The gallery is also home for the annual Greenville Open Studios exhibit in November, the One-Stop Open Studios retrospective in April-May and the Flat Out Under Pressure exhibit in June. Since 2010, exhibits at MAC have been sponsored by Regions Bank, and we thank Chris Riley, Regions’ South Carolina Market President and MAC Board Member, for this company’s very generous level of support.

Centre Stage Gallery
In 2005, MAC collaborated with Centre Stage, one of Greenville’s premier theaters, to provide exhibition space for MAC member artists in conjunction with each theatrical production throughout the year. The collaboration has been instrumental in enhancing awareness of the talent and professionalism of Greenville-area visual artists as well as of the outstanding theatrical programming in the region. The exhibits are sponsored by South State Bank, and we greatly appreciate this corporation’s commitment to the visual arts community. The partnership has resulted in displaying the works of over 100 Greenville-area artists. Centre Stage is also the venue for Artisphere’s annual Artists of the Upstate exhibition on display in May during one of Greenville’s premier weekends for visual and performing arts.

TD Gallery at the Greenville Chamber of Commerce
In 2008, when the Greenville Chamber of Commerce renovated its facility on Cleveland Street, MAC partnered with the Chamber to provide display opportunities for MAC member visual artists throughout the first floor. Over 3,000 visitors on a monthly basis come into the Chamber building, and they are given a great chance to become familiar with the work of Greenville-area artists. Since 2008, the TD Gallery at the Chamber has hosted shows by Phillip Gott, Georgia Harrison, Jane Doyle, Blaine Owens and the founding artists of Greenville Open Studios, to name only a few.
Cancer Survivors Park Alliance
presented by TPM
Through July 29. 2016
A chance meeting in May 2015 began an ongoing tale of cancer survivors that is shared with the world each Sunday on the Cancer Survivors Park Alliance social media sites. Photographer Mark Kirby and editor Emily Price join forces to capture and share the images and stories of different journeys of survivorship with the goal of offering a connection for all those touched by cancer. Thousands of viewers have become followers of this series. We hope it will mean something to you as we share this series in a printed exhibit form.
“The amazing local individuals in this series show us how to be gracious in the humble magic of a single gifted moment, to celebrate equally in the smallness and grandeur of life. In their images, perhaps we too can gleam as sunshine for others, for they can show us how to hope and heal, survive and thrive.” – Emily Price, S3 Editor
“I hope that our Sunday Survivors Series can touch people going through the difficulties of cancer and those who have survived it in some way.” – Mark Kirby, S3 Photographer
