Allison Williamson founded Charleston Artist Collective in 2010. Her passion for art led her degree in Art History at the University of the South, including courses at Parsons School of Design in Paris and an intensive study on pre-historic caves in the South of France. Her passion for collecting original art came about during her five years managing a gallery in Park City, Utah that specialized in Russian Impressionism. During Allison’s years there she organized and directed art shows in Palm Springs, Philadelphia, Charleston and San Francisco. She also had the amazing experience of going to Russia to visit artists in their studios and select art for the gallery. In 2006, her twin boys were born and her family returned home to Charleston where she started a business helping local artists orchestrate their shows. After helping a group of artists put on three annual shows of their sketches, studies and practice work, Allison realized she had talented artists eager to step up the hours they spent practicing their craft as well as an ever-expanding group of people interested in buying their work. The blending of these two discoveries is what you will see, an online art gallery that shows and sells the work of the artists involved in the Charleston Artist Collective.
