our history 


The Charleston Gallery Association with more than 40 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 including those of landscape, Lowcountry, realism, contemporary, abstract natures, photography and sculpture.  Charleston Gallery Association was formerly 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 this growing art community in Charleston, our association wants all visual art galleries as one and to move the growth of Charleston as an "Art Destination” forward.
