The Artist’s Table Soiree & Show

Opening Soiree – Friday, October 1, 2021
5:30 PM

The soiree kicks off a week-long art show in Fleischmann Auditorium with a night of celebration created by Event Chair Diane Waterhouse and Joy Full Events.

Enjoy a fabulous evening surrounded by art, with delightful regional wines, a signature cocktail, and a delicious gourmet dinner creekside by Seasons Catering.

This is an intentionally intimate gathering with a limited number of tickets. Guests will view beautiful works of art and enjoy mingling with the artists and Museum friends in the stunning Fleischmann Auditorium. Dinner will be al fresco under the Oak Tree.

Sponsors have the opportunity to choose one of our featured artists to join their table of guests and all guests will take home a special piece of art created by the artist at their table.

Proceeds from The Artist’s Table support the Museum’s work to connect people to nature for the betterment of both, particularly the thousands of schoolchildren we serve every year.

In addition to supporting our work by buying tickets, guests can choose to directly fund scholarships, purchase raffle tickets, and buy beautiful artwork from the show.
