hey’re called ‘The Quiet Men’, fiveIrish artists with the streets ofLondon, England, beneath theirfeet, but with their identity yet rooted
in Ireland. They and their families follow-
ed millions of their countrymen in emi-grating to England, their closest neigh-bor, to find opportunity. A large propor-tion finished their journeys in London,where many found themselves on soci-ety’s margin in a mutual mistrust forged
by the long and tortured history between
the two nations.
These five London Irish painters loudlybroke their quietude in 2009 with a rous

ing collective exhibit of their works evok

ing the outsiders’ life in England’s capital
city.That exhibit, which the
 Irish Times
newspaper called “powerful work,” debuts
in the United States at the VillanovaUniversity Art Gallery. “The Quiet Men– London Irish Painters” opened Friday,August 20. An artists’ reception willtake place Friday,
September 10,
from5 to 7 p.m. in the Art Gallery in the
Connelly Center on the Villanova campus.
London Irish artist Brian Whelan willdiscuss the works in a presentation
beginning at 4 p.m. Both events are freeand open to the public. The exhibit con

to October 6.
“The first major contemporary London
Irish visual art exhibition to explorethe experience of Irish immigrants toBritain in the 20th century,” is howLondon’s largest gallery described oneof its top attractions of 2009.
Of the five Irish London painters, three
emigrated from Ireland; one was bornin west London of Irish parents; whilethe fifth, a third generation Irishman inEngland, works and was educated inthe capital city.
The 1970s and 80s, when all the artists
in this exhibit were building new livesin London, became an especially diffi-

welcomes
a very special
concert to its stage on Wednes-
day,
September 22.
Internation-
al cabaret artist Mark Nadler
will perform with the acclaimedNew York Pops in a tribute concert honoringThe Mann’s 75 years of presenting live music

will highlight the romantic sounds of Broad
-way circa 1935 when the show biz tradition
of grand musical the-
ater was at its pinnacle.
1935 also marks theyear that The Mann’s
predecessor, The Robin
Hood Dell, was incor-poratedand beganits own remarkabletradition, which con-
tinues today, of show-
casing artists to new
audiences from across
the region.
“Legendary compos

like Irving Berlin, Cole
Porter, George Gershwin,
Harry Warren, Duke
Ellington, Noël Coward
and so many othersof their time madesuch an impressionboth then and now.They certainly influ-
enced my life, and it’s
an honor for me tobring their extraordi-nary
work to Philadel
-phia along with (con-ductor)
Steven Reineke
and the New York Pops
during this special,commemorative sea-s
on at The Mann,” said
Nadler.
Fittingly, the evening
of musical favorites will
end with a spectacu-lar fireworks display.

evi Strauss and Tiffany rarely step out together, but if
local entrepreneurs have their way, that Jeans and Jewel
combination will be the mainstay at a, sophisticated newstyle “night on the town,” Labor Day weekend.A unique entertainment concept, the event, Jeans andJewels...GC2010, produced by Guilted Cage EntertainmentGroup, takes all the elements of a sophisticated night onthe town—dinner, a concert, dancing and puts them underone roof. No wrangling for tickets for a hot act, no more
making reservations at a crowded restaurant, no more wait
-ing in line at the newest club.... and no more searching fora parking space.
You can have it all at Jeans and Jewels...GC2010 to be held
at The Drexel Brook Club, 4700 Drexel Brook Road, DrexelHill, Friday,
September 3,
from 8 p.m. - 1 a.m. The eventfeatures the mesmerizing electric violinist Ken Ford, sump-t
uous dinner; open bar; cigar and cognac bar; DJ Corey, DST
Hatch with R&B and top 40; a designer jean showcase byRenee Bolden, a designer jewelry showcase by Reena and
Kayla Faust, salsa showcase, body painting by Lawren Alicefrom Gallery ML and a walk down the red carpet with photo
shoot—“You are the STAR!”The Ken Ford Concert begins at 9 p.m. Visit www.guilt-edcage.com for ticket sales, directions and complete lineup of events.The one-stop night out is the brainchild of BeverlyChandran and Mary Arthur, two seasoned entrepreneurs,who realized that many of their professional friends want-ed to enjoy a night out but had little time to plan the per-fect date night, or girls’ night out together. Plus, Chandran
noted, “The cost of going out can get to be quite expensivewhen you add up an $85 concert ticket, $60 for dinner, club
admission, and, of course, parking. Who has the time, money
or patience to run from venue-to-venue after working suchlong hours? You are talking about $200 for a single person
when you include cocktails and champagne. And even more
if you purchase a new outfit.”“I thought, well why not bring all of this together in aluxurious setting for one price,” says Mary, Beverly’s busi-ness partner. “Our night includes an astounding musicaltalent, delicious food, dancing, body painting, and other
surprises for $125, of which a portion of the ticket sales will
be donated to a nonprofit. A great bargain when you con-sider all the above, the good vibes and networking oppor-tunities! You don’t want to miss this fabulous event. It willbe a captivating experience!”
As U tube videos attest, Ken Ford is an exciting whirlwind
of energy and extraordinary skill. The Atlanta-based talentbrings an audience to its feet with his sophisticatedinter-
pretation of jazz, R&B and classical music. Classically train
-
ed, Ford got his start in some of Atlanta’s hottest jazz clubs
where he developed the unique style that has bought him
to the attention of producers and music aficionados nation-
wide. Visit www.KenFord.net.The Jeans and Jewels night out also has a purpose. Part
of the proceeds benefit The Campaign for Working Families
(CWF), a non-profit organization committed to solving urban
problems in the Philadelphia region. CWF completed11,653 tax returns of which 591were completed for smallbusiness owners. CWF help-ed collect over $22 millionin refunds this year for peo-ple who live in the Philadel-phia area.
