Thursday February 20, my work will be featured at the West Main Artists Co-op in Spartanburg, SC, along with the work of Janet Kozachek, Janet Orselli and Nat Wallace. The hours of the event are 5-8.
The co-op used to be a Baptist Church, West Main Baptist, and that history was adapted in the naming of the new co-op. It is a very successful enterprise, filled with studios and other work spaces for artists. It has kitchens and an office manned by the group.
The sanctuary of the former church has become the main gallery (there is also a smaller “new members” gallery). You can see parts of two of the stained glass windows to the right of this image which have been saved by the artists and are an elegant addition.
Where the altar used to be are a group of small tables and refreshments for the opening. The placement of the walls can vary depending upon the needs of the work being displayed.
This casual photo shows four of my pieces, none in fine detail. Notice the bartender in the altar area plying his trade.
Along the wall are a series of small paintings of chairs by Janet Kozachek. To the right are some of Janet Orselli’s small chair constructions and a better shot of one of the stained glass windows.
Come see us! West Main Artists, 578 West Main St., Spartanburg, SC 29301.
Thanks to West Main Artists for the loan of the first three pictures.
