Sundays Unplugged

All of the museums are open, live music and artists on the plaza… Stop by!

At the beginning of the year, Chapman extended its hours to include Sundays 1-5 p.m. to better accommodate patrons’ schedules. Within a few weeks, all museums and galleries were open on Sundays. To add value to the experience, local musicians were brought in to perform free mini-concerts 2-4 p.m. This Sunday, Brandon Skipper will entertain with his adult alternative stylings from 2-4 p.m.

In addition to free music, patrons can enjoy Sunday Art Market, a bazaar of locally handmade artwork. As always, Artists’ Guild Gallery, Spartanburg Art Museum, and Spartanburg Regional History Museum are free, and Spartanburg Science Center is open for a small fee. There are affordable cultural activities and entertainment available for all ages and tastes.

The latest addition to Sundays Unplugged–Sunday Art Market–provides vending opportunities to local artists in order to “encourage a culturally vibrant community.” The market will be open on Sundays year-round. All items for purchase are handmade and come from a wide array of mediums. All sales are received wholly by the artists.

Any local artist interested in participating must pay $10 per twelve-month period and complete the application. Find the form online or ask for one upon arrival. Only individuals or non-profit artist groups are eligible. Ten-foot by 10-foot spaces are allotted on a first-come-first-serve basis, but artists must provide their own tables, chairs, tents, etc. and be able to set up without staff assistance. Items for sale have to be local and original.

1-5 p.m.

Brooks Center for the Performing Arts

This exhibit features a survey of work exploring abstraction from the Clemson Architecture Foundation Collection showcasing a range of approaches to abstraction from figurative to landscape and from objects to architecture.  Works were selected for their use of elements and principles of design as tools to assist in the decoding of meaning and content within the work. As viewers move through the exhibition the level of abstraction intensifies requiring increased visual engagement and reflection to deduce the artists’ intent.  By actively reading the visual clues the viewer stretches their interpretation skills towards layering future recollections when engaging with abstract works of art.  Artists included in the exhibition are noted southern painters: Carl Blair, David Freeman, Robert Hunter, John O’Neil, Walter Hollis Stevens and Edward Yaghjan. Additional artists: Ben Shahn, Antoine Predock, Manley, Bill Seitz and A. Stanick.

Exhibit organized by Brooks Center for the Performing Arts and the Lee Gallery.
