Atelier Gallery Charleston 153 King Street, Charleston SC 29401

Gallery Mission
Atelier Gallery Charleston supports emerging, and established artists, collectors, and public audiences by providing a venue for the access, celebration, and advancement of abstract, traditional and contemporary art.

Curatorial Emphasis
The gallery features a collection of contemporary paintings, sculpture and works on paper with a curatorial emphasis on both abstraction and innovative techniques. Work outside of this niche will be considered on a more limited basis.

Criteria
All work represented by the gallery is juried for appropriateness based upon: quality, subject matter, critical relevance, price, marketability, professionalism and an artist’s career development with relation to the particular needs of the gallery at a given time.

Non-Discrimination
It is the gallery’s policy not to discriminate on any basis other than the selection criteria described above. Occasionally the gallery will solicit works from specific community groups that are under-represented or marginalized in mainstream culture. We do this in order to offer exhibitions to as diverse a group of artists as possible while supporting the gallery’s curatorial mission.

Submission Instructions

Include list identifying all images. Indicate: Artist Name, Date, Title, Medium, Size and Price.  Include Artist Statement and Resume.

Declined Submissions
Declined submissions will only be returned in the case that a SASE is provided.

Resubmission
Due to scheduling limitations, it is not possible to accept all suitable works submitted. Artists whose works are declined are invited to resubmit after one calendar year. Artists accepted after resubmitting are given scheduling preference over artists who are accepted after applying for the first time.

We love to LEAF town!

This weekend is the semi-annual Lake Eden Arts Festival, better known as LEAF, an arts-centric, family friendly, rollicking good time in the mountains of North Carolina.  You can camp out, take a yoga class at sunrise, learn to contra dance, listen to music from cultures that span the globe, all in one weekend!

This is definitely one of Olivia’s favorite festivals.  I have a bachelorette party this weekend, otherwise I’d be joining her.  So I hope you can and plan to go–and that you already have tickets.  It always sells out, so get moving to www.theleaf.org today!
