On Saturday 12/16/2017 Arts in Bloom held a Holiday Gala to celebrate its 10th anniversary. Over 90 people gathered at The Inn at Salem Country Club to celebrate a decade of local artistry, as well as to raise funds for the upcoming Arts In Bloom tour. The guests enjoyed generous Hors d¹Oeuvres, decadent Desserts, hot spiced tea and wine, complimented by music of The Jazztones.
Artists, businesses and Salem County Residents offered items for the silent auction and door prizes. The live auction included two gift certificates for the Bed & Breakfast River Room, donated by The Inn, which were sold for $250 and $300! A grandfather¹s clock, a fake medieval armor and some beautiful art pieces were live auctioned as well by Gregg Perry. Arts In Bloom has grown over the past decade to a group of over 50 artists, who open their studios to the public one weekend in May. The next Arts In Bloom weekend takes place 19-20 May 2018. Artists include painters, glass blowers, sculptors, photographers, weavers and jewelry makers. For more information about Arts in Bloom: http://www.artsinbloomnj.com
