Randy Barbato and Fenton Bailey’s World of Wonder Productions, the creative force behind WE’s "Wife, Mom, Bounty Hunter," Oxygen’s "Tori and Dean: Inn Love" and Sundance Channel’s "One Punk Under God," is mounting a monthlong Art in August art exhibit in a storefront gallery at its Hollywood Boulevard headquarters. The exhibit will showcase a different artist or collection each week. Up Aug. 13: Leonora Claire’s assortment of works entitled "Golden Gals Gone Wild," featuring outrageous likenesses of the menopausal gang from ABC’s erstwhile hit "The Golden Girls"—mdash;and including Ms. Claire’s prized first acquisition, a well-publicized, no-breasts-barred sendup of a scantily clad Bea Arthur by Chris Zimmerman. After landing that gem, Ms. Claire went on to commission similar interpretations of the series’ stars from some 30 other artists. A note of caution: Management is not responsible for any damages whatsoever, howsoever caused.
