Benacquista Galleries, Inc. announced today it has commenced its previously announced share buyback program.
On February 21, 2006 we announced that we would be buying back up to 200,000 shares of Benacquista's stock over the next 9-12 months. Today, we would like to report that the company has begun its share buyback program with a purchase of 15,000 shares at .40 cents on May 31st. As shareholders can see in my recently filed form 4, over the past week, I personally have purchased 49,900 shares at an average of .525 cents per share. For me, I can't see any better investment then shares in Benacquista Galleries. We have over four years of hard work in the development of the company and its products. Since the initial launch of the company's flagship product, The Farmacist Desk Reference (FDR) we have received outstanding success and great accolades from all. Author, Don Tolman has embarked on a 7 week tour promoting The FDR throughout the Pacific Rim including, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, and Hawaii. With the exciting launch of the Farmacist's Desk Reference (FDR), and our innovative new artist program we believe fully in our ability to grow Benacquista and its subsidiaries into serious players in their respective industries,' stated Benacquista President, Jim Price.

Amazon and eBay get millions of hits per day and have established buyers that frequent their site for much their shopping experience.
Benacquista Galleries President, Jim Price states, 'We felt that expanding our retail network was an important step in our development process. While we're proud of our own network of websites we realize that much of the world's commerce is now conducted on these various sites.

"Ynot Eduk8 announces the launch of its Pre-Magined Academic (PMA) curriculum.
Don Tolman, director of Benacquista Galleries and President of Ynot Eduk8 states, 'I can't believe it! I'm so excited to finally announce the start date of our, 'Educational Revolution' using Pre-Magined Academic (PMA) curriculum that comes to families as a 'Self-Guiding and Self Measuring System' that I refer to as a 'Cottage Education in a Box.' This is the much anticipated and longed for kick off of 'The Country Day School' program here in the U.S., Australia, New Zealand and Canada. We are now primed to invite entrepreneurial minded folks and talented teachers, or those who would love to teach, to become highly specialized, 'At Home Tutors'. We are hoping to hire and train up to 30,000
of these 'In Home Tutors' over the next 18 months.
These Tutors will run ads in local papers and write informational news releases to promote their 'classrooms.' However, we believe that most of their classes will fill up simply from the word of mouth referral systems we have developed just for The Country Day School. We have a lot of interest coming our way from Board Certified Teachers that are dissatisfied with the educational system they are presently working in.
We have a very real, very global educational opportunity here. Instead of focusing on 'what to learn,' our entire focus is on 'how to learn.' 'Imagination,' Einstein declared, 'is everything.' The 21st Century no doubt is going to be all about Imagination, how to retain imagination, and how to use it in everything you have or want to learn, even how to magnify the powers of your imagination. That's our Expertise. We can show children and adults how to experience what we call learning and recall at The Speed of Sight by taking all of the work out of it for them by using Pre-Magined Academic curriculums. Once you experience one of these imaginative visual Art of Learning tools you don't want to ever go back to chant repetition (time and brain wasting) systems again.'
YNOT Eduk8 is currently constructing a new website:
, which will detail the full business plan and curriculums that will be offered. For more information, please visit http://www.ynoteduk8.com

Farmacist Desktop Reference (FDR) (flagship product). The FDR two volume book set sells for an introductory retail price of $149.95 and the DVD version sells for $69.95;
Think Fast, Signum Natura (two books in one);
Develop your Mental Muscle;
('Think Fast' & 'Develop Your Mental Muscle' are two books intended to increase memory and cognitive ability through exercises.
Think Fast is the resurrection of information on 'how to learn' that became lost with the militant murder of innocent people of genius and the burning of the Alexandrian Library. You will be entertained, bewildered and enlightened at the rediscovery of basic principles of 'How to Learn' in the natural human observational principles of individual imaginative genius as it applies to the 'Oral Tradition' of learning hidden in the prehistoric symbols of what today is simply called, 'A deck of playing cards.'
Develop Your Mental Muscle is intended to increase memory and cognitive ability. In this book readers will be enlightened as they explore Memory at the Speed of Sight, Mnemonic Systems, The Art of Memory, Names and Faces, The Vision of Memory and How to Study.
