July is kicking off with a big weekend for art. We know it's hot out there — why not step into an air conditioned gallery and peruse local art?


North Charleston City Gallery hosts the public opening of Christopher Dotson and Evie Zimmer’s joint show. Both artists paint with an abstract feel, and their works will be displayed all month. Read our preview of the show while you're at it.

Elizabeth Melton-Seabrook’s ocean-themed artwork makes a splash at Saul Alexander Gallery with a reception from 5 to 7:30 p.m. The Seven Plus One Exhibition features octopi and, of course, the number seven.


Abstract artist Charles Nkomo’s exhibit opens at Mary Martin Gallery, showing off his portfolio of colorful depictions of African animals, cities, and landscapes. Nkomo focuses on modern day issues in his native Africa using bold colors and patterns. The opening runs from 5 to 8 p.m.
Upon Shoulders, an exhibit by Adam Hall, portrays landscapes from an elevated standpoint, aiming, among other things, to give the viewer the perspective of a young boy on his father’s shoulders. Read our preview here. The reception is at Robert Lange Studios from 5 to 8 p.m.

Addelle Sanders’ A Transition: Fiber in the 21st Century opens at the Charleston Artist Guild Gallery. The reception, from 5 to 8 p.m. showcases Sanders' work, which discusses the connection between the fibers used and current political/social issues.
