While this post is a bit delayed in getting air, I wanted to chronicle my journey to Charleston and my approach to galleries in this historic city. Charleston is about 6 hours drive from my home and holds promise of increased exposure for my artwork in a very international and cosmopolitan environment. It has become an "art" city with 60 or more galleries and a large regional art festival (Spoleto Festival USA) that attracts the kind of audience I want to appeal to.
We also found the hosts in Charleston to be exemplary of southern hospitality. The artists and gallery owners were very friendly and welcoming.
