Charleston’s Historic French Quarter is home to roughly 30 galleries within walking distance of one another. Located within the original walled city and founded by the French Huguenots, the French Quarter has become a national arts destination.

Four times a year, on the first Friday of March, May, October and December, the buzz of art and the taste of wine take over the French Quarter as galleries open their doors and offer food, wine and art. Join art lovers on May 4th, from 5-8 pm and enjoy the beauty of the French Quarter on foot. The French Quarter is located between S. Market and Tradd, Meeting and the waterfront. Start at any participating gallery and pick up a French Quarter map. For more information, call 843-722-1944 or visit www.frenchquarterarts.com.
