styckx: saintwrathchild: The Lennon show will benefit Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County, which provides food to non-profit organizations in Darien, Greenwich, New Canaan, Norwalk, Stamford and Wilton.
Okay, Yoko, you catch a lot of flack, but this is a pretty classy move.

(It will not benefit from the sales of the works, but from the donations collected at the door. Admission is free, but a $2 donation is requested.)
Oh fer fark's sake.

I thought I read into that wrong when I read the article.. Glad to see I apparently read it right.

ie: She's a farking conceptual artist.


See what I did there? I added the bold bit, without which it wouldn't sell. The line underlines that fact. Now it's art. That'll be $25000 please.

Just spotted this interview with Julian Lennon yesterday. At the 5:50 mark, they talk about how after John Lennon died, Yoko forced Julian to buy his own dad's possessions at auction.

Stay classy, Yoko.

Dear Fark community:

The Artwork of John Lennon exhibition and sale, opening this weekend in Stamford, is -fraud-.

The Yoko Ono sponsored Artwork of John Lennon exhibition and sale, operated by her associates Legacy Fine Art & Production Inc., consists of non-disclosed posthumously [after 1986] colorized and altered forgeries with counterfeit embossed John Lennon signatures, counterfeit John Lennon chop-mark signatures in bogus numbered editions misrepresented as original works of visual art ie., lithographs, serigraphs and etchings and falsely attributed to a dead John Lennon [d 1980].

The dead don't posthumously create artwork, much less sign and number.

Yoko Ono and her business associates Legacy Fine Art & Productions Inc. have no shame.

Yet, in the Stamford Advocate's published November 27, 2012 "Lennon exhibition aims to draw fans, raise funds for local charity" article by Christina Hennessy, the reporter wrote: "Those drawings, along with other pieces of Lennon's artwork created from the early 1960s to his death in 1980, are expected to be on display Friday, Nov. 30, to Sunday, Dec. 2, at the Stamford Hilton Hotel."

So, despite being notified by a November 19, 2012 email to these contentious issues of authenticity, some 9 days ago, Stamford Advocate Christina Hennessy repeated, in writing nine days later in a Stamford Advocate published article, propaganda used to mask a fraud.

Very troubling.

Stamford Advocate Christina Hennessy may someday argue she was misled and that in hindsight admit she was not a connoisseur, but that would be an explanation, not an excuse. Sadly that would be of little consolation to all those potential victims in your Stamford community when they find out someday in the future that they paid out hundreds to thousands of dollars of their hard-earned money for non-disclosed posthumous [after 1986] colorized and altered forgeries in bogus numbered editions misrepresented as original works of visual art ie., lithographs, serigraphs and etchings and falsely attributed to a dead John Lennon [d 1980].

And to think, the Stamford Advocate published an article, repeating that propaganda and with or without intent encouraging the Stamford community to go.

Then to add insult to injury, Yoko Ono and her business associates Legacy Fine Art & Production Inc. are using the Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County's reputation and good-will in the community to further mask their fraud so Yoko Ono and Legacy Fine Art & Production Inc. can line their pockets with the sale of these non-disclosed posthumous forgeries, under the guise it will benefit a local charity: Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County.

The voluntary $2 recommended donation given by the public at the door of the Artwork of John Lennon exhibition and sale, being held at the Stamford Hilton Hotel on November 30 to December 2, 2012, is the only potential -benefit- the Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County will receive.

Yoko Ono and Legacy Fine Art & Production Inc. have no shame.

Yet, in the Stamford Advocate's published November 27, 2012 "Lennon exhibition aims to draw fans, raise funds for local charity" article by Christina Hennessy, the reporter wrote: "Money raised will support the Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County. She is involved in other efforts to reduce global hunger, including the "Imagine There's No Hunger" campaign that was launched with WhyHunger and Hard Rock International earlier this month for the fifth consecutive year."

Does the fine charity Food Bank of Lower Fairfield have to receive peanuts under false pretenses while its' citizens are defrauded of their gold? Rhetorically, do the ends justify the means?

As for Yoko Ono's exhibition producer for this non-disclosed Artwork of John Lennon -fraud-, this is an excerpt of WUSA 2006 broadcast story on how Legacy Fine Art & Production Inc.'s director Rudy Siegel responds to these serious accusations when the news media knows the questions to ask.

In a June 29, 2006 Washington D.C. station WUSA Channel 9 televised [Artwork of John Lennon exhibition in Alexandria, VA] story by reporter Bruce Leshan, the -exhibit spokesman- Rudy Siegel [in response to the reporter's questions] made the following statements: "The majority of the work on display was printed posthumously. - The artwork is coming from the Lennon estate. People aren't stupid. They know the difference between a print and an original."

Here is what Rudy Siegel says when the news media does -not- know the questions to ask.

In a November 30, 2010 Atlanta Journal Constitution published "Lennon's art 'unassuming' Galleries eventually came to value work of ex-Beatle, Ono says" article by Sheila Poole, the reporter wrote: "Folks have been collecting and viewing John Lennon's work for 40 years," said Rudy Siegel, a producer at Legacy Productions, who helped put together the tour with Ono and Bag One Arts. "He was so prolific," Siegel said. "He was at home raising Sean and drawing. He wasn't doing any songwriting or recording. It was his outlet at the time to express himself."

Yoko Ono' and her business associate Rudy Siegel have no shame.

With the above facts, would the reporter Christina Hennessy, much less Stamford Advocate, now consider writing a different story? Since my November 27, 2012 attempts to contact the reporter Christina Hennessy resulted in the following email: "I will be out of the office Friday, Nov. 23 to Sunday, Dec. 2," that immediate followup Stamford Advocate published article will have to be written by another.

Stamford Advocate's Managing Editor and colleague have so been notified by email.

In closing, let's hope for the sake of citizens of Stamford and the surrounding communities, someone at Stamford Advocate will consider doing so in the next few days.

Caveat Emptor!
