Exhibitors in Class 10, By the Sea draw inspiration from one of the paintings in the Museum’s permanent collection that features a seaside—be it a beach, boardwalk, or pier. The designers in this class create arrangements that provide a floral voice for Raoul Dufy’s The Three Umbrellas, Othon Friesz’s Regatta at Antwerp, Henri Manguin’s Port of Saint-Tropez, or Albert Marquet’s The Boardwalk as Sainte-Adresse. And each entry is limited to 15 inches in design extending from the enter of the pedestal and is viewed from three sides.
In this delicious class, exhibitors create a functional table design for two people, depicting a dining experience at an exotic destination—a Port of Call. Each scene is staged with dishes, glassware, linens, and floral designs on a white cloth draping a 30-inch diameter table. Each tablescape should be viewed from all sides.
