Perhaps it was the parting of ways with his beloved 110-foot yacht, “Tie Breaker,” last August, but Stanley Korshak owner Crawford Brock with open collar announced that he just might go tie-less from now on. He revealed this news as he greeted more than 50 “2018 Art in Bloom: Power Of Flowers” fans including Pat McDonough, Jill Goldberg, Sarah Jo Hardin, Carol Resnick, Elaine Raffel, Martha Leonard, Mignon and Stuart Jones, Terry Irby and Clayton Irby, Melissa Lewis, Emily Maduro, Pat Pace, Suzanne Guthrie, Susan Fisk, Patra Fazel, Jolie Humphrey, Mary Lee Broder, Suzanne Caruso, Eleanor Casey, Susan Center and Robert Leibovitz and Joyce Sanders on Thursday, February 22, for “Party for the Paintings.”
With a guitarist playing in the shoe salon, Dallas Museum of Art League President Nancy Cates stood in for Art in Bloom Chair Dyann Skelton, who with husband John Skelton was making her way through the drought-ending cold rain that had been drenching North Texas all week.
While a guitarist strummed away in the shoe salon, guests checked out everything from designer baseball caps to Moynat handbags and luggage.
But the evening was for getting a sneak peak of two original works of art by the 2018 Art in Bloom featured speaker Michael De Feo that will be going home with some lucky winners the day of the Art in Bloom luncheon on Monday, March 26: “Untitled” (Doutzen Kroes by Duy Yo for Vogue Nederland, April 2016), 2016, acrylic on two magazine pages, 14 1/4″ x 20″ which will be featured in the live auction, and “Untitled” (Rosamund Pike by Masha Mel for L’Officiel, No. 1013, April, 2017), 2017, acrylic on magazine page, 11.75 x 8.625 inches, 14 3/4″ x 11 5/8″, as one of the raffle prizes for one lucky winner.
It was announced that the pieces of art would be on display at Korshak through Saturday, March 24.
An additional reveal was the addition of a second raffle package — a unique opportunity to have International Chef Craig James come to your home and prepare a meal for eight guests. Chef Craig James will provide a quintessentially British menu showcasing his credentials in modern British cooking and his impressive background with English Chefs, wine is also included. Raffle tickets are $25 each or 5 for $100.
