Charleston, South Carolina is the place you are thinking of when you think of southern charm. The name alone evokes the sweet smell of yellow jasmine and the ruffling of petticoats in the soft evening air. As plentiful as the Spanish moss hanging from the trees, Charleston’s art galleries are around every corner. But don’t let the lilting twang of the traditional southern belles lead you to believe everything is old-school. This town prides itself in the contemporary art of its galleries. Come on down 'yall!

In 2013, artists Mackenzie King and Kelly Wenner Grossman were sharing a small studio space on the old naval base. One day they had an idea: Open a progressive art gallery that would allow us to highlight local emerging artists, have live art demonstrations and events, and have studio space of their own. While Charleston has plenty of art galleries, Mackenzie and Kelly believed there was a place for something different. The Art Mecca was born. Today the Art Mecca of Charleston is where some of Charleston's most innovative rising artists congregate, and it's where locals and traveler's alike find that special piece to give their homes a real sense of place.
