Galleria Pierra

Events

It was an event to remember.

The Galleria Pierra Design Master’s event on May 25th, 2006 was a huge success. We had a variety of guests from notable North Texas architects, designers, builders and artists to local celebrities.

The event was celebrating the article run in Architectural Digest's Design Master's section in thier June 2006 issue featuring Stone Legends Owner Richard Carey. Click here to see the Article.

All of our guests were greeted by complimentary valet parking, friendly staff and a red carpet walk to the showroom where they experienced a unique gathering of artisans plying their crafts.

The ambient music, stimulating conversation and light hors d’oeuvres created the perfect backdrop for the evening. However, the live oil painting, sculpting from a variety of disciplines, a stone fireplace installation and a CAD demonstration of architectural renderings all combined to make the evening truly memorable. We invite you to view the activities on our website at www.GalleriaPierra.com!
