Hampton Gallery Opening

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.

Greenville Center for Creative Arts

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.
