Description

A private master’s university in Spartanburg, S.C., Converse provides distinctive undergraduate liberal arts education for women and innovative programs for co-ed graduate study. Converse produces passionate, service-oriented global citizens who lead in their professions and communities – artists and educators, lawyers and doctors, entrepreneurs and business executives committed to making a positive impact on our world.

Our goal is to provide exceptional visual arts programs and strong educational and artistic experiences. You will learn at the hands of dedicated practicing artists, award-winning educators, and skilled professionals in their fields. We encourage Converse women to not only learn art and design but to live art and design!

During much of the year, the gallery is filled with the work of a wide variety of professional artists. In addition to exhibiting, our visiting artists present workshops and lectures that are open to the public. In April and May, the gallery displays exhibits by Converse students.
