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
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.
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
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.
