Please join SPACE for an Art Walk Reception for Mandy Ferguson with live music by Mary Norris of Salti Ray.
Ferguson has a BS in Marine Science from the University of South Carolina, a BA in Fine Art from Converse College, and an MFA from Clemson University. She currently teaches printmaking at Lander University.
Her work explores her interest in the connection people have with their environment and the tension that occurs when humans encroach on undeveloped areas. This theme is explored through serigraphs, intaglio and relief prints that operate as independent suites united by subject matter.

SPACE’s mission is to promote, protect, and preserve natural resources and open space in the Spartanburg community. We work with artists throughout the year whose work speaks to our mission as a way to further connect with community.
SPACE hosts a multitude of events throughout the year. As an organization focused on land conservation and environmental protection, we’ve launched an initiative to focus on sustainability efforts during our fundraisers and small events. With help from local composting company, Atlas Organics, we’re making composting a priority at our two big fundraisers (Bonnamoo and A Shucking Good Time). Thanks to local artists Frankie Zombie and Maggie MacDonald, you won’t miss the compost cans at these events! Want to help make our events more sustainable? Share a ride and bring your own non-glass tumblers with you. Working together we can make an impact!
The 4th Annual "A Shucking Good Time" presented by Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System raised $30,000 for SPACE to support our mission of land conservation. 3K was raised for the Cottonwood Trail Boardwalk Restoration Project. Thanks to our composting efforts, 838 pounds of waste was diverted from the landfill.
