Chapman Cultural Center in Spartanburg, SC, will have seven exhibits open for the public’s viewing pleasure on Thursday, Nov. 21, 2013, during Spartanburg’s monthly ArtWalk, which is a free event focused on art.
Artists’ Guild of Spartanburg will host a reception by Sue Zoole, who is currently exhibiting “Kitchen Chronicles: Paintings of the Foods We Love,” a collection of paintings that depict comfort foods often associated with the southern palette.

Spartanburg Art Museum has three exhibits: “From ’Bourg To ’Burg,” a large and diverse collection of art by artists from Fribourg, Switzerland; “Vases, Vessels, Cutlery and Cloth,” selected still-life paintings of common but beautiful household items on loan from The (George Dean and SuSu) Johnson Collection; and the annual “SAM Art School Student-Faculty Art Exhibition” that showcases the work of both teachers and students.
Work by Olivier Zappelli of “From ’Bourg To ’Burg”.
In the Student Galleries, there is an extensive collection of work by students from Spartanburg School Districts 3 and 6.
Spartanburg Regional History Museum will have two exhibits: It will be opening night for its “A Spartanburg Christmas” exhibit that will include historical photographs of Spartanburg during the holidays and some of the James Buchanan Night Before Christmas dioramas that used to sit in Price’s storefront windows during the winter season; it will also continue to present its “Treasures from the Vault” exhibit that shines an historic spotlight on household items—furniture, dishes, art, etc.—found in the homes of Spartanburg in years gone by.
Carolina Foothills Artisan Center of Chesnee will have its satellite gallery in Chapman’s Green Room open, and Fred Mead, a glass artist from Danieltown, NC, will be on hand to give insights into his unique craft. The featured “Taste of Art” at this exhibit will be jambalaya.
In addition, several authors published in the essay collection “Hub City Christmas,” recently released by Hub City Press, will be on hand to sell books and sign copies.
ArtWalk is a citywide monthly event, where many local galleries and museums stay open late – 5-9pm – on the month’s third Thursday to give art lovers the opportunity to see what is new. All of the exhibits at Chapman are free and most include a wine-and-cheese type reception.
