In the Heart of
Downtown Spartanburg

TJC_Gallery_exterior.jpgLocated at 154 West Main Street in the heart of Spartanburg's downtown, TJC Gallery features rotating selections from the collection's holdings. These curated exhibitions are open to the public (including children) without charge on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday from 12pm to 4pm as well as the first Saturday of the month from 12pm to 4pm. In addition, we are pleased to participate in the city’s ArtWalk, held on the third Thursday of each month from 5pm to 8pm. Any changes to the gallery's regular schedule are posted on our social media platforms.

Photography (no flash) is encouraged at TJC Gallery—and please consider sharing your pictures on social media, tagging TJC as @thejohnsoncollection and using our signature hashtag: #southernart. As inviting as paintings and sculpture can be, please do not touch artwork in the gallery. The invisible dirt and oils on human hands can damage these objects.

TJC Gallery is wheelchair accessible. For additional information regarding mobility and parking, please contact Holly Watters.


Excellence & Emancipation: African American Artists and the Harmon Foundation

TJC Gallery's current exhibition showcases works created by such legendary artists as Malvin Gray Johnson, William H. Johnson, Loïs Mailou Jones, and Hale Woodruff, among others. In their respective roles as makers, teachers, historians, and activists, the 18 featured artists had profound influences on African American art in the early twentieth century, and their legacies continue to inform today’s creative and cultural conversation.
