3 Cheers For Art!!!

This weekend, my synagogue held an art auction. I went to work on Saturday night and have a night out on the town. I invited my brother, Nebur, to come and join me if he had time. We had a blast. We ate some good food, drank some good wine and saw lots of amazing pieces of art and my brother ended up purchasing a few pieces. He bought 2 legal art pieces by Barry Leighton- Jones.

He bought two very cool pieces by Alexander Calder. Here they are:

He also bought a piece by Juan Miró called Escultor, Italy:

For my mother he bought Holiday Circle, by Ebgi:

The best piece that he bought though, in my humble opinion, is the one he bought FOR ME!!! It is Icarus from the Jazz Series. Here is my beautiful new acquisition:
