The MAC Gallery at 16 Augusta Street in the historic West End district serves as Greenville’s only public art gallery. 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.

Artists Touched by Carl R. Blair
Call to Artists – Deadline February 8, 2016
The Metropolitan Arts Council is organizing Artists Touched by Carl. R. Blair, a juried exhibit of work by artists who at some point have had the artwork they produce or the life they lead as an artist influenced or inspired by Carl R. Blair, longtime artist and arts educator in Greenville.
The exhibit is open to both 2D and 3D artists.
Artists are asked to provide a short statement about that influence and inspiration as part of their exhibit application. The statement, to be no longer than 100 words, will be compiled in an exhibit catalogue as well as potentially incorporated into the design of the exhibit. The required statement will not play a role in the jurying of the participating artists but can be considered a “tribute opportunity.”

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. Since 2010, each of the exhibits has been sponsored by South Carolina Bank & Trust, 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.
The Centre Stage Gallery is located at 501 River Street, Greenville, 29601
Hours: Tuesday – Friday, 2:00 – 6:00pm

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.
