Dixon Gallery trip to the Jean-Louis Forain opening at the Petit Palais, Paris 03.09.11

A group of Dixon Gallery trustees, donors, and interested individuals travelled to Paris for the March 9th opening of the Jean-Louis Forain exhibition at the Petit Palais.  Barbara Williamson, who was on the trip along with her husband, Lewis, her mother, Brenda Crain, and her sister, Kim Lowrance, says they were entertained by Manuel Schmidt, a third-generation Parisian art dealer, and by Waring Hopkins, as well as by Florence Valdès-Forain, the artist’s great-granddaughter.

Dale Skaggs, Director of Horticulture at the Dixon, led the group on garden tours, and Dixon Assistant Curator Julie Pierotti was on hand to ensure everything went smoothly. 

Others on the trip included Ann and Stephen Reynolds, Chairman of the Dixon Board, Irene and Joe Orgill, Adele Wellford, Suzanne and Neely Mallory, Jean Coors and daughters, Russell Whitehead and Ruthie Bowlin, Lucy and Tom Lee, Anne and Mike Keeney, Carmen Bond, Chantal Johnson, Penn and Gwen Owen, Stacy and Thomas Hussey, and Trish Ring.
