First birthdays are always very special, and while most of us can’t remember ours, we’re sure the Charleston Artist Collective won’t have the same problem. The online gallery features nine artists who produce new works monthly that correspond to a selected theme (October’s is fauvism). While their anniversary show doesn’t have a specific theme, the collective will install their 8 x 16 and 16 x 16 unframed works at Stems, and all paintings will be available for purchase. Fifteen percent of sales from the show will benefit the Lowcountry Open Land Trust, adding to the almost $18,000 the collective has raised for local organizations.
