The Art Mecca of Charleston will feature eight local emerging artists throughout the month of December. These shows will be curated by gallery owners and artists Mackenzie King (Pittsburgh, PA) and Kelly Wenner Grossman (Columbia, SC). Visitors will enjoy live music and complimentary wine and hors d’oeuvres while meeting the artists and viewing their new collections.
Friday, December 6th, 5pm-8pm Jewelry artists and gallery curators Kelly Wenner Grossman and Mackenzie King will be having a gallery trunk show. Grossman creates her one-of-a-kind jewelry using natural stones, leaves and pinecones. “If you combine a love of art with a love of stones, it makes perfect sense that I became a jewelry artist" (Kelly Wenner Grossman). Kelly hand picks leaves and preserves them in gold, silver and copper. Her work has been featured in Army Wives, Charleston Magazine and Charleston Wedding Magazine.
