Celebrating Charleston’s most creative season, Zero George Street Hotel launches the second installment of “George X George” during Spoleto. The boutique hotel has once again partnered downtown Charleston’s The George Gallery and one of its most popular artists, Alan Jackson, to install a multi-piece art show that will run from May 17 through June 10 at 0 George Street.
Exhibiting artist Alan Jackson is originally from Savannah and has lived in Charleston since 1979. He is a LEED accredited professional architect with a private practice in Charleston. His artistic efforts have developed out of an interest in deconstructing architectural drafting and rendering techniques and reassembling them into simply composed and precisely rendered non-representational works that contain elements of both drafting and painting.
For the George X George show, Jackson is working on an exclusive series of modern, abstract paintings that are inspired by the texture and patina of Zero George’s historic building materials and colors, and the stately geometry of the hotel’s exterior spaces defined by the piazzas, patios and landscape.
Hotel guests, visitors, and locals are all welcome to view the installation, which will be displayed throughout the hotel and restaurant. The George X George Alan Jackson collection will be available for purchase through The George Gallery located at 50 Bogard Street.
