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.

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.

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 images of recent, available work on CD Rom (jpeg 350dpi) or via email.
Include list identifying all images. Indicate: Artist Name, Date, Title, Medium, Size and Price.  Include Artist Statement and Resume.
Complete submission packages should be delivered or mailed to the gallery at 153 King Street Charleston, SC 29401. You may also send via email to info@theateliergalleries.com.

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

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.

Visit Atelier Gallery at 153 King Street, Monday – Saturday 10 am to 6 pm.  All are welcome.


A Message from Plum Elements…

Attention Charleston:

We are losing a gem of a store in Plum Elements.  They are closing their doors for good on Monday March 15th–so get on by and pick up some wonderful gifts & art.  To Plum Elements, you will be dearly missed!

From Andrea Schenck, owner:

It’s official the 15th, next Monday is the LAST day for Plum Elements.
I’ll be here Tuesday through Friday packing what remains… so if someone happens by transactions can still occur… but Monday is it.

Hours from now until then 10-ish AM until 6 p.m., until 7 on Thursday. Will be open on Sunday as well.
Many things at least 60% off up to 85% off.

No Mask? No problem.. Get REDy to Wear…..


The REDy to Wear Party is more than just masked fun…. It’s the kickoff party to raise awareness about the need for trained, skilled artisans in America, particularly Charleston.

The proceeds benefit the American College of the Building Arts. The ACBA educates and trains artisans in the traditional building arts to foster exceptional craftsmanship and encourage preservation.

Local artists including Jeff Kopish, Max Miller, Leigh Magar, Mary Edna Fraser, Charles Ailstock, David Boatright, Kate Stevenson Long, Lese Corrigan, William Bates, Ann Darby Parker, Susan Marlowe, Patrick Pelletier, and Kevin Harrison have all designed unique, playful, and lavish masks that will be auctioned off during the party.

Bid on the feather adorned masks to sweet grass or metal made masks and everything in between! All artists will also be on site at the event to meet and greet.

What you need to remember: REDy To Wear will be taking place THIS Thursday, October 8th, at the Rebekah Jacob Gallery from 6pm-9pm. It is FREE and open to the public.

Don’t forget…. The REDy to Wear party is a precursor to a larger event later in October, The Red Party. Proceeds will also go to the ACBA. It’s a perfect opportunity to don a mask from the REDy to Wear auction in cocktail attire and mingle at the Old City Jail. For tickets and information on the upcoming Red Party (October 29th), please call 843-577-5245 or visit the ACBA website at www.buildingartscollege.us.

Hope to see you all there!
