Artisphere 2010 is here!

Artisphere 2010 is here! Festivities begin Friday May 7 and run through Sunday May 9. Once again Artisphere will feature all types of cultural entertainment including visual art, performing arts, children’s activities, and more. This year Artist Row presents 120 artists from all over the US and beyond, including 14 local Greenville area artists. Art Crossing artists Guy Stevens and Marie Gruber are both proud to be participating as booth artists in Artist Row. Guy and his paintings will be at booth #10 in front of the Peace Center, and Marie and her photography will be at booth #60 in front of High Cotton.

Guy Stevens is excited to be participating in Artist Row once again. "Artisphere is a time that I look forward to meeting old and new friends from everywhere. Lately, I have been working overtime to produce new paintings in preparation for it. I am now totally buried in my newest oil painting, I am three weeks into it. The viewers have had great words of encouragement for it. Some of them, such as Suyin from Rhode Island, have made deep connections with this new piece and many others. To Suyin, my newest painting is all about dreams." Guy’s paintings “Three Little Somethings” and “The Fawn in the Apple Orchard”, shown below, are among his latest and will be featured in his booth #10.

Marie Gruber is also busy getting ready for Artisphere. She will be showing her photography on aluminum with custom aluminum and wood frames, as well as a selection of matted photographs. “This will be my sixth year participating in Artisphere and I am so happy to be included again. I do many street art shows around the country each year, and Artisphere is one of the very best. The artwork is inspiring, and the staff and volunteers are fantastic.” Below is one of her aluminum pieces, "Boneyard Lone Tree", which will be featured in her booth #60.

Artist Row will be open from 4 pm to 8:30 pm on Friday, from 10 am to 8:30 pm on Saturday, and from 11 am to 6 pm on Sunday. All 120 participating artists and their work, and well as information on performing art events, can be seen on Artisphere's website at
