{off to nyc this week}

So I am off to NYC this coming week for CAA. I am looking forward to enjoying the sights & sounds of the city again...hoping to eat some great food, sip some yummy wine, visit with friends, & hear some inspiring art historians.
On Thursday night I'm attending a Courtauld Alumni Reception, "A celebration of Cézanne's Card-Players at The Met." The reception will take place in the home of Courtauld alumna and gallery owner, Eugenia McGrath Korossy, and will include various presentations, & most importantly, wine & mingling! If Korossy's Bahamian home is anything to go by, featured on Elle Decor, I think we're in for a treat:

This is a chance to meet other Courtauld alumni in North America, but also to celebrate the Cézanne's Card Players exhibition (organized by The Courtauld Gallery), which opens that same week at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
I am staying in Manhattan this time. I've booked a hotel near the Hilton Conference Hotel & am looking forward to being smackdown in the thick of things, just a saunter from Central Park, the New York Public Library, & the shops on 5th Avenue. Blogs to follow for sure, so stay tuned.


  1. Do fill me in on Korossy's home. I'm sure it will be lovely!

  2. will do--I'll see if I can snap some pics too!
