How do you host a socially-distanced exhibit opening and a fun night out? Luckily we have wonderful large outdoor patios and open and spacious galleries!
Join us for a casual adult evening of great art, wine & beer, food, and live music. Take in the Bloom & Grow: Brilliant Botanicals exhibit in the Main Gallery and the She: An Expression of Womanhood exhibit in the mezzanine gallery. Enjoy music on the patio by Lissie Deere and a walk through the garden!
Calvert Crabs Food Truck will be here to kick off our new Food Truck Fridays and we’ll have a cash bar. We’re adding a few pop-up shops from our local makers for something extra. And Hester, our staff Naturalist, will be on hand with some interesting things to share about nature! We hope you’ll stop by!
Masks will be required to enter the Arts Building and tour the new exhibit; please come prepared.
Admission is free for members, pay what you can for non-members; suggested – $5/person, Must be 21+ to attend.
