There’s something for everyone to love at Artisanville! This unique village of artists will provide a fun and engaging experience that will entrance you, your friends and family, without breaking your budget. We are thrilled to showcase a group of artisans from several of our local communities as well as many other states. Each artist has been handpicked and personally invited because of their particular talent and their distinctive flair for exceptional craftsmanship and originality.
Lovers of outstanding fine art and crafts will find more than 180 top artisans displaying and selling their special creations in glass, leather, pottery, sculpture, jewelry, and fiber. Spectacular fashion, home décor, furniture and even objects for the garden will be available. Beautiful painted works made with oils, acrylics, watercolors and tempera; brilliant photography, digital art and exceptional items created in mixed media will also be among only some of the things you will encounter here.
Don’t forget the gorgeous handmade treasures transformed from recycled or repurposed materials as well as heirloom quality kitchen tools, tableware, writing implements, toys and games. Nothing is imported or mass produced, but created individually by hand and with special care by each one of our artists. “Quality” not “quantity” is the word that best describes this shopping experience.
These talented individuals will be available to you in order to answer your questions as well as explain their techniques and inspiration. Each one has a different story, flavor and flair for how they create, what they create and why “art is their passion.” Take a moment and get to know the stories behind these fabulous people and what they make!
There will be live music during different parts of the day, artist demonstrations to watch and learn from; as well as free drawings for Art and Craft items and “Artisanville Bucks” to spend only at the show. You also won’t have to worry about carrying around your purchases as there will be a check in station to leave them in while you shop.
The show will also feature a New Art Patron Lounge Area where you can take a break, sit back, get a drink or snack and log into the internet. It’s perfect if you are shopping with others and finish early and wish to just relax, or if you just need to take a quick break with your children to eat a snack. Be sure you stop by as there will be art available for sale in this area too.
Starting or adding to an exclusive collection, getting a head start on your Christmas shopping for those who love the unique, or even just treating yourself to that one extraordinary thing that really “speaks to your heart”. These are all great reasons to come and visit Artisanville in Greenville, South Carolina! We hope to see you there!
