We’re preparing to reveal our third and final round of artwork for 2015! The spring and summer share pick-up events were held earlier this year at The Faculty Lounge and Mixson Bath & Racquet Club, respectively. The next pick-up event, dedicated to the fall season, takes place on Thursday, November 5, from 5:30-7:30pm at Blue Ion, located at 301B King Street in Downtown Charleston. Shares may be purchased on site or ahead of the event here.

The fall season features works by Jordan Fowler, Nina Garner, Lisa Shimko, and Alex Waggoner. The four artists will be present at the November 5 pick-up event and will speak briefly about the 32 pieces of original artwork they each created specifically for and exclusive to Charleston Supported Art beginning at 6:30pm. The pick-up event, open to the public, will be the first time these works will be revealed. The pieces, which include metal sculpture, 3-D mixed media, and paintings will not be available for purchase anywhere else.
Shares for all three seasons will be available to purchase and carry home at the fall pick-up event. Payment plans are available.
We’re midway through year two of this year’s program and are offering the community another chance to get to know our 12 artists and their work. Shares for the 2015 program went on sale in February and the first season of artwork was revealed at a spring pick-up event in April at The Faculty Lounge. Shares for each of the program’s 2015 seasons are currently available for purchase online. To aid collectors in their buying decision and accommodate in-person purchases, this FREE Meet + Greet event is set for June 18, from 6:30-8:30pm, at Local Works. That’s just one week away!
The 12 featured artists will be present so that the public can get to know them and their work. Complimentary refreshments for the evening will be provided by The Frothy Beard Brewing Company, Cannonborough Beverage Co., and Wine Awesomeness. AutoBanh FoodTruck will be on site offering up their delicious banh-mi sandwiches for those looking for dinner or a snack. DJ Black Olive will be playing the mingling music! All are welcome to attend.
This is an excellent opportunity to buy and/or reserve a share, meet other artists and collectors, enjoy some tasty food and beverages, and witness the growth of Charleston’s art scene for yourself!
Our 2015 artists can’t wait to meet you!
