The Artful Lobster

Join us for a Gulf-front lobster feast benefiting the Hermitage Artist Retreat!

11:00am – 2:00pm 

Chaired by Jarred Wilson
Hermitage Artist Retreat Historic Campus
6660 Manasota Key Road, FL
The highly popular Artful Lobster is our signature fundraising event, and the only one to take place on our Manasota Key Gulf-front campus. With luscious lobster, a complete gourmet buffet, live entertainment by Hermitage artists, and an anticipated auction, the Artful Lobster kicks off the season for many in our community.
This year we’ll see the progress made on the Hermitage landscape restoration project, funded through last year’s successful Artful Lobster paddle raise. We’ll witness a collaborative concert by two exciting and very different musicians who will be in residence: composer/pianist Courtney Bryan and vocalist/composer/multi-instrumentalist/dancer Jen Shyu. And of course, we’ll enjoy the company of friends and the luscious lobster feast catered by Michael’s On East.
As always, all proceeds go toward the Hermitage mission: inspiring the artists of our time.
