A French Honour

Brian * Emile * and Gene Sherman
Gene Sherman owns the up-market Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation Gallery in Paddington. Now for the second time she has been honoured by the French government for her contribution to the arts and culture presented at a small cocktail party as our snap above shows.
Pinning on the medal is France's Ambassador to Australia, His Excellency Monsieur Christophe Lecourtier.

And watching were some proud family members - husband Brian and son Emile. Brian Sherman who sold his investment company for $$mega-millions now concentrates on his charity Voiceless started by he and his daughter Ondine which raises awareness of animals suffering in factory farming and the kangaroo industry in Australia.
 Emile Sherman is probably best known as the producer of the 2011 Academy Award winning film The King's Speech. Currently he's working on several TV series : Love Nina and Codes of Conduct, a science fiction film How To Talk to Girls at Parties starring Nicole Kidman and a re-make of the Lynda la Plante Widows starring Viola Davis.
And if you haven't been to the wonderful Sherman Gallery you'll find it at 16-29 Goodhope Street, just off Five Ways in Paddington.

Kim parties in Washington

Susie & Kim Beazley at the Harman Centre
Being Australian Ambassador to the USA would have to be one of the plum jobs along with France and High Commissioner in the UK.
Kim Beazley and his wife Susie have taken to the Washington social circuit easily and are a regular sight on the diplomatic and art's cocktail circuits. Our snaps show Kim & Suzi at the recent Harman Centre Gala which draws all manner of powerful folk along with show biz greats. The Harman centre is home to the Shakespeare Theatre Company.

Tsidii Le Loka, Kim Beazley, Rose Carter, Paul Carter, Helen Mirren and Victoria Jaiani.
