JULY Featured Artist - Steve Jacobs
The Charleston Artist Guild Gallery announces Steve Jacobs as the featured artist for the month of July. His exhibit “Catch the Light” will showcase his work from July 1 through July 31, 2014.
Steve Jacobs was born in Germany, but grew up on picturesque Shem Creek in Mt. Pleasant, SC. He fell in love with the waters and architecture of the Lowcountry and Charleston. His passion for the area is reflected in his artwork where he uses oil, watercolor, acrylics and pencil, and his painting style ranges from loose to photo realistic. He paints from photographs and from plein air sketches done on location in places such as Charleston, Savannah, The Caribbean, and St. Simons, GA, capturing the beauty and history of Charleston and the world as he sees it. Stop by the gallery during the month of July to experience the beauty of the way Steve is able to capture the light. The CAG Gallery is located at 160 East Bay Street, Charleston, SC.

Pattison's Academy Outreach Program - JUNE 18 and 26

Last year we had around 40 artists work the camp for these severely disabled children. We have the supplies lined up, and artists that are willing to help the children create art. Some children need hand over hand assistance, some can do it all, just need guidance.
Thanks to all who have helped make this possible in the past and can make it again this year.

APRIL FEATURED ARTIST - David Scheffler
The Charleston Artist Guild announces David Scheffler as the featured artist for the month of April. His exhibit entitled "Color It Charleston" will showcase the colorful streetscapes of Charleston. An opening reception is planned for Friday, April 4th from 5pm to 8pm at the CAG Gallery located at 160 East Bay Street, Charleston, SC. The reception is free and open to the public.
David's lifelong hobby of photography developed into a serious art form when he retired from the corporate world in 2009. After growing up in Southern Ohio where exposure to art was limited, the ability to appreciate the world as a subject for fine art took hold through his education and travels.
He has continued to further his creative evolution with workshops and courses at several institutions. He enjoys capturing streetscapes, both natural and man-made. "There seems to be a never-ending stream of subjects. I find myself making mental notes of photo opportunities while driving, biking or walking so I can then return to the scene to get the ideal shot."
Enter the visual world of David Scheffler with a visit to The Charleston Artist Guild Gallery during business hours, Mon-Sun 11am - 6pm from April 1 - April 30. His work can also be found at ctsqarts.com
