Sparkling Tea | Saturday, April 9, 2022 | 1-3 p.m.

As part of our annual Art in the Garden event we host a ticketed Sparkling Tea.  A shade structure created of colorful umbrellas set the tone for this afternoon tea, to be held on our back, garden patio.  Live music and a menu of scones, finger sandwiches and petite pastries will be complemented by a short program with guest speakers featuring Kathryn Petty, president of White Lion Tea, and of course, tea and a “sparking accompaniment!”  An award is also presented during the tea for the most artistic garden hat!

Funds raised from the Sparkling Tea will be used to help support the Shemer Art Center’s Summer Camps, held for four weeks in June, to help underwrite the cost of scholarships, instructors and supplies.

Admission:  Sold Out!
