Palate to Palette: Fundraiser at Art League Dazzles the Senses

Mispillion Art League Riverwalk Center

By Lisa Fitzgerald

Milford has taken hold of an idea that larger cities have grasped for some time now—one way to get people out and about is to pair fine food with beautiful art in a picturesque setting. On Saturday, May 6, the Mispillion Art League, located at 5 North Walnut Street, hosted an Opening Reception for the Spring Members Judged Show. Cleverly called “Palate to Palette” because it stimulated both the taste buds and the hidden artist in us all, it brought people downtown on a beautiful spring day to enjoy good food, art and each other’s company.

The event included wine & cheese, samplings of gourmet foods brought in by local area restaurants, and the fine art exhibit, which included all types of art. Participants could also opt to purchase a unique horse drawn carriage ride for a scenic trip throughout town. The League sold tickets for three time slots in order to maximize attendance, and the event was well attended. This is only one of six receptions to be held at the League this year.

The Mispillion Art League is a non-profit organization that was founded and incorporated in 2004 with the mission of bringing visual arts to the local community. It welcomes new members at any time. It offers a variety of classes for children, teens, and adults as well as a free public and community events. Some of its offerings include Third Thursday art presentations, monthly “open studio” critiques, summer art camps, and changing exhibits. There is always something going at their beautifully restored building in the heart of Milford. Visit their website at www.mispillionarts.org for more information.
