Charleston Art Galleries

Charleston is well known for its flourishing arts scene, and one of the best ways to take a piece of the Lowcountry home with you is to find the perfect piece of local artwork to hang in your home. Charleston’s art galleries feature a wide variety of styles and works by regionally and nationally acclaimed artists.

The majority of the art galleries in Charleston are located in two general areas, Gallery Row and the French Quarter. Gallery Row runs along Broad Street and the French Quarter and includes Church, State, Queen, and Chalmers Streets, just a block north of Broad Street.

A great way to experience Charleston’s thriving art scene is by taking an official Artwalk. The Charleston Gallery Association hosts four official Art Walks each year. These are held on the first Friday in March, May, October, and December.
