By Gregory & Ernest Disney-Britton

This week, Mom Britton announced she's ending her chemotherapy. It's making things worse. She is back home resting, and her spirits are fairly high as she plans for her 85th birthday in 2023. And speaking of high spirits, Apollo Magazine announced Toyin Ojih Odutola as Artist of the Year, and Anonymous Was A Woman announced Chitra Ganesh as one of its $25,000 grantees. Auction results for both are available on Artsy.com (Odutalo, Ganesh). However, it's those 
Buddhist and Hindu influences that make Chitra Ganesh our collector's tip of the week.
