Young entrepreneur introduces The Art Cellar, features work from more than 40 local artists
Greenville, S.C. – The Art Cellar, formerly The Henderson Art Gallery, is now open at 123 B South Main Street in downtown Greenville. The gallery recently underwent a change in ownership, and Greenville artist Lindsay Louise McPhail plans to further the gallery’s role in the local art community.
“Greenville has a thriving, talented and diverse art community – and it is growing rapidly,” notes McPhail, owner of The Art Cellar. “The Art Cellar is a prime space to showcase local artists and give residents and tourist a relaxed, approachable place to purchase and experience art. The gallery showcases the talent and creativity of the Upstate, and through it, I hope to encourage the advancement of the arts in Greenville.”
McPhail is a Greenville native and Clemson University alumna, where she obtained a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree. She also studied art education at The Corcoran College of Art and Design and worked at the National Museum for Women in the Arts. Additionally, McPhail is a ceramic artist and printmaker, with pieces on display at the gallery.
The Art Cellar offers a broad range of unique artwork exhibited salon-style, including watercolor, oil and acrylic paintings, photography, handmade jewelry and metals, and pottery. Notably, all of the artists exhibited in the gallery are local or native to the Upstate.
