Art Exhibition – Infomaniac Bitches Got Talent


Welcome to our art exhibition (with complimentary wine and cheese and crudités) featuring the works of twelve talented Infomaniac Bitches.

Let's get started. And remember that some images can be enlarged by clicking.

MISS SCARLET
"I just love calligraphy... there is something quite sublime about watching fresh ink flowing from a pointed nib across virgin snow white paper.... and then having a bit of a flounce and a flourish."



Bitches: Scarlet’s calligraphy services are available simply by CLICKING HERE. After perusing her gallery, you’ll want to order something special!


WALLY
"When I am not busy Cooking-


and Canning-


Building Furniture-


Or Covering a Floor or Wall with Strange Objects-


I enjoy to smear Paint on a Canvas"...



MISTRESS MADDIE
"Contrary to popular belief the Mistress has more more talents then making a coke bottle disappear down my throat, pleasing the Lad, and downing gins, and well.....we'll leave the rest go. The first three pictures are some examples of my visual styling work from my day job. Everything from windows, to mannequins, to special shop designs I love working on it all. I have also recently gotten back into interior design freelancing with two jobs already lined up."




"Another of my talents was back in my drag days!!!! Many don't think of it as a talent, but the hair, make-up, and wardrobe has always brought me lots of joy, not to mention the shows! The transformation always was neat to watch. And of course the talent of boys also overlaps into this as well. I have since resigned from drag after 18 years, except for the occasional appearance."




BOXER...
"This is my shell gazing ball, made with a 10” diameter Styrofoam ball. The drab concrete pedestal that held the old gazing ball was painted a very bright turquoise (think Miami Vice.) It took 8 hours, 40 mini glue sticks and did not make a dent in the pile of shells I STILL have after nearly five years. These are shells that I bought online after a few drinkees and didn’t realize just how many shells are in a pound. I think it’s very cheery and is now occupying a previous dark corner in my yard."



KEVIN/KDNA (The Lisp)
"Madonna has always been a source of inspiration for me. I've done several of these digital portraits, based on popular iconic images of La Reine."




MS. FIRST NATIONS...
"It's collage madness here at Rancho FirstNations! I covered one wall of my dining room in old sheet music that I tore and applied using the age and the music as shades of color. The framed thing is another collage I done did using handlaid paper, old leaves, a potato, tempera, coffee, cornstarch and hide glue."



TOPHER...

"These are Christmas stockings I needle-pointed for two of my nieces and one for a nephew. The first (with the dog) is from a kit I purchased. The stocking with the sport figures on it was one that I created, painted on canvas, stitched and sewed until the wee hours of the holiday's eve. This depicts the "3 Wisemen" as a Baseball, Football and Basketball player on the field pointing to the Christmas star. The knots in the background are meant to represent people in the stands and one of them (and I won't tell you where this person is) is giving head to a peanut vendor. The Choir Angel is one I also created. The picture isn't detailed enough, but there are tiny teensy weensy lil seed pearlettes sewn with loving care, on the sleeves."




MISS ROSES...
"Proof of my talent for drinking coffee and wafting around in the pink fluffy dressing gown. Both of which I am champion at. Shame it's not a skill which leads to economic remuneration, but hey ho. Can't have everything. Unfortunately."



MITZI...
"Flange Dynasty Vase: I made this pot with my own fair hands when I was just a nipper at junior school. The lid was inspired by something I saw poking out of an elderly gentleman's rain-mac whilst playing in the park, all the other children screamed and ran away, I stayed and gave him marks out of ten."



"Cross-stitch pictures: I made these 12 years ago, when I gave up smoking, I found it very difficult coping with the withdrawal symptoms and I needed to do something with my hands, it took the tension away but I gained 2 stone sat on my arse, sewing and eating boiled sweets all day long."




PRINCESS
"The first photo is an old one from the "Alice in Wonderland" production which were cast shots that appeared in the programme. I made many of the costumes pictured last year for the show in December. If anyone missed the course of their production, they are welcome to visit “The Palais” and troll though the archives."


"The second one (below) is of my current work. They are of the boy and girl poppy chorus costumes for the "Wizard of Oz" which goes on in August. They were on display in the foyer of the auditorium on audition night as a preview.

I’m flat out daily with getting the costumes made. All six of the guy costumes are completed and I have six of the twenty four girl poppy outfits done which means I’m quarter the way through! YaY!"


Bitches: And that’s not ALL from the golden fingers of Princess! Visit his Stitch’n Steve blog to see his…

Handbags and totes…



Quilts…


And scarves…



CHICKORY (Ande)...
"I used to draw these raunchy cartoons back in college. I'm all tame now."


Bitches: To see more of Chickory’s folk art, drawings, paintings and illustrations, click here. And be sure to visit her Stuff You Can Buy page and her Etsy Shop.


THOM
Bitches: Mistress MJ has taken the liberty of writing Thom’s blurb as he isn’t one to “blow his own horn” and, in my opinion he is an incredibly gifted man as you’ll find out for yourself by listening here…



Thom’s music induces a state of rapture in Mistress MJ and I’ve enjoyed hours of listening pleasure from his CD. You can experience that same elation by purchasing a CD directly from Thom. It’s cheaper than drugs and gets you just as high! Click here for his email address.

You can also purchase a download-only compilation of Thom’s music here.

And did I mention Thom’s also an accomplished photographer?



See more of Thom’s creative output on his Flickr page and visit his online shop to purchase a beautiful print.

We hope you’ll stay and mingle with our artistes.

We encourage you to become a patron of the arts and support those Bitches who market their works.

And don’t you agree that Infomaniac Bitches Got Talent?

    1. Miss Scarlet, your skill with a nib and quill are truly magnificent. I love the ones that you do with the multi coloured inks and gold or silver highlights... but you know that anyway...

      Get over to Miss Scarlet's Caligraphy place and check out her work bitches. You wont be sorry that you did!

  4. I am speechless!

    *applauses frantically*

    Bravissimo. I'm... I'm... I'm speechless.

    I've loved calligraphy since my dad made genealogic trees as a second job so to make end meet, and I've always been fascinated by this art form.

    Oh Dear Wally, I'd like to have a taste of your cans!!! Canning is a tradition at our house.

    Maddie YOU ARE FABULOUS. What a smile! I've always wanted to try the "drag thing" but never found the guts to take the plonge...

    Ms Nation, I want your music wall!

    and Thom: love love love. You have got yourself a new fan!

    I just can't stop scrolling up and down and up and down and... or am I really scrolling?!?

    Pricess, Chickory, Kevin, Mitzi, Topher, Boxer... I bow before you, dear bitches!

    And PINK is definitely YOUR COLOR, Roses! ;)

    Love you all!
    Hugs
    Jon

    1. Your homage to musicality in your wonder wall is fantastic Ms Nations... I like that you used all natural stuff in your collage work too. But then why should i be surprised when you can make your own breadd from home made greek yoghurt...

  7. Scarlet: I've been doing calligraphy since 1978. Your work is so above and beyond my skill level it's pitiful. My God, you are amazing!!!! That's gorgeous stuff! Next you'll tell me you cut your own pens. *kneels to kiss hem of skirt*

  8. All truly amazingly talented bitches!

    Miss Roses installation performance piece however, tore through my defenses and wrecked all sensibilities.

    I cried.

    1. I love the keys and coin piece Wally.
      I had a stack of keys I turned into a hanging mobile some years back... they make a magical tinkling sound when the wind hits them... or someone brushes past them...

      i didn't know that you painted...Bravo!

    2. Is that a self portrait of the artiste perchance?

    3. Indeed, her use of the cup and the bathrobe sent shivers down my spine.

    4. I'm in love with the keys and coins thing. It would be cool to do a whole entryway or stairs like that!

  9. I am totally stunned by the amount of sheer talent that you bitches have. Congratulations for putting your stuff out there on show for all to see and admire and in my case be in awe of...
    You are all such creative souls...

    And Speaking of creative souls... A hearty round of applause to MJ for pulling this post together...

    I'm clickerating again to bliss out on Thombeau's cool track...

    1. Your right dear Pricess, after the dashboard change, do we think our hostess is passed out drunk somewhere, or had herself commited?

  10. WOW ....
    You bitches are AH-MAZING!
    I'm enthralled by ALL of you!

  12. Oh just what I need, more talent on the payroll! Scarlet's talents I could realy use for my party invites, and special signs around the Casa, Princess I could use since I don't sew to make clothing, and I dream of a seashell headpiece one day, so I so need Boxer!!! How cool is that? Now on a design side of things, Wally and Nations have used some way cool things to freshen a room and recycle old items and make new again!I love that! Now thats talent, and being creative! And we also know Wally, my dear, also is very talented with the quickest strawberry pickin in all the east and south, and in the nude too I might add! And Thom, besides being just fabulous has really moved me!!! But one of the real talents here has got to be Roses!!!! As a lounger myself, it takes a real talent, to chose the right fluffy robe, and just right tasting coffee, not to mention selection of the just perfect mug to use. And then to pull it together there is the position in which to lounge in. If you notice, Roses use much expression, like in the eyes, saying "What mischief should I cause at the House of Infomanic today?" and then notice the slight.................

  13. Have pity on MJ, having been exposed to all this kunst she's bound to be fatigued. She'll be lying down in a darkened room with cucumber slices over her eyes, listening to an aria from Madam Butterfly.

    THIS!

    A plethora of particularly potent, perspicacious, perfectly predominant proficency!

  15. Wow, this is an amazing collection of talent. I did something with keys and foreign coins once, but not to the degree Wally did. I love that. I love them all. Nicely done MJ!
