P-ART-Y TIME! With 78 national and international art dealers in town for the Dallas Art Fair, the fourth annual event distinguished itself as one of the most exciting weeks of the year. An exclusive preview gala, benefiting the Nasher Sculpture Center and Dallas Contemporary, marked the official launch of festivities at Fashion Industry Gallery, where nattily dressed art collectors and tastemakers alike mingled. Local notables Max and Jacqueline Anderson, Marguerite Hoffman, Gene Jones, Janelle and Alden Pinnell, Deedie Rose and Christen Wilson walked among visitors such as New York art types Dogan Perese, Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld and E.V. Day. With bites by Rosewood Mansion and sips from Ruinart and Moët Hennessy USA, the crowd went from art preview to outright party to after-party at the Mansion—just how we like it. OFF CAMPUS Neiman Marcus Downtown hosted a kickoff soirée; the Rosewood Crescent’s lobby paired up with NYC’s Salomon Contemporary for a Ruinart Champagne toast; and Modern Luxury Dallas sponsored a welcome dinner at Arcodoro & Pomodoro. Artists were out in full force with Erick Swenson at the Nasher and Jacob Kassay at The Power Station, while the Dallas Biennale included Adam McEwen at The Goss-Michael Foundation and Erwin Wurm at the Dallas Contemporary.
