citygallerywaterfrontlogo

City Gallery at Waterfront Park’s upcoming exhibition, “Flowers for Tony” will be on view from Jan. 30 to March 6, 2016. This exhibition explores the work of Tony Csavas, a prolific painter, inspiring teacher, and significant part of so many lives. Prior to his death, planning was underway for the Press Street Gallery of New Orleans to bring Csavas’ work to Louisiana for an exhibition organized by Press Street Executive Director Bob Snead and Csavas’ longtime partner Karen Ann Myers. This posthumous traveling exhibition, entitled “Flowers for Tony”, was on view in New Orleans from Feb. 14 – Mar. 02, 2015 and next travels to Charleston.

For partner Karen Ann Myers, Csavas made several paintings and drawings entitled “Flowers for Karen.” It felt appropriate to produce flowers for him. Friends, family, former students, and others are invited to participate in the exhibition by contributing at least one 2D piece created in any medium measuring 8″x8.” This piece can be a visual reflection on Csavas’ life, his effect on the person as an artist or friend, an interpretation of a piece of his that is memorable, or simply a depiction of a flower. A written reflection in addition to the submission is encouraged. The resulting exhibition and work will be developed into a publication catalog after the exhibition. To date, 44 people have produced “Flowers for Tony.”

Create one (or more) 8″x8″ painting following the guidelines below and mail or drop off to the City Gallery at Waterfront Park – due January 22

No provision has been made for return of works. The organizing hope is that this is a growing collection as a tribute to his memory. If you require that your work be returned, provision of return shipping label and packaging is required at submission.

The City Gallery reserves the right to display the exhibited artwork at their discretion.

A catalogue will be produced to accompany the exhibition. It will include images of all the “Flowers for Tony” produced in 2014 – 2016 and a selection of Csavas’ paintings produced in 2009 – 2014 while living in Charleston.

If you would like to submit your work via mail, please send it to: City Gallery, 34 Prioleau Street, Unit A, Charleston, SC 29401.

The City of Charleston Office of Cultural Affairs in Charleston, SC, Presents Artist’s Talk with Mary Edna Fraser – Apr. 18, 2015

April 11, 2015

citygallerywaterfrontlogo

Join artist Mary Edna Fraser for an informal discussion about her work and technique on Saturday, Apr. 18, 2015, at 2pm at the City Gallery at Waterfront Park in downtown Charleston, SC.  Her new exhibition, “Above, Between, Below,” featuring batiks on silk, which will be on view through May 3, 2015, at the gallery.

415waterfront-gal-mary-edna-fraser

“Above, Between, Below” is an ambitious exhibition of work by Lowcountry artist Fraser, depicting breathtaking perspectives of space, earth and deep sea through her signature large scale batiks on silk. Developed with leading researchers in the fields of planetary science, coastal geology, and oceanography, “Above, Between, Below” bridges cutting-edge science and the living, ancient art of batik to afford a vantage point the human eye and traditional cameras cannot reveal.

Collaborators Ted Maxwell (Planetary Scientist Emeritus at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum), Orrin H. Pilkey (Professor Emeritus of Geology at Duke University) and Cindy Lee Van Dover (Director of the Duke University Marine Lab) assisted Fraser in developing batiks as a vehicle to share information, to educate and to inspire. The artist has drawn upon their scholarship and insights to develop images that emphasize the fragility of ecosystems and bring the grandeur of distant spaces near to us. Fraser refers to her pieces as “snapshots” in geologic or galactic time and asserts that artists can condense and interpret scientific observations so that viewers may develop a greater understanding of our place in the universe.

Established in 2003, the City Gallery at Waterfront Park, located at 34 Prioleau Street, Unit A, is a free and non-profit gallery owned by the City of Charleston and operated by the Office of Cultural Affairs.

Gallery hours during exhibition dates are Tue.-Fri., 10am – 6pm and Sat.-Sun., noon-5pm.

City Gallery at Waterfront Park in Charleston, SC, Offers Artist’s Talk with John Duckworth – Dec. 14, 2014

December 9, 2014

The City of Charleston Office of Cultural Affairs presents: “AWAKE by John Duckworth”, an Artist’s Talk offered Sunday, Dec. 14, 2014, at 2pm, at City Gallery at Waterfront Park in Charleston, SC.

Join us as artist John Duckworth personally leads visitors through a guided tour of his “AWAKE” exhibition. During this free event, attendees will receive an insider’s view, as Duckworth hosts a sequential tour explaining his inspiration and process, revealing how his personal exploration of Eastern contemplative wisdom traditions inspired this current exhibition.

We encourage those who have not yet experienced “AWAKE” to arrive at least one hour early to view the installation in its entirety.

1214chas-city-gallery-John-Duckworth2

Local artist John Duckworth has transformed the City Gallery at Waterfront Park into an immersive space within a guided exhibition layout, displaying his photography, sketches, paintings, video, and audio installation. Duckworth’s most comprehensive show to date, this non-traditional presentation of the artist’s work encourages viewers to become more aware and focus on the present moment, freeing their minds of constant to-do lists and daily thoughts in order to embrace calmness and contemplation.

Much of Duckworth’s work has an underlying meditative quality, embedded both in his Buddhist-inspired paintings and his most-recognizable photographs of nature. “AWAKE” will feature over forty artworks in an exhibition setting that also highlights Duckworth’s creative and meditation practices.

Duckworth states: “I believe that art/creativity is an essential component of human nature. Art inspires people to access their imagination, and imagination is the fuel that propels dreams and purpose in order to realize true human potential, and reveal our authentic self. Exterior guides often assist this sort of inner revelation; I believe that my artwork can function as a guide. My creative process is a personal exploration that mirrors my meditation practice and both are healing and self-transformative, and the result (my ‘art’) can resonate with others like a tuning fork – and either awaken this seed within, or simply affirm that we’re not alone in our searching.”

The City Gallery at Waterfront Park is located at 34 Prioleau Street, Unit A, Charleston , SC.

Established in 2003, the City Gallery at Waterfront Park is owned by the City of Charleston and operated by the Office of Cultural Affairs.

Gallery hours during exhibition dates:
Monday, closed; Tuesday – Friday, 10am – 6pm; Saturday & Sunday 12 – 5pm. Please call the gallery for holiday closures.
