Easels In The Garden Tour

This biennial event, sponsored by the Cupola House, is a unique pairing of special gardens with talented plein air artists, creating beautiful works of art, based on their interpretation of each garden.

The Art in Bloom exhibit brings this combination inside, at the Chowan Arts Council gallery, where floral arrangers each interpret a work of art. The finale of the 2-day event is a festive Garden Party, with displays of the artists’ work available for purchase.

Funds raised at this event are used to help maintain this historic site. Designated a National Historic Landmark, the 1758 Cupola House and its gardens are protected and preserved by volunteers, committed to its rich history.
