Celebrating Norm Parish

Millennium Arts Salon - In cooperation with many Arts organizations will join in celebrating the life of Norman Parish on Saturday Afternoon, November 2, 2013.
Norman Parish and the Parish Gallery of Georgetown has meant so much to so many: visual artists from around the world...the book signings and artist talks...the photography community...the collectors...the celebrities...the Art Dealers Association...his many, many gallerist friends...All of us have benefited from that signature smile, that stentorian voice, that wonderful jazz, and that conviviality that was so much of the experience fostered by Norm Parish and his widow Gwen through 22 years, 170 exhibitions, and countless special events at the Gallery. 

Let's celebrate Norm's life, and gather to recommit ourselves to embracing each other in the community of art fans and patrons so beautifully fostered at the Gallery.
