Hello,
I wish you have great day. I will be moving to simpsonville at the end of this year. And want to start making new artsy friends in greenville, sc area. I don't mind driving 3 hours if that is where the art scene exist. I am from san francisco, and get used to the horrible traffic here. so want to ask you where the local artists usually hang out, where is the best art craft supply stores, and where the cool artist meetup are.

I am chinese, has a tattoo. I don't think there is a bible belt problem for me since I am christian.

What is the art scene like in SC? and would be wonderful if you can suggest some artistic thing to do as well.

I heard and been to the artisphere festival.

thanks in advance and look forward to hear from you soon.

The main hangout for artsy types in the Greenville area is the Village of West Greenville . It is reinventing itself as it goes.

Another smaller hangout community is the Taylors Mill

Asheville is also known as a place for artist types to hang out.

Depending on the type of art, many artists support themselves with other work. The art market here will be smaller than a large city.

OP, I bet if you check meetup.com for this area, you might find a group or two whose focus is the arts. Worth a look! Good luck

(reiterating what bikeoid stated above) Check out the Pendleton Street Arts District - another "up and coming" area of Greenville

Here is great (recent) article re the Village of West Greenville/Pendleton Street Arts District from Town Magazine

Another website resource: Greeville's Metropolitan Arts Council
