Open House: "Inspired Globally, Created Locally"

Charleston Crafts Cooperative Gallery Presents, “Inspired Globally; Created Locally”
Charleston Crafts Gallery is spotlighting four of our artists producing fine craft inspired by the global environment. Our highlighted artist will be on display during Charleston’s Second Sunday event, on
June 11th. While these talented artists will be featured, the work of all Gallery members will be on display and available for purchase, including jewelry, wood puzzles, encaustic paints, fiber art, mixed media collage, apparel and accessories, plus functional and decorative objects in wood, ceramic, and glass.
LuAnne Rosenzweig learned sewing and garment construct from her mother. Her wearable art began with cotton origami jackets consisting of 6 separate squares of fabric sewn together, and through folding and minimal cutting, the squares evolved into a swing jacket with raglan sleeves. In her commitment to care for the environment, LuAnne also repurposes vintage clothing into sling purses, long, multi-paneled knit vests, bow ties and hand-dyed silk scarves.

Raquel Quiroz is a fiber artisan originally from Peru living in Charleston, SC. Raquel designs all of her beautifully knitted and crocheted works of art into knitted garments, accessories and sweet, lovely dolls. She infuses contemporary style into centuries-old traditions passed down through her family for generations.

Regina Semko creates decorative, sculptural pieces handcrafted using traditional Origami and Kirigami cutting techniques. By using various papers, including Japanese Chiyogami and rice papers, high quality gift wrap, and recycled paper, she produces beautiful sculptural showpieces, and playful jewelry.

Fairoozan Abdullah is a paper artist and illustrator from Baghdad, Iraq. Her craft technique is known as Quilling. Using the paper quilling technique, she draws with paper instead of on paper. By using thin colorful strips of paper, she creates intricate, decorative wall art and three-dimensional stand-alone creations such as, vessels and sculptural pieces. Fairoozan’s art forms are intriguing and modern.
Charleston’s destination for Fine Craft since 1989, the gallery is located at 84 Society Street, just steps from King Street, in the city’s shopping, cultural and dining hub. The gallery is now open Monday through Sunday, 11:00-6:00 and staffed by its friendly and knowledgeable member-artisans.

The Charleston Crafts Gallery will be moving to 140 East Bay St. this summer. We’ll keep all informed so calendars can be marked to come by and see our beautiful larger space full of new work by our artisans.

Charleston Crafts Cooperative Gallery is a dynamic community of more than two dozen jury-selected artisans, and all are from South Carolina, making this the city’s only exclusively local craft gallery. For more information: 843.501.7522 or www.shopcharlesoncrafts.com
