[image-1]ART | Movin’ on up

Back in September, the John M. Dunnan Gallery closed its King Street location and set to work carefully renovating a three-story building on Church Street in Charleston’s historic French Quarter. The renovations have been extensive, with a keen eye toward preservation and chic interior design, and on Black Friday the gallery will have its grand opening to the public. Take a break from the chaos of holiday shopping to have a glass of champagne and browse three floors of the artist’s paintings and sculptures, including new nude charcoal gesture drawings and abstract and figurative paintings on paper. Dunnan, a native of Washington, D.C., is a local philanthropist and nationally-recognized artist. He’s known for his vibrant abstract and figurative paintings, life-size sculptures, and charcoal drawings. The works will be on view through the New Year. Nov. 28-Jan. 1, 3-7 p.m. www.johndunnan.com.
