Portrait Sessions Give Back To The Flat Rock Playhouse
Oct 22 @ 11:00 am – 3:00 pm
Porch Portraits by Suzanne

 

Porch-Portraits-Cover.jpg

Best of all, Porch Portraits by Suzanne will donate $15 of every session to our great friends at Flat Rock Playhouse. My goal is to raise $15,000 for the Playhouse by the end of the year so any money over and above the price of $65 will go straight to them.

Perhaps most exciting, an extremely generous Playhouse donor has agreed to a MATCHING GIFT CAMPAIGN up to $36,000.18! This incredibly generous donation draws on the magic of Chai, the Jewish belief that multiples of 18 bring good luck. Meaning that every session booked will result in at least $30 for the wonderful folks at Flat Rock Playhouse.

For decades, Flat Rock Playhouse has been opening their collective hearts and sharing their fabulous talents to bring joy and entertainment to western North Carolina. This is an opportunity to show our gratitude at a time when they really need our support.

Together, let’s make magic happen! Help us kick off this campaign by contributing today.

Covid Exhibit 2020 – Artists of Spartanburg

the-art-of-survival-2-0

The artist community is a vital part of Spartanburg and we have all been feeling the pain and anxiety of coping with this disease. Many have been coping with it by making art. In January 2021, we are calling all artists of the community to bring a work they made during this time and exhibit it in our largest gallery – Solomon Gallery. It will run through the months of January and February so that the community will have an opportunity to see this work created by local artists during the pandemic of 2020. We look forward to hosting this historic event.
