"ArtSplash's highly-organized staff and oodles of friendly volunteers have earned the reputation of setting the right conditions for a successful show year-after-year. I appreciate the smooth load-in and set-up on Friday in the beautiful park setting, followed by the bountiful catered dinner for the artists, and the discounted lodging rates at a nearby hotel which help keep my costs down. On top of everything, I love the appreciative customers who attend this show!"
