Elsewhere Artist Collaborative Review

Set inside a former thrift store, this Greensboro original—a combination art museum, studio, and school—brings complete sensory overload via an astounding explosion of art and artifacts collected over several decades by its former owner, Sylvia Gray. When the store was in business, Gray sold hardly anything, but that didn't keep her from constantly expanding her vast collection (or hoard, you could say) of whatnots and thingamajigs. These days, a colorful cast of resident artists creates new work from this musty treasure trove. Expect colorful plumes of fabric hanging from the walls and toys, books, jewelry, and so much more stuffed into every corner of this large space. You can't buy anything here, but you can touch it all. A great time to see Elsewhere is during First Friday, when galleries and shops throughout downtown host an open house and art walk. Check out the scene every first Friday of the month, 6–9 pm.
