Peter Thomas and Cynthia Bailey’s Bar One and Bailey Modeling Agency in Trouble?

©Allen Cooley Photography

On a recent interview with Bravo’s Andy Cohen, RHOA’s  Peter Thomas (Cynthia Bailey’s husband) assured fans that his Atlanta venue Bar One was doing quite well. However, that may not be the truth.

Thomas is being sued for $100,000 for unpaid rent and bills at Bar One. The building’s landlord Eloshua Elliott says, [the] “defendant breached a lease agreement by failing to pay rent and other fees including late fees, bank charges, real estate property taxes and unpaid utilities.” The lawsuit said Thomas hasn’t paid his rent of $10,000 a month since March, 2013 through the end of the year.

Elliott has also separately filed a complaint against Thomas’ entertainment group for the property across the street at 670 Memorial Drive which houses the Bailey Agency, Bailey’s modeling and talent company.

 Thomas has since stated that  the problem is his primary landlord Showtime Cafe for the Bar One property. (Elliott is partial land owner.) Prior to March, he said they had been taking his money for a year and not passing it on to the bank First Fidelity for the mortgage they owe. He said Showtime is in foreclosure proceedings and according to Loopnet, the property was auctioned off in October, 2013 but does not say to whom (Thomas’ attorney recommended he not release the names of the owners of Showtime.) Starting last March, he started placing his rental payments in escrow with his attorney until Showtime straightened out its issues with its bank.

“I’ve been caught in the middle of the crossfire,” Thomas said. In reality, he has no problem financially paying his rent.”

Kanye Settles out of Court With Racist Teenager

Kanye West has just payed the 18 year old boy that called fiance Kim Kardashian a n***** lover $25,000. Well we guess it’s best that Kanye is out of this mess and charges have been dropped, but that little moron does not deserve any amount of money. He’ll probably blow it before he’s 21. If his parents were smart, they wouldn’t have allowed the jerk to take the money, but maybe they were out for a payday too.

Macklemore’s Tweet to Kendrick Lamar Tacky? We Think Not

Everyone’s talking about how Macklemore getting the Rap Album of the Year instead of Kendrick Lamar, who everyone know’s should have gotten the award, but anyways… Even we’re still proud of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis for winning their first Grammy, the rapper defintitely feels the backlash and uproar about “stealing” the award frm Kendrick. And consequently, sent the west coast rapper a tweet saying,

“You got robbed. I wanted you to win. You should have. It’s weird and sucks that I robbed you.”

Some say the tweet was tacky and maybe Macklemore should have sent it as a private message to Kendrick, but we’re glad that he said anything at all. Plus, the liquor had probably kicked in, if not went he typed the text, then when he actually sent it. Now should Macklemore give his Grammy to Kendrick? Hell no! Ain’t nobody giving away their first Grammy! LOL

T.I. and Tiny Deny Their Breaking Up

T.I. and Tiny say that they are not divorcing and their marriage is not in shambles. They say they just had a fight right before the Grammys about whether they would walk the red carpet or not.

Young Jeezy Arrested Second Time This Month

Rapper Young Jeezy has been arrested in  Alpharetta, Georgiayoung-jeezy-mugshot-horizontal-gallery and charged with obstruction for allegedly cursing at officers and refusing to provide his name.

Police are not giving too many details about the incident, but CNN affiliate WSB that police arrived at an Alpharetta townhouse because of a security alarm, but no one answered the door. Police saw Jeezy walking out the back of the townhouse, and the rapper allegedly said the townhouse was his girlfriend’s home.

Jeezy, born Jay Wayne Jenkins, reportedly refused to give his name to police, and instead cursed at them.

This is Jeezy’s second arrest this month. On Jan. 3, he turned himself in for allegedly beating up and threatening to kill his teenage son. 

According to the son, Jeezy “walked into the bathroom where he was and slammed his head against the sliding shower door,” then “picked him up and threw him into the wall in the bedroom,” a police report said.

When the teen tried to run downstairs and away, he was blocked by his father’s bodyguard, the report said.

Jeezy then “pulled him back into the room, threw him on the bed, choked him and stated, ‘I’ll kill you,” the son told police. He allegedly threw him against a wall and onto the floor before kicking him in the head.

“The juvenile stated his father stated to him ‘I’ll put a bullet in your head right now,'” the report said.

The boy’s mother called authorities when he returned home the next day, claiming he had bruises and scratches on his face.

Jeezy was later released on $45,000 bond.

Downtown Symbolism Comes Alive at Artist vs Architect

On Nov.14, Dallas’ One Arts Plaza was a stunning collage of innovative art and conversational architecture that united artists and attendees from all over the metroplex and beyond. Participating sponsors included Fiat, Veev, Matthew Shelley Photography and Patron Magazine to name a few.

The featured artists and architects were paired off by a panel of experts in the two fields and creatively “dueled it out” via canvases, sculptures, oil paintings, photography and other avenues of superb and  virtuous expression.

Upon review of all submissions, the  12  pairs of artists and architects were given two themes and were to  create a collaborative piece and an individual piece of work. A third artistic piece was optional for all contestants.

Throughout the evening, guests had the opportunity and pleasure of bidding via silent auction on all of the created works. Additionally a select few pieces, were placed in a live auction for bid during the evening. All proceeds from the auction were donated to a chosen charity beneficiary.

After hours of awe-inspiring artwork, mingling,  libations and high energy music, topped off with the beautiful host and charity enthusiast Leeanne Locken as MC for the evening, the voting was declared over and the winning pairs were announced. 

Congratulations to the 2013 AvA Winner architect Gardner Vass of Perkins+Will. This piece is called Grove Avenue NO.22 —

What intrigued us so much about all the collaborations of the contest was how well the artists worked together. Was everyone able to work well with their partners? Were they able to find common ground on their creations? Winners Ali Golzad and Meredith Quigley were surely able to.

“From the start when we met it was very clear that our understanding of our roles as individuals living on this planet was very close. which made it easy for us to decide early on
what type of project we wanted to work on,” said Golzad. “With this piece we just wanted to tell the story of many people who live in the shadows of the big corporations and government, working hard every day towards their dreams.”

Congratulations were soon due to the  2013 AvA Winner architect Gardner Vass of Perkins+Will and the collaborative winners artist Ali Golzad & architect Meredith Quigley from OMNIPLAN. Special recognition went to Hai Nguyen for being pour artist favorite of the night.

At this point, I also came up with the name of my piece, “Dallas 12 & 4”. These numbers refer back to the shadow-lines at certain times of the day in the 3-D model, 12 p.m. and 4 p.m. I thought at these moments, that the shadow-lines were the most interesting as they created new relationships between building planes and also surfaced as new objects within my diagram. In order to create a hierarchy within the model, I used color to better distinguish the two times of day,” explained Amador Saucedo of his 3-D piece.

We wanted to incorporate both structural elements and emotional elements in a way that would delightfully surprise people… a piece that looked nothing like an architectural design, nor a piece of photographic art. Sean & I both wanted it to be a whimsical, fun, yet aesthetically pleasing and functional design, proving the truth that “Less Is More,”

said photographer Carolyn Collins about her collab piece with artist Sean O’Brien.

New Dallas resident Andrew Cortez,

“was fascinated by the sprawling urban fabric and the vast network of interconnected roads that weave throughout the metro. This was the story I wanted to tell with my piece. I wanted to abstractly share a journey through the city, experiencing the vibrant life and energy within it, and the spontaneous moments that occur when a new piece of it is discovered.”

Cortez’s piece Anxious Awakening reminds us of the abstract vivid-ness of Deep Ellum, a sector of Dallas that the artist has yet to explore, but coincidentally has heard a lot about.

20131129-131215.jpg

“What inspires my art and design, specifically for 4000, was to see how far you can push the formal and physical limits of common items by adding a simple “connector.” In this case the item was 4000 binder clips and the “connector” was 70 pieces of thin piano wire,” informed Sean O’Brien.

“Most of the time when people see it they don’t realize that it’s binder clips…and when they do, the reaction is mixed. Some people are confused, and others laugh but I think everyone is intrigued.
Personally as a designer, I like to incorporate humor into my work when I can. This happened to be the perfect storm of poetic form and irony, ” he added.

The  silent and live auction raised over $10K for Family Compass (formerly known as Child Abuse Prevention Center.)

If you missed @AVAcontest, the art is available for e-auction. Click here ( http://t.co/t90VqP4JZa ) or email auction@artistvsarchitect.com today to place your bids. And be sure to stop by the One Arts Plaza in the Arts District. to view each piece for yourself.
