The exhibit opens Sunday. Teen artists pay tribute to slain civil rights leader By Maribel Villalva El Paso Times More than 35 years after the assassination of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., his messages of equality are still inspiring young students everywhere. In El Paso, a group of students have submitted original artwork depicting the slain leader and his teachings to the fourth annual Mayor's Youth Art Showcase and Humanitarian Award Presentation, a project sponsored by the city of El Paso Parks and Recreation Department. The event is al- ways held near Martin Luther King Jr. Day, which is Jan. 19. This.year's show will feature about 30 pieces by the students and three professional El Paso artists: Dee Johnson, Jimmie Lou Malone and James Millender. The exhibit opening will be from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday at Lincoln Center, 4001 Durazno. Nabil Juarez, a 16-year-old Del Valle High School student, will have one of her pieces in the show. She submitted a portrait of King accompanied by the words, "Celebrate Black History." "It started as a school project, but I've learned that he fought for the rights of blacks," she said. The event is also designed to give the young students, most of whom have aspirations to be artists, a venue to exhibit their work, and the opportunity to go through the process of being in a gallery and experience an exhibit opening. Juarez's mother, Mayela Briones is happy to see her daughter's artwork displayed in a gallery.

Stylists ready to help stars dress to win By Ann Oldenburg USA Today And the race is on. Awards season is just around the corner, and the question is: what to wear? The Golden Globes will begin the red carpet fashion parade Jan. 25. For nominees, presenters or those who just want to be seen, the scramble is on as stylists and designers vie to dress the top stars. "It's so competitive," says stylist Jessica Paster, an eight-year veteran whose clients include Naomi Watts, Marcia Gay Harden and Cate Blanchett, nominated for "Veronica Guerin." Paster says she has heard p : of two Oscar hopefuls who have already decided what they're wearing, right down"" to the accessories. And the -Oscars aren't until Feb. 29. ' Susan Ashbrook, founder of Film Fashion, a public relations firm devoted to designers, two months ago sent out a time line to clients reminding them that the season was moved up by about a month from last ; year. Designers then put fi-. nal touches on their "look . books" photo collections of mannequins and models , in red carpet possibilities. ' Look books are sent to stylists hired to create a star's winning look, including jewelry, shoes, hair, makeup and any other accessory. Getting any celebrity to wear your gown on a red carpet is valuable the best showcase possible. But there are A-listers even among the A-listers. Paster says Nicole Kidman is a fashion icon, but this year, Uma Thurman, with a Golden Globe nomination and Oscar buzz for "Kill Bill Vol. 1," is emerging as another statuesque actress designers would love to drape. Including designer Nicole Miller. "I've always admired the unique style of Charlize Theron, Uma Thurman and Diane Keaton," Miller says.
