Circular Congregational Church (Upper Lance Hall) | Art of Recovery
This award-winning exhibition features over 100 original works that take the viewer on a “journey through the challenges and triumphs of the human experience.”

May 24-June 9. 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Daily. Free to attend. Circular Congregational Church, 150 Meeting St. Downtown

Cone 10 | For The Garden
Head to Cone 10 for their final exhibition before moving out of their spot on Morrison Drive, For the Garden. Cone 10 closes up shop after this show, and while they hope to eventually find a new location, this could be your last chance to see a lot of beautiful pottery, garden objects, and sculptures in one place for a while. Cone 10 describes this exhibition’s theme as a “playful and joyful way to go out into the world.”

On display through June 9. Mon.-Sat., 11 a.m.- 4 p.m. and Sundays 1-4 p.m. Free to attend. Cone 10 Studios, 1080 Morrison Drive. Downtown
Redux Contemporary Art Center | The Annual Redux Studio Artist Exhibition
Redux’s annual exhibition highlights the work of Redux studio artists (there are almost 40 of them!), with pieces that explore the dynamic nature of the greater creative community in Charleston. Each artist reflects on how their work is influenced by their immediate surroundings — and how the community is portrayed, inadvertently or not, in their art. And bonus — this exhibition is on display through July 13.

Through July 13, Tues.-Fri., 10 a.m.-6 p.m. and Saturdays, 12-5 p.m. Free to attend. Redux Contemporary Art Center, 1056 King St. Downtown. reduxstudios.org

Cannon Street Arts Center | Contagion
When you attend this art exhibition, held in the Cannon Street Arts Center, you’re invited to become part of a “visual chain reaction,” and are asked to fill in the blanks of this statement: “___ is contagious or ___ is not contagious.” Intriguing, right? Contagion, with artist Karen Jayne at the helm, becomes a collaborative installation, where the comments become part of the changing exhibition. Jayne hopes to explore how our personal action — or inaction — may encourage or discourage the spread of identified contagions.

Through June 9. Free to attend. Cannon Street Arts Center, 134 Cannon St. Downtown

There are daily demos from over 80 artists who will answer your questions about their artwork.
