The other night there was a very important opening at the Hampton Gallery, Taylors, SC featuring Jeanet Dreskin and several people whom she influenced as a studio artist and teacher. Jeanet has supported so many of us in the art world in so many ways and fortunately she is still going, a force of nature in the best possible way. Go see this show at Hampton Gallery From right to left in the first picture is Alice Schlein, Jeanet Dreskin, Carrie Burns Brown, Jim Campbell and Sandy Rupp, gallery director.

Yesterday Alice and I went to downtown Greenville to stroll around the park. The experience reminded me of a stroll in Central Park in NYC.
Here are some unpeopled views inside the old Brandon Mill, now the Greenville Center for Creative Arts. I love the large spaces with sparse furnishings.There are also artist’s studios in the building as well as a connected loft type housing development.
Greenville, SC has some interesting museums and the Upcountry History Museum is getting to the top. The current traveling exhibits include a superb Ansel Adams exhibit which has some of his iconic images beautifully printed.Dr. Seuss (Ted Geisel) has kind of retrospective show which is amazing. Take the time to go see these exhibits. http://www.upcountryhistory.org/changing-exhibits/current-exhibits/
Walking around anywhere is exciting because of the odd visual surprises.
Here are some neat stuff from our Greenville wanderings.
The Reedy River Falls as seen from the Liberty Bridge is a a joy to watch after a major rain as it cascades down the rocks.
