Art Appreciation with a Social Twist

As someone who appreciates art, it is hard not to get excited about a city who's downtown streets crowd several times a year with folks moving from gallery to gallery taking in everything from oil painting to photography to glass blowing. An Art Walk, held the first Friday each March, May, October, and December is an excellent way to take in the French Quarter and appreciate artwork in a social setting. Galleries in the French Quarter will open their doors for extended hours and greet guests with hors d'oeuvres, drinks, and recent work.


Art Walk Dates and Time

**The Charleston Gallery Association will decide which dates art walks will take place in 2020 and 2021 based on the safety of guests and gallery staff. Please stay tuned and check with the Charleston Gallery Association for updates.

Art Walks are typically held the first Friday in March, May, October, December. 

5:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

Participating Charleston Art Galleries

A wide array of mediums and styles are represented in the French Quarter Art Galleries. For a list of participating galleries, click here. Participating galleries have maps of the French Quarter galleries to help guide guests once they arrive. Visitors may start in any gallery they please and visit as few or as many as they like. If folks can't make it out for one of the walks, the galleries are well worth visiting during their regular operating hours also.
