THIS EVENT IS BEING POSTPONED TO A LATER DATE.

Art in Bloom Gallery is honored to be awarded an historic plaque from the Historic Wilmington Foundation earlier this year.   Join us for the Historic Plaque Ceremony & Reception to be celebrated on Wednesday, March 18 from 5-7 pm.  The program will begin at 5:10pm with remarks by Margaret Haynes, Mayor Protem, City of Wilmington and Terry Espy, President Downtown Business Alliance (DBA), followed by the Historic Plaque Unveiling and remarks by Beth Rutledge, Executive Director and Beverly Tetterton, Historic Wilmington Foundation (HWF).   We will host a reception in the gallery following the unveiling.

The Historic Wilmington Foundation’s plaque program is one of the most prolific in America. Adorning cottages, mansions, alleyways, beach bungalows and more, HWF’s hand-painted plaques honor the heritage of communities across three North Carolina counties. 

Art in Bloom Gallery is receiving a black plaque indicating the structure of the building is 100+ years old. Established in 2015, the Art in Bloom Gallery is in a renovated horse stable built by the Quinlivan family of farriers in 1910 at 210 Princess Street in Wilmington, North Carolina.   The renovated interior still features the original heart-pine ceiling and brick walls and interior wooden walls of the building.
