For the Love of Art Festival, a one-day event dedicated to local art, will take place Dec. 13 from 12-4 p.m. at Tradesman Brewing Co.

Artists Chad Dyar, Katie Ritchie and Julie Glass partnered with Tradesman Brewing for the festival, which will showcase art from Redux Contemporary Art Center and the Charleston Artist Guild.

“It has been a very tumultuous year for everyone and art is an excellent tool for processing emotions and bringing healing,” Ritchie said in a press release. “I think it will be a great opportunity for artists to showcase the work they have created in 2020.”

The festival organizers added that they want to help reconnect the art community in a way that is socially distanced and in-person. “We’re here to give artists and art appreciators an opportunity to reunite face-to-face, while keeping everyone’s safety as our first priority,” Dyar said in a public statement.

For the Love of Art Festival is free to attend.
