Concierge.com's insider take:

Broad Street has always been Charleston's formal seat of power—the courthouse and long-standing legal firms line the sidewalks—but it's also the place where artists set up shop in the historic storefronts. Most are members of the French Quarter Gallery Association—a reference to Charleston's historic French Huguenot neighborhood, not the fabled New Orleans neighborhood. The organization holds art walks during fall and spring with artist lectures and wine and cheese receptions. Their Web site also has a handy map of the 30 or so galleries in the area. Obviously there is no shortage of showrooms that specialize in Lowcountry imagery (landscapes, coastal abstracts, Carolina wildlife, Charleston scenes). The best stuff is at the Edward Dare Gallery, which deals in Jim Darlington's architectural watercolor works, Beth McLean's Impressionistic giclée prints, and photographer Susan Lucas's black-and-white portrait photography. Devotees of more functional artwork should make their way to Rivendell Woodworks, where the emphasis is on Arts and Crafts furniture, ceramics, and textiles.

Edward Dare Gallery open Mondays through Saturdays 11 am to 5 pm.

Rivendell Woodworks open Mondays through Saturdays 11 am to 5 pm.
