La Dolce Vita The Season October to May For decades now Avanti rates consistently as the very best Italian restaurant in Phoenix by just about every Valley publication and television station alike. It’s always been a gathering place for celebrities who want to dine quietly without a lot of fuss. Andrea Bocelli was spotted there just a few months ago. Merrymakers returning from the symphony, opera, downtown museums and the theater can be found there often. So it seemed fitting that just the other night famed chef, multiple restaurant owner and bestselling author Lidia Bastianich selected the Valley institution for her book signing and dinner. I don’t think anyone suspected she wouldn’t sell the place out. But when my people called me and told me they nearly had to turn people away I wasn’t the least bit surprised. As Phoenicians we are all guilty of being far too provincial. We stay in our box and seldom venture to shops and restaurants off our selected beaten path. If you haven’t been to Avanti lately I suggest you drop by. Remember that Patsy and Angiolo Livi are amazing philanthropists to our community. I suspect that is one of the great reasons, in addition to the amazing food, for their success! To know Jacquie Dorrance is to love her. She proved that the other evening at a very posh VIP reception for the Arizona Costume Institute. A group of benefactors gathered to mix and mingle

with the likes of Bob Mackie, Zandra Rhodes, Tatiana Sorokko and Isabel and Ruben Toledo all of international fashion fame (and all so incredibly nice). Brenda Howard, who chaired the night with Ms. Dorrance, made sure that every last detail was taken care of. It was simply amazing. And it was there that Ms. Dorrance announced to the small and well-high-heeled crowd that she had agreed to provide a very large endowment to secure the future of Dennita Sewell’s position with the Arizona Costume Institute. Everyone gasped! It’s no secret that the extremely knowledgeable and talented Ms. Sewell has taken ACI to soaring heights in her more-than-a-decade long post. Now thanks to the generous gift from Jacquie Dorrance, she’s ours to keep and that’s the best news I’ve heard in a long time. The next night, a huge crowd of people assembled to toast the costume institute in its entire splendor. The charismatic duo of Jo Watson and Jay Hoselton “the birdman,” brought the house down. I thought the music was a little too loud, but since we simply adore this chic musical pair, I’ll leave it at that. Melanie Dillman, Continued on page 10


La Dolce Vita – Continued from page 9 Judy Steers, (who I think is amazing), Janet Dillion Duval, Jacquie Dorrance, Brenda Howard and Barbara Kammerzell need to be thanked every time you see them for their tireless efforts and sold-out event they pulled off. It was extraordinary! However I think the Phoenix Art Museum needs to give Dennita Sewell and the ACI far more space than they did. After all this was the 50th Anniversary. I think the costumes should have blanked the lobby and Great Cummings Hall too. We returned to – you guessed it – Avanti for cocktails and a light dinner. This time the guest list included Marylou Stephens (Phoenix Theatre), Dana Jirauch, Carol Clemmensen, Bijen Dyrek, DeeDee and Ken Vecchione, Melanie Dillman, Deborah and Kevin Pshebniski and Lynne Love, just to namedrop a few ... When I joined the staff of Trends in 1994, then-publisher Danny Medina was very explicit about one thing, the Trends’ company policy since 1982. The publication expects two tickets ALWAYS if something should be considered for coverage. I must say that because of that policy, I met some amazing and interesting people due to this rule. Mr. Medina threw me to the wolves, giving me the Phoenix Heart Ball as my first official outing. I knew no one. I was well aware of two situations where the publication had been extended only one ticket or worse absolutely nothing. Mr. Medina socially obliterated two ladies before my eyes, never covering their events on his watch

again. A little more than a decade ago my wife, mother in law, myself and the rest of the McRae family chaired the Phoenix Symphony Ball. We filled the ballroom, gave the organization free ads in this publication on the festivities for a full year and delivered the blueribbon crowd that night. It was a tremendous success! The other day I was asked to attend an ”ultra-exclusive” dinner party. I let the PR contact at the Phoenix Symphony offices know what we had done successfully more than a decade before. I told her I was happy to help. Her response: “It’s sold out. You can come to take pictures for Trends, but you can’t stay.” Hell hath no fury like a publisher and past Symphony Ball chair scorned. You get the picture? In Cocktail Polo News You Should Know: That it’s high time several women stop showing off their family jewels and cover up. That an edit switch is desperately needed for a socialite who just can’t seem to keep her mouth shut. That you should not believe a word that comes out of a long-time doyenne’s lips. That it’s time for two women with identical haircuts to bury the hatchet. That you need to be very wary of a nasty recently married blonde, because your husbands are still not safe. That one of the kindest and most gracious gentlemen in the community is often sadly maligned. Now you’re all caught up for the next 15 minutes.

SPECTRUM OF COLOR The much anticipated Beach Ball broke from tradition this year and was held in a sprawling airplane hangar in North Scottsdale. A kaleidoscope of soft lights set the mood for a truly memorial evening.

ONE FANTASTIC CAUSE For decades now the Phoenix Children’s Hospital has been at the very forefront in research, cause and diagnosis of all the catastrophic childhood diseases. This year’s ball not only broke record attendance but also raised a much-needed amount of dollars.

Beth Ames Swartz paints A Story for the Eleventh Hour The creative and personal lives of Beth Ames Swartz demonstrate her belief in the transforming potential of positive human values in the life of artist and viewer alike. Wounded in her life (just as each of us bear our individual wounds), she makes of art and life a conscious journey to­ward greater self-realization with faith in finding happiness in the here-and-now. Swartz is teacher and student, a spiritual searcher and living creator who values all that is human.

A Story for the Eleventh Hour visualizes a biological and cosmological journey of the spirit that invites viewers to look into themselves and find their way. The image of a triune eye (the “I” of ego, the “Eye” of seeing, and the “Aye”of affirnation) as well as a rhyming counterpoint to this image, “Dying,” dominates the message imputed to the viewer. The works allude to poems by T.S. Elliot and theories by the English biologist and philosopher Rupert Sheldrake.

House of Anderson If you have driven down Scottsdale Road lately in Old Town, I am sure you have noticed House of Anderson. The famed, beautiful and extremely talented Missy Anderson has returned to Downtown Scottsdale yet again to put her Midas touch on this great space and introduce all of the finest finishes that create a beautiful home. Custom cabinetry, decorative tiles, marvelous countertop surfaces, floor coverings, exquisite lighting, furnishings and accessories are just a few of the product collections that make up this incredible find. When Ms. Anderson went looking for the newest and most unique interior finishes, she found that these materials weren’t easily accessible. She also wanted to invent a store that would inspire multiple design styles, all while catering to various project sizes and budgets. Judging from the surroundings, she has indeed made her mark. Remodeling or building a home should be an exciting experience. However, most homeowners that have endured one of these routines found their previous process stressful and taxing. Missy wants to ensure the customers and trade clients that pass-through House of Anderson enjoy their entire experience from start to finish. The design gallery is located in a magnificent former historical bank building and the original vault is still very much intact, giving this elegant store a vintage feeling of another time. House of Anderson is open from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM, Monday through Friday. Currently, weekends are by appointment only. This outstanding showplace is staffed with experienced design and sales consultants as well, so make sure you drop by! House of Anderson 3922 N. Scottsdale Rd Scottsdale, AZ 85251 480-947-2341

Spotlight on the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art This summer, Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art premieres artist Sama Alshaibi’s epic series, Silsila, in its completed form. Twenty-five large-scale photographs and videos interweave ethereal landscapes, the human form and the pattern and symmetry of Islamic art traditions. Traversing the Middle East, North Africa and the Maldives, her exquisite images provoke contemporary questions about borders, migration, and environmental demise in relationship with our bodies. Alshaibi’s Islamic heritage, her birth in Iraq to parents of Palestinian and Iraqi descent, and her transition from political refugee to American citizen inform these exquisite artworks.

Spotlight on the Heard Museum Fred Harvey, the man and his company, built on a legacy of high quality hospitality services to establish the American Southwest as a premier tourist focus. The company, together with its American Indian affiliates, developed and promoted the Grand Canyon, Southwestern sights and culture plus Native arts and crafts into world-class attractions. The legacy of Harvey and his company’s success remains ever-present in regional tourism and superlative Native arts. Harvey and his company are best known for their distinctive Harvey Girls and for being the first national hotel and restaurant enterprise. Opening April 9 at the Heard Museum, the ongoing exhibit, ‘Over the Edge: Fred Harvey at the Grand Canyon and in the Great Southwest’ tells the rest of the story: How behind the scenes, the Harvey enterprise, working with its partner the Santa Fe Railway, came to leave a lasting imprint on today’s Southwest.

operator Fred Harvey. The company realized this opportunity as a basis for developing a tourist business.

During the late 19th and 20th centuries, rail was the only convenient way to travel from the Midwest to Southern California. The Santa Fe’s route through northern New Mexico and Arizona provided a captive passenger access to lunchroom and hotel

The Grand Canyon was the perfect star attraction for travelers; who demanded not only sights, but room, board, personal expenses and keepsakes as well throughout their Southwest sojourns. The exhibit tells of the collaborative efforts of the two

This booklet, Story of the Grand Canyon, with its cover image by Fred Geary, was produced by the Santa Fe Railway in 1917.

This Bright Angel Lodge menu from 1947 with a Harvey Girl on the cover was from a painting by Doris Lee.

Joe Secakuku was hired by the Harvey Company in the 1920s to greet visitors to the Grand Canyon. Acting as interpreter and culture guide, it was Secakuku’s idea to don Plains-style feather headdress to make it easier for tourists to recognize “a real Indian” even though it is not typical attire for Southwest Native people.

companies who not only provided transportation and hospitality; but promoted the work of Navajo weavers, Pueblo potters, basket makers and jewelers to customers eager to purchase a souvenir of their adventure West by train.

Palm Springs Weekend

Most people don’t realize that Palm Springs became a celebrity mecca simply because of its geographic proximity to Los Angeles. From the 1940s thru the 60s, celebrities were bound by a “100 mile to studio” clause in their contracts for meetings and quick reshoots. Palm Springs quickly became the epicenter for all things rich and famous. Even today many credit Frank Sinatra with putting it on the map! The Architecture As early as the late 1940s, noted architects such as Richard Neutra and Albert


Frey began to design homes that reflected a harmony with the surrounding desert through a combination of post and beam construction, soaring plates of glass, enormous entry doors and Spartan landscape. It would become known as Mid-Century Modern. Other architects including: Robson Chambers, John Porter Clark, William F. Cody, A. Quincy Jones, Hugh Kaptur, John Lautner, Donald Wexler, George and Robert Alexander, E. Stewart Williams, William Krisel, Paul R. Williams and others would lay claim to the vast Coachella desert. All would become noted and world renowned

due to the effortless and simplistic approach to design. Then and Now The first time we visited Palm Springs in 2002 with Gnosis Media, the city was in a huge slump. Department stores and affluent car dealerships had all relocated to posh Rancho Mirage, Indian Wells and Palm Desert. Palm Springs had seen better days. There were foreclosures everywhere. It was borderline depressing. But 16 years and several television series and movies helped to propel the desert city to its current apex. Palm Springs

is once again swinging, baby. Real-estate auctions and waiting-in-line-to-buy sales are every day occurrences now. Home prices have sky rocketed, leaving the surrounding cities that once stole everything they could from Palm Springs tired and dated looking in a sea of Taco Bell-like architecture. Modernism Week Modernism Week held over Valentine’s Day week now attracts people from all over the world. It headquarters in the magnificent space vacated by the much-missed specialty store JW Robinson’s. The organization has arranged amazing tours throughout the city and into small parts of Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert and Indian Wells as well. There are self-guided as well as escorted tours, lectures, films and educational offerings that last all week.

Shopping Make sure you walk one side of Palm Canyon Drive and down the other so you don’t miss anything. Even the local liquor stores are architecturally significant! Drop by Trina Turk. The designer’s flagship is on the famous Drive. Don’t miss Mitchells for all things vintage. Every Mid-Century Modern furniture store in the world seems to flank the famous drive! Climate Change Like Phoenix, Palm Springs shares the same weather patterns. Avoid the summer, as the city almost closes down. The desert city has tons of lodging too. However during high season it’s almost impossible to find even a basic hotel/motel room. Drop by from October to May when cocktail shakers idle poolside and people stroll the famous streets, restaurants and shops in hip and cutting edge garb. Yes it’s that cool again!

Where to Eat Melvyn’s is still the stand alone Rat Pack experience. It has fantastic fare of Continental foods located in an historic Ingleside Inn. Sherman’s Deli is still one of the best spots for breakfast, lunch and dinner too. Get there early as it fills to capacity quickly. Recently opened Copley’s on Palm Canyon in the estate of Cary Grant has proved popular with the nouvelle cuisine epicurean. Eight4Nine is perhaps the hippest spot on Palm Canyon Drive to see and be seen. Their décor alone will blow you away! Just up the street is amazing Italian Lolivos Bistro rich with all things homemade and old Italy Maracas Palm Springs is still one of the best indoor/outdoor Mexican food restaurants within the city.

Spotlight on the Phoenix Art Museum This spring, Phoenix Art Museum presents Phoenix Rising: The Valley Collects, a new exhibition that highlights the most compelling works drawn from the Valley of the Sun’s most important private collections of visual art. With nearly 200 works spanning nearly 1,000 years, Phoenix Rising is emblematic of the increasing sophistication and cultural commitment of the city’s greater metropolitan area, the sixth largest in the nation. Organized by Phoenix Art Museum, the exhibition is a collaboration of the Museum’s curatorial staff working closely with 35 local collectors, including Drs. Barry and Coleene Fernando, Judy and Sidney Zuber, Mrs. Kelly Ellman, and Vicki and Kent Logan. “In many ways, the story of Phoenix Rising is similar to the story of Phoenix and its surrounding communities. As the city has grown over the decades, the achievements and individual passions of our art collectors have mirrored that growth,” said Amada Cruz, the Museum’s Sybil Harrington Director. “At Phoenix Art Museum we are excited to provide our community with unprecedented access to important works from some of the Valley’s most significant collections. But this is only a taste of the treasures that exist in our area collections, and we will present many more in the future.” The objects in Phoenix Rising reflect the collecting areas of Phoenix Art Museum itself, including modern and contemporary art, photography, and fashion design, as well as art of the American West, Asia, Europe and Latin America. The objects include ancient Native American pottery, Sri Lankan Buddhist art, as well as paintings and sculptures from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries, all of which forge a complex yet universal story of creativity and humanistic impulses. The exhibition includes some of the most recognized names in art, including artworks by Alexander Calder, Helen Frankenthaler, Philip Guston, Guillermo Kuitca, Ugo Rondinone, and Dana Schutz. The majority of objects in the exhibition have never before Carmen Herrera, Sunset, 2011. Acrylic paint on been on view to the public. canvas. Collection of Diane and Bruce Halle. “While the works of art featured in Phoenix Rising: The Valley Collects mirror the collecting areas of the Phoenix Art Museum,” says Selig Family Chief Curator Gilbert Vicario, “their installation in this exhibition opens up the possibility of seeing their potential relationships. Overlapping themes, formal convergences and cultural similarities reflect the complexity of our globalized society by underscoring our common interests.”

How did you get into the business? By accident, like all good things. I was writing for Town & Country and they sent me to Bangkok where I found a group of goldsmiths doing beautiful work but making unattractive jewelry. I took all of my husband’s frequent flyer miles and jumped in Who inspired your craft? I’m inspired by jewels of the past especially the Etruscans and the Etruscan revival jewels of the late 19th century. What do you consider your greatest achievement? My greatest achievement is the fact that I’m still in business after close to thirty years! What’s your worst habit? I am a huge procrastinator but I work well under pressure. I’m also a ‘constructive pessimist’ so I spend a lot of time assuming worst case scenarios and then inventing solutions to problems that aren’t there. When do you fib or exaggerate? I never fib but I am prone to hyperbole. What 7 people living or dead would you invite to a dinner party? If we include the departed the parameters are too vast so I’ll limit it to the living: Queen Elizabeth, Warren Buffett, Christine Lagarde, Bill Murray, Saiorse Ronan (I’d like to see her eyes in person), Bob Odenkirk, and David Sedaris Who are your everyday hero’s? The countless kind-hearted, altruistic people who dedicate themselves to helping others.

New York, Aspen, Vail, Chevy Chase, MD, Houston, Palm Desert, Atlanta, Seattle, San Francisco, Birmingham, MI, Cleveland, Chestertown, MD

What jewelry designers or companies do you admire? Buccellati, but in the old days before they were bought out. And Castellani in the 19th century. What individual would you like to design something for? Anyone who would give me free rein and no budget!

Brief Encounters by Dick Cavett Reviewed by Bill Dougherty

There is perhaps no one more closely associated with the talk show in the late 1960s and 70s then Dick Cavett. From presidents to celebrities, the man in the swivel chair welcomed some of the most famous people in the world to his show. He did so with amazing wit, intellectual conversation and sometimes heated exchanges. Brief Encounters released late last year showcases some of the most amazing interviews ever given to a talk show host. Mr. Cavett tackles everyone from Author Godfrey to John and Yoko and stops to celebrate his lasting friendships with The Burtons, Groucho Marx, Jack Parr, Jack Benny, Jonathan Winters and Bob Hope. Mr. Cavett is nice to almost all, yet is extremely critical of Vietnam, Gulf Wars and politicians who led the country to battle but themselves were deferment-seeking draft dodgers. This is a quick read. It spares the boring early biographical blah blah by condensing everything into a few short pages. Others should take Dick Cavett’s lead. Let’s face it, few care how someone who became famous really grew up. Anyone interested in world affairs, athletes and celebrities should read this book. It’s easy, quick and wastes no time getting to the meat of each subject.

“The Least Likely To Succeed” By Jack Clifford

Reviewed by Bill Dougherty It’s no secret that long time Valley resident Jack Clifford started The Food Network and sold it for enormous profits. But what you didn’t know is that Mr. Clifford really had no intention of ever being in the television business. The Least Likely to Succeed is a great and easy read written by a true empire builder who rose to great fame in the late 1950s when Phoenix was a tiny town. We journey through a truly amazing life with each turn of the page. This is a fascinating look into the life of television in its infancy during the late 1950s to the explosion of cable in the mid-1980s and everything in between. It is filled with witty chapters on everything from raising children, making the perfect dinner and running a television station all at the same time. But things don’t stop there. Jack Clifford would become the soft spoken genius of numerous cable triumphs that included the Food Network and Dancing with the Stars just to mention a couple. Anyone interested in broadcasting should read this book. It shows the reader that anyone can eventually have the Midas touch through hard work, dedication to your dreams, a very positive attitude and an excellent sense of humor. Jack Clifford is not only a gentleman and a scholar, but also a true humanitarian who continues to give back to a country that has been so good to him.
