Kate Long Stevenson's abstract/figurative paintings will be on display at the George Gallery's Focus In exhibit opening Fri., March 10
If you haven't noticed, the visual arts in Charleston are thriving. And the general public gets to experience this array of artistic talent for as little as zero buckaroos. This weekend, between oyster roasts, March Madness, and early St. Paddy's day festivities, indulge your creative side at one (or all!) of these four events.

George Gallery, 50 Bogard St.
The George Gallery's Focus In
exhibit features the work of three distinct contemporary artists, all based in Charleston. Alan Jackson is an architect by day; his oil on wood pieces are carefully drafted and laid out in precise grids. Kate Long Stevenson presents new paintings that are fluid, colorful abstract/figurative hybrids. Greg Hart's new pieces are emotionally demanding and political, focusing on issues of racial tensions in the South, particularly in Charleston. The exhibit will be on display through March 31.
