and on porches too! and on porches too!

Edenton, NC – Edenton, NC – The month of April brings with it lovely spring weather and some of the most beautiful blooms throughout the town and county for all to enjoy. The Pilgrimage of Historic Homes has taken place on odd years since 1946 and with it being such a wonderful event, it finally occurred to the Cupola House Association to showcase their beloved gardens on the even numbered years with the first Easels in the Gardens event taking place in April of 2012.
Artists, Music and Gardens in the spring are the ingredients for making this weekend one not to be missed
on April 25 – 26, 2014 from 1 – 5 pm. The combination of beautiful gardens, a wide array of wonderful
artists demonstrating their beloved Plein Air work and strolling musicians creates an ambience beyond
compare. There will also be 3 – 4 workshops each afternoon related to gardening whether planting,
pruning or clipping to floral design and outdoor entertaining. As you walk the walk from garden to
garden, make sure to see what is taking place on the porches as an added delight.
This year’s event brings over 28 in all and several out of the area artists in addition to our many locals from
Edenton, Elizabeth City, Roanoke Rapids, Colerain, Aulander, Windsor and Pebbie Mott from Murphy,
NC. Joining us from Hampton Roads, VA will be Kathy Bockelman - Chesapeake, Mary Christie -
Suffolk, and Elizabeth McGinn – Norfolk. Adding a few more NC well-knowns will be Sue Morris and
Barbara Gernat from the Outer Banks along with Ann Neely and Shade Maret from Raleigh.
Don’t miss the Family-Friendly Street Dance on South Broad on Friday, April 25th from 7 – 10 pm.
Come Boogie to The Embers, widely considered a musical MARVEL, this band is responsible for laying
the groundwork for Beach Music in the Carolinas, Virginia, the gulf coast region of North America and
every beach in between.

A special Saturday evening gathering in the Cupola House Gardens from 5 – 7 pm with complimentary
unique foods and decorations, music by Wayne James and select beverages will be a great way to view and
purchase the art that has been created over the weekend. So whether you are heading off to a dinner or a
wedding party, plan on spending from 5 – 7 pm to look at the beautiful art – a wonderful way to end a
perfect spring weekend in Edenton.
