A week long celebration for artists



 I participated in this last year and had the time of my life! I met so many wonderful artists and art lovers. It is so wonderful to spend time with so many talented people and learn from each other. I came home refreshed, excited to hit the studio and with a hand full of new friends. So, If you can make out to Elizabeth City for the wonderful event, I highly recommend it!!

SPLASH WEEK! 
a gathering of artists & all creative folks

Pack up the tools of your creativity
 and head to Elizabeth City
for the sixth annual
SPLASH!
A time especially for you to dive into your 
talented spirit
in the creative world of Elizabeth City, NC.

Wednesday, June 4, 2014 
through Sunday, June 8, 2014
Come when you can and stay as long as you can.

You’ll spend your days immersed in your own creative endeavor at your own special spot...
the banks of the Pasquotank,
the bow of a boat,
the meadow of a farmer’s field,
a private garden,
an old shipyard,
a swamp filled with Cypress trees,
a studio in a historic downtown building,
or in our fabulous Arts of the Albemarle.

And...when you’re not indulging in creativity, 
we invite you to
rest on a wide front porch, 
drink a latte,
 share art talks with other like-minded people,
or 
paddle the river in a kayak, 
peddle the back roads on your bike,
  join a drum circle.
