Artists’ Guild of Spartanburg Features Multicultural Art Show

The Artists’ Guild of Spartanburg in Spartanburg, SC, will present, Our Global Family, featuring works by Guild members celebrating multiculturalism. The show will run Feb. 1 - 17, 2012, in the Guild Gallery at the Chapman Cultural Center. A reception will be held on Feb. 16, from 5-9pm. Foods from a variety of countries and cultures will be served.

“As our world is becoming more and more globalized through technology, our immediate, extended, and global family becomes more prevalent in our daily lives,” Robin Els, Executive Director, said. “The concept of family has grown in recent years to include not only immediate

family members, but also extended members, and as we learn more about our ancestry, our global family ties start to become a part of our daily experiences. This exhibit will feature artwork from our members that celebrate their experience with family, focusing on the historical, ancestral, and cultural aspects of our lineages.”

In addition to Guild members, various cultural groups have been invited to participate in the show. “Art serves to symbolize and visually enhance this connection, allowing the observer to understand more about her/his importance and role in the human family,” Els said.
