I love the Christmas Season, but it is so refreshing to find a city that does not rush Christmas décor before Thanksgiving (which is my favorite holiday, for sure) …and Scottsdale is THE find, because they are still celebrating Fall in November! Here, I am Falling for the Arts at The Calvin Charles Gallery. This gallery is Scottsdale’s premier contemporary art gallery and the most beautiful custom building in the Scottsdale Art District. When I crossed the gallery’s threshold, I was immediately captivated by the PASCAL exhibit. The artist, Pascal Pierme is a sculptor who works with precious woods. The way he describes working with the natural organic woods…is reminiscent of my personal conversations with Master Diamond Cutter, Sir Gabriel S. Tolkowsky. “Gabi”, as he is known to his closest friends, cut many of the world’s most famous diamonds and I was privileged to accompany him on his US tours for two consecutive years. I learned that organic treasures (e.g. natural diamonds and precious woods) participate to help define what they will become in the hands of a talented and skilled artist.
