Trager Contemporary has moved to a new permanent location on Upper King Street. 

Trager Contemporary, a Charleston-based fine art gallery founded in 2017, has moved from its former temporary space at 290 King Street to a permanent home at 577 King Street.

To commemorate the move up the street, Trager Contemporary is hosting a grand opening celebration on Saturday, May 12. The afternoon will feature talks and demonstrations by artists Cory McBee, Bri Catarino and Jane Braddock along with gallerist Kelly Trager, starting at 2 p.m. From 6-10 p.m., One Kool Blow will entertain, and food and drinks will be available on-site. 

The event is free and open to the public. For talk and demo schedules, visit Contact for information or to RSVP. 

The gallery is now officially open on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Thursdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. It is closed on Mondays.

Trager's goal from the start has been to build a program of abstract contemporary art and host relevant events and benefits. The gallery was founded by professional dancer and professor Kelly Trager and former actor, writer and producer Josiah Trager.
