Artists Guild Gallery is located in the heart of downtown Greenville, South Carolina and is the oldest co-operative gallery in town having recently celebrated 12 years of operation. We represent up to 18 juried, local award winning artists in 2,000 square feet of space offering a variety of media including: acrylic, graphite, oil, pastel, watercolor, photography and mixed media. In 2019 we launched our own gift shop containing small works from our members as well as creations from more than 15 local consignors. Prints and cards, pottery, small paintings, mosaics, custom jewelry, textiles; and works of glass, metal and wood offer something for everyone. We are a great source for unique Greenville souvenirs!
We participate in First Fridays Gallery Crawl from March-December at which time we host our monthly Guest Artist Receptions from 6-9 pm.
Because we are a co-operative gallery, each artist works in the gallery on a regular basis so that when you visit us, we will be ready to discuss and answer questions about the artwork on display.
We are open Tuesday-Saturday from 10am until 5pm, Sundays 1-5pm.
We are closed on most major holidays.
Please call (864) 239-3882.
