 Calling all artists for the second annual The Arts Bloom in Weston fundraiser at Weston’s Emmanuel Church, 285 Lyons Plain Road, Weston. To salute local artists, Emmanuel has developed an evening to exhibit works in varying mediums. The celebration is designed so that artists and select non-profits simultaneously benefit.

            The Arts Bloom will be held on Saturday, May 16 from 6:00 – 9:00 pm and includes both a live and silent auction, as well as wine and refreshments. There will be live music performed by pianist, Justine Macurdy of the Schubert Club, and the dress code is Smart Casual attire. Tickets are $35 per person and can be purchased at http://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-arts-bloom-in-weston-tickets-16353449608. All are invited to take in the local talent and purchase from the array of displayed artwork.
