Martha's Vineyard Garden Club Presents: Blooming Art 2021!
Below is a bit about our Blooming Art Event from June, 2021!
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.
The Old Mill in West Tisbury is transformed into a gallery filled with the art of Vineyard artists displayed with interpretive floral arrangements created by Garden Club members.
DATES: FRIDAY, SATURDAY & SUNDAY
Friday, June 18th, and Saturday, June 19th, 10am to 6pm and Sunday, June 20th, 10am to 3pm. Admission: $10 at the door, cash or check only.
All artwork will be for sale and proceeds will benefit 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.
NOTE: The Google map below is deceiving. The Old Mill is located directly across the street from the Mill Pond. The Mill Pond (to the left of the red marker ) is actually larger than it appears on this map.
