Greenville Center for Creative Arts, located at 25 Draper Street Greenville, SC, is calling for artists to participate in the themed art exhibition “Unseen Greenville”.

Early in the month of June the “Greenville News” and sponsor PNC Bank invited the residents of Greenville County to begin a conversation about the parts of the city that are often unnoticed by many of us as we go about our busy lives. The idea was to move forward “as one community in which everyone shares in the spectacular success that surrounds us in Greenville County”. How can Greenville address the needs of and make opportunities available to all people who live here?

Greenville Center for Creative Arts is a community art center whose mission is to be a place for all citizens  to learn about, participate in and enjoy the visual arts.  It is fitting that GCCA find ways for the arts to play a role in this dialog.

Artists selected will exhibit their artworks from Dec. 4, 2015, through Jan. 29, 2016, with a opening reception on Friday, Dec. 4, 2015, from 6-9pm. Juror and awards to be announced.

A closing reception and discussion will be held on Jan. 22, 2016, from 5:30-7:30pm.
