The Artist’s Table Opening Soiree

Friday, September 29, 2023

The Artist’s Table art show is kicking off its 5th year with an Opening Soiree dinner party with the artists. Ticket buyers and sponsors will be among the first to see the art and enjoy delicious wines and a gourmet 3-course dinner.

Each artist will host a table of eight guests who will each receive a piece of art created by that artist especially for the table!

Art in The Artist’s Table art show will be available for sale, with 50% of the sale price benefiting the Museum. Further opportunities to support the Museum include a raffle and scholarship appeal. Proceeds from The Artist’s Table support the Museum’s vision to connect people to nature for the betterment of both.

Tickets available to sponsors and a limited number of individual tickets will be available for $325 each.
