The sponsors for this year’s show were All Occasion Florist, Bates House of Turkey, Camellia City Florist, Grayson’s Gift Shop, Elizabeth Wilson Florist, Greenville Shoe Shop, Forget-Me-Not Florist, Murphy’s Clothing Store, The Pineapple, Preister’s Pecan Company, Russell Stover, Thomas Sanderson Antiques, Vintage and Walker Business Supplies.

The art show traditionally has been held at the Whitney Bank, but due to the new Hwashin tenants taking possession of the office spaces this month, the show is moving next door to a new &uot;permanent&uot; facility in the old Camellia Realty office building. Some of the artwork featured in the Spring Art Show will be on display this week in the new location.
