Brussels' Accessible Art Fair Comes to New York

Mable Yiu

This past Tuesday, we had the pleasure of joining Accessible Art Fair's Brussels-based Founder, Stephanie Manasseh (who was recently featured in our November CAVU edition), and New York Partner Maria Van Vlodrop, to celebrate their upcoming launch in New York. Scheduled for next fall, this new art fair strives to break the barriers between the artist and the buyer by representing individual artists and designers, rather than galleries.

The reception was held at a private residence on the Upper East Side, with a variety of hors d'oeuvres and Neuhaus chocolates. Guests were seen sipping apple prosecco, provided by Cliffton Dry, and enjoying an exclusive tasting of Hottie Tottie, in the flavor green tea lemon honey. Hottie Tottie, an organic beverage and mixer created by Fairweather Magazine's founders, is set to launch in 2016.

Last night, Fairweather partnered with Fountain House, an amazing organization with the belief that people living with mental illness can be active participants in their own and other people's recovery, at their annual art benefit, “Mad About Art.” Located at Metropolitan West in midtown Manhattan, the event featured works by Fountain House Gallery artists, as well as a silent auction consisting of luxury items and experiences. All auction sales went to Fountain House Gallery, which provides an environment for artists living and working with mental illness to pursue their personal visions. An amazing turnout led the gallery to exceed their goal of raising $30,000 for a new studio space, where Fountain House artists can collectively create and collaborate in a safe place.

Volunteers, dressed as flight attendants, greeted guests with passport-themed programs, creating a jet-setting atmosphere for the evening, while the menu featured cuisines from around the globe. Details such as fall-inspired floral arrangements, created by Fountain House Horticulture members, and lively music enhanced the excitement and beauty of the evening.

The highlight of the event was the diverse array of Fountain House artists’ work, curated by Phong Bui, Agnes Gund, Matthew Higgs and Frank Maresca. Guests mingled with the artists, who shared their inspirations, stories, and creative processes. “Mad About Art” emphasized the incredible vision of Fountain House and Fountain House Gallery, as embodied in the successes of these artists.

Dessert in Bed

We’re back! Last night Fairweather returned to Coco-Mat in Soho for “Dessert in Bed,” our second event with some of Instagram’s biggest influencers.  We were joined by some of our favorite food bloggers that we first met at our “Breakfast in Bed” event this summer.  In addition, we were joined by beauty, fashion and lifestyle bloggers. Everyone exchanged Instagram handles and enjoyed taking pictures with each other and of course the delicious food in the comfort of the Coco-Mat beds.   

You can see photos tagged from the event on Instagram by looking at #DessertInBed.

Financier Patisserie provided us with a great array of sweet and savory options.  We sampled the wild rice salad with pumpkin and pesto pasta with caramelized onions, both exclusively on the catering menu.  To satisfy our sweet tooth, there was a great assortment of miniature pastries, including mini cakes, tortes and éclairs.  And, of course, we all tried Financier Patisserie’s famous macarons.  We especially loved the Wild Cherry and Chocolate flavored macaron, their newest fall edition to the menu.  

We hope everyone had a sweet day – we know we did!

About Last Night

fairweather enterprises

Last night the Fairweather team hosted our Summer Soiree at Hotel Americano, a trendy boutique hotel that recently opened in Chelsea.  The soiree doubled as a celebration of the launch of the Summer 2015 edition of Fairweather and a fundraiser for charity: water, a nonprofit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations.

Guests enjoyed drinks and hors d’oeuvres on the outdoor patio of Hotel Americano, while getting to watch the beautiful Manhattan sunset.  Fairweather readers and friends had the chance to catch up with old friends and make new connections.  

Everyone also enjoyed taking pictures in the photo booth! You can check out the photos here

Our silent auction featured a great assortment of items to bid on.  Auction items included dinner at high-end steakhouse, American Cut, courtesy of LDV Hospitality; two pillows of the winner’s choice from Coco-Mat; a stay at luxury hotel, Topping Rose House, in Bridgehampton; a bottle of perfume made from all-natural fragrances courtesy of Lurk; a silk flower-crown making workshop for two with the ladies of Something May; a catered breakfast at the office for ten from Financier Patisserie; and a one-year Fairweather Access membership.

As the clock struck ten, guests began bidding their farewells, putting their last bids in for the auction and taking their final photo booth pictures.  On the way out guests received a wonderful gift bag.  Inside guests were delighted to find organic sour gummy bears and jelly beans courtesy of Surf Sweets; a bundle of postcards with incredible photographs of New York City courtesy of FramingNY; a couple of coffee pods and a voucher for a complimentary coffee courtesy of Corso Coffee; a delicious pastry from Financier Patisserie; a North Fork Gift postcard; a discounted Glossy Box subscription, which delivers a monthly package of beauty products to each subscriber’s doorstep; and of course, a copy of the newest edition of Fairweather.

It was a really fun evening and we appreciate everyone coming out to celebrate and support our fundraising efforts for charity: water.

Picnic in Central Park

Yesterday evening Fairweather hosted a pop-up picnic in Central Park on a sunny summer evening in collaboration with Something May, a Brooklyn based flower shop.  Sarah Haman of Something May helped teach our guests how to use fresh-cut flowers to make beautiful flower crowns, the perfect summer accessory. Everyone’s crown represented her unique, personal style and everyone was excited to show them off.
 
After all the guests were adorned with their flower crowns we munched on delicious macarons and other cookies courtesy of Financier Patisserie, who luckily has a store only a few blocks away from our office in Midtown in addition to more stores downtown.  We also had the opportunity to sample four flavors of hummus provided by upstate hummus company, Ithaca Hummus
 
As the sun set in Central Park we packed up our picnic basket and rolled up our picnic blankets.  We can’t wait to wear our new flower crowns to more events this summer.

Yesterday morning we hosted “Breakfast in Bed,” a breakfast for some of New York’s top food bloggers and food lovers, in Soho at Coco-Mat, a bedding store featuring sleep products made from all natural materials.  

The food bloggers in attendance included @I_Actually_Ate_That, @BeFatBeHappy, @Food@JeaniusNYC, @PlateinProgress, @TheJudyLab, @UnbuttoningPants@CheatDayEats, @HungryObsession, @NomNomNYCGirls, @GlutenFreeFollowMe, @NYCFoodieFinder, @HiddenGemofNYC@MattBruck, and @GratuitousOddity.  It was fun watching all the bloggers use their individual techniques to capture the perfect shot for their blogs and Instagram accounts, using the hash tags #BreakfastInBed and #WakeUpWithFairweather.

All the guests enjoyed a breakfast feast courtesy of our generous sponsors, while testing out Coco-Mat’s comfortable beds.  Pain d’Avignon provided an array of delicious breads and spreads, a variety of croissants and a wonderful quiche.  

For the sweets lovers among us, Sprinkles provided us with a great selection of cupcakes, including red velvet, black and white and pistachio. In addition, there were many beverages to choose from, including Coco-Mat’s freshly squeezed juices, Topping Rose House’s rosé, Franciacorta’s sparkling wine and Stumptown’s freshly brewed ice coffee.  Corso Coffee also provided us with yummy bombalini, traditional Italian doughnuts.  As an added bonus, Lurk Beauty, a perfumery that uses only essential oils, provided us with the full line of their perfume oils and EDTs.

As everyone bid farewell to old and new friends, the guests received another pleasant surprise – gift bags!  Inside of Coco-Mat’s mini totes, the guests received copies of the Summer 2016 print edition of Fairweather, coupons for a complimentary coffee from Corso Coffee, lavender-scented sachets from Coco-Mat and tasty Justin’s nut butter squeeze packs.  One last piece of exciting news… we are already beginning to plan a part two of the event.  See you there!

Victory Club

Last weekend Fairweather and Victory Club’s Stephanie Nass hosted an intimate lunch at a private residence in the Hamptons. Victory Club, a supper club that brings together friends of friends over the culinary and visual arts, hosts bi-monthly events in art-oriented venues. The beautiful Shelter Island home facilitated this weekend’s art conversation on legendary artists, such as Chamberlain, Lichtenstein, and de Kooning, who were inspired by the surroundings of the East End. 

We kicked off the afternoon with conversation and rosé, provided by Topping Rose House, by the flower garden and pool. The guests were seated at a lovely lunch table–decorated with Kim Seybert placemats and fresh flowers–as Nass read the menu, which included Watermelon Salad, Long Island Duck, and Peach Pie. While dining, guests enjoyed looking atFairweather’s Summer 2015 issue and sampling perfume from Lurk Beauty.  

A trip to Sunset Beach was the perfect ending to a wonderful afternoon!
