GREENVILLE, S.C. -

One of the top fine arts shows in the country is headed to the Upstate.

The ninth annual Artisphere festival will return to Greenville next month. The family friendly event showcases the area's cultural community. It will include Brian Olsen's Art in Action, the Kidsphere craft making area, and the Culinary Arts Café.

The 2013 festival will also have three stages for dance, theatre and music. There will also be a new DEMO/"Do It Yourself" stage. There will be live demonstrations of everything from ceramic making, painting and weaving that allow you to get in on the creative process.

Some other attractions at this year's event include:

  • Artist Row - 120 of the highest caliber visual artists representing 17 different mediums.
  • Artist Demonstration Row - live printmaking and woodworking in addition to glassblowing and metalworking demos.
  • Greenville County High School Juried Art Exhibit - an exhibit showcasing work from Greenville County High School's aspiring young artists.
  • Online Silent Auction and Onsite Gallery - the Silent Auction Gallery features work created by this year's Artist Row exhibitors and is open for bidding both onsite and online.
  • Private Label Commemorative Artisphere Wine - Samples available at the wine tasting tent along with bottles of Artisphere Cabernet and Chardonnay at the festival store.

"Artisphere is never the same festival twice," said Artisphere Board of Directors President, Judith Aughtry. "But it consistently provides the rare opportunity to meet top notch visual and performing artists in a unique atmosphere and it always promises to be a special experience."

 

The ninth annual Artisphere festival is scheduled for May 10th - May 12th. Festival hours are as follows:

  • May 10th - Noon to 8 p.m.
