Friday, September 10, 2010, Day 253


We went to four events tonight beginning with Ewerdt Hilgemann’s opening at Samuel Freemont Gallery at Bergamot Station. Here I am with Mr. Hilgemann (see May 19) standing in front of one of his wall pieces. It was a really beautiful show and so good to see Ewerdt and Antoinette again before their return to Amsterdam.

After the opening, we stopped by Marc Selwyn’s Gallery for the opening of Mimi Lauter’s show. Ms. Lauter is an exciting young artist who works in large scale pastels. She references old folk tales and tales from the bible to create these wonderful abstract visual allegories. Really beautiful stuff. And good for her: most of the pieces hanging in the gallery were sold before the night began.*

We had some time between that opening and the dinner at Marc Selwyn’s house so we stopped at the Andaz Hotel to visit our friend the designer Julia Clancey (see March 5). Julia was hosting an event in the bar area complete with a small pop-up shop to introduce her new Little Miss Clancey line. I was happy to see our friend Danny First’s work still installed in the lobby (see April 30).

After that, it was time for the dinner at Marc’s house in honor of Mimi Lauter. Marc has a gorgeous contemporary home filled with the most beautiful art. We always love going there and looking around at the pieces he’s decided to keep for himself. We ran into some old friends and made some new ones. What a terrific night!

I am wearing a dress by Lutz with my trusty (and very comfortable) Azzedine Allaia platform sandals. The tiger chain belt is vintage.

*Gary loved a large piece the Hammer Museum was considering. He was very happy the week when he learned that the Hammer went with a different piece by Mimi and the one he loved was his. He plans on hanging it in his new offices.
