When: Fri., July 15, 5:30-7:30 p.m. 2011
At the height of summer in the Holy City, there is little that can beat walking around downtown in the evening. It’s the time when the heat finally starts to cool off and you’re not sweating bullets. The Charleston Fine Art Dealer’s Association will be upping the ante on July 15 by adding food and art to the equation as they host their sixth annual Palette and Palate Stroll. At the event, ticket holders are invited to stroll through downtown Charleston and stop in participating art galleries to sample food from some of the area’s best restaurants. The pairings this year are Charleston Renaissance Gallery and Circa 1886, Corrigan Gallery and Cypress, Ella Walton Richardson Fine Art and Blu, Horton Hayes Fine Art and La Fourchette, John C. Doyle Art Gallery and Caviar and Bananas, Robert Lange Studios and Charleston Grill, Martin Gallery and Social, Smith-Killian Fine Art and McCrady’s, the Sylvan Gallery and Halls Chophouse, Wells Gallery and the Boathouse at Breach Inlet, and Helena Fox Fine Arts and Anson. Guests may begin at any of the galleries and go to as many as they wish. More than 100 artists will be featured, and photography, sculpture, paintings, and glass art will also be on view. The evening benefits CFADA’s visual arts scholarship fund. Reservations are required, and there are a limited number of tickets available.
