Christies in heart of Rockefeller Center hosts many prestigious events highlighting some of finest art and jewelry in the entire world. The space at Christies is quite sprawling and amazing.

The Vital Forces: Animating The Modern American Still Life was hosted by Jennifer Klaus, Head of Sale, American Art and a lecture by Mark D. Mitchell, Ph.D, the Associate Curator of American Art, Manager of the Center for American Art of Philadelphia Museum of Art. The American Art's online-only sale, Jacob Lawrence Works from the Collection of the Gwendolyn Knight Lawrence Trust, which runs through March 4th, 2014.

The featured painting was by John Graham (1881-1961) Still Life with Recorder and Cards oil on canvas which goes for $20,000-$30,000 in Christies American Art sale in New York.

Mark D. Mitchell's lecture was engaging as well as educational. Guests and potential art collector's learned about the intricate layers and interpretation of each piece in the show. Afterwards, a Q and A followed and cocktail reception downstairs at Christies and Mark D. Mitchell was gracious as well as friendly to everyone in attendance.

Alpaca clothing might be the newest luxury fiber to take off. Softer to the touch than cashmere, The Alpaca Project displayed alpaca wool designs from many famous names including: Nanette Lepore and Timo Weiland (Timo was also the resident dj for the evening).

The design project helps alpaca artisans in Peru and supports local communities through ethical fashion. At the Prince George Ballroom, three live alpacas, much like some of the models at FW, graced the runway for photos and members of the media could pet, touch and meet the alpaca's in person.
