The John C. Doyle Art Gallery has been in business for over 30 years, as Mr. Doyle began painting with many other local Charleston painters in the 1970’s when there were no galleries in Charleston, and eventually began selling out of his home and studio on King Street in the 1980’s. Mr. Doyle passed away in November of 2014 after completing well over 2000 paintings in his prolific career. It was his specific wish the gallery continue in his namesake, and gallery director Angela Stump is honored to abide this wish. We offer many original oils, sketches, and photography by Mr. Doyle, as well as over 150 high quality reproductions on canvas in all of the various subjects he painted – from blue hydrangeas to blues musicians.
We also represent fellow native artist Margaret Petterson, and offer her vibrant original oils and unique mixed media monotypes.
We are also thrilled to offer the serene oils of award-winning OPA painters Anna Rose Bain and Dhwani Parekh, as well as internationally renowned bronze works by sculptor Geoffrey C. Smith.

CHANGE IS IN THE AIR ~ Help us welcome Lowcountry watercolor artist ANNE MAREE LAWRENCE!
We cordially invite you to join our reception from 5-8pm to celebrate Anne Maree Lawrence, our newest fine artist added to the gallery roster! This prolific talent has been painting for over 40 years, and we are thrilled she will be in attendance for this special event! Come out and MEET THE ARTIST and see her unique works in person. Born and raised in Charleston; Anne Maree paints in a traditional style with a hint of contemporary flair in every subject she chooses. With deep ties to the Lowcountry, Anne Maree is the neice of renowned Charleston watercolor artist Anne Worsham Richardson, and operated her gallery for over 40 years before closing in 2016. She then began to focus more on her own path as an artist, and we are honored to represent her work. There will be all new paintings she completed especially for this special opening reception.
We will also be introducing 2 new very special John C. Doyle original oils from his private collection, never before on the public market.
This is in concert with the October Charleston Gallery Association Quarterly Art Walk - so there will be over 40 galleries downtown having special live painting demos, live music, hors d'oeuvres, wine, and a lot of kindred spirits!!
