FOUNDED in 1982, Lowcountry Artists Gallery is the oldest artist-owned and -operated gallery in Charleston. Located at 148 East Bay St., the expansive four-room gallery recently underwent renovations.
Lowcountry Artists Gallery represents 32 artists, both owners and guest artists. Their work caters to national and international collectors and spans a multitude of styles, a variety of subject matter and many media. Lowcountry Artists Gallery also offers stunning jewelry, sweetgrass baskets, pottery, blown glass, bronze and copper sculptures. The gallery’s famous copper frogs are suitable for indoor or outdoor display.
“We’re really proud of the diversity our gallery offers,” says co-owner Sandra Roper. “Not only the artists themselves, but also their styles and the mediums in which they work.”
Roper shares ownership with local artists Norma Morris Cable, Fer Caggiano, Stephanie S. Hamlet, Lynne Hardwick, Kellie Jacobs, Rana Jordahl and Ivo Kerssemakers.
Lowcountry Artists Gallery is open seven days a week. When you visit, don’t forget to take a selfie with the gallery’s life-size, whimsical copper frog. For hours and a full list of artists visit the website or facebook.com/lowcountryartists.
