Charleston Gallery Association in Charleston, SC, Offers Wine and Art Event – Aug. 27, 2017

August 9, 2017

On Sunday, Aug. 27, 2017, from 5 to 9pm, the Charleston Gallery Association (CGA) will host its inaugural Summer Wine Bouquet, with more than 20 local galleries displaying artwork atop the roof of the Mills House Grand Wyndham Hotel, in downtown Charleston, SC. Think CGA’s Art Walks — minus the walking, plus fine wine and delicious food!

Guests will also have the chance to taste a variety of wines, which will be paired with hors d’oeuvers prepared by Executive Chef Justin Hunt of the Mills House. In addition, several local artists are queued up for live painting demonstrations and artist lectures.

“This is a great opportunity for Charleston to see the strength and variety of our gallery scene all in one place,” says Sarah Miller, CGA President and owner of Miller Gallery. “Our hope is to make this an annual event that people use as an excuse to travel to Charleston in what would typically be considered the ‘off-season.’” The CGA’s mission is to promote Charleston as a destination known for its outstanding and diverse art, in addition to its historic charm and creative culinary scene.

Participating galleries include: Anglin Smith Fine Art, Cecil Byrne Gallery, Charleston Artist Guild Gallery, Corrigan Gallery, Dog & Horse Fine Art & Portraiture, Edward Dare Gallery, Ella W. Richardson Fine Art, Ellis – Nicholson Gallery, Fabulon, Grand Bohemian Gallery, Hagan Fine Art, LePrince Fine Art, Mary Martin Gallery, Meyer Vogl Gallery, Miller Gallery, Mitchell Hill, Principle Gallery, Redux Contemporary Art Center, Revealed, Sandpiper Gallery, Srebnik Gallery, The Sportsman’s Gallery, LTD, and The Wells Gallery.

The inaugural reception will be held on Sunday, Aug. 27, 2017, from 5 to 9pm. Tickets can be purchased at (www.charlestongalleryassociation.com/summer-wine-bouquet/).

Charleston Gallery Association Forms in Charleston, SC

August 8, 2015

History has been made in the Charleston, SC’s art world. The French Quarter Gallery Association with over 20 years and 25 galleries have re-branded combining with Charleston Fine Art Dealers’ Association – CFADA of 17 years and inviting other art galleries in the downtown and greater Charleston area to become the Charleston Gallery Association.

“We are thrilled to bring all the art galleries together to continue promoting Charleston as a global ‘Art Destination’ with now over 40 fine art galleries,” said Julie Dunn, former President of French Quarter Gallery Association now the first President of Charleston Gallery Association.

The visual arts community in Charleston has so much to offer from traditional Lowcountry landscapes to contemporary abstractions and everything in between.  Today’s art collector is purchasing art they love and Charleston offers a grand selection.  Charleston being a tourist town and voted #1 city in the country by “Condé Nast Traveler” readers and #2 in the world, our goal is to show the art collectors of the world that this city is a destination for quality art.  Promoting the galleries as a whole provides a unity and single voice that creates a contagious energy, and will not only bring visitors to Charleston for the food, history and charm but also for the art!

Join us for the next Charleston Gallery Association ARTWALK on Friday October 2nd 2015 from 5 – 8pm.  All Charleston Gallery Association galleries will be open with many of the artist in attendance along with refreshments served.

Official Charleston Gallery Association ARTWALKS are held four times a year on the first Friday of March, May, October and December from 5 – 8pm.  All CGA art galleries will be open.
