Corrigan Gallery: Art Present and With a Future


Corrigan Gallery opened its doors September 1, 2005 at 62 Queen Street, Charleston, South Carolina, just off the corner of Meeting and Queen streets in the historic area mistakenly called by some the French Quarter. The gallery exhibits works of art both representational and abstract possessing the charm of old Charleston with a contemporary edge. Representing artists whose work is beyond the traditional approach to the southern landscape of marshes and palmettos, there are new works to see on a regular basis. Artistic vision partnered with an intellectual strength and astute handling of the materials describes the work on display.

Bowing to the masters and looking to the future, the gallery began with featured artists Beverly Derrick, Kevin Bruce Parent, Sue Simons Wallace, Karin Olah, Kristi Ryba, John Moore, Manning Williams, Daryl Knox, JD Cummings, Lolly Koon, Candice Flewharty and Lese Corrigan. This list includes three photographers, two abstract painters and a printmaker and a mixture of all three.   Later artists added were John Hull, Lynne Riding, Tim Fensch and Daphne vom Baur. Flewharty, Derrick, Fensch and Riding have since left the gallery for other projects and we do include others as visiting artists. (view by clicking.

The gallery is showing art that is just for that - art! Not following this year's fashions but reaching towards the future and showing respect for the past, the presented artwork fulfills the beholder's need for beauty and the collector's wish for strong investments. This is art for the soul; art that lets the eyes breath fresh air. Past visitors watched paintings in process on location and view works that have been done en plein air as well as in situ studio pieces.  The studio has been moved to a new location to leave more room for paintings!

Charmingly contemporary art for all budgets.

10am to 5pm Monday through Saturday and by appointment.  Later opening every other Monday and Thursdays.
