What do Winston Churchill, Kosmo Vinyl and Wreckless Eric Have in Common?
They're all British... yes, that's the first thing that comes to mind. Churchill (1874-1965) was born in Woodstock, England; Kosmo Vinyl (b. 1957) hails from East London; and Wreckless Eric (b. 1954) is from Newhaven, East Sussex. You might also know that they're all artists, and yes, plenty of artists come from England, so what? Well...
Ruth Franklin (another superb British artist) and I recently had the privilege of attending the opening of 'The Art of Diplomacy: Winston Churchill and the Pursuit of Painting' at the Millenium Gate Museum in Atlanta. The exhibition features over 30 of Churchill's paintings, many of which have never before been displayed publicly. In short, it's a fascinating exhibit on many levels, and I highly recommend you go see it before it closes on February 1, 2015...

And there I was thinking England's "special relationship with Georgia" had been started by Macon's own Little Richard ! I know mine began with the purchase of "Otis Redding's "Otis Blue" LP.

Well, none of them were are exactly reverent about authority and each of them has risen to their own degree of iconic stature for accomplishments other than the making of art. I truly appreciate your great post!
