Cherington Love Shucker, Greenville Center for Creative Arts:
After approximately 20 years living elsewhere – including a decade in Manhattan – Greenville native Cherington Love Shucker returned to her hometown with her husband, ceramic artist Darin R. Gehrke, and their daughter in 2014. Shucker says they choose Greenville because of its welcoming, family-friendly vibe, along with its vibrant arts and culture scene, which was a must for the couple.
“We knew my husband could be a successful full-time artist in Greenville,” Shucker says. “Plus, I loved the idea of raising my daughter in the place that gave me so much.”
