Telfair Museum of Art Benefit



Floral Design Demonstration by Remco Van Vliet


The Telfair Academy Guild presents a demonstration of the art of floral design by Remco Van Vliet of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, on Friday, March 13, at 10:00 am at the Savannah Theater on Chippewa Square in Savannah, GA. Tickets are $40 for the demonstration only, and $75 including an elegant luncheon at the Telfair Academy at noon. A few sponsorships are also still available, which at the $1000 level entitle sponsors to reserved seating at the lecture, transportation, a private lunch with Remco, and inclusion in a Master Class for twenty at the Jepson Center at 2:00 pm. For ticket information, contact Linda McWhorter at 912-236-2840, or Carolyn Neely at 912-234-2469.
As part of The Artful Table: Going Dutch, Remco van Vliet will demonstrate the living art of flower arranging—as he fills the stage with a profusion of aromatic blossoms. Event designer at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Remco van Vliet is a third-generation Dutch floral designer known for his imaginative arrangements and artistic event environments. He personally designs and creates the grand arrangements in the Met's legendary Great Hall, and is an instructor at the Flower School in New York. His demonstration will include table composition, classic centerpieces, traditional Dutch hand-tied bouquets, "orange" and glass sphere arrangements.

Remco will bring a special élan to The Artful Table: Going Dutch. Proceeds from the event fund the Telfair's blockbuster Dutch Utopia: American Artists in the Netherlands, 1880-1913 exhibition, scheduled for September 2009. The display of creative vignette tables, gala preview party, and the floral design demonstration and luncheon, will capture the spirit, color and magic of the works of Dutch Utopia masters of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

The Preview Party, on Thursday, March 12, will feature food and drink by some of Savannah's most notable restaurants and caterers. At the party, guests will view the table vignettes of talented designers, each interpreting a painting from the upcoming Dutch Utopia show, artfully displayed in the Telfair Rotunda and newly renovated Scupture Gallery. Following the floral demonstration on Friday, March 13, guests will enjoy a luncheon while seated among flowers, vignettes, and the Telfair Museum's magnificent collection of paintings and sculpture.
