It is hard to believe Fall is just around the corner! We want to alert you to an upcoming event you may wish to put on your calendar – the first annual St. Michaels Concours d’Elegance Invitational hosted by the Inn at Perry Cabin on September 30, 2007.
Last year, Marc’s painting of a 1927 Bugatti Type 39A, Dreaming With Eyes Open, caught the eye of car aficionado and friend Judge John North. Some of you may remember it was through the Judge’s good graces in the early days of Marc’s career that he was afforded access to one of his favorite subjects, the Chesapeake Bay log canoes. So when the Judge asked Marc to participate in the first Concours d’Elegance in our region, he agreed without hesitation. Marc’s painting of a 1932 Bentley 8-Litre (from the Petronis collection) will be auctioned off to raise funds for the American Red Cross of the Delmarva Peninsula and will be used as the event poster and program cover.
The event promises to be a splendid affair. Rolls Royce, the Blackhawk Collection, EuroMotorcars (visit www.stmichaelsconcours.com for a complete list) are sponsoring the exposition on the waterside grounds and in the public rooms of the elegant Inn at Perry Cabin. The entire facility has been reserved so attendees may enjoy a fusion of art
