Blue Wall Group, Inc. is a non-profit organization providing support and facilities for artists in rural Northern Greenville and Pickens Counties.
We are based at Slater-Marietta Arts Center, which houses the Emerging Artists Gallery, dance studio, music rooms and conference / community meeting room, and where we teach classes and sell the work of artists - all under one roof!
The name the Cherokee gave to the area we live in was Under the Blue Wall. And we like Blue Man Group... so ...

Blue Wall Group welcomes the creation of a new Arts Group in Travelers Rest. Called The Arts Alliance of Travelers Rest, it was initiated by Debbie Wilson, (Artbasgo, The Hungry Drover) April Morris (The Wiggle Room), and Beth Sicignano, the team who brought us Art on the Trail. Its mission is to strengthen and develop connections between artists and the community of Travelers Rest. Blue Wall Group looks forward to working with this new organization in future. Together we will make even more things happen! for more information and news about upcoming arts forums in TR e-mail Beth at firstname.lastname@example.org
