Charleston’s premier art gallery hosts seven temporary exhibitions each year (ranging from photography and prints to contemporary art and painting), in addition to the on-going “Charleston Story,” drawn from the museum’s permanent collection of some 10,000 objects. Items rotate every January and July (about 150 works can be displayed at one time), but are always chosen to highlight how the city has developed over the last 400 years; think colonial portraits by the likes of Benjamin West, art from the Charleston Renaissance of 1915 to 1940, and Southern Modern and contemporary art, including work by Georgia-born Jasper Johns.
