In Focus: Ariane Dart annual garden tea party

National Gallery director Natalie Urquhart presents Ariane Dart with a sculpture to thank her for her efforts in assisting the gallery.

Plenty of pretty hats and sophisticated fascinators were in evidence at the Ariane Dart annual garden tea party fundraiser for the Cayman Islands National Gallery’s Education Department Friday afternoon.

Held at the garden of Ms. Dart’s Coral Beach Cottage home on West Bay Road, the event, which featured afternoon tea and a live auction, is one of the gallery’s main yearly fundraisers.
