The return of springtime means one thing to some art lovers: the return of the Art Walk. While openings this winter were few and far between, it seems that every gallery has something going on this weekend.

Rebekah Jacob Gallery kicks things off on Thurs. March 4 with Paper, Metal & Coffee: The Art of Appropriation, works by Tim Hussey, Douglas Bourgeois, and Ward Schumaker. There will be an artist talk in the gallery at 5:30 p.m., and the opening reception lasts until 8 p.m. Also on Thursday is the opening reception for the Writing Women Back Into History art exhibit at the MUSC Auditorium, with works from Lese Corrigan, Diana Lauderdale, Leigh Webber, and more.

The official Art Walk is Fri. March 5 from 5-8 p.m. Some highlights include Fred Jamar’s first solo show at Robert Lange called Private View and Bill Mead’s solo exhibit at Scoop. Over at Corrigan Gallery, Paul Mardikian’s Palimpsest “reminds us that a painting is more than a two-dimensional illusion.” Ann Long Fine Art presents plein air painter Marc Dalessio’s Giardino Italiano, and in a similar vein, Martin Gallery has paintings of Lake Como, Italy from Kathleen Billis. At the Charleston Artist Guild, Pam Avery Miller is the featured artist of the month.

Not affiliated with the Art Walk, but definitely worth checking out, is the Center for Photography’s exhibition featuring the Visual Culture Award Maker of the Year, Larry Louie. Louie presents beautiful photographs from Tibet.
