Art Ball 2016 raises $1.3 Million for the DMA



DALLAS – May 2, 2016 – The Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) hosted Art Ball 2016: Art + Architecture with more than 400 guests on Saturday, April 23, 2016, at the Dallas Museum of Art. Ann and David Sutherland served as this year’s Art Ball Co-chairs.

Guests arrived to a red architectural display of the Dallas skyline and an oversized blueprint of the DMA that served as a step and repeat, which touted Entertainment Sponsors Nancy and Richard Rogers; Silent Auction Sponsors Jennifer and John Eagle;

Red Carpet Sponsor Neiman Marcus; Patron Party Sponsors Forty Five Ten and The Joule Hotel; After Party Sponsor Stanley Korshak; Security Sponsor Sidley Austin LLP; Auction Sponsor Christie’s; Dinner Sponsors Peggy and Carl Sewell; Invitation Sponsor Dallas Art Fair; Travel Sponsor Durham Family Foundation; Financial Services Sponsor J.P. Morgan; and Goldman, Sachs & Co. as the Catalogue and Program Sponsor. 

During the cocktail hour, guests sipped on mixology cocktails from Luxury Cocktail Sponsor Belvedere Vodka and Hennessy Cognac while they bid on an eclectic mix of experiences, art and gorgeous decorative items curated by Silent Auction Chair, Gonzalo Bueno. Top bidding was on Nicolas Alquin’s Diapason sculpture, featuring old oak with burned patina and lime, and a Presidential Live Oak, grown at the prestigious ranch of President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush in Crawford, Texas.

At 7:45 p.m., a 30-foot tall curtain dramatically opened revealing another Todd Events masterpiece of contemporary reds, greens, and yellows.  Sprays of yellow florals, moss drenched chandeliers, and oversized head tables in the shape of a plus sign tied the room into a sensory wonderland. 

The Dallas String Quartet provided lively and electric dinner entertainment while patrons feasted on a multi-course dinner catered by Cassandra Fine Catering, which included lobster, duck and fish courses.  The live auction, assembled by interior architectural designer Trisha Wilson and sponsored by Christie’s, proved spectacular with items including a Dallas sports package, Napa Valley Wine country getaway and an African Safari at the Izingwe Lodge, a private South African lodge home on the 82,000-acre Welgevonden Private Game Reserve, located in the Waterburg mountain region.

Following dinner, After Party Co-chairs Rachel and Michael Osburn welcomed guests to the Hamon Atrium and Eagle Family Plaza for Folly at the Art Ball, sponsored by Stanley Korshak and presented by the DMA Junior Associates. DJ Lucy Wrubel and Georgia Bridgwater Orchestra provided music while guests danced and mingled, and tickets were available for entrance into a raffle for the not-yet-released in the United States, Jaguar F-Pace Prestige SUV, courtesy of Automotive Raffle Sponsor Park Place Jaguar



Guests included: Co-chairs Ann and David Sutherland, Dallas Museum of Art Interim Director Walter Elcock, Micki and Mayor Mike Rawlings, Dallas Museum of Art President Catherine Rose, Will Rose, Brian Bolke, Nancy Rogers, Cindy and Howard Rachofsky, Elaine and Neils Agather, Andy Beal, Olya Sinitsyna, Deedie Rose, Peggy and Carl Sewell, Margaret McDermott, Jennifer and John Eagle, Kelli and Allen Questrom, Lance Bass, Candice and Tony Romo, and After Party Co-chairs Rachel and Michael Osburn.

Proceeds from Art Ball directly affect the DMA’s commitment to providing free access to its collection and to a wide range of exhibitions and educational and public programs.   


Established in 1903, the Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) is among the 10 largest art museums in the country and is distinguished by its commitment to research, innovation and public engagement. At the heart of the Museum and its programs is its global collection, which encompasses more than 23,000 works and spans 5,000 years of history, representing a full range of world cultures. Located in the nation’s largest arts district, the Museum acts as a catalyst for community creativity, engaging people of all ages and backgrounds with a diverse spectrum of programming, from exhibitions and lectures to concerts, literary events, and dramatic and dance presentations. Since the Museum’s return to free general admission in 2013, the DMA has welcomed more than two million visitors, and enrolled more than 100,000 people in DMA Friends, a free program available to

anyone who wishes to join focused on active engagement with the Museum. For more information, visit DMA.org.

Ed Hall reception Oct. 30 at Ilume benefits animals

1 S-Scapes

Contemporary Dallas Painter Ed Hall Creates An Evening of Art to Benefit Dallas Companion Animal Project, Dallas Animal Services, and Cat Matchers

Artist Opening Reception Oct. 30, features new art and the opportunity to adopt a pet, and save an animal’s life.

Ed Hall Press Release Benefit Oct 30 2015 at ilume Gallerie

Contemporary minimalist artist Ed Hall joins ilume® Gallerie and Dish, Cedar Springs, for a benefit evening reception by the ilume® Foundation For The Arts, October 30, 6pm-9pm that will feature the artist’s small and large scale acrylic paintings and framed color washes. The month long show from Oct.30-Nov. 21, 2015, will benefit Dallas Companion Animal Project, Dallas Animal Services, and Cat Matchers. Evening guests of the Opening Reception will have the oppor- tunity to love, rescue and adopt a pup, dog, kitten, or cat from the patio of Dish restaurant, located next to the gallery. Cocktails and complimentary valet parking will be available. The show is free and open to the public. www.ilumegallerie.com, www.ilume.com

About Artist Ed Hall. “Many of my paintings are abstract landscapes that reflect parts of nature. I’m interested in the worn and weathered elements found in the environment with a focus on color, texture, and pattern. By applying these observations, they are used to add my personal experience and to influence my work.” “With an approach to painting that is spontaneous and intuitive, I begin to apply multiple layers of paint. The beginning stages develop, as I randomly scrape, erase, and add markings to the surface. I concentrate on the contrast of light and dark, rough and smooth, and transparent and opaque.” Hall’s surface is an important aspect and a concern in the final stages. Once again, the influence of nature and environment appear.. With more accidental and intentional altering, and any additional adjustments, the image emerges to complete the painting.

Ed Hall Opening Reception Benefit Invite Oct 30
