By Darren Smith, Weekend Contributor
turing-pharma-logoFollowing his arrest this week for alleged securities fraud, Turing Pharmaceuticals CEO Martin Shkreli resigned his office.
Turing garnered infamy for the 5000 percent price increase of Daraprim, a $13.50 medication indicated for patients requiring treatment of Toxoplasma gondii--an opportunistic pathogen afflicting the immune-compromised such as AIDS patients. Monthly treatment cost now associated with the drug can be upwards of seventy-five thousand dollars. See previous articles HERE and HERE.
Interim CEO Ron Tiles thanked the 32-year-old for "helping us build Turing Pharmaceuticals into the dynamic research-focused company it is today."

As shared by Galveston Arts Center (GAC) ...
The Galveston Arts Center (GAC) has reopened ArtWorks, a museum store located inside the newly restored location at 2127 Strand Street, Galveston, TX.
ArtWorks officially reopened November 13, 2015 on the eve of Galveston Art Center’s Coming Home gala celebrating the return to our pre-Ike location on Strand Street. The store focuses on unique, fine art craft and handmade designer goods from artists in Texas and throughout the country. From home wares, d├ęcor and jewelry to handcrafted wooden sunglasses, almost every item is a carefully curated collection from independent artists. The shop also has a children’s section with puppets, large floor pillows, stuffed animals, puzzles, games, and art supplies that educate, inspire, and entertain.
ArtWorks is filled with an assortment of works in iron, glass, wood, ceramics, textiles, and handcrafted cards and journals. Atlanta based sculptor and ceramics artist Charlotte Smith’s sophisticated ceramic bowls and cups, each one uniquely hand painted with simple yet elegant designs, are perfect for use or as an addition to any collector’s portfolio.
Urns, vases, and bowls from Jean Elton Ceramic Studio are shown in a variety of styles and designs. Made from slip-cast ceramics, the artist captures an essence of the color and lines of art glass, using loose and free brush strokes that result in striking, whimsical designs that set them apart.
ArtWorks offers jewelry from independent designers including Houston-based designer Heidi Gerstacker. Originally from Germany, Gerstacker’s work exhibits clean lines for a sophisticated modern flare, and can also be found in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Museum. Other local jewelry designers include Terry Fromm, Kamila Szczesna and, Marcela McLea, whose work is not only made for everyday use, but could easily please a discerning collector.
Purses, totes, and clutches with eye-catching designs hale from Lisa Caillet-Bois, a British-born designer and artist who promotes high quality organic and sustainably produced fabrics and materials. Caillet-Bois, now working and residing in Boise, Idaho, is inspired by nature and her travels to create beautiful abstract canvases that are then turned into wearable fashions that will “be both worn and treasured pieces of art for years to come.”
Other artists include Richard Florence whose turquoise inlaid bowls and vases are made locally in La Porte, and Galveston artist Marie Leterme offers a beautiful selection of original prints and sculptures.
ArtWorks is located inside the Galveston Arts Center at 2127 Strand Street, Galveston, TX, 77550, in the historic 1878 First National Bank of Galveston. The building sustained severe damage during hurricane Ike in 2008. Galveston Arts Center moved to a temporary location on Market Street. After seven years of planning and fundraising, the Arts Center was finally able return to their original home in the lovely Downtown Historic District.
Believing contemporary art can inspire, engage, provoke and inform, the Galveston Arts Center presents dynamic and innovative work focusing on professional visual artists. As a non-collecting, non-profit museum, GAC has furthered the careers of emerging and mid-career professional artists through the production of quality exhibitions and workshops.
Collaborative, wide-ranging education and outreach programs create a public forum to engage diverse audiences in an exploration of thought-provoking ideas that inform contemporary art and our experiences in a complex world.
Come visit us! ArtWorks is a great place to do all your holiday shopping.
