If you live in an apartment in West Columbia, SC and are an art lover, you should be sure to attend “Columbia Open Studios” April 11 and 12. This spring art event is sponsored by the Center for Contemporary Arts in an effort to acquaint the public with the work of artists in their own environments.
Among the studios not to be missed is Julia Moore’s Over the Mantel Gallery, that opened a little more than a year ago and houses the work of more than 30 regional artists.
Located on Carlisle Street, Over the Mantel is just a few doors down from its sister establishment, Studio Carlisle, where Moore and seven other artists paint.
Over the Mantel has brought to Columbia an exciting display of artwork combining a variety of styles, subjects, and techniques. The paintings hang side by side and offer the viewer an eclectic showing of original art.
Julia and manager Julie Coffey are busy painting and preparing the space for visitors. Please join them for a unique and exciting weekend in April.
