Standout moments of the evening included the Italian High Jewelry Maison Giampiero Bodino presenting his unique jewel-box exhibition with never-before-seen pieces inspired by the heritage and nature of Italy, and a collection of colorful trunks showcased from Maison Goyard. Personal favorites included works from Philadelphia based Wexler Gallery exhibiting work that coexists in the expressive realms of design, fine art and contemporary glass and ceramics, from Paris, Maria Wettergren Gallery had a show stopping sound absorbing sculpture SUN DISC, made from polyester threads, wood, textile, and glass wool, a gorgeous blend of colors and textures of French Art Deco appeared from Galerie Vallois Paris, and the most meaningful, colorful, and full of detail “Eclipse” rugs by Studio HVN designed for Gallery ALL inspired by solar and lunar eclipses.
