The bowls will be sold to benefit Total Ministries; an organization that provides basic needs to assist families in Spartanburg County who are facing a financial crisis. http://www.totalministries.org/

An exhibition of new artwork by Robert M. Urban titled “In Coordination with the Landscape” will be on view in the Artists’ Guild Gallery of the Chapman Cultural Center during November. The exhibit will open on Nov. 1 through Nov. 26. Robert Urban is a mixed artist who depicts the landscape in a contemporary approach through his use of a variety of art materials and montage. He is directly inspired by his immediate surroundings as viewed by him via a run, hike, river excursion, or bicycle ride. Much of the new work on view in this exhibit is a result of his enjoyment of long bicycle rides throughout Upstate South Carolina, and these rides inspired the title of the exhibit, “In Coordination with the Landscape.” For more information about the artist, please visit: www.theUrbanArtStudio.com or www.facebook.com/TheRobertUrbanArtStudio.

A shout out to the amazing artists who worked together to create this gorgeous painting at The Coffee Bar in Spartanburg, which is my temporary Avatar for What’s Up Y’all. 

Local design companies are working on a logo for our show right now and eventually we’ll let you vote up your favorite. Stay tuned.

But since our show comes from The Coffee Bar in Spartanburg and this painting is such a signature item for that location, we thought we’d let you see it here on Tumblr and on Twitter and it might entice you to come down to my favorite coffee shop for a real life look.

Thanks for stopping by :)
