Danielle here. One of my favorite places to explore work from Greenville artists is a bit unexpected: Hotel Hartness.
Art Houzze — a woman-owned, art curating business in Greenville — says this is the first hotel it’s styled, working with the Hartness family and the hotel’s designers to select the perfect work for the property.
Some pieces were commissioned, others were curated by the Art Houzze team, and some are even pieces from the Hartness family’s personal collection.
The best part? It’s (almost) all hyperlocal. One regional artist from NC is featured, but the rest of the artists are from the Upstate.
We recommend you grab a cocktail at The Captain (let Jason + Alex know we sent you) and take a stroll around The Manor. As you explore, look for the QR codes that will take you to more information about the pieces and the local artists who created them.
Spartanburg native Aimee Wise created this 3D piece which is located outside the ballroom. It adds dimension to the hallway and makes a beautiful photo backdrop, especially for a Hotel Hartness bride.
“Rocky Creek - Tumbling Shoals”
Greenville artist Susan Reynolds painted these scenes from Jones Gap State Park. Fun fact: She just started painting by enrolling in classes about five years ago.
Josh Bagwell, a Greenville wood artist, created this piece from several types of reclaimed wood from the historic Markley Mill + Old Cotton Mill. Bonus: If you head over to The Captain, you’ll also find Josh’s piece "^SKY COYOTE^ 13,” which was inspired by the Hartness family’s passion for aviation.
