Saluda art studio set to celebrate an anniversary

Published 8:00 am Friday, May 13, 2022

The Jim Carson Studio and Gallery is celebrating its second anniversary on Friday, June 3, between 5:00 and 8:00 p.m. The Studio and Gallery are located at 20 East Main St. in Saluda, NC. 


Jim’s gallery opened in its present location in June of 2020, in the middle of the pandemic, so there was never a grand opening. The gallery has many of Jim’s oil paintings of various sizes, including landscapes, seascapes, mountainscapes, cityscapes, interiors, and still lifes. Jim paints  light and shadow as they fall through a scene, so there are lots of different subject matter.
