Serenbe's central place for
artists, the arts, and culture
The Art Farm is a vibrant artist complex that provides a place to bring people together in support of the arts, with the belief that art in everyday life can create a greater understanding of the world.
The Art Farm's vision is to be a nationally recognized arts champion and forum for cultural dialogue by creating a vibrant community of artist cottages & workspaces that provide a serene, stimulating environment for engaging with the arts. The signature program is Art Over Dinner, a series of intimate gatherings with artists, personalities and the organizations that support their work. The Art Farm holds regular programming including workshops, pop-up art shows, and more throughout the year.
Art Farm Director
Megan Schaeffer is the Art Farm Director at Serenbe. After receiving a BA in Arts Management from the College of Charleston, Schaeffer completed the Sotheby's Institute of Fine Art intensive program on Gallery Management and Curatorial Studies. She was a founding team-member of the Charleston, SC chapter of Creative Mornings, a monthly breakfast lecture series focusing on leaders in the creative community. Her time as Outreach Coordinator for Artist & Craftsman Supply, an employee owned art supply company, led to a love of art supplies (ask her about types of oil paint, she'll keep you a while) and, more importantly, arts education.
Most recently, Schaeffer was the Artist Liaison & Art Resource Coordinator for a prominent Atlanta art consulting firm. Since moving to Atlanta in 2015, she has worked with ArtsATL, an arts publication, on its programming and sponsorship, and serves on the advisory board of ArtsNOW. She is driven by a passion to build creative communities and create meaningful opportunities for artists.
