      About this trip


      ArtFields started in 2013 with a simple goal: honor the artists of the Southeast with a week’s worth of celebration and competition in the heart of a traditional Southern small town.   Artfields is located in Lake City, SC, one hour west of North Myrtle Beach.  

      More than 400 masterpieces will be displayed in locally-owned venues, from renovated circa 1920s warehouses and Smithsonian-qualified art galleries to upscale restaurants and start-up boutiques, in a celebration of art and community.  What was once one of South Carolina’s most prosperous agricultural communities becomes a living art gallery as the town recognizes, celebrates, and shares the artistic talent of the Southeast.   As you explore the town, you will learn about its history, enjoy a variety of unique shops and have opportunity to cast your vote on your favorite art.   Before leaving Lake City we also make a stop at Moore Farms Botanical Garden.   Nestled among fields of corn and soybeans, this is a dynamic and wildly beautiful blend of plant displays, bounding meadows and vistas of green-grey pines.

      I love to travel so in my partially retired life I decided to adapt my passion for travel along with 25 years of experience in Travel & Tourism to create Trips by Patty. I received a BA in American History from UNC-Chapel Hill. Not knowing what I was going to do with that degree, I started working as a desk clerk at a hotel in Raleigh. I enjoyed the hotel business and the career path began. Hotel operations and sales, Convention Center operations and marketing, destination marketing with a Convention Visitors Bureau and even a stint as a tour guide. What happened to the history degree? Well, many times when I am escorting my trips I share the history of the destinations we visit. It's a great feeling to take your career skills and adapt them to your own small business. I love what I do and hope you'll join me on a trip one day!


      PATTY is just "AMAZING"! She orchestrates the best trips ever! Always great venues, SUPERIOR BUS SERVICE, thinks of the smallest details to meet everyone's comfort, yummy and healthy snacks, SUPERIOR KNOWLEDGE of the event, timely, organized, friendly, yet maintains her composure and professionalism. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

      Once again Patty you did not disappoint. The show was amazing. The restaurant was wonderful; orders were correct and everyone’s food came out together. And of course, Donny did a great job getting us there and back safely.
