Ephemeral Story- Help us welcome our newest artist to the UCAC Gallery. Suzanne Wolfe is a resident of Greenville and produces artwork that tells quite a story.
“Between September 1944 and April 1950, a woman received and saved greeting cards from two men; Ernie and Clifton: both professing their love through the cards. These pieces were inspired by this woman’s scrapbook collection of greeting cards found at an antique show. The woman remains unknown as none of the cards included her name. Though I’ll never know who she was, I wanted to give her and her gentleman callers a chance to speak. In truth, I can’t really know the real story of Ernie, Clifton and this woman, but I hope, through my art I can bring a piece of it to life through the ephemera she left behind.”
Basket Weaving with Vicki Shields- Have you always wanted to learn how to create the beautiful baskets that you see? Now is your chance! Instructor Vickie Shields will walk you through the process step by step. Each class participant will weave a Tobacco Basket. An example of the basket can be seen at UCAC.

The workshop is the first of 10 county workshops TATT is holding across the Upstate in 2019 as part of the 10th anniversary year for the organization.
“This is our second county workshop after a very successful event in Laurens,” said Ten at the Top Executive Director Dean Hybl. “The purpose of these workshops is to help a community learn about ideas and resources that can help them address a specific need within their community.
“Supporting entrepreneurs is something that’s important to us as an organization—one of our five working groups focuses on creating a strong entrepreneurial ecosystem,” he continued. “And crafting a cohesive message is crucial for moving forward as a community.”
Janet Hartman, the Executive Director of the Oconee Economic Alliance, will discuss how Oconee County has developed an inclusive economic development and community messaging program through Destination Oconee and the “Think Oconee” campaign.
Erin Ouzts, Chair of the Upstate Entrepreneur Support Providers Network; LeKesa Whitaker, with Community Works and the Northside Development Group’s StartMe program; and Natasha Pitts, Minority Business Development Coordinator with the City of Spartanburg will talk about “Empowering the Entrepreneurial Spirit,” providing an overview of how to build opportunities for entrepreneurs and small business owners within a community.
Kathy Jo Lancaster, executive director of the Union County Development Board, said, “We are thrilled to have Ten at the Top facilitate the Union County Workshop on July 23rd. The agenda includes two hot topics relative to rural development and vibrancy—community messaging and empowering the entrepreneurial spirt. Dean Hybl and his team have lined up lined up two Upstate communities as part of the agenda. Oconee County and the City of Spartanburg will share their story, ideas, and the steps they used to promote their community’s image and encourage entrepreneurial growth.”
Annie Smith, Marketing and Development Director at USC-Union, which is hosting the workshop, said, “There are many positive things happening to help Union grow and USC Union is a major factor with the growth—especially in the downtown area. We are excited to host the TATT workshop and showcase our gorgeous campus!”

Environmental Art & Music Festival to promote natural beauty of Union County
UNION, SC —- It’s a party with a positive impact. Union’s inaugural Environmental Art & Music Festival is coming Sept. 26-28 to celebrate and encourage awareness and conservation of our vast forest land, rivers, rolling pastures, rich red clay and natural resources that make our county a great place to live and work.
The Festival focuses on celebrating and sustaining Union County resources through conservation, preservation and awareness of all-things outdoors. “We’re bringing art, music, food and fun together to call attention to the beauty that surrounds us,” said Coie Switzer, Festival coordinator and director of the Piedmont Physic Garden.
Main Street and surrounding areas will be the venue for a vendor village of artists, craftsmen and others who create products from natural resources, an art competition and reception, food vendors and an outdoor concert. Activities will take place on and around Main Street and retailers will be encouraged to host specials, decorate their windows and promote their businesses.
The Festival is coordinated by local partners including the Piedmont Physic Garden (PPG), USC-Union, Carnegie Library, Union County Tourism Commission, Union County Arts Council and the Union County Chamber of Commerce.
“It’s a collaborative effort of some of Union’s most dedicated partners,” said Coie Switzer, director of PPG. “Everyone’s contributing their time and area of expertise and we’re really excited about the results. The Festival will be the culmination of that and a highlight of the year locally.”
Funding began with the spring gift of $1,500 Union City Council and $1,500 gift from Union County Council to qualify for a $3,000 matching grant from Elevate Upstate.
The grant was part of a vibrancy initiative established by Ten At The Top (TATT) and Hughes Investments of Greenville and was designated to help PPG start an environmental art festival in the historic center of downtown Union.
Union Mayor Harold Thompson said the Festival will be a great way to draw people to downtown Union. “It’s a great effort and Miss Coie Switzer came in and explained to us how many people this would draw to the downtown from all over the region,” he said. “It’s different and it’s a great effort. We’ll see people locally, from throughout the region and even possibly from across the country.”
For information on Festival details, please contact Coie Switzer at 864-427-2556, see our website, , Facebook, or Linda Wilburn Weber, vendor coordinator, at .
