For the size of our town, we are very fortunate to have many incredible art works featured here. It's also conveniently located next to the Children's Museum, Upcountry Museum, and library.

Thanks so much for taking time to leave a review. Several new exhibitions, including American Impressionism, Jasper Johns, Sidney Dickinson, Expressionism, and, of course, Andrew Wyeth, will open November 8. I hope you are able to visit again soon!

Thanks so much for taking time to leave a review. The Grainger McKoy exhibition is amazing! It will be on view through December 31, 2017, so plenty of time to visit again!

Focusing on artists with some tie to South Carolina, this museum has a surprisingly good collection with depth. From Jasper Johns to an abundance of Wyeth, it has much to share. Docents are often available and a calendar of exhibits is worth checking before you...More

I'm so glad you enjoyed your visit to see Wyeth Dynasty. In November, we'll open a smaller Wyeth exhibition featuring some recent gifts and a few paintings on loan from the Wyeth family. I hope you're able to visit again!
