C1 DATED MATERIAL PLEASE RUSH POSTMASTER REQUESTED IN-HOME DELIVERY DATE: FEBRUARY 12, 2009 POSTAL CUSTOMERHistory, art feel the pinch The tough economy affects museums everywhere. B1 A traveling collection of more than 100 pieces of art created by John Lennon arrives in Naples this week. Remember Love: Celebrating Johns Message of Peace, Hope & Love will be on display at 1290 Third Street South for three days beginning Friday, Feb. 14. Comprised mostly of limited-edition serigraphs, lithographs, copper etchings and aqua tints of Mr. Lennons drawings, the collection is one of the annual exhibits that Mr. Lennons widow, Yoko Ono, in conjunction with Legacy Fine Arts & Productions, has taken around the country for the past 15 years. New releases in Remember Love include Give Peace a Chance, Consult the Stars and Turn Left & Make Peace. Ms. Ono signs the limited-edition prints of her late husbands works, for which prices range from $200 to $18,000. Mr. Lennon attended the Liverpool Art Institute for three years before the Beatles became a full-time occupation, and he continued to draw throughout his life. At the time of his death in 1980, he had saved several hundred drawings that he considered important. Legacy Fine Arts & Productions describes his work, done mostly in pen, pencil and Japanese sumi ink, as whimsical yet poetic a commentary on his everyday life, his wife Yoko and their son.

The very rich, it seems, arent that different from you and me. When times are tough, even those possessing extraordinary wealth spend less, although lets be honest and admit that spending less is something of a relative term. Exhibit A in this regard is last weekends ninth annual Naples Winter Wine Festival, which, according to the events Web site, is ranked among the top 10 arts and entertainment events for wealthy Americans. The highlight of the festival was Saturdays auction, which splayed across the verdant, sun-dappled lawns of The RitzCarlton Golf Resort in Naples.
