Splash into the Arts!

Posted on 08/03/2017 by Liza Franco

During fall not only do our leaves explode with color, but also our downtown and Main St. will be filled with colors of beautiful artwork. From Oct. 30 until Nov. 4 artists from near and far will share their talents during Splash, a creative event hosted by Arts of the Albemarle. Something extraordinary happens when artists gather in E-city it really gets creative! Not only do you have artists who specialize in many different types of media, you also have musicians who join the scene and some may have a paintbrush in their hand one minute and a ukulele the next. Splash truly brings together creatives, aspiring creatives and admirers. It is always a fun atmosphere filled with good energy. You will see studio spaces filled with artists busy painting, sculptors working on their latest creation, and graphic artists perfecting details. No art scene would be complete without music!  Splash has been known to have the local drum circle perform and various musicians just start joining in with whatever instrument they play.  Could be a didgeridoo, flute, banjo, electric guitar or kazoo, you just never know and that is what makes it fun.  All are welcome, bring your instruments, if you don't have one, no worries there are usually plenty of percussion instruments for all.   splash-collage-for-blog-smaller-version Are you an aspiring artist or one who already works with media but wants to learn a new skill?
