in the GUILD GALLERY:
May: Emma Dingler and Carrie Creech will team up for our May show. Emma is a vibrant young artist, who excels at painting, metal work and sculpture, she was the winner of the "People's Choice Award" in the 2020 AGS Juried Show. Carrie Creech is a ceramicist who incorporates free form, natural shapes into utilitarian pieces you can enjoy every day.
June: Julia Burnette and Susan Myers will share gallery in June. Each of these artists are accomplished photographers, capturing the natural beauty of the world around us. Be prepared to be wowed by their closeups of flowers, dragonflies and beautiful birds!
July: Find work from Jeremy Kemp and Lee Wilkie in the gallery this July. Jeremy is one of Spartanburg's hardest working and well-known artists. You can see his work on signs and murals throughout town. Lee's past work includes murals, fiber art and illustrations. We cannot wait to see what this dynamic duo comes up with for this show!
August: Christina Ramsey and Fred Mead will share the stage this August. Christina's brightly vivid, contemporary acrylic paintings perfectly compliment Fred's brightly colored glass sculptures. Both of these artists are regulars in AGS shows and always receive rave reviews for their unique work.
September: Sherril King will grace our walls with her stunning landscapes in September. Working in pastels, charcoal and oils, Sherrill's love of nature shines through on her canvases.
October: Josh Kelley and Kate Frost will present their thought provoking pieces in Oct. of this year. Josh's surrealistic pieces hold multitudes of details hidden in strange and wonderful landscapes. Kate's is working toward her BFA at Converse college and uses her artwork to inspire activism and political change.
November: Aimee Wise and Michelle Radford will bring together their amazing work to the gallery this November. Both artists have a focus on paper and textile arts; and both think outside of the box. They are sure to put on a show that's creative, inspiring and unlike anything we've seen before!

Thank you to all of our artists and patrons who have supported us this year! Especially the artists who so kindly donated their talents and time to make our 50 for $50 show the success that it was- we appreciate each of you!
