Tickets are now on sale for the Hermitage Artist Retreat’s signature fall fundraising event, The Artful Lobster: An Outdoor Celebration. The 13th Annual Artful Lobster raises valuable funds for the Hermitage’s nationally and internationally renowned artist residency program. The event, which takes place outdoors beneath a large, open-air tent on the Hermitage’s environmentally pristine beachfront campus, is scheduled for Saturday, November 13, 11:30 am - 2 pm; entrance at 6660 Manasota Key Road, in Englewood.

Guests will enjoy a luscious lobster feast by Michael’s On East and a performance by a celebrated Hermitage Fellow (to be announced). The 2021 Artful Lobster co-chairs are Sarasota arts champion Charlie Huisking and Hermitage trustee Charlotte Perret. This year’s event will be dedicated to the memory of Susan Brainerd, a great friend and advocate of the Hermitage who passed away in August, shortly after starting her most recent term as a Hermitage trustee. “This year’s Artful Lobster is an opportunity to celebrate and champion the artists who are giving us hope and giving us a reason to return to the theaters, concert halls, and museums that we know and love,” says Hermitage Artistic Director and CEO Andy Sandberg. “Join us in celebrating a year of overcoming obstacles and believing in the power of the arts – and artists – to make a meaningful difference in our lives.”

Sponsorship packages and tables range from $1,000 to $5,000. Single tickets, at $350, are extremely limited due to capacity, and will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Bookings may be made online at HermitageArtistRetreat.org or by calling Hermitage Development Director Amy Wallace at 941-475-2098, Ext. 2.
