Who are the Patrons?
The Patrons are an advocacy and support group of the Winthrop University Galleries. Their purpose is to reach out to the community, alumni, and friends of Winthrop University, to enrich the diverse cultural life in York, Mecklenburg, and surrounding counties of the Carolinas, and to promote and support Winthrop University Galleries.
Most importantly, the Patrons provide the Galleries and the students within the Departments of Fine Arts and Design with a vital link to the community. You can support the Galleries and its role in the region, in Rock Hill, and within the campus community through your generous membership. Your membership will help support artist residencies, exhibitions, publications, and Friday night receptions.
You can also become a Patron by supporting the Undergraduate Juried Exhibition with a merit or purchase award.
