The West Main Artists Cooperative is a non-profit organization that provides affordable workspace for local artists, and offers a place where artists can learn from a group of like-minded individuals. Discovery by the art world is important to any artist. We grant exhibition space for our artists, allowing exposure to the local community. This exposure will lead to the growth of the art community in Spartanburg and help revitalize the city. Having a place where people can create art and be a part of the community is the ultimate goal.
Teresa Prater and Garry Turpin were interviewed on Studio 62 this AM to talk about the upcoming FREE Gala celebrating 5 years of inspiring art from local artists at the West Main Artists Co-op. Click to learn more...

Our artists participate in Spartanburg's Art Walk event, held every third Thursday of each month. Art Walk provides an opportunity for the community to explore the artistry and craftsmanship of local artists, right here in Spartanburg. Join us each third Thursday from 3:00PM - 9:00PM.
Co-op artists submit their work for consideration to be showcased in one of our in-house exhibition galleries, which are open to the public Thursday through Saturday. This provides an opportunity for artists to publicly showcase complete collections of their work.
