Last October, after curating private art projects all over the world, Blair Voltz Clarke finally opened her first brickand-mortar—and eponymous—gallery in the heart of New York City’s Upper East Side. To commemorate a successful first year of showings and collaborations, she brought together some of its choice artists and supporters for a stylish afternoon soiree inside the space. Guests such as Moskov fashion designer Khristine Mejia Catacutan and interior decorator Anna Burke noshed on homegrown dishes from neighborhood favorite August while admiring colorful artworks from Holland Cunningham, Sara Genn, and Natasha Law. The simple tablescapes included paintbrush place settings, abstract paintings by Cunningham, and white amaryllis floral bouquets from L’olivier—allowing the cocktails and cuisine to take center stage. “The artists we represent here are more like family,” Clarke explains. “So it was a no-brainer to host a celebration here to wrap up a remarkable first year.”
