The Artists’ Guild of Spartanburg in Spartanburg, SC, has been awarded $5,998 by the South Carolina Arts Commission for the 2015 fiscal year. This support will allow the organization to partake in more community outreach and positively affect those who are not typically involved in the arts. More specifically, the money will be used to help the Guild host an annual juried show for local schools and have an artist-in-residence who will teach in various schools in Spartanburg.

With the help of The Arts Partnership of Greater Spartanburg and Carolina Alliance Bank, the Guild meets its obligation of matching the Arts Commission grant with local dollars. Local residents can see how the Arts Commission grant and local funds benefit the community by visiting the Guild’s Gallery at the opening receptions that take place monthly, as well as ArtWalk, Guild socials, and demonstration nights. The Guild Gallery is located in Chapman Cultural Center at 200 East Saint John St., Spartanburg, SC. It is open daily.
