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

See a Wish; Make a Wish at Plum Elements

Last week to see the interactive exhibition Wish, by local mixed media and assemblage artist Tina Hirsig at Plum Elements, 161 1/2 King Street.

Meet the artist at the closing reception, Thursday, September 24th from 5-7:30 p.m. The exhibition runs through September 26th. Art reviewer Nick Smith wrote this about the show, "Hirsig's wish for open-minded teachers and administrators won't always be fulfilled. At best, she'll encourage others to dream and question the status quo of our school system. As an educator, she feels that she doesn't have much of a voice, so she expresses her opinions through her art. If that's the case, then she's expressed herself eloquently at Plum Elements."

Charleston's home for artful living, Plum Elements is located at: 161 1/2 King Street. Hours are Monday through Saturday from 10-ish a.m. until 6 p.m., on Thursday until 7 p.m. and
by appointment. For more information contact: 843.727.3747 or info@plumelements.com.
