Artists Going Live, the annual fundraiser for the Artists’ Guild of Spartanburg, was hosted in the Chapman Cultural Center on December 10, 2015. It was a fantastic evening of wine, jazz, live art creation and a silent auction—as well as great company, food and “artinis.” WSPA-TV reporter and producer Jamarcus Gaston served as a lively and entertaining emcee.
The event was a great success, with many people in the art community as well as avid art supports in attendance. Susan Kunkler, co-owner of H+K Gallery, created a painting with local artist Monta Anthony. Their final piece, along with many other local artists’ and celebrities’ paintings, was auctioned off to raise money for the Artists’ Guild of Spartanburg. The event serves as the Guild’s only fundraiser each year.
The funds raised from Artists Going Live will support the vibrant arts community in Spartanburg through educational events, workshops and outreach.
