Elevate Gallery will open at 140 East Bay St. this spring, bringing with it a slew of new and emerging African-American artists from all over the country. Meisha Johnson opens the gallery, her second, with the hope of bringing more diverse art to downtown Charleston.
Here's a rundown of just some of the artists represented by Elevate Gallery (peep the slideshow to see examples of their work):
Philadelphia-based artist Jeleata Nicole who creates a variety of pieces, from animal portraits on plexiglass with oil to hand-painted cranial helmets (which she started painting after her son was diagnosed with Plagiocephaly).
