The Artful Lobster
Hermitage Artist Retreat
6630 Manasota Key Road
The highly popular Artful Lobster is the Hermitage Artist Retreat's signature fundraising event, and the only one to take place on its 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 the community. See the progress made on the Hermitage landscape restoration project, funded through last year’s Artful Lobster paddle raise. Enjoy 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, relish the company of friends and the luscious lobster feast catered by Michael’s On East. Tickets start at $175/person buy them online at hermitageartistretreat.org. All proceeds go toward the Hermitage mission: inspiring the artists of our time.
