GREENVILLE STATE FARMERS MARKET
1354 Rutherford Rd.
Greenville, SC 29609
The Greenville State Farmers Market includes retail sheds and farmer stalls that offer a wide variety of locally grown products and specialty goods. Both quality and variety are standards for the volume of products offered for sale at the Greenville State Farmers Market. Market operations continue daily, all year long, ceasing for only two holidays, Thanksgiving and Christmas. At any other time wholesale activities begin during early morning hours and last through mid-afternoon, seven days a week.
The exhibit will be shown in our Focus Gallery. Come hear guest speakers talking about the CCC, textile mills and modern technology in the 21st century.
From the Smithsonian website- “The Way We Worked, adapted from an original exhibition developed by the National Archives, explores how work became such a central element in American culture by tracing the many changes that affected the workforce and work environments over the past 150 years. The exhibition draws from the Archives’ rich collections to tell this compelling story.”

AT THE BILTMORE:
Designed for Drama: Fashion from the Classics
February 10 – July 4, 2017
The artistry of great literary works, costume design, and movie making comes together in Designed for Drama: Fashion from the Classics, a new exhibition premiering in Biltmore House. Inspired by George Vanderbilt’s love of literature, Designed for Drama showcases more than 40 award-winning movie costumes from films based on favorite books in his collection.
Vanderbilt amassed a personal library of more than 22,000 volumes at his North Carolina home alone. He also counted leading authors of the era as personal friends, including Henry James, Paul Leicester Ford, and Edith Wharton—all of whom stayed at Biltmore House as guests. That literary connection is brought home in the exhibition with the costumes accompanied by the original books from Vanderbilt’s library that inspired the films.
The exhibition features elaborate costumes from recent films that bring literary characters to life, including Sherlock Holmes, Finding Neverland, Anna Karenina, and Pride and Prejudice. Costumes from 13 movies are dramatically staged in the magnificent rooms of Biltmore House. The fashions on display reveal the attention to detail involved in period costume design, and represent the work of costume designers at the highest level of their profession.
Entry to this exhibition is included in Biltmore admission. Save $10 per admission ticket when you buy 7 or more days in advance.

Table Rock State Park Presents: Hampton Plantation Mansion Tours
Several prominent families of Colonial and Antebellum South Carolina lived at Hampton Plantation, including Rutledges, Horrys and Pinckneys. Today, the mansion stands as a testament to the wealth and power of these families as well as the craftsmanship of the builders.
Tours include a study of the architecture and evolution of the house, as seen in the open walls and unfurnished rooms, as well as personal insight into the people that called Hampton home.
Is Art Work? is a group exhibition featuring five artists whose work is meticulous, meditative, or laborious: artworks that require hard work. Each of the pieces in this exhibition required dozens, if not hundreds, of hours to produce. The central myth of the artist in our culture is that of the “starving artist”, whose labor is so undervalued that he or she cannot even afford to eat. Yet we all consume what artists produce – art – on a daily basis. The design of our clothing, the shape of our homes, the expressions and idioms we use to communicate, the caskets we will be buried in when we die: all are the work of artists of one kind or another. Why is a group that is at work in every sector of our society so marginalized?
Is Art Work? challenges viewers to consider the production of art as a repetitive, highly focused course of action, and calls attention to the often unseen labor behind every work of art.
