1) Spartanburg Art Museum has their opening reception for their latest exhibit, Another BodyAnother Body is a group exhibition featuring the work of seven artists who depict, incorporate, or are inspired by the human body. Their artworks explore the complex, finite, and fragile experiences of being human.

2) The Artists' Guild of Spartanburg recently debuted their brand new exhibit featuring Spartanburg local, Jeremy Kemp! Jeremy Kemp has always been drawn to Kustom Kulture. At 20 years of age, Jeremy got the opportunity to work at Pop Shop Airbrushing with Larry Latham. Under Larry's wing, Jeremy honed his airbrushing skills, which he would use for the next 17 years to make his living.

3) You'll enjoy art, cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, and the Spartanburg cultural experience. There's no better time to get out of the house and enjoy a night throughout the beautiful city of Spartanburg, SC. ArtWalk showcases the high-quality artwork similarly found in Charleston, Greenville, or Asheville, already located in your city!
