Blooming Art 2016: Information Page
ABOUT BLOOMING ART: Blooming Art is modeled after the Museum of Fine Art’s Art in Bloom show, an annual celebration of floral arrangements inspired by the Museum’s masterpieces.
For four days in late June, the Old Mill in West Tisbury was transformed into a gallery filled with the art of forty-two Vineyard artists displayed with interpretive floral arrangements created by Garden Club members.
All artworks were for sale and proceeds benefitted the Garden Club's Scholarship Fund and the Old Mill Preservation Fund.
LOCATION: The Old Mill in West Tisbury, at 690 Edgartown-West Tisbury Road, across from the Mill Pond.
OPENING NIGHT: Thursday, June 23rd, 5pm to 8pm. Hors d'oeuvres & libations. Tickets required.
TICKETS FOR OPENING NIGHT: $50.
FRIDAY, SATURDAY & SUNDAY: THE PUBLIC EXHIBIT: Friday, June 24th, and Saturday, June 25th, 10am to 5pm and Sunday, June 26th, noon to 3pm. Admission: $5 at the door.
