Plein Air Event

Carolina Farms & Homes helped Sponsor and several of us volunteered for this fabulous Stokes Arts Plein Air Event held May 5, 2012. The Stokes County Arts Council raised money for programming and raised quite a few eyebrows at this spectacular country setting!  (Yes, a rain storm did pass through - but folks just cozied up in the Pavilion and under the Auction tent - enjoying the great food and the beverages!)

The Pavilion is located on a peninsula in the 11 acre lake.... Moon Lake.

Chef Adam Andrews from the Old Fourth Street Filling Station in Winston Salem prepared fabulous food!

Cupcakes .... yuum!  The Banana Split flavor was a hit!

Generous local wineries like The Germanton Winery and Autumn Creek Vineyards helped us out with beverages.

 

 

Venue

An interesting fact:  I sold this property to the current owners!  They have become a wonderful asset to our community.

Yes, it's true.... you could be in Paris or Sedona but WHY when Moon Lake is so close?

The Stokes County Arts Council is my favorite charity - and I serve as the current President of the Board. In a Rural County we've found that RURAL ARTS MATTER!
