North of Calhoun: New Works by Laurie Meyer
May 05, 2017 - May 19, 2017
Laurie Meyer is bringing Charleston's Radcliffeborough and Cannonborough/Elliotborough neighborhoods to life by capturing long-time residents, restaurants new and old, historic architecture, and more.
Meyer, who co-owns Meyer Vogl Gallery and has resided in Charleston for 35 years, is attempting to capture the essence of a place that’s changing at warp speed. “I wanted to hurry up and capture scenes from these beautiful, soulful neighborhoods that hold a special place in the hearts of many Charlestonians,” Meyer says. “Blink and there’s change. I’m attempting to capture a moment in time, an energy.”
Subjects include the interiors of new restaurants (such as Xiao Bao Biscuit), exteriors of local favorites (including Dave’s Seafood and Hominy Grill), churches, street scenes, people, and more.
An opening reception will be held on Friday, May 5, from 5 to 8pm, coinciding with the Charleston Gallery Association Art Walk. The exhibition runs from May 5 to 19.
