I want to help.

 
 

Marta Lanier

My life has been filled with the arts from a young age.  One of my fondest memories growing up was watching my mom take her acrylics out every weekend and paint on a new surface in our house.  By the time I left for college countless tables and walls, not to mention the typical canvas and wood panels, were filled with my mother's creations.  Her joy in art gave me a strong foundation in finding my own passion.  

Working with countless artists and helping them find their path in the small business world gives me such joy.  I value their creativity and learn from each and every artist I have interacted with during my career.  

I received a Bachelor of Arts in Music and Education from Emory University.  A passion for the arts has since led me to work with a number of arts organizations including Emory University's Youth Symphony and the Art Department of Furman University where I currently serves as Art Program Specialist.  As the Art Program Specialist I am responsible for organizing and implementing exhibitions for the  Thompson Gallery in the Roe Art Building.  I also serve as an advisor to art students and lead all Art Department events and student activities.  

In addition to my role with Furman University, I serve as Exhibition Coordinator for Greenville Center for Creative Arts and am responsible for overseeing coordination of Main Gallery exhibitions, from artist communication and scheduling to exhibition design and install.  I completed my Masters in Business Administration in Entrepreneurship and Innovation at Clemson University in August of 2018.
