Charleston Mayor John Tecklenburg officiate a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at the Charleston Crafts Cooperative Gallery (84 North Market Street) on Friday, November 15th at 11:30 am. The ceremony will celebrate the Grand Opening of the new gallery space and the 30th year the co-op has been active.
Charleston Crafts recently moved from 161 Church St. where it has been for 11 years. The new location is directly across from the Historic Charleston City Market in downtown Charleston.
Charleston Crafts began 30 years ago, in May 1989, as a part of the Piccolo Spoleto Festival and currently features 41 local and regional South Carolina artists in a variety of traditional and contemporary art and craft media, including clay, woodworking, jewelry, glass, photography, fiber, metal, paper, polymer, and leather.
Charleston Crafts is owned and operated by its exhibiting members and is open 7 day a week. Each juried member is an equal partner and shares the responsibility of operating the business. It is the only cooperative arts gallery in the Charleston area.
