The Charleston Gallery Association — with more than 30 member art galleries — continues the work of gaining the world’s recognition of Charleston as a global "Art Destination." The galleries showcase local, regional and national artists' works in a variety of styles and media including realism, contemporary, abstract, landscape and Lowcountry, in original paintings, jewelry, photography and sculpture. The Charleston Gallery Association grew out of the French Quarter Gallery Association, which was established over 20 years ago and included more than 25 galleries. Now we have an all-inclusive group incorporating the greater Charleston area with more than 40 art galleries currently participating, with more member galleries joining every year. With this vibrant and growing art community in Charleston, the CGA strives to support all visual art galleries and bring greater recognition of Charleston’s status as an "Art Destination”.
