Art and culture await at City Art! Bohemians, casual artists, and high society will all find something to spark conversation and an enjoyable evening at our art gallery in Columbia, SC. With over 75 years of combined experience, our owners provide expert gallery services, custom framing, event planning, and art supply sales. City Art has become not only their home but a place where art lives and breathes.
Our three spacious galleries are supervised by Gallery Director Wendyth Wells, who is also available to consult on projects of any size. Whether you’re looking for a single painting to complete a room in your home or need assistance with a large corporate account, Director Wells has the experience and artistic eye to help you find just the right pieces. She has helped style businesses such as the Adesso building on Main and Blossom, and the Vista Bank.
If you’re in need of custom framing services, we’re up to the challenge. We’ve taken on projects for tribal belts, buffalo hides, wedding dresses, and even shotguns. If you ask Framing Designer Heather Noe what her most memorable project was, she’ll say “That’s easy. We designed a collage of memorabilia after soul singer James Brown was honored at Lincoln Center in Washington D.C.” No project is too large, too small, or too unique for our frame designers!
If you’re hosting a wedding reception, social, fundraiser, or corporate event, let us help make it a night to remember for years to come. City Art’s sophisticated and warm atmosphere and historic location make any event unique! Situated in fabulous Downtown Columbia, SC, our event space is warm and intimate, while still providing an elegant and spacious area for your guests, wedding party, and more. Guests are always welcome to wander and explore our three galleries filled with a variety of artistic treasures.
