In February, we (finally) opened our beautiful new gallery “On Two” with an opening party—on the eve of an epic Dallas ice storm…
and hosted a series of lunches with our favorite designers, including Adam Lippes and Sally Lapointe.
In April, I had the honor of chairing the 60th Anniversary of the Art Ball for the Dallas Museum of Art (three years in the making after being canceled twice during COVID), raising $1.75 million for this important cultural institution. I am grateful for the incredible support I received, including the designers Tabitha Simmons of Tanner Krolle, Brandon Maxwell and Jeremy Scott that came to be part of a magical champagne-fueled weekend.
On 11/11, we “Let Loose” with artist Ashley Longshore and special guests Dee and Tommy Hilfiger, Stephen Webster and Corbin Chamberlin for pizza, more champagne, and a playlist that is still stuck in our heads (you can download it here). It was a perfect night until the police shut us down a bit earlier than planned (It happens).
A week later, we celebrated our newest gallery in River Oaks District with a party that (literally) will be known as the Night The Lights Went Out In…Houston.
What I learned is this…
Nothing ever goes exactly as planned. Nothing is ever perfect. But champagne always makes it okay.
You can never have enough candles and good lighting.
