You may remember walking by 535 King St. earlier this year, seeing pieces of art suddenly appear in the windows of a vacant building (the spot on Upper King was most recently home to bookstore/art gallery PULP, which left in Jan. 2017). INTRO, which graced 535 King St. this past March, is back, displaying work from 10 “rising visual artists” for nine days.
INTRO opens on Fri. Nov. 9 with a reception from 5-7 p.m.; the work will be on display through Sun. Nov. 18. The show, curated and hosted by Art Mag owner and publisher, Matt Mill and owner of Spire Art Services, Michele Seekings, identifies and showcases work from emerging Southern, contemporary artists.
The show’s featured artists include Craig Lynberg, Katherine Dunlap, Paul Cristina, Alex Waggoner, Chambers Austelle, Adam Eddy, Anne Rhett, Chris Nickels, Carrie Beth Waghorn, and Sara Pittman.
In a press release Mill says, “At Art Mag, we’re always thinking about ways to help art lovers discover, connect with, and champion new artists. We are proud to partner with Spire Art Services to highlight these ten talented young artists, and are excited for what this show represents for the future of Charleston arts.”
Mill and Seekings hope this pop-up exhibition serves as a foundation to develop an annual week devoted to the visual arts.
