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 26 member and guest artists—seven of whom were added in the last year. Their work caters to national and international collectors and spans a multitude of styles, a variety of subject matter and many mediums. Lowcountry Artists Gallery also offers stunning jewelry, sweetgrass baskets, pottery and bronze sculptures, which 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 Ballentine-Cable, Fer Caggiano, Stephanie S. Hamlet, Lynne Hardwick, Kellie Jacobs, Monnie Johnson, 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.
