ARTalk Series in Greenville

The Greenville Center for Creative Arts will offer a series of 6 “ARTalk” programs from May 2024 – March 2025. The talks will correspond to the six featured exhibits that will be on display in their Main Gallery during that period. The first event will take place on Tuesday, May 14, at 6:00 p.m. featuring Denny Webster & Sara Quattlebaum. SC Humanities supported this programming with a Mini Grant.

The Greenville Center for Creative Arts will host 6 exhibits over the next year. The proposed exhibits are: Carolina Mountains to Shore with the Upcountry Fiber Artists in April – May 2024; Silent Surfaces: Mapping Spatial and Personal Discoveries featuring the art of Donnie Copeland in June – July 2024; 2024 Annual Showcase featuring their three artist fellows in August – September 2024; Impermanence & Abject Space  featuring the art of Brittany Watkins in October – November 2024; Gravel, Voices, Creosote Tears featuring the art of Arden Cone in December 2024 – January 2025; and an unnamed exhibit featuring the art of Malik Greene in February – March 2025.

Each ARTalk will feature one or more artists discussing and demonstrating their work, including process, techniques, inspiration, and themes. The talks are free and open to the public.

The May 2024 ARTalk will feature artists from the Carolina Mountains to Shore exhibit. Carolina Mountains to Shore features the work of the Upcountry Fiber Artists which consists of six Carolina artists including Evelyn Beck, Lynne Harrill, Sara Quattlebaum, Cynthia Steward, Denny Webster, and Kathryn Weston. They work with textiles to create artworks that range from pictorial to abstract, small to large, and colorful to subdued. Their adventurous use of fabric, surface design, and quilting create exciting and innovative works that share their unique and individual Carolina experience. This free exhibition will be on display from April 5th – May 29th, 2024. Admission is free and open to the public. Carolina Mountains to Shore is sponsored by TOWN Magazine.
