This is a busy day! Lots to do and to let you know about! Today is the French Quarter Art Walk from 5-8 PM, visit the local galleries, view the gorgeous art, take in the sights, and maybe even have a snack or two! The art walk is free and open to the public. It’s a great time for both locals and visitors. Peruse the streets of Charleston, walk from gallery to gallery… you might even see a demo! (Click HERE for a map of participating galleries and their locations)! Here is just a small sampling of what you’re in for tonight…
Vineyard II by Gene Costanza
A reminder that M Gallery of Fine Art has moved to 125 Meeting Street, Charleston – a beautiful gallery with so many fabulous artists! I hear Gene Costanza will be giving a demo on Friday night during the art walk. I certainly wouldn’t want to miss it! What an opportunity! I am so grateful to those galleries who take the time to have artists set up and painting, it truly is a thrill, especially when it’s a high caliber artist like Gene! This May Gene Costanza will be conducting a workshop in Charleston. Contact M Gallery for more information.
