A portion of the proceeds from the sale of all books, art and photography will benefit the FLW Fontana Boathouse.
There will also be a special opportunity to bid on framed art works generously donated by the estate of renowned local artist Faith H. Davis (1915-1967). Ms. Davis won numerous awards and honors for her magnificent watercolors and sculptures, and in 1965 her artwork was chosen to hang in Robert F. Kennedy’s NYC office. She taught youth and adults throughout her career; was involved in set design and creation in theatre productions; and was a frequent guest speaker for television and radio shows as well as local art organizations. This is a rare opportunity to own a very special piece from her estate collection, with proceeds to benefit the Fontana Boathouse.
Admisison to the exhibit is $10 per person and includes a complimentary glass of champagne or sparking juice.
While there you can enjoy Tea on the Veranda with traditional "high tea" offerings such as tea sandwiches, scones and desserts as well as a variety of teas - hot or cold and other assorted beverages. Tea room is open to vistors at the rowing campus during exhibit hours with live music compliments of Pat Ruof..
