In the Heart of
Downtown Spartanburg

GalleryExt_AC_320_copy.jpgWednesdaySaturday from 12 to 4pm. 

Located 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–Saturday from 12 to 4 pm. 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 hashtags: #southernart and #artforyall. 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.

What do bobby pins, paracords, and washers have in common? Inspired by Anni Albers, come to the AC Hotel Spartanburg after school on November 16th to make your own 'experimental' piece of jewelry. Drop by the AC Hotel Breakfast Area any time from 3-5 PM, Thursday November 16, for this free event and take home a piece of nontraditional art. View the Black Mountain College artwork in the hotel and craft like a BMC artist. Parking is accessible behind the hotel, and light refreshments will be available.

Artwalk is a free self-guided tour through Spartanburg's museums and galleries every third Thursday of the month from 5-8 pm. Light refreshments are provided, and other coordinating venues such as the Chapman Cultural Center, Spartanburg Art Museum, and the Artist Collective Spartanburg, have events and gallery openings during this time. 

Programming for Artwalk will change every month according to the highlighted show. 


Tranquil Tuesdays

Every Tuesday morning, TJC Gallery will host 9 am classes led by Adrienne Ables, E-RYT 500. The class will offer a different mixture of Flow and Yin poses to help move into stillness and revitalize your senses. Share a tranquil morning with fellow yogis surrounded by TJC’s rotating exhibitions in our beautiful downtown arts space. All levels are welcome; please bring your own mat and props. Drop-in sessions are 75 minutes with a $10 instructor fee (cash/Venmo). Please reach out to Blake, bbatten@johnsondevelopment.net, with any questions.


Looking for a Saturday afternoon activity? Come into TJC Gallery at 2:00 pm for a family story time. A TJC staff member will read from a selection of art books until 2:30 pm. Parents are to stay with their children, and explore the gallery before and after the program.
Also available is our TJC Coloring Book for all ages. Come in and take a piece of TJC art home with you.
