On select weekends this summer, notable artists are invited to Ocean House to share their artistic vision and give a demonstration of their skills.
Enjoy a glass of wine and reception at Ocean House on Friday evening from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. to meet the artist. Earlier that day, catch John Tedeschi in action as the sea air, sweeping views of the Atlantic and more than 150 years of history serve as inspiration for a work of art.
