I love discovering new destinations, particularly when it's a small southern town. I learned about Artfields located in Lake City South Carolina last year from Ed and Barbara Streeter, who own a glass studio in a renovated 100-year old building in Conway's historic Mayfair neighborhood. So....I went to the event and Wow! Ed and Barbara did not steer me wrong. This is a very impressive town wide Arts event! Lake City was once known as the "Bean Capital of the World". Beans, lush strawberries and tobacco flourished . When the market declined, as it did in thousands of small farming towns across the South — the town shifted. Fields went fallow; many moved on; businesses closed; neighbors who remained, hunkered down.
Until a native daughter enlisted the help of a passionate group of locals. Together they went door-to-door and store-to-store with a mission: to reignite Lake City's energy and economy — and to forever change the lives of Southern artists — through art. Artfields was born and today it is Art and Southern Artists that flourish in Lake City.
