OBSESSIONS. DECORATION. SALIENT FACTS. T he gavel was about to slam down on Dallas Auction Gallery earlier this year before it was acquired by a trio of Texas art and antiques specialists. The new owners are Patrick Jones and Reyne Hirsch of Patrick Jones Gallery in Dallas, along with auctioneer David Lewis, c o - o w n e r o f Lewis & Maese A n t i q u e s & A u c t i o n s i n H o u s t o n . K n o w n f o r 1 8 t h - a n d 19th-century antiques and fine art, the 22-year-old Dallas Auction Gallery is among the most respected in the southwest. Says Hirsch: "We will continue to offer a great variety of antiques, but we also plan to feature more mid-century and contemporary sales, as the market is shifting towards those eras." The business will also continue selling Asian antiques, along with quarterly collections of estate jewelry and fine timepieces. "We don't aspire to be a typical auction house selling a broad range of items," Hirsch says. "Our objective is to organize auctions focused on distinctive discoveries in specific categories." Upcoming auctions include 20th Century Design, April 9; Ceramics, April 11; and Fine Jewelry and Timepieces, April 23. Follow auctions live and bid online at Rebecca Sherman Sold! Retail: Luxury nirvana Highland Park Village is always a place to shop and be seen. Up at The Conservatory on Two (between Chanel and Park House), meet Alberta Ferretti Thursday, April 4, 2 to 4 pm, at her Fall 2024 trunk show, which includes an exclusive capsule collection for the swan song of TWO x TWO for AIDS and Art (yes, sadly we've been told it's the final year), with a portion of sales benefiting the fundraiser in October. This will be the first Dallas appearance for the Italian designer best known for her ethereal and airy dresses. Brian Bolke's The Conservatory will also be the only U.S. location for Moschino's 40 Years of Love collection (see page 26 for details) … One of our favorite jewelers, Ylang 23, owned by Joanne and Charles Teichman, is moving closer to sister boutique Wildlike (the younger sibling, we think, since it's run by daughter Alysa Teichman, and is all about the newest in ear piercing) at The Shops of Highland Park. The new location will be larger than the former space at The Plaza at Preston Center, with exciting new shops in a shop. They're targeting May 1 as the opening date. Daydreaming: Here's something we look forward to every year: Occurring alongside the Dallas Art Fair, Headington Companies presents The Eyeboretum from April 5 through 14. This immersive garden experience across from The Joule hotel and next door to Forty Five Ten is under the watchful eye of Tony Tasset's monumental Eye sculpture (aka The Giant Eyeball).
