The Blue View Artist Co-op was formed in 2011 by six like-minded Upstate artists with the intention of establishing a public gallery on Main Street in Pickens, S.C. While the bricks and mortar location is still under consideration, the co-op presents exhibitions featuring its member artists. Nature and landscapes are their predominate subject; however, the co-op features a variety of mediums – including pottery and blacksmithing.
The Reserve at Lake Keowee Community Foundation is a non-profit organization created to enhance the quality of life at The Reserve and in the local area while fulfilling a sense of community and philanthropy for The Reserve’s members.
