Paris Café

Paris Cafe, located in the heart of downtown Greenville, has more than just great authentic French Cuisine. There’s also an impressive display of canvas artwork throughout the building, which was done by
The lady in red, and pictures of the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe are just a few examples of some of the canvases that welcome you as you walk into Paris Cafe. The artwork is nothing less than pleasing to look at. But the canvases aren’t just pretty pictures, they do a very good job of adding to the sophisticated environment of the cafe. The combined affect is elegant and appealing.
Paris Cafe is quaint, charming, and the perfect place for a drink or meal with your friends and family. It’s one of the few places where you can sit down, relax, and enjoy the wonderful food and artwork without feeling like you’re being rushed. To be able to have a cup of coffee while enjoying beautiful artwork leaves you with a great feeling.
Paris Cafe is a nice break to your busy day. It’s easy to realize you’re in a better mood from just being there, no matter how long you’ve stayed. When you leave Paris Cafe, and step back on Main Street, you might be a little disappointed that you’re going on with your fast paced life, but you’re certainly not disappointed you went there. So if you’re in the mood to sit down, relax, have a nice conversation, and look at some lovely artwork, Paris Cafe certainly delivers.

When you walk through the doors and into the Village Hospital, located at the intersection of Highway 14 and Westmoreland Road, you get a feeling unlike any other. The natural, healing environment of the hospital is made apparent by the artwork,design, and natural lighting of the state of the art facility. To experience a feeling of peace and serenity as you walk through the halls of a hospital, such as the Village Hospital, is very uplifting, as opposed to the cold, bleak feeling one usually gets when walking through any sort of medical building.

The elegant and modern architecture of the Village Hospital is definitely noticable; from the inside and outside. The inspiration for the building came from a dogwood tree. As you walk through the hospital, you see elements of the dogwood tree and nature everywhere. The first and second level floor pattern mimic the trunk and branches, and the third and fourth level floor pattern mimic the leaves of the dogwood tree. Why the dogwood tree? For many years, the dogwood tree has been used for medicinal purposes.

The photos, by Kevin Silvey, which have been put on canvas by Canvas One, are placed in every hallway throughout the hospital. These canvases, along with a lot of plans for the architecture of the hospital have been selected by Gaby Mitchell. These nature themed canvas photographs definitely add a positive touch to the healing environment of the hospital. The effect of the natural lighting in the hospital also adds a nice touch to Silvey's canvas photographs.

Canvas One has been serving the Upstate by putting artwork on canvas for three years. They were able to put approximately 108 of Kevin Silvey's photographs on canvas for the Village Hospital. Of course, Canvas One doesn't just put photographers or artists work on canvas. Along with retouching, they are able to do restorations, digital paintings, expansions, colorizations, collages, pop art, and photo split panels of any picture, painting, or drawing.

The artwork and the architecture along with the medical professionals at the Village Hospital ensure a wonderful experience to anyone who goes there. Whether it's visiting a loved one, or visiting the hospital for your personal medical attention, no matter if it's a short visit, or a lengthy one it will be more pleasing, relaxing, and serene than any other hospital you've been to.
