The popular Mount Pleasant shopping district will transform into an art-lover’s paradise May 26 – 27 at 1218 Belk Drive during the Charleston – Mt. Pleasant Art Festival. In addition to local artists, one hundred artists from across the nation are set to display their stunning works in a prestigious show encompassing fine jewelry, exquisite works of art and hand-crafted apparel and decor. The festival also includes a full craft market with handmade organic soaps, live plants, tasty edibles, affordable and practical artisan-created works and more. Residents and visitors alike will find something for everyone during this free, two day artistic affair which runs from 10 am to 5 pm both days.

Unlike other exclusive art showcases, the Charleston – Mt. Pleasant Art Festival invites patrons to meet the artists themselves, commission a custom piece and discover the inspirations and processes behind each handmade-in-the-USA masterpiece. Ample parking is available and pets on leashes are always welcome.

Presented by Howard Alan Events (HAE), producer of the nation’s finest juried art shows, the Charleston – Mt. Pleasant Art Festival with Craft Marketplace represents original, hand crafted artwork selected by an independent panel of expert judges from hundreds of applicants. HAE’s careful vetting process also ensures a wide array of mediums and price ranges will be offered during the event.

“We are thrilled to bring this free art festival to the Mount Pleasant area while so many other art and cultural offering are taking place,” says Howard Alan. “We look forward to introducing the nation’s top artists to the visitors and residents throughout the Charleston area.”
