For over a decade, The Wells Gallery has played a strong role in developing historic downtown Charleston, South Carolina into a fine art destination. Through its ever changing collection of fine art, the gallery successfully represents an eclectic grouping of contemporary artists from the surrounding region and abroad, who paint in a variety of styles and subject matter.

Continuing in the tradition of the Wells Gallery, the premiere gallery at The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island is dedicated to providing its visitors with a distinctive grouping of contemporary works. Residing within the walls of The Sanctuary hotel, this innovative and unique gallery has been carefully designed to enthrall its visitors with its collection of original oil paintings, watercolors, sculpture and glass produced by some of the nation's most sought after artists.

Primarily presenting the works of regional artists who have proven to embrace the Island for all its splendor and natural beauty, the gallery is the region's only to specialize in works of art that celebrate Kiawah Island. In addition to exhibitions and workshops with regional artists the gallery plans to host exhibitions for visiting artists from all around the country.

Works exhibited by the following artists: Karen Larson Turner, Shannon Smith, George Pate, Jennifer Smith Rogers, Gary Gowans, Glenn Harrington, Betty Anglin Smith, Felice Killian, and Russell Gordon.
