A R T S 266 CS D Kevin LePrince opened LePrince Fine Art on King Street nearly fve years ago, and in April moved the gallery to its new space across the street. The gallery doubles as a studio, so LePrince paints there six days a week, encouraging guests to watch him work and to ask questions about the process. He likes to feature numerous works from a limited number of artists, rather than one or two pieces from a slew of different people. "I'm trying to encourage artists to be creative and go out on a limb by giving them a good bit of wall space," he says. "That way, they're not restricted, and they can get outside of their comfort zones, push the envelope a little." The gallery walls are currently shared by LePrince, landscape artist Vicki Robinson, Bulgaria native Ignat Ignatov and Mark Bailey. While Bailey makes indoor scenes come to life, Ignatov gets inspi- ration from the outdoors, which is why the two will share an exhibit this fall called Charleston Inside and Out. The show is set to open the frst Friday in November. LEPRINCE FINE ART LePrince Fine Art 843-442-1664 leprince.com
