In one of the country's finest art destinations, this tour provides a behind-the-scenes tour of Charleston’s flourishing visual arts community. Working artists guide intimate groups of up to eight guests through some of Charleston’s best galleries and shows at the time period of a guest’s tour. The artist guides share the background information on the artists, including their influences, connections within the community and other details a casual observer probably would miss.
