Several working studios including three young artists on fellowship. A variety of art classes. First Friday events are packed with visitors. Not far from the growing art community on nearby Pendleton Street. This is a good place to meet several local artists in one place.

Once again Greenville has shown the importance of the arts to our culture and healthy economic development. Also, the GCCA will help the Village become a jewel in its own development as a "happening" place to live and visit.
