Art in the Park debuts May 11 at Old Towne Creek County Park
4/18/2014 11:30:07 AM

The Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission invites the Lowcountry to Old Towne Creek County Park, and to let its beauty inspire a work of art this May!

Art in the Park will be held on Sunday, May 11 from 2 – 4 p.m. and from Thursday, May 22 from 6 - 8 p.m. Experts at Fear No Easel will help participants create their own masterpiece of art en plein air (“in the open air”) in the laid-back setting of Old Towne Creek County Park. All skill levels are invited to participate and follow step-by-step guidance on a painting.

Art in the Park is open for ages 12 and up. Space is limited and all participants should register in advance. Registration includes all painting supplies and a complimentary glass of wine (for participants ages 21 or older). To view the artwork that will be instructed as part of this event, visit Outside alcohol will not be allowed.

Fees to participate in Art in the Park are $48, or $40 for residents of Charleston County. Register at or call 843-795-4386.

Currently, Old Towne Creek County Park is only open for special event purposes and private rentals, but along with several other property holdings throughout the Lowcountry, it will one day become a county park available for regular use. The park also hosts the popular Wine Down Wednesday series (coming up April 30), also offering the public a peek at this property.

Old Towne Creek County Park, formerly Ashem Farm, was home to Charleston preservationist Emily Ravenel Farrrow and her St. Andrews Riding Academy. Located in West Ashley, the 67-acre estate is dotted with open fields mixed among groves of Live Oaks. The public is invited to come be inspired by the legacy of the Lowcountry’s nature and history with views from the park of South Carolina’s first English settlement at Charles Towne Landing, and winding Old Towne Creek.

Art in the Park is brought to you by Fear No Easel and your Charleston County Parks. For more information, visit or call 843-795-4386.
