It’s a big week for the visual arts in Charleston, with openings from two of the city’s most talented artists: David Boatwright and Colin Quashie. Both have openings on Fri. April 6 from 6-8 p.m., so you’ll have to hustle if you want to hit up both.

But let’s start with Thursday. Sk8 and Cre8, a fundraiser for Pour It Now, is happening at Hope and Union from 5:30-9 p.m.

Colin Quashie‘s show, The Plantation (Plan-ta-shun), is at Redux. Not for the easily offended, the exhibit explores race relations in the South.

Over at City Gallery, you’ll find the biggest show of David Boatwright‘s long career, including older works as well as some new stuff.

Head to Robert Lange to see the amazing things Kerry Brooks does with colored pencils. That’s Friday from 5-8 p.m.

And up the street at Corrigan Gallery, you’ll find works by Gordon Nicholson at the same time.

Take a peek at Rebekah Jacob’s new space at 502 King Street on Friday from 5:30-8:30 p.m. The official grand opening is April 12.

You can meet painter Linda Elksnin at the Real Estate Studio during Second Sunday on King Street from 11 a.m.-4 p.m.

There’s lots more going on this weekend, so see all of our visual arts listings here.
