A collaboration between multiple local artists and the Charleston Parks Conservancy, City Gallery’s latest exhibit, Posing Possibilities: Drawing Inspiration From and For Charleston’s Parks, opens on Fri. Nov. 17 from 5-7 p.m. The exhibit, if the title doesn’t make it abundantly clear, celebrates public parks and the people who nurture those spaces. The works will be on display through Dec. 18.
Posing Possibilities features work from photographer Jack Alterman, who presents a series of portraits of Park Angels, the volunteers dedicated to improving Charleston’s parks; Alan Jackson and Hirona Matsuda collaborated to present a series of works based on six of Charleston’s parks; painter Karyn Healey examines the proposed Lowline park; Janie Park presents landscape studies of several Charleston parks; and Fletcher Williams III will install two murals — meditations on public art — in the gallery.
In addition to the opening night reception, the gallery also hosts an artists’ talk with the exhibiting artists on Sat. Dec. 9 at 2 p.m. Learn more online at citygalleryatwaterfrontpark.com.
