This Saturday - BYOA Downtown

Four years ago, before there was a Showroom Gallery and Performance Hall, Hub-Bub hosted the very first BYOA (Bring Your Own Art) Show at a vacant downtown building. The event was such a success that it became an annual tradition. For the past two years the event has been held at The Showroom and has attracted over 40 artists from around the area and attracted crowds of hundreds of people each time.

In 2007 the event maxed out the space prompting Hub-Bub to search for a larger location. On Saturday November 22nd Hub-Bub will host the fourth annual BYOA show at 125 W. Main St., in the old Kimbrell’s Furniture space on Morgan Square.BYOA is a spontaneous art exhibit and sale with no selection process or submission required by the artists.
It’s a great opportunity for artists to have their work shown and the perfect place to for patrons to find a unique gift for the holiday season.This is always a fun event and the use of the vacant space will only add to the excitement as the building is filled with art on easels, propped and leaned. The event will take place from 7 til 10pm and in addition to the varied selection of art, crafts and jewelry those attending can enjoy food, drink and music by local DJ Tony P. Admission is free and the public is encouraged to attend.

BYOA is open to all artists to participate and those interested in becoming involved should visit the opportunities page for more details. Spaces will be given on a first come, first served basis.Call Stephen at 864-582-0056 or email with questions.This event is sponsored in part by The Spartanburg Downtown Association and Buck Brandt, Attorney.
