Redux Contemporary Art Center’s Artists Open Their Curtains to the Public in Charleston, SC – Dec. 5, 2009

This bi-annual event celebrates the diversity and vitality of the visual arts at Redux (www.reduxstudios.org). Come see 20 artists in their working environment and gain insight about their technique and process.

Redux is home to Charleston’s most creative artists. Each artist at Redux concentrates on developing a personal artistic vision. Redux’s exhibition program and events program makes for a resourceful location that has a supportive atmosphere where studio renters are constantly exposed to visiting artists, artist lectures and most importantly, the ideas of their neighbors. This results in a creative momentum for everyone.

This event offers a unique opportunity to experience artists at work in their own studios. Visitors can look at art, talk with artists, and learn about new techniques, all in an open-house, informal environment. While you enjoy the variety and quality of the artwork, you will be supporting art, artists, and a valuable tradition in the city.

There is, of course, no charge to the public, and aspiring artists of all ages are especially welcome!

Current Redux artists include: Sally Benedict, Tina Christophillis, Shannon Di, Kaminer Haislip, Michael Heagerty, Tim Hussey, Barbara Looney, Karin Olah, Tommy Ozmore, Timothy Pakron, Nate Phelps, Chase Porter, Isa Salazar, Nancy Santos, Kate Long Stevenson, Liz Vaughan, Luke Vehorn, Lesley Wamsley, Ivy Williams and Lindsay Windham.

Redux Contemporary Art Center is a non-profit gallery, studio, and education center. Through diverse programming and a full studio facility, Redux promotes and encourages all forms of artistic creation, while introducing and educating the public to current trends of contemporary visual art. The Redux Studio Program offers emerging and under-represented artists full access to professional artist studios. Individuals work in a productive atmosphere alongside other contemporary artists. The 6000 sq. ft. space is equipped with 15 private artist studios and Charleston’s only public darkroom and print shop.

Redux Contemporary Art Center is located at 136 St. Philip Street, in downtown Charleston, SC.

For further information call the Center at 843/722-0697 or visit (www.reduxstudios.org).

And, I’ll add this as it wasn’t mentioned anywhere in the press release – these artists would also be very pleased if you purchased some of the artworks they have made. Some in the art community don’t like talking about selling art. I’m a pimp for the visual arts – I never mind bringing up prices. It costs money to be an artist, it’s hard work, studio rent is due every month – so it’s a good thing when the public buys art so artists can do what they do best – create art.

So go and revel in the supportive atmosphere at Redux, but it would be really nice if you purchased something to take home – even if it’s just a membership to Redux.
