Art Omi’s latest exhibit, Katherine Bernhardt’s ‘GOLD’, is a collection of seven large paintings of the enigmatic yet illustrious Pink Panther. The paintings are not dissimilar to Bernhardt’s early work, which focused on supermodels such as Gisele Bündchen and Kate Moss. Over the past decade, Katherine Bernhardt’s subjects have expanded to include pop cultural icons (e.g. Darth Vader, R2D2, Garfield, Smurfs, E.T., the Pink Panther, etc.), as well as more quotidian objects (cigarettes, toilet paper, MTA MetroCards, plantains, sharks, watermelons, tennis shoes, Coca Cola, Pepsi, Scotch Tape, ice cream, pizza, etc.).

Bernhardt began painting the Pink Panther after she arrived at the Pink Palace Hotel (also called the Royal Hawai’ian Hotel) located on a sandy beach in Waikiki, Oahu. The pinkness of this trip continued after she checked into the hotel that featured pink bathroom towels, pink sheets, pink eye masks for sleeping, pink carpeting, pink beach chairs, pink beach towels, pink stationery, pink sunsets, pink pancakes at breakfast, and the Pink Panther on TV screens. After Bernhardt repeatedly watched videos of the panther along with her son while lounging atop their huge pink bed and while strolling around the hotel grounds while her son Khalifa continued to watch Pink Panther videos from a cell phone, she decided that the panther could look great on large-scale canvas too.

Kef Wireless Speakers

I’m constantly rearranging the rooms of my home. Usually that just means moving furniture and the stuff hanging on my walls, which is fun. Unfortunately, whenever I move the TV, I also have to rewire the surround sound speaker system, which is tedious, frustrating and usually limiting as I have to find a layout that cleverly conceals the wires.

With one of these new Kef Wireless Speaker Kits (KIT 120 and KIT 140), I could move my TV and speakers without ever having to worry about whether or not the new layout will leave wires running all over the room.


Offered in a matt silver or high gloss black paint the entire package includes two main loudspeakers, a subwoofer with an incorporated high performance amplifier and an identical DVD/CD player. Unfortunately with a starting price of $2480, I won’t be adding these to my home theater set-up any time soon. But don’t let that stop you – click here for more info.
