First of the Year : ART WALK
Art Walk Spartanburg returns on Thursday, January 15 from 5 to 9 p.m. in a new opportunity to explore the many art resources downtown. Posters and maps are available at the art venues, and visitors should look for trolley signs for assistance in roaming between several exhibits.
In addition to Carolina Gallery, MYST Gallery and Crescent Gallery, there will be additional storefronts open with special art walk exhibitions.
New this month is Gallery 155, on the corner of Broad and Liberty, featuring selections from a local collection.
Carolina Gallery is holding an opening reception from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. for Isabel Forbes, whose work depicts everyday scenes from life, which, she says, "express the love and nostalgic feelings I have for this place I now call home."
Stephen Stinson, art photographer, and Ed Emory of Carolina Gallery are collaboratively producing a collection of photographs on canvas that feature portraits of important local artists. Each Art Walk will have additional photographs on display.
On exhibit in the portico of the David Reid Theater at the Chapman Cultural Center, are 4 sculptures that are part of the Brookgreen Gardens Upstate SculpTour. The lobby of the theater will also be open so visitors can see 4 additional sculptures from the SculpTour. The Art Museum is showing "Paws & Reflect", artwork by leading artists whose focus is canines. Also in the museum, the Artists Guild Gallery exhibits work by Linda Hudgins.
Several local retail merchants are participating by extending their hours into the evening.
