God is a Scottish Drag Queen,FL Food Summit and OMART


The Orlando Fringe Festival loves the show called God is a Scottish Drag Queen. Funny title and I admit I’ve never seen any of the multiple times the Orlando Fringe has brought it back to Orlando for special events, fundraisers, wedding showers the opening of a door…. I mean if they bring it back so much, it must be good. Or the actor in this one man show is gig-less and needs the cash. Either way, God is a Scottish Drag Queen, a very popular one man show comedy plays Saturday at 8 at the Plaza in the milk district.

Will Cotton’s painting of Elle Fanning, “Icing” (2014)
From the Pages of Orlando Weekly

Orlando Museum of Art Candyland fantasias


Depicting women as edibles is a dicey proposition, no matter how beautifully they’re painted. A new exhibition running to June 5th at the Orlando Museum of Art shows the work of New York artist Will Cotton, whose stock in trade is images of nubile girls dressed in pastry, whipped cream, and candy. This could easily offend. Some might think it sexist to portray women as empty creatures obsessed with empty calories.

And yet, the way Cotton creates his Candyland fantasias is undeniably rigorous. He bakes the pastry in his studio; he builds the cotton candy clouds …
