“It is rewarding and encouraging that our organization has attracted such a diverse and talented slate of new directors to help us expand our mission and achieve our goals,” says Kim Fabian, GCCA’s Executive Director. “While 2020 had its challenges, it also allowed us to pause and reflect on GCCA’s imprint and potential in the Greenville community. Our 2021 board will be poised to create a new strategic plan that will help to ensure long-term sustainability and foster meaningful economic and outreach impact through the education, advancement, and promotion of the visual arts.”
GCCA also named four former directors as members of its Founder’s Circle: artists Randy Armstrong and Carrie Burns Brown, and business leaders Bryant Brown of GMKA and J. Earle Furman Jr. of NAI Earle Furman. This distinction recognizes these GCCA leaders and founders for their vision and commitment to the organization.
Founded by a dedicated group of local artists and philanthropists, Greenville Center for Creative Arts opened in May 2015 as a community hub for the visual arts. A 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, its mission is to enrich the cultural fabric of the community through visual arts promotion, education, and inspiration. GCCA provides arts education to more than 900 people each year, as well as showcases local artists, and nurtures appreciation and enjoyment in the arts. It houses artists’ studios, an emerging artists’ fellowship, exhibitions, free community programs, and classes for all ages.
