Charleston Arts Festival

When: Sept. 22-Oct. 28 2017

Last year marked the inaugural Charleston Arts Festival, a celebration that featured everything from musical performances to arts-inspired dinners. This year sees more of the same, with events sprinkled throughout downtown Charleston over several weeks. Things kick off on Sept. 22 with the third annual PBR arts showcase at Redux which highlights, you guessed it, PBR-themed art. Check out more visual art starting on Sept. 29 at the Beresford Gallery, where Vik Hart presents her exhibit, Stories From Firn. This show features paintings and drawings that "seek to form a connected narrative that offers a glimpse into the landscapes and inhabitants of another world." The best way to get to Beresford? On the Art Ride, which starts at Redux at 5:30 p.m., moves to The Southern for New Painting's opening reception, and then heads to Beresford. On Oct. 5 head to the Music Hall for Pecha Kucha 27; this fast-paced lecture series will feature a number of speakers talking about their work as visual artists. And for the grand finale? That will be held at the Royal American on Oct. 28 and will be similar to Jail Break, the event formerly held in the Old City Jail, featuring dancers, musicians, comedians, visual arts, and of course, plenty to eat and drink.
