Many volunteers have spent several hours to make sure that the SCWS regional gatherings were successful. Please continue to support SCWS in this way. As a reminder, the gatherings are a joint venture among SCWS, our volunteers who serve as guest artists and art guilds around the state. They are a chance for artists and art patrons to meet, network and share expertise. Most are free and open to the public. The gatherings are usually held in Aiken/N. Augusta, Anderson, Charleston, Columbia, Florence, Greenville, Hilton Head, Myrtle Beach, Rock Hill and other locations throughout the state. The gatherings for 2012 will be announced late fall/early winter.
