We’re Two x Two Excited


After hearing all about Monday night%26rsquo;s TWO x TWO Highlights Exhibition party hosted at Sotheby%26rsquo;s NYC headquarters, we are seriously regretting not having booked a flight to La Guardia in a New York minute. We%26rsquo;ve just caught up with Melissa Meeks, the director of TWO x TWO for Aids and Art benefitting amfAR and the Dallas Museum of Art and she couldn%26rsquo;t stop raving about the event. Gala co-chairs John Benjamin Hickey, Joyce Goss, and Gary Tigges jetted to New York, too, joining longtime TWO x TWO hosts Cindy and Howard Rachofsky and the art world%26rsquo;s cr%26egrave;me de la cr%26egrave;me %26mdash; think top-notch gallerists, artists and collectors. The talk of the town? Everyone was aflutter about the auction preview and its 37 masterpieces from artists including Hernan Bas, Andro Wekua, Florian Maier-Aichen, Robert Heinecken, Liza Lou, Jim Hodges and Ervin Wurm. But it was a painting by 2011 honoree Mark Grotjahn that garnered top stares. We can only imagine the bidding war that will take place when the piece, valued at $675,000, goes on the auction block %26mdash; Grotjahn%26rsquo;s work is the highest valued donation in TWO x TWO history. Among the gallery gawkers? Fashion darling Thakoon, Cond%26eacute; Nast owners Victoria and Si Newhouse, Sotheby%26rsquo;s chairman Jamie Niven and Simon Preston of Simon Preston Gallery in NYC. Fret not if you missed the Big Apple sneak-peek%26nbsp;%26mdash; it%26rsquo;s just one month till the already-sold-out event at The Rachofsky House on Saturday, October 22. We wouldn%26rsquo;t miss that f%26ecirc;te for the world. For more TWO x TWO scoop, click 2x2online.org.
