Featured Artists Gallery

The Featured Artist Gallery (also known as the Fuller Galleries) in the Fran Hanson Discovery Center showcases a rotating collection of artwork by artisans inspired by the materials, nature and beauty of the Upstate. Up to six artists at a time, all connected to the Upstate area, showcase their work together.  At least one new artist rotates into the collection each month, so there's always something new to see.  Artwork ranging from paintings to ceramics, baskets to photography, are available for sale, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the South Carolina Botanical Garden.

The Gallery encompasses two bedrooms and a hallway of the former Southern Living Wren House. Paintings are hung among windows overlooking the manicured lawns and sweeping meadows of the Botanical Garden, or around the oversized tiled fireplace.

The Gallery is open Monday through Saturday, 10am to 5pm and Sunday 1-5 (closed University holidays and home football Saturdays). Admission is free. 

To be considered as a featured artist, send your name, photos of your work, artist's statement and bio to scbg@clemson.edu. Preference will be given to artists living in or from Upstate South Carolina, and to work inspired by nature.
