The Parrish Art Museum's annual Mid-Summer Party


The Parrish Art Museum's annual Mid-Summer Party is always one of the highlights of the social season attracting the Hamptons most prominent art collectors, artists, socialites, entertainers, philanthropists, and business leaders and this year was no exception. In fact, despite many attendees being disappointed that this would be the "last dance on Jobs Lane", the party was as hot as ever thanks to an energetic crowd and DJ Tom Finn who kept the dance floor pumping 'til the wee hours. The partygoers gave one last great hurrah before the Parrish, the oldest cultural institution on the East End, moves to its new Herzog & De Meuron designed home in Watermill.

The event co-chairs Debbie Bancroft, Carlo Bronzini Vender, Etta Froio, Dorothy Lichtenstein, Michéle Pesner, Douglas Polley, Frederic M. Seegal, Marcia Dunn Sobel and Alexandra Stanton warmly welcomed guests who then strolled through the Parrish�s current exhibition two photography exhibitions that paid homage to its surroundings � �The Landmarks of New York� and Liminal Ground: Adam Bartos Long Island Photographs 2009-2011. The Landmarks of New York comprises ninety photographs of New York City�s more than 1,200 landmarks, accompanied by descriptive and historical text. Liminal Ground features sixteen photographs that capture the evanescence of the everyday.

Then it was on into the cocktail tent where the elegantly be-gowned and be-jeweled ladies swirled around with their equally vibrantly attired gents, champagne flutes in hand, greeting old friends and making new ones. The Mid-Summer party is always the perfect mix of art world titans, entertainers, fashion heavyweights, social dynamos and Wall Street power players so the room was abuzz as a bee-hive. Smiling for the photogs were such as philanthropists Jean & Martin Shafiroff, , collectors Beth Rudin DeWoody and son Carlton DeWoody, Andrea & Mark Glimcher, artists April Gornik & Eric Fischl,   Lucy Puig & Jose Pincay, designer Berry Brown, Broadway producers Stewart Lane (in a   paisley Lily Pulitzer suit) and Bonnie Comley, publisher Jason Binn, Bruce & Avis Richards, Frances Hayward, Mildred C. Brinn, Patricia Duff, Patty Raynes, Donna & Richard Soloway, Tripoli Patterson & Jackie McKay,  Susan Madonia, Stacy Engman, Liliana Cavendish, Edmundo Dimundo, Yung Hee Kim, Sara Herbert Galloway, John Wegorzewski & Edward Callaghan, Gregory D'Elia, Helen Sandrow, Anke Jackson, , Fitz Ism,  Robin Cofer & Domenick D'Alleva, Nazee & Joseph Moinian, Sharon Bush, Roman & Dushy Roth, Geoffrey Bradfield & Roric Tobin, Whitney Fairchild, Dr. Neil Sadick, Ryan & Heather Ross, Dr. Heidi Waldorf, Dr. Erin Gilbert,  Alexandra Fairweather, Dr. Frank & Myra Weiser, Ivy Winick & Ken Dressler, Joan Macri & Paul Anthony.


During the elegant dinner prepared by Glorious Food that began with a papaya stuffed with shrimp, melon & hearts of palm in lime cilantro sauce followed by grilled tournedos of beef with a purée of potato and carrot, Parrish Museum Executive Director & guiding force  for the new museum, Terrie Sultan took to the stage to honor seven �unique creative forces on the East End that included director & choreographer Patricia Birch, artist Chuck Close, author/historian Barbara Goldsmith, interior designers Tony Ingrao and Randy Kemper, musician G.E. Smith (whose wife accepted his award), and choreographer Paul Taylor. Presenting them with huge white bouquets, Sultan said, �We hope that you think the new Parrish Art museum is the next great landmark of New York.


Following dinner, "After 10" Co-Chairs Anne Huntington, Carolina Portago, and Serena Stanfill Tufo flooded the room with the young set that came for abundant desserts and equally abundant cocktails under the gorgeously styled night sky projected above by Claire Bean Floral Event & Design.  DJ Tom Finn pumped up the volume and the close to 1,000 revelers partied with abandon. It was a night in heaven. After all, it was The last Dance on Jobs Lane.
