THE ART CROWD
SUITS UP


 

Last night, the best-dressed denizens of the art world came to art gallery Irvine Contemporary on 14th Street to celebrate Suit up! benefiting Suited for Change, a non-profit providing professional clothing and career skills to low-income women. Haven’t you heard that DC is now America’s art capital? Hey, we’re in an economic crisis and our museums are free

 

The Phillips Collection’s Kristy Kinney and Catherine Eisenmann, National Geographic Channel’s Sara Babiarz, Edelman’s Virginia Pond, and Sarah Coe, who is also from National Geographic. They were carefully dressed to match the Teo González piece that hangs behind them.

 

Navigant Consulting’s Ashleigh Barker, the Dep’t. of Health and Human Services’ Rehana Mwalimu, and the night’s event chair, lobbyist Barbara Merola. “We sold out yesterday!” said Barbara, thrilled with the turn out and the fact that not an ounce of red wine was spilled in the pristine space.

 

Irvine Contemporary’s Lauren Gentile, recently named an “art star” by DC Modern Luxury, The Corcoran Museum’s Megan Ann Harmon, State Department lawyer Holly Rich and the Corcoran’s Kristin Guiter. Megan Ann has a solution for the looming election’s bipartisan tension: join together as one united party called the Republicrats. The mascot? None other than the donkaphant. Maybe a separation of art crowd and state is in order instead.

 

Locks of Love, a non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to children suffering from medical hair loss, just received a gift from blogger Chandler Ramelli…13 inches of hair cut this weekend. Chandler is with Executive Search’s Andrew Reese and Irvine Contemporary founder and founding Director of Georgetown's graduate program in Communication, Culture, and Technology, Martin Irvine.


HANGING WITH HORTON’S KIDS
 

Yesterday evening we swung by the Arts Club of Washington at 20th & I for Back to School with Horton’s Kids. Horton’s Kids provides tutoring, mentoring, health and enrichment services to 144 children in the Anacostia neighborhood. Event chairs Mary Ellen Matheson, Liz Dougherty, Karin Walser, Debbie Winsor, and Gretchen King welcomed us.

 

Quinn Gillespie & Associates Walker Dimmig, Sarah Sunderman, Mark Sobin, and Liz McCurtain. Liz insisted we mention that coworker Rochelle Bearens designed her top. The high-powered blouse lobby is at it again.

 

Sophie and husband/architecture student Val Hawkins flank the National Commission on Energy Policy’s Lisel Loy. Lisel asked us about the energy source for the flash on our camera. Sure, the fumes may be noxious, but nothing generates a flash like 2 gallons of premium unleaded.

 

Maryland medical examiner J. Laron Locke, wife Stephanie, and JSA’s Bruce W. Dicker. Bruce is an avid motorcyclist and couldn’t help but gush about his 1976 BMW R99. Funny how motorcycle riders always find the medical examiners at a party.
