Walking The Art Walk
Last night saw one of the most fun Art Walks that Charleston has seen. The incredible weather made for a great turnout, and the galleries were well-stocked with cool objets de art. We even had musicians playing in the streets, as you can see in our headline image.
I took the PopCult camera around, and snapped pictures of the evening’s artsy goodness. Starting at The Convenience Store, I trekked over to Taylor Books, The Good News Mountaineer Garage, The Purple Moon and Visions Day Spa before heading home for the night. After the jump, you can check out some montage photos of the exhibits I took in. Click ’em to enlarge.
The Convenience Store, on Summers Street, is one of the city’s new cool places. It is a convenience store, but instead of having gas pumps, they have an art gallery. For the next month they’re featuring a high-contrast exhibit called “Duality.” A reception with the artists on hand will take place June 12.
Taylor Books features some great work by Dane Klingaman.
Last week’s “Head First” show at the Hansford Street Art House migrated to The Good News Mountaineer Garage for one night only. The young artists showed off quite a few pieces that were new since last week.
The Purple Moon celebrated one year in their new location on Quarrier Street. A large crowd came out to check out the art and atomic age antiques.
People were enjoying the summer-like weather outside The Good News Gallery.
Vision’s Day Spa featured great work by Bob Rosier, Joe Bolyard and others.
I hope we’re this lucky with the weather for next month’s Art Walk, which falls during FestivAll. This was just a beautiful evening. It makes a person feel really good about the culture and diversity we have here in Charleston.
Stuff To Do
As promised, we have two cool comics this week, and they’re both actually fancy book-type compilations, not regular comic books.
Next week in PopCult look for our usual features, production notes for RFC 71, with WATT 4 and Hitchcock Circus, and a look at a very cool weekend.
