The Knot Market Mixer

by Benjamin Keys

Gibbes Museum of Art 
Charleston, South Carolina
18 x 24 in. | Live Event Painting

Moroccan Glam was the theme of The Knot's 2014 Market Mixer hosted at Charleston's Gibbes Museum of Art.  Wedding vendors from around the area were invited to mix and mingle, celebrating a great year of weddings ahead.  We were absolutely honored to collaborate with the talented ladies of Pure Luxe Bride, who created this oh-so-chic soiree!  A plein air painting made perfect since with the style and garden terrace of the art museum.  The event was a great success and we had a huge reaction from so many vendors as they watched the painting come to life.  In fact, so many vendors asked to purchase the painting that we decided to auction it away with proceeds donated straight to Lowcountry Food Bank!  Enjoy this gorgeous photography below by Aaron and Jill of Aaron Nicholas Photography.  You'll see this colorful event was the perfect palate for a painting!  Special thank you to The Knot for sponsoring yet another incredible Charleston Market Mixer!
