–  JULY 15 – The Palette & Palate Stroll is a creative scholarship fundraiser by the Charleston Fine Art Dealer’s Association by strolling among many fine art galleries, tasting top local chefs’ delicacies & wine. (Tickets can sell-out, $45 from 5:30-7:30) (UPDATE: AT THE STROLL: What great exercise riding bikes downtown, then strolling to Galleries gave us plenty of fresh air and healthy appetites. Sparkling water, punch, wine, tapas, bonbons, and intriguing hosts & patrons filled our people-power fuel tanks to skip to the next gallery. Wow, there were so many layers and textures bombarding ALL 5 senses! What a blend of every “medium” of art: architecture, music, paintings, sculptures, food, wine, jewelry, clothes, the human figure ;o Even the conversation was poetic – hearing that net proceeds go to scholarships was music to my ears.

The wine was fine, but always put your best foot forward...ooh la la, those shoes...wonder if anyone sipped Champagne from them...hmmm? © Copyright 2011 DoTheCharleston.com

At this level, Food is Art, so were we allowed to touch it? Yes? YEAH! Of course, photography is also art, but pictures can't convey the aromas, tastes, textures, and energy this food had. © Copyright 2011 DoTheCharleston.com
