This place is truly a gem with changing exhibits of interesting artists. Recently, they had an artist who had come from Africa and not only exhibited his works but ancient artifacts - masks, head rests, seating, etc. For those of us who have traveled to Africa and miss it, the chance to experience some of these things was super positive.

The Sumter County Gallery of Art is the place to go in Sumter for a cultural experience. The shows change every few months. The last show had an original Norman Rockwell on display.

Attended a pottery class here once and loved it. I can't wait to be able to take another one. They put on a lot of great events, so be sure to check out their website!
