4/29/10: Emerson Hospital Auxiliary Reflections in Bloom art and flower show set for May 22
On Saturday, May 22, 2010, the Emerson Hospital Auxiliary will host its “Reflections in Bloom” event. The event will be held from 6:30-8:30 pm at the Powers Gallery, a restored antique residence and carriage house located at 144 Great Road in Acton.
Spring will be in full bloom with fresh floral creations by local designers inspired by the gallery’s latest fine art collection. The evening includes catered hors d’oeuvres, a raw bar by Twin Seafood, wine, a silent auction, and music by Trio Cordefiato (Sean Winkler, guitar; Laura Finkelstein, flute; Jeff Leiserson, clarinet). Also featured is a unique opportunity to watch Maris Platias and Harley Bartlett create original works of art during the party. Raffle tickets for the paintings will be sold throughout the evening. Christal Bjork, honorary chair of the event, will be one of the featured artists.
Tickets are $50 per person (patron level is $80 per person) and can be purchased by contacting co-chairs Anna Travias at 978-369-5057 (email@example.com) or Karen McCarthy at 978-371-2133 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
