T he dozen or so parties that we attended that week included the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art luncheon hosted by Annemarie Dillard Jazic, Annika Cail, Amanda Shufeldt, and Christen Wilson at Sassetta. The Bentonville-based museum announced a major exhibition of legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz that will feature new, never-before-seen works alongside iconic works from the past decade … Headington Companies pivoted this year and, instead of hosting their annual Eye Ball, presented Eyeboretum, a three-day, all-ages affair with an imaginative garden experience. From futuristic reflective gardens to a hyper- preppy pink cafe and Surreal vegetable patches, the walk- though event turned a traditional arboretum stroll into a trippy, more artful direction. Headington also threw a reception dubbed the Penthouse Party on Saturday night in the former Mirador space on the top floor of Forty Five Ten. The invitee mix included local and international curators, artists, and collectors … Finally, your PaperCity team held its own art opening, vis-à-vis office party, with paintings by William Atkinson, who attended with his wife, Jacquelin Sewell. Many sold while we chatted up friends and swilled tequila. Not-to-miss was the Champagne Lallier dinner held on the penthouse level of The Joule. The evening kicked off with a cocktail hour before guests entered the space centered by a large tree installation. The menu paired dishes created by the hotel's executive chef, Mat Urban, with a curation of wines directly from Lallier's portfolio. Saks Fifth Avenue hosted a pop-up shopping experience as part of their top-client program, Saks Limitless. On Tuesday and Wednesday, clients were invited to shop from a selection of luxury merchandise inside the private penthouse suite at The Joule. For a private dinner, Saks partnered with the Dallas Contemporary in celebration of the museums spring exhibitions. It would be impossible to list everyone encountered that insanely busy week, but to name a few: Art advisors John Runyon, Nick Campbell, and Ashley Tatum; collectors Jessica Nowitzki, Muffin Lemak, Zoe Bonnette, Christen and Derek Wilson, Karla McKinley, and Janelle and Alden Pinnell; from the fashion world, Forty Five Ten colleagues Dianna Miller, Robin Wilkes, Anne Wallach, Jordan Jones Muñoz, and Kyle Branch; chair of Booker T. Washington's 2023 Flyinghorse Gala Lisa Moore; Klyde Warren Park president Kit Sawers; Meredith Land of NBC 5 News; Park House's Deborah and John Scott and Megan and Brady Wood; Fort Worth Modern curator Andrea Karnes; designer Doniphan Moore; recent West Coast transplant Kasey Lemkin; Channing Henry; Claire Grant; Nancy and Jeremy Halbreich; Peggy Sewell; and Missy Peck.
