Parties
Listing 1286-1290 of 1369

The Young Friends of the Philadelphia Museum of Art (or as we say, the YF of PMA) held their 2001 Holiday party at the Philadelphia Club, December 7th. The lively bunch nearly doubled their numbers from last year's party. That, combined with the music, crackling fire, and open bar made for one of the merrier holiday parties around.
 
Princess Grace Kelly's collection of exquisite jewels and fairytale dresses were on display at Caldwell Jeweler's luxe Philadelphia location. At a champagne reception guests milled around display cases, oohing and ahhing over the jewels, collectibles and glassware. Gene London was a most gracious host, spreading his infamous cheer throughout the crowd. At one point, yours truly was asked to slip into one of Princess Grace's dresses and walk around attempting to look regal. I managed not to trip, hiccup, or split the seams. The Princess would have been proud.
 
On December 1st, the Women's Board of the American Cancer Society presented the Crusader's Ball at the Hyatt Regency at Penn's Landing. After a two-hour cocktail hour, allowing ample time for everyone to mingle throughout the different rooms and look at the auction items, guests were treated to dinner and then danced to the Joseph Claffy Band.
 
Calderwood Gallery relocated to a beautiful 19th Century townhouse and threw a party to celebrate their new fin de siecle digs. Janet and Gary Calderwood specialize in fine French Art Deco, Modernist and 1940's furniture and objects. The champagne flowed for a few hours (not, of course, on the chic, yet simple Ruhlmann chairs, mind you), and Neil Stein himself popped in to check on Avenue B's delicious appetizers.
 
The Clay Studio, a Philadelphia Ceramic Arts haven, recently held a three-day weekend, November 9th to the 11th, to celebrate the ceramic artists and collectors with a series of lectures, house tours, gallery receptions, an auction, and the piece de resistance, a Grand Buffet dinner held at Norman and Suzanne Cohn's house. The Cohns are generous patrons of the arts as well as avid collectors of ceramic, glass, precious metals and craft art. The dinner was produced by their private chef, Tony Clark, and eaten with relish (not the green kind) by more than 85 guests throughout the Cohn's wonderfully original home.
