CRANSTON, RI, UNITED STATES, August 5, 2021 / — Original oil on canvas paintings by Ram Kumar (India, 1924-2018) and Jean Charlot (Hawaii/Calif./Mexico, 1898-1979) will headline an online-only Summer Antiques & Fine Art estate auction slated for Thursday, August 19th, by Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers, beginning promptly at 6 pm Eastern time. Over 400 quality lots will come under the gavel.

The catalog is packed with paintings, decorative arts, furniture, jewelry, silver, Asian arts and collectibles, pulled from prominent estates and collections across New England. Internet bidding will be available on multiple platforms:,,, and the mobile app “Bruneau & Co.” on iTunes or GooglePlay.

“These online auctions have become a fixture for us throughout COVID-19,” said Travis Landry, a Bruneau & Co. auctioneer and the firm’s Director of Pop Culture. “Even though everyone is bidding from the comfort of their homes, it is a great learning experience for all involved to see antiques and collectibles, their value and how the market has changed throughout the last year.”

Kevin Bruneau, the company’s president and owner, added, “It’s very exciting to see this assemblage of items from New England collections. From the Indian artists to Jean Charlot and the amazing collection of mineral specimens, there is something for all collectors being offered.”

With a pre-sale estimate of $25,000-$35,000, the abstract architectural oil painting by India’s Ram Kumar is the sale’s expected top lot. Part of the artist’s Beneras series, the work depicts brown buildings against a vibrant blue sky from the opposite side of a river. It’s signed and dated (“Ram Kumar 07”) on verso and measures 36 inches by 24 inches (the canvas, minus the frame).

Kumar was a prolific artist and one of the most important abstract painters of modern India. He studied at the Sarada Ukil School of Art in New Delhi before traveling to Paris to study art under Andre Lhote and Fernard Leger. In 1969, Kumar traveled to the United States and Mexico on a Rockefeller Scholarship. Kumar's career has been highlighted by numerous solo exhibitions and retrospectives. His work is highly prized by collectors.

The oil painting by Jean Charlot is a whimsical figural illustration depicting three small, round-faced children wearing glasses and straw hats in an oval-shaped forested world, surrounded by colorful birds. The work is inscribed, signed and dated (“For H.F.D., Jean Charlot 1945”) and is housed in a 36 inch by 56 inch frame (estimate: $7,000-$10,000).

Charlot was born in France and studied at the Ecole de Beaux Arts in Paris. After WWI, he moved to Mexico, where he befriended Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros and Jose Orozco, establishing himself within the Mexico City art scene. In 1947, he moved his family to Colorado to become head of the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center Art School. He then moved again, to Hawaii, where he continued to teach at the University of Hawaii.

A nude drawing by Jehangir Sabavala (India/France,1922-2011) depicts a sculpted male figure with soft facial features and thick curly hair. The graphite on paper work is signed and dated (“Sabavala Paris ‘48”) lower left corner, and measures 28 ½ inches by 12 ½ inches (sight, less frame). It’s from a collector in Texas and was purchased directly from the artist by the present owner's father in Mumbai in the 1960s (estimate: $6,000-$9,000).

Sabavala was born to an affluent Parsi family, earning a diploma in art at Mumbai's Sir J. J. School of Art in 1944. From there, Sabavala studied at the Heatherley School of Fine Art, Academie Andre Lhote, Academie Julian and the Academie de la Grande Chaumiere.

A large and ornate 19th century French figural cartel wall clock, the largest and highest-quality cartel clock Bruneau & Co. has ever offered, 32 ½ inches tall by 21 inches wide, carries a pre-sale estimate of $3,000-$5,000. The clock boasts a white face with Roman numeral numbering and is housed in a gilded bronze case decorated with acanthus leaves framing a bare breasted woman feeding birds while a putto reaches towards a rooster.

Rounding out just a few of the sale’s expected star lots, a natural Colombian trapiche emerald, unpolished with a vibrant green coloration, weighing 25.5 grams, should bring $3,000-$5,000. The stone comes directly from the collection of a Smithfield, R.I. estate.

WISEACRE Launches "The Set Up" Ready to Drink Cocktails

The Set Up is WISEACRE’s new line of ready-to-drink canned cocktails

WISEACRE’s The Set Up canned cocktails are just 99 calories, with zero carbs and zero sugar.

Shannon Allen, WISEACRE’s longest-tenured employee, will lead the launch of The Set Up.

99-calorie canned cocktails include Gin and Soda with Lime, HiBall Whiskey Soda with Lemon, and Vodka Soda with Grapefruit and Pineapple

By using a real distilled liquor for The Set Up, we’re able to create a smoother and more crisp cocktail that really lets the fruit flavor and the base alcohol shine through.”

— Davin Bartosch, WISEACRE co-founder and brewmaster

MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE, USA, August 5, 2021 / — WISEACRE Brewing Company is launching a new, non-beer line of canned cocktails called The Set Up. While the name hints at the ready-to-drink (RTD) nature of the canned cocktails, insiders will recognize it as a reference to the accoutrement that a popular and beloved Memphis dive bar requires you to purchase if you bring your own liquor. The Set Up will be available in 4-packs of 12-ounce cans.

“It was a unique set of circumstances that got us here,” explained WISEACRE co-founder Kellan Bartosch. “We obtained a distiller’s license years ago so we could legally make high gravity beer in Tennessee before some laws were changed. A distiller’s license is very hard to come by, but at the time we felt it critical to be able to make true-to-style Belgian Tripel, Barrel Aged Imperial Stout, and other brews for which the ABV is critical. We’ve maintained that license, which now allows us to make beers over 10%, but it also opened the door for this opportunity. It was always part of the plan to further utilize our facility on Broad Avenue for new projects once our new facility downtown opened. COVID delayed that a bit, but we are really excited to get this off the ground which will be one of the first craft canned cocktails in the region.”

“We wanted the packaging design to go in a different direction from our amazing beer cans, which led us to working with local brand pros Loaded For Bear. They took a reference from the incredible dive bars, juke joints, and social clubs that Memphis is known for, and we’re thrilled with how they turned out,” Kellan continued.

“This is a totally different project for us, but one that brings a lot of excitement,” WISEACRE’s co-founder and brewmaster Davin Bartosch said. “The world of hard seltzers came out of nowhere a few years ago and has been growing. Seltzers are trying to create cocktail and liquor drink flavors, but they are deriving alcohol from beer-brewing ingredients and techniques, which often leaves residual flavors and aromas from yeast fermentation. By using a real distilled liquor for The Set Up, we’re able to create a smoother and more crisp cocktail that really lets the fruit flavor and the base alcohol shine through. Other breweries like Dogfish Head, Boulevard, and Abita have gone the RTD direction instead of seltzer, and it felt much more natural to us.”

WISEACRE’s longest-tenured employee, and avid cocktail fan, Shannon Allen will be taking the lead on the project. “This is beyond exciting as a company to have this new offering for people to embibe & enjoy. In my time at WISEACRE, I’ve worked in every position available – from taproom, packaging, cellar and brewhouse. I’m thrilled to apply all that experience to helping to launch The Set Up. Cocktails have a fun history. We’re going to share some of that history with our first three flavors, and we’ll keep telling the story with more styles and flavors down the road.”

All three of the canned cocktails in The Set Up will be 5% ABV with 99 calories, zero carbs and zero sugar. They are gluten-free but official designation as such is still pending third-party testing. While the distribution network will have its own life, separate from that of WISEACRE’s beer distribution, The Set Up canned cocktails will be available at the brewery’s Broad Avenue taproom where they are produced; they will not be available at the newer Downtown Memphis location. Flavors include:

-Vodka Soda with Grapefruit and Pineapple 4-pack of 12oz cans – Vodka soda done up with our favorite tropical combo
-Gin and Soda with Lime – 4-pack of 12oz cans – classic cocktail with Memphis soda water and a splash of lime
-HiBall with Lemon – 4-pack of 12oz cans – A tradition of Japanese malt whiskey and soda with a lemon twist

The Set Up’s distribution footprint will begin with Memphis only, expanding to North Mississippi soon. WISEACRE beer is currently sold in Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Jersey, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Washington DC and, of course, Tennessee.

WISEACRE Brewing Company opened in Memphis, Tennessee in 2013 after brothers and Memphis natives Davin and Kellan Bartosch gained experience working in the brewing industry around the country. Since then, WISEACRE has grown to have two brewery and taproom locations, more than 60 employees and distribution in fifteen states, and has made more 170 beers ranging from German lagers, to hoppy American styles, complex and boozy Belgian beers, and barrel aging beers to boot.

Small Batch Clothing Manufacturer in Downtown L.A. Sheds Light on Starting A Clothing Line

LA Fashion Production House

The Evans Group (TEG), in Downtown Los Angeles have helped build some of the most memorable clothing lines of the past two decades.

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, August 5, 2021 / — A Los Angeles clothing manufacturer is in the business of propping up emerging designers to help start clothing lines. Started in 2005, Jennifer Evans and her fashion production house, The Evans Group (TEG), in Downtown Los Angeles have helped build some of the most memorable clothing lines of the past two decades.

Through small batch manufacturing, where clothing manufacturers focus on around 30 to 500 samples of clothing. As TEG simply states, "small batch production gives you a way to control the costs and batch numbers." This is where TEG shines, putting time and effort into perfecting clothing lines with the attention to detail that they deserve.

Although TEG parcels out important tips to choosing the best clothing manufacturer, Evans and her team are confident that fashion designers looking to start a clothing line will choose them every time. And after delving deep into the business's process, philosophy, and products, it's easy to see why.
Through research, raw experience, and comprehensive business plans, TEG dishes out the facts and knowledge established and emerging designers need to know to start a clothing line.

The Devil's In the Details: Designing A Clothing Line

Regardless of whether you're an established or emerging designer in Los Angeles, TEG allows creators to design couture to help a business grow. With a litany of past clients (now numbering over 2,000), The Evans Group (TEG) knows how to get to the essence of designing clothing lines.

For example, the forward-thinking brand specializing in womenswear, Hiraeth, formed a close bond with the TEG team. The Hiraeth team, focusing on creating fashion free of all animal products, had one resource they knew they could count on: guidance from Jennifer Evans and her team. TEG oversaw the planning and production of Hiraeth's clothing line, ensuring that the client's goals were always the first thing.

Through various examples and case studies, TEG displays how it sets itself apart from other apparel manufacturing factories in Los Angeles.

5 Steps to Create Couture

Along with design services for any level of clothing business, TEG offers expert advice for the up-and-coming designer. In a recent article, 'Custom Clothing Orders: Follow These Steps for Catchy Couture,' the TEG team lays out the definitive steps to bring a designer's clothing business to the fore of the fashion industry.

One of those steps? Forging a bond with the clothing manufacturer you choose. As TEG states, "Both client and clothing manufacturer can be talented, but if there’s no meaningful communication between the two parties, all of that artistic vision can come up short."

Oh, and TEG also easily settles the difference between couture and haute couture.

Choosing a Good Clothing Manufacturer to Launch a Clothing Line

Since TEG is a name that carries weight in the Downtown L.A. fashion scene, helping independent fashion designers is the name of the game. How does TEG do it?

TEG spends a lot of time hashing out essential details of a future clothing line. For example, in TEG's new piece, 'Find a Clothing Manufacturer Near You: A Guide for Creatives,' a large part of the clothing line design process includes a lot of planning, like finding price points and establishing budgets. Maybe not the most glamorous aspect of starting your own clothing line, but it's crucial to become the next big thing in the L.A. fashion scene.

Jennifer Evans also employs the talent of several nearby Los Angeles garment factories, creating jobs in the process.

Why You Need to Avoid Fast Fashion

Along with focusing on small-time clothing businesses and emerging fashion designers, TEG believes in sustainable fashion. Where other manufacturers may cut corners, TEG doubles down and commits to meticulous detail, depending on a team of seamstresses, pattern makers, and other designers.

This includes avoiding the pitfalls of the environmentally disastrous practice of fast fashion. Like fast food, fast fashion is extremely convenient. The problem? It ruins the environment and creates tons of waste. Aside from poor quality materials, the textile workers in factories are more often than not underpaid and overworked. As The Evans Groups points out in their article:

"These pieces of clothing are made cheap, with lower-quality fabric and materials, often exposing textile workers to inhumane working conditions. Garment workers involved in the mass production of these pieces often work long hours for meager pay."

TEG, on the other hand, commits to doing the complete opposite. Jennifer Evans goes out of her way to employ local workers and factories. She brings them into the fold to help emerging fashion designers start clothing lines and launch fashion businesses from the heart of her Downtown L.A. clothing manufacturing studio.

Evans herself recognizes the massive toll that the fashion industry can have on the environment. She and her team effectively tailor her business practices minimizing the negative impact clothing lines can have.

What Does This Mean for New Fashion Designers?

With resources ranging from articles on couture to a top-of-the-line design and production team, The Evans Group provides new designers with the tools they need to start a clothing line of their own. With a small batch clothing manufacturer, independent clothing designers can now start a clothing line, even if they don't have a huge budget.

Launching a business in the fashion industry, no less, is a challenging pursuit.

But Jennifer Evans and her team are here to take any unrealistic goals and make them not only possible but likely to succeed.

About The Evans Group

The Evans Group, founded in 2005, is a full-service fashion development and production house based in Los Angeles and San Francisco. Since its inception, The Evans Group has worked with over 2,000 clothing brands and designers. The Evans Group prides itself on being one of the few fashion houses in the United States with raw experience and talent. And primarily for independent fashion designers to benefit from.

With talented seamstresses, pattern makers, and fashion pattern drafters, TEG allows emerging designers the chance to start a clothing line.

Business Reporter: Collaborate and grow: How SAP Ariba SCC benefits supply chain planning and performance

How can a consultancy help make the most of the world’s largest B2B network?

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, August 5, 2021 / — In an Industry View piece published on Business Reporter, Olivehorse, a provider of supply chain planning consulting services with the SAP Recognised Expertise status, explains how replacing planning heuristics with a cost based optimisation approach, can help make businesses more agile and resilient. By integrating procurementinto the sales and operations planning process, using SAP’s IBP for Response and Supply Optimisation capabilities enables the simulation and implementation of tactical planning and sourcing decisions within the framework of a single, global model.

Olivehorse has identified SAP Ariba for Supply Chain Collaboration as the key platform to real-time supply chain management and end to end visibility. It can be integrated with ERP systems as well as SAP IBP. When businesses connect to the Ariba Network, they connect to millions of suppliers across direct and indirect expense categories. While all the highly complex demand planning, material requirements planning (MRP), and associated changes remain in the companies’ ERP and planning system, they can be digitally shared with suppliers live and in real time.

What Olivehorse brings to the table is its domain expertise, industry knowledge and collective years of experience in the field. Implemented with expert knowledge, the Ariba Network can not only help establish the level of supply chain transparency and resilience that is instrumental in a post-Covid world but also enable the digitisation of supply chains and the optimisation of capital by reducing both latency and lead times.

Giroud Tree and Lawn explains how Spotted Lanternfly cause problems for homeowners and how to get rid of these problem pests.

“We are fully prepared to combat the Spotted Lanternfly. The challenge is making the community aware of the problem.”

— Matt Giroud, Director of Field Operations, Giroud Tree & Lawn.

HUNTINGDON VALLEY, PA, UNITED STATES, August 5, 2021 / — Spotted Lanternfly are being reported all over Philadelphia, Bucks and Montgomery Counties. First spotted in 2014, Penn State’s Agriculture Extension has been monitoring Spotted Lanternfly and issuing warnings about this invasive insect. They’re a problem for local farmers who are losing fruit and timber crops to the insects’ voracious appetite. Homeowners are also seeing impacts that range from annoying to significant damage.

Spotted Lanternfly Harms Trees

The Spotted Lanternfly feeds primarily on the Tree of Heaven, which is common throughout the region. Unfortunately, these flies also swarm other types of trees, including Black Walnuts, Maples, Apples, Willows, and many more. According to the PA Department of Agriculture, they attack more than 70 species of trees, and 25 of them are found in Pennsylvania.

At this point, it’s hard to determine the long-term damage to trees. Penn State has been following the Spotted Lanternfly and monitoring infested trees for several years. While it’s still too early to say what the long-term effects will be, the insects are definitely causing significant die-back and defoliating branches in trees.

Spotted Lanternfly Causes Property Damage

These insects eat tree sap and then excrete droppings of a sweet, sticky substance called Honeydew. The honeydew will coat the tree, the base of the tree, and anything underneath the tree, including cars, hardscapes and decking. Then, black, sooty mold grows on the secreted substance. The combination of honeydew and black, sooty mold has an unpleasantly sour stench and is very difficult to remove from surfaces.

Spotted Lanternfly Attracts Dangerous Insects

The secreted honeydew attracts stinging wasps, who can’t resist the tantalizing smell of the honeydew. Stinging wasps are particularly a problem for children playing in the area.

How to Get Rid of Spotted Lanternfly

“We are fully prepared to combat the Spotted Lanternfly,” says Matt Giroud, Director of Field Operations at Giroud Tree & Lawn. “We are prepped and ready to treat these trees. The challenge is making the community aware of the problem.”

Adult Spotted Lanternfly should be squashed and killed. However, these insects will attack a tree in swarms, making it difficult to squish them all. Chemical treatments may be necessary for large infestations of Spotted Lanternfly on a property.

Homeowners should call an ISA Certified Arborist if there are signs of Spotted Lanternfly on the property. Penn State and the PA Department of Agriculture have recommended a two-part treatment program to eliminate Spotted Lanternfly.
July-Mid-September: Dinotefuran is applied as a Basal Trunk Spray. For a few weeks after treatment, the insects are killed on contact or when they crawl on treated surfaces. After the insecticide is absorbed through the tree’s vascular system, Spotted Lanternfly are killed when they feed on the tree.

September-Mid-November: Bifenthrin is sprayed on trees with Spotted Lanternfly. This treatment kills the insects on contact and when they walk over surfaces with the residue on it.

What Lurks Under the Dirt: Call Before You Dig

Safe Electricity logo

Can you dig it graphic that explains how to avoid hitting an underground utility line.

Don’t just dig in. Call 811 to have underground utilities marked.

Instead of hitting pay dirt, you will pay if you hit an underground line

…Underground utility lines could be anywhere, and they also shift over time. They should always be marked in advance because some can be found only a few inches below the surface.”

— Erin Hollinshead

SPRINGFIELD, ILLINOIS, UNITED STATES, August 5, 2021 / — August 11 (8/11) is National Safe Digging Day, also known as 811 Day. The observance reminds anyone considering an outdoor project that breaks ground to get underground utilities marked in advance. Having them marked is free and easy to do; simply call 811 at least two full business days prior to starting a digging project. While state laws vary, utility companies generally have a few days to respond to your request.

If you don’t take the time to call before you dig, you could become the person who digs in an unmarked yard and strikes an underground line every nine minutes. No one wants to be that person.

The long version of the 1971 song American Pie is almost 9 minutes long. That means if the song was played in a loop with a pause in between, a person would hit an underground line each time the song replayed. Every nine minutes, a person would be saying (or singing), “Bye-bye (Miss American Pie)" to some hard-earned cash. Fines aside, digging without knowing what is below the dirt could cause serious injury or a power outage.

People are tempted to skip calling in advance because they think striking a buried line will not happen to them. They assume that they will ‘not dig too deep’ or that they will ‘be careful.’ However, underground lines are unyielding. Their path is unpredictable and hitting one can happen with one strike of a shovel or other tool.

“You might think you are just installing a mailbox or just using a post-hole digger or planting only a small flower bed” says Erin Hollinshead, executive director of Safe Electricity. “However, underground utility lines could be anywhere, and they also shift over time. They should always be marked in advance because some can be found only a few inches below the surface.”

Kevin Chmura, director of public relations for Illinois’ one-call notification service JULIE, Inc., agrees. “Protect yourself and your family. Striking a single buried utility line can cause injury, repair costs, penalties and inconvenient outages,” he says. Every project, big or small, requires advance notification to 811. To start the underground utility marking process, call 811 or go to your state’s own 811 center website.

According to Chmura, examples of projects that require utility location include putting up a fence, installing a mailbox post, building a deck or patio, and planting trees and shrubs; however, this is not an all-inclusive list. Any project that breaks ground requires that underground utilities be marked.

After submitting a request, underground lines will be marked by their respective utilities; however, locators do not mark private lines such as service to outbuildings, underground sprinkler systems or a gas line to a grill, for example. Private lines are the responsibility of the homeowner.

If you are only digging in a small area of your yard, you can outline the area in white spray paint or with white flags to ensure that only that part of your yard will be located and marked. (White flags are available at home improvement stores.)

There are five steps to safer digging:
1. Pre-mark the proposed dig area with white paint or flags.
2. Call 811 or go online to submit your locate request before you dig. There is no charge for the service.
3. Wait the required amount of time (typically two business days).
4. Respect the marks and do not move any flags.
5. Dig with care. Avoid digging on top of or within 18–24 inches on all sides of utility marks, which may mean moving your digging project to another part of your yard.
