French Quarter Art Walk
When: Fri., Dec. 5, 5-8 p.m.
Charleston has made an art out of history and history out of art. Many emerging and established talents have made the Holy City an art mecca, and much of that is due to the French Quarter, home to 27 art galleries. It even has its own club —The French Quarter Gallery Association (FQG) — and four times a year, the galleries of FQG bust out free-flowing wine and stay open late for an evening stroll. “On any given art walk night we can have 500 or 600 people coming through,” says Robert Lange of Robert Lange Gallery. “It tends to be electric and exciting.” It’s this electricity that spurs many galleries to open new exhibits on Art Walk nights. Lange himself is debuting 16 new paintings in a series called Unfolding Pause. The paintings are “large-scale, time-consuming paintings of small transcendent moments,” he says. Julie Dunn of Atrium Art Gallery and president of the FQG notes that because many galleries debut pieces for the Art Walks, it gives guests the opportunity to connect with the local art community. “You can see the latest art while taking in the beautiful French Quarter Art District in Charleston,” she says. “You often will get to meet the artist at the event.” It’s an intimate evening that you can share with hundreds of strangers.
