Giant Champagne Corks, Supersized Lollipops and Crazy Candy Necklaces

Welcome to Ashley Longshore’s Pop Art Party World

BY // 09.28.17

What: Popping bottles to celebrate pop artist Ashley Longshore

Where: For Home Forty Five Ten

PC Moment: Wandering past giant champagne corks, super-sized lollipops, and colorful candy necklaces, we realized we had fallen down the rabbit hole into Ashley Longshore’s world – and we didn’t know if we wanted to come back.

Fans of the pop artist packed in to For Home Forty Five Ten to be a part of her first ever pop-up gallery and see her Insta-famous works live and in person – DJ Lucy Wrubel even took a break from turning up the volume to snag a piece of her own (she said it was either that or a new car).

Partygoers sipped Veuve Clicquot and Ashley’s “Don’t Tell Mama Martinis,” concocted with Zephyr Gin, rose vermouth, velvet falernum, and bitters.

In the center of the gallery room, a tiered, mad-hatter-esque tower offered sparkly, hand-painted macarons by We the Birds and a smattering of giant plastic pills.

In between bites, guests bid on a bedazzled Veuve Clicquot Jeroboam by Longshore to raise money for the Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center.

The artist, in a dramatic gold sequined robe, charmed guests with a personality to match her artwork – smart, bold, larger than life, and insanely fun – with a generous dash of glitter.

Who: Randall and Kara Goss, Frank and Marisa Howard, Max Trowbridge, Lynn McBee, Rob Dailey, Jessica Watkins, Kimberly Aston, Phillip Cottone, Katherine Reeves, Shannon Durst, Yola Risser, Erin Waks, Alison Kirkpatrick, Laura Black, Jackie Barausky, Kary Brittingham.
