Another month has flown by, and it’s time for one of our patented PopCult ArtWalk Photo Essays! Commentary will be kept to a minimum so that I can get this finished and still sneak in a couple of hours of sleep.
The big news for April was the grand opening of the Purple Moon offshoot, Modern By Design, a way-cool new furniture/accessory store that offers reproductions of classic Atomic Age furniture designs as well as artwork and wall decor. Check out that cool corner at the photo on the right.
With such cool items as Arbe Jacobson’s famous Egg Chair and artwork by Leo Posillico and William Goebel, Modern By Design promises to add a new dimension to interior design in Charleston. We love what they’re showing, and can’t wait to see what the future holds.
New exhibits by Sherry Z. Powell and Mark Tobin Moore highlighted a striking ArtWalk from Art Emporium.
Frida Kahlo was on hand during ArtWalk to promote Jabtaz.com, the new interactive Arts Calendar!
K.D.Lett Photography/White Oak Photography
Last month we brought you photos of this new entry into ArtWalk, and messed up by atttributing the entire studio to K.D. Lett. Actually this is a shared space featuring K.D. and Michelle Krompecher of White Oak Photography. Located at 107 Hale Street, this is one of the coolest photography showcases in town.
The Purple Moon
With the main focus on The Purple Moon’s offshoot, Modern By Design, there was still plenty of cool stuff at the Moon.

Good News Mountaineer Garage Gallery played host to four artists who were offering up portraits on the spot. Dave Litz, Amy Van Gogh, Chris Dutch and Mark “Innerviews” Wolfe were on hand for a fun evening of interactive art.
There was some great new work at Romano Associates from Tiffany Aliff, Michael Anthony Smith and Ellen Fure. Proceeds from the sale were going to help Tiffany and her family rebuild after devastating storm damage hit their home in North Carolina.
Taylor Books Annex Gallery
Taylor’s is presenting the impressive “Egg, Flower, Soup.” This is an amalgam of works by Amanda Jane Miller and Staci Marie Leech-Cornell. There’s some terrific work here.
