Make the Most Out of December’s Art Walk

The last Art Walk of 2018 will take place on Friday, December 7, and there’s no better way to explore Charleston’s historic art district than by foot. From 5PM-8PM, more than 40 galleries will be participating in the event, which will allow you to see a range of artwork while mixing and mingling with artists and indulging in light bites and beverages. Here are our top four ways to make the most out of this year’s final Art Walk.
Dress Comfortably

While the majority of the galleries are confined to the French Quarter, there’s still a lot of ground to cover. We suggest wearing comfortable walking shoes to help navigate uneven walkways and cobblestone streets. Depending on the temperature, you’ll want to have a jacket in tow. If you forgot proper attire, stop in to The Shops at Belmond Charleston Place where you’ll find a unique collection of shops to browse.
Make Dinner Reservations

Plan the perfect evening, post-Art Walk, with a stop at Charleston Grill. Savor Four Diamond Dining while indulging in highly creative and uniquely presented cuisine from only the finest ingredients. Wine Director and Sommelier Rick Rubel is the mastermind behind the largest wine collection in Charleston. The traditional French service creates a flawless dining experience, and you can relax in the warm, intimate ambiance while enjoying the sounds of nightly live jazz.
Spend Time At Mary Martin Gallery

Stop by the Broad Street location of Mary Martin Gallery to view the contemporary wildlife art exhibit from Laura Palermo. Here you’ll experience fine art, conservation, and a personal bird experience in collaboration with Charleston’s Center for Birds of Prey. Plus, check out the second Mary Martin Gallery, located in the East Gallery of The Shops at Belmond Charleston Place, where they will be showcasing local artists.
Savor The Holiday Scene at Belmond Charleston Place

After dinner, take a stroll through the hotel lobby to discover a replica of the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express (VSOE). Marvel at the train’s intricate design as it travels across 300 feet of track. Complete with a hand carved, eight-foot mountain, hundreds of handcrafted trees, and a miniature world of ski resorts, hotels, inns, shops, and vintage automobiles, this scene will certainly put you in the holiday spirit.
