Atrium Art Gallery features 14 local, regional, and national artists creating beautiful contemporary abstract works of art. Located in the heart of Downtown historic Charleston, for the last 10+ years.

A Charleston native, owner John Townsend grew up South of Broad Street on the Peninsula of Charleston just blocks from the gallery.  After retiring from careers in the US Air Force, the National Weather Service, and his own weather software company, he was inspired to follow his passion for art and open an art gallery to create art.

He built a studio within the gallery to nurture his lifelong love for art and creativity. Upon visiting the Atrium Art Gallery, you will likely find John in his studio, creating his next mindful artistic creation.

Dave Spurgin

"David paints to bring balance, love, passion, and gratitude for life into his art. He is inspired by nature and how we communicate within a world that is filled with chaos. Through his art, he quiets his thoughts and focuses on what is important in life. "

Amy Gordon

Her work ranges from sleek and minimal to organic, complex, and multifarious.  Amy brings a unique balance of subtle surprise and authenticity to her all of her paintings. The art is an invitation to empathize and connect.  Amy, the artist, and human are in every piece she creates. 

Charlotte Foust

"A single mark or line on a blank surface provides a starting point for an intuitive exploration of the visual language found in abstraction. Working in mixed media... allows me to layer and rework textured surfaces – with each painting resulting in a delightful discovery of things unseen. "
