Buy Local Art
This weekend artists in Greenville South Carolina will open their studio doors and allow we non-artists to appreciate and laud their treasured works. Greenville Open Studios is a weekend event where local visual artists open their doors to the public. The event is held annually on the first weekend in November, and showcases artists at work in their studios. Now entering its 12th year, Greenville Open Studios began as an idea cast about during a casual conversation between a small group of artists several years ago; they discussed doing something to raise awareness in the greater community of the tremendous creative energy in the area. The idea has evolved into a full-fledged annual event. Art can inspire in the following ways: speaks to your heart, feeds your soul, teaches you something, makes you laugh, ignites a spark. Get out this weekend and buy a piece of art created by a local that speaks to you! This piece above was painted by Teri Pena, a local artist here in Greenville. I hang it proudly on my living room wall. It measures 4 ft high and 7 ft wide and I LOVE IT!
