There are four reasons to come here. First is the works of Jasper Johns (a Greenville resident); second is the Andrew Wyeth collection (called, by his widow, the best in a public museum, even though there are no major works here) and the third is the truly spectacular collection of works with a Southern connection (although that has become "politically...

This was my first visit to the GCMA and I was anxious to see the Jamie Wyeth show. They called it : Jamie Wyeth, Our Own Rabelais. I was an art minor in college and Rabelais did not ring a bell with me so I was curious to see why the museum titled the show that way. Well, the question... More

Stopped in to see Jamie Wyeth exhibit. Saw that and a whole lot more. Some really wonderful stuff. I knew from previous reviews that they did not allow photography in the galleries. This is also posted throughout the museum-- so I left my camera in the car. But don't count on being able to buy anything much in the shop... More

I stopped at the museum to see the Johnson Collection exhibit before it left town in a few days. It was an impressive exhibit. A pleasant surprise was the Dickinson's Alabama Suite. A small but impressive jewel. We were surprised to encounter the Wyeth exhibits in the "Southern experience" milieu. The Andrew Wyeth works were predictably good while the Jamie... More

Two floors of wonder of mostly wonderful art. According to taste, of course, some of it looked like my 9 year old was finger painting. Lol. Overall, a very nice visit and would return again.

We visited with some reservations assuming the collection might reflect local conservative limits. To our very pleasant surprise, GCMA has an excellent, albeit small, contemporary collection that has not been shackled by any artistic censorship. Well worth the visit.

They had a few very impressive items, some good ones, and the rest are unremarkable or bad. They had a nice showcase of southern artists and cartoon art.

We spent about 1 1/2 hours wandering the galleries at this modest but very nice museum of art. There is a wide range of types of art and various periods, styles and techniques on display. The galleries are well annotated and interesting. The staff are very friendly there, and were helpful. There are essentially only two floors and 6 galleries,... More

Pretty neat collection that spans several different genres of art. There is figurative art, but also a wing with some abstract expressionism. If your an Andrew Wyeth fan,m you're in for a treat. This museum has a good, solid collection of Wyeth watercolors that are part of the permanent collection.
