What is this?

This blog will be a resource for recording thoughts, ideas, schemes, and anything else that develops on the way to forming a unified voice and center for the Charleston arts community. Everything presented here is subject to change.

How does this work?

There will be a designated set of authors who will be responsible for posting topics for discussion, to begin with anyone may comment on a discussion topic or suggest a new post but only the authors may post new topics (this is mostly to avoid spamming and over posting). In time this can develop into an online wiki or discussion board style web page of information and ideas, but at the moment a blog is the most direct, immediate and open way to track the development of the ideas being developed. if you have a suggestion or want to post please send email to

The Art Movement of Surrealism

You are cordially invited to share with me a special evening at the City Gallery.
On Thursday, April 9th at 6 p.m., the last of our Art History Lecture Series, "The Art Movement of Surrealism," will take place.

Not only is this a great opportunity to learn about surrealism from art collector and historian, Robert S. Seay , but also to view a select group of original graphics by the 20th century's greatest masters:

Salvador Dali, Rene Magritte, Joan Miro, Marc Chagall, Pablo Picasso, Max Ernst, Paul Klee and more

A special thanks to:

-The City of Charleston's Office of Cultural Affairs, Sponsor
- ART Magazine, Sponsor
-Dish and Design, caterer for the event

Look forward to seeing you on Thursday!
