The “art” of High Tea: Literally!

The Historical Society of Sarasota County hosts Light Chasers, a plein art artist group, in Pioneer ParkThe Historical Society’s High Tea & Paintings Off Easel in the Crocker Memorial Church on Sunday, Jan. 12th from 2 to 4 in the afternoon is always an artistic affair, and even more so this year!

Plein Air Artists will be painting outside while we sip tea inside. Artwork may be purchased off the walls or “off easel.” This group of artists from Light Chasers, says leader Terry Mason, are dedicated to using their talents to help local non-profits.

Most of the paintings that will be for sale are in an affordable size that makes perfect home decor, hostess gifts, and remembrances of your loved ones’ and visitors’ time in Florida.

The theme for this year’s event is “Tea & Flowers” and guests will each receive flower cards, donated by hostess, for the third year in a row, Judy Alexander. In addition to the art sales, there will be a Silent Auction during the event and music will be provided by Sal Garcia. Be sure to wear your best hat!

Last year’s High Tea was a sell-out so get your reservations now, by calling the Historical Society, at 941-364-9076, Monday through Friday from 10:00 – 2:00. Tickets are $25.00 per person and all monies raised go towards the maintenance of two of Sarasota’s oldest buildings, the Bidwell Wood House (1882) and the Crocker Memorial Church (1901).

We'd love to hear what you have to say!
