Danita Young. Danita was present to give a strong message and remarked on the impact that she strived to create in women’s lives with special programs just like this.

"There is no need to be perfect to inspire others, Let others be inspired with how you deal with your Imperfections" Danita said. “The journey is not about becoming a different person, instead it is loving yourself for right now.”

As expected, women of all ages showed up to participate in the event and as promised each participant was handed out a Booty Band of their own to workout with – a tradition that is repeated every year by the company.

The event was in alignment with the Booty Bands core values which is devoted to empowering woman and making the female community stronger. Keeping the spirit alive, the participants were asked to focus on the areas of their lives they would like to improve.

Artist Marian Flahavin to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

SPOKANE, WASHINGTON, UNITED STATES, July 9, 2018 / — Portraiture captures a likeness but great portraits capture life, as though at any moment the figure might arch its neck and say "Hello".

Marian Flahavin is a fine artist specializing primarily in portraiture in pastel, oil and bronze.

Marian describes herself as a “people painter.” The life in them that's what I'm after, the life that makes them who they are.

“I find that I really don't enjoy paintings without figures included,” says Marian. “I like things that do something, not just stand there. I paint life. That basically what I've always been after, a sense of motion, like they were going to move at any point and say something to me. I kind of talk to them, and when they start to talk back that’s when I know I’m done.”

Marian is especially adept at portraiture of children. Many of Marian’s clients are parents and grandparents who share a desire to capture their child at a certain age with all the hope and wonder still in their eyes and preserve how they looked at that time.

“I know I’m not supposed to, but I always start with the eyes. The eyes establish their presence, their personhood, and I work around that,” says Marian. “I'm reaching for the life inside them and what makes them who they are, rather than just a kid.”

Marian says painting for the approval of one client can be just as terrifying as a gallery opening. She says that’s she loves about it: the challenge.

“It's seeing if I can do it. That's kind of what drives me to start it. Literally my fingers itch to get going, to start something,” says Marian. “There are times when you feel like you're working in the dark and you don't know whether it's working and you don't have anyone to ask to find out. And you just have to keep fiddling away with it and then hope that it meets what they're expecting.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Marian Flahavin in an interview with Jim Masters on July 11th at 12pm EDT.

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio.

For backyard chicken farmers and gardeners who want to collect smiles along with their eggs and produce.

ROCKWALL, TX, USA, July 6, 2018 / — Nikki Stewart, owner, designer, and creator from Narley and Chikki, is releasing the brand new Farmhouse Fresh Collection, and each product will be individually made by Nikki and her husband, Charley. The Farmhouse Fresh Collection is being released on July 6th.

Narley and Chikki is known for helping people who long for a simpler time so they can decorate their homes and yards with items that inspire them to slow down and take time to enjoy life.

For the first time, Nikki has created an entire product line with the focus of backyard chicken farmers and gardeners. The collection includes two styles of aprons, and several backyard and chicken coop signs that will add some whimsy to your yard.

The aprons are designed to be practical and help with the collection of eggs and garden produce by, when the need arises, easily converting from a simple apron to a gathering apron. Made from old-fashioned cotton ticking material, these aprons also showcase a nostalgic feel that harkens back to a time when life was less chaotic.

The signs are cut from reclaimed rustic wood by Charley and painted and hand-lettered by Nikki with fun sayings that hopefully bring a smile to the face of the reader. They are sealed for outdoor use, so the enjoyments will last for years to come.

“We have had our chickens for less than a year,” Nikki said. “But they have made such a huge impact on our lives, and the lives of our neighbors (in the way of free eggs), that we felt we needed to provide products that other chicken lovers would find helpful and fun.”

The Farmhouse Fresh Collection ranges in price from $29 to $65 and will be exclusively sold on where the limited products are expected to sell out by the end of the season.

Nikki is excited to welcome her fans to her the new handmade product line collection.

David Lawrence Rare Coins purchases 1804 Draped Bust Dollar coin on behalf of partner Dell Loy Hansen for $2.64 million

The world-famous 1804 Draped Bust dollar is one of the hobby’s most famous rarities and is highly coveted by collectors.

For the past three years Dell Loy Hansen has been building a world-class U.S. coin collection to rival the Eliasberg Collection.

Dell Loy Hansen is a lifelong coin collector, businessman and owner of the Real Salt Lake major league soccer team in Salt Lake City, Utah.

David Lawrence Rare Coins, based in Virginia Beach, Va., purchased the coin on behalf of partner Dell Loy Hansen.

Known as the King of American coins, it's one of only fifteen known examples. Mr. Hansen is a lifelong coin collector and prominent Salt Lake City businessman.

We were ecstatic to be part of the purchase of such a legendary numismatic rarity. We had discussed the coin prior to the event but the decision to make an offer was made minutes prior to purchase. ”

— John Brush

VIRGINIA BEACH, VA., UNITED STATES, July 6, 2018 / — VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – David Lawrence Rare Coins has acquired one of only fifteen known examples of the world-famous 1804 Draped Bust Dollar – known as the “King of American Coins” – on behalf of a partner, Dell Loy Hansen. Mr. Hansen is a lifelong coin collector, businessman and owner of the Real Salt Lake major league soccer team in Salt Lake City, Utah.
The purchase was made June 14th at a numismatic event in California. “We were ecstatic to be part of the purchase of such a legendary numismatic rarity,” said John Brush, President of David Lawrence Rare Coins. We had discussed the coin prior to the event but the decision to make an offer was literally made minutes prior to the actual purchase. We felt we made the right choice.”
Mr. Brush added, “With the previous prices from 2008 and 2013 being at $3.7 million and $3.8 million, we felt it would be a bargain if we could purchase the dollar somewhere below the $3 million mark.” The coin had condition going for it; it was graded highly at Proof 62 by PCGS.
The 1804 Draped Bust Dollar is one of only eight Class I 1804 dollars. It was struck in the mid-1830s as part of special sets that were given as diplomatic gifts. Known as the Mickley-Hawn-Queller specimen, the piece has a lengthy history that can be traced to 1847 or even longer ago.
Historically, the 1804 dollar has long been considered the world’s most valuable coin. However, other contenders have entered the market in recent years, amongst them a 1933 Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle, a coin of dubious legal origin that sold for $7.59 million in 2002. Still, the 1804 dollar is one of the hobby’s most famous rarities and is highly coveted by collectors worldwide.
In addition to being a Salt Lake City businessman, owner of the Real Salt Lake and an avid coin collector, Dell Loy Hansen is a partner with John Brush at David Lawrence Rare Coins. For the past three years he has been building a world-class coin cabinet to rival the Eliasberg Collection of U.S. coins. The 1804 dollar coin was an addition many observers thought would elude him.
But his patience was rewarded with this acquisition, and he obtained the coin at a significant value. “This is another important piece for our ‘Quest for Eliasberg,’ and we are excited to add it to the collection,” Mr. Hansen said. “With the curatorial help of John Brush and the team at DLRC, the collection now contains over 10,000 coins. Many of them are the finest graded.”
Second only to the National Numismatic Collection at the Smithsonian Institution, the D.L. Hansen Collection now surpasses in quality (according to the PCGS Set Registry) the collection of Louis Eliasberg and is considered by many to be the greatest U.S. coin collection of all time.
David Lawrence Rare Coins was founded in 1979 by David Lawrence Feigenbaum, in a spare bedroom. A passionate collector his entire life, he made the jump to dealing when his collecting desires surpassed his limited professor’s budget. David passed away after a long battle with Lou Gehrig’s Disease and David’s son, John Feigenbaum, oversaw the company's growth until 2015.
In August of 2015, John became the Publisher of the CDN Publishing and passed operations of David Lawrence Rare Coins to John Brush, who today directs the company with the help of an extremely dedicated staff of 20 employees. The management team has a cumulative total of over 80 years with the company and the team of numismatists has over 100 years of total experience.
They are passionate about all aspects of coin collecting. Whether a coin is valued at $5, $50 or $5 million, they are there to serve the collector with the best quality, service, and price possible. Brush and his staff are also focused on bringing the latest technological advances to the hobby.
The company has handled many legendary rarities of United States numismatics, including the finest certified 1796 No Pole Liberty Cap Half Cent, two examples of the 1894-S Barber Dime, a gem 1876-CC Twenty Cent Piece, the finest known 1901-S Barber Quarter, three of the twelve known 1870-S Seated Dollars, the historic 1815 $5 Gold Half Eagle, one of the only two known 1825/4 $5 Gold Half Eagles, and the Mickley-Hawn-Queller 1804 Proof Draped Bust Dollar.
