Re: “Columbia‚Äôs art community gives Charleston a run for its money

Mr. Day, this is a well-written article that helps shine light onto the growing arts scene in Columbia. Thank you for taking time to share this experience with your readers.

Have you ever explored the arts scene in the Greenville area? Most of your readers would likely be blown away by the size of the arts community and amount of variety in that region of the state. For example, I see Columbia Open Studios currently features 50 participating artists, whereas Greenville Open Studios features well over 100 artists each year. The annual Artisphere festival has become one of the most successful events for art sales in the entire Southeast. The Indie Craft Parade has rapidly emerged as a perennial powerhouse of artisan creativity. The Upstate region boasts several intriguing art galleries and museums containing globally prominent collections that range from 2000 B.C. to the present. Greenville is also home to numerous professional theatres and performing arts venues regularly featuring a variety of world-class artists. The Greenville Symphony Orchestra is directed by one of the finest classical conductors in the nation, world-renowned Maestro Edvard Tchivzhel, who defected with his family from their native Russia in the early '90s while on tour with the U.S.S.R. State Symphony. The Greenville International Film Festival is just around the corner and will feature 50 films from all continents and countries around the planet. I could continue to write about the arts community in much greater detail, but space here is limited and I do not wish to detract from the ongoing theme.
