Accents: Highlights of the March Issue

An emphasis on some of the best moments of the new issue, springtime events, a trip to the archives and more.

The Artist Behind the Sculptures

Just days after we photographed Garbo Hearne inside her gallery, the surrounding pieces were carefully packed up and shipped on to the exhibit’s next stop. The sculptor behind them, Michael Chukes (who is known professionally as Chukes), lives in California, but his father grew up in nearby Scott. “A Breath of Fresh Air” is not the first exhibit he’s brought to Hearne Fine Art, and we certainly hope it’s not the last.

Faux Pas Archives

Some of you may remember Easterseals Fashion Event co-chair Emily Young as the one-time owner of Faux Pas, a boutique that closed its Pleasant Ridge Town Center doors in 2013. It was during her Faux Pas era that Young helped launch the first-ever Fashion Event, and we couldn’t resist taking a trip into the Soirée archives to dig up this fabulous June 2010 photo of Barbara Graves sporting a stylish sun hat from, of course, Faux Pas.
