About The Three Creeks Visual Artisans Alliance...

The name "Three Creeks" is taken from the watershed that encompasses most of Marlboro County. Here, three main creeks, Cottingham Creek, Muddy Creek, and Hagins Prong, all flow through this watershed as do tributaries from most of the other creeks in Marlboro County. These creeks are blackwater creeks creating some of the most picturesque scenes in the county. Water and landscapes are two of the most painted subjects by the artists. Since the group has members from all areas of Marlboro County, it was important to find a name that represents the entire county.

The group meets on the third Thursday of each month at 5:00pm in the Marlboro Arts Council's Weatherly-Walker House, located at 303 East Market Street in Bennettsville. Membership is open to anyone- professional or amateur- who is a visual artists residing in Marlboro County.
