As the COVID-19 pandemic changes day-to-day life, local artists are searching for ways to show and promote their work. Artists Collective Spartanburg realized the demand for online exhibits and made the move to create a site during social distancing. Local artists, who are also members of the collective, feature their work in personal “shops,” and consumers can purchase right from home. The artists work in various media, from jewelry, ceramics, glass, painting, and photography. Their work inspires and offers a much-needed mood lift.
