Gibbes Museum of Art

  • Charleston_gibbes_art_gallery

Opened in 1905, the Gibbes holds more than 15,000 art objects. The permanent exhibit, The Charleston Story, rotates pieces among 150 works from the colonial period to the present. It showcases artwork that was created in the Lowcountry, painted by Charleston artists, and that illustrates life in Charleston through the years. Of note are works from the Charleston Renaissance, a period of cultural revival from 1915 to 1940, by Alice Ravenel Huger Smith, Elizabeth O’Neill Verner and Anne Heyward Taylor. The miniature portrait collection charms with its tiny likenesses by English, French and American artists, while temporary exhibitions related to Charleston appear throughout the year.
