Art has become an important part of The Purple Moon since our opening in downtown Charleston nearly 5 years ago. The Purple Moon originally focused almost exclusively on vintage, mid-century modern design, furnishings, accessories and art but quickly evolved into one of West Virginia’s showcase galleries for local, regional and national artists as well.
The move to our current location at 906 Quarrier Street in downtown Charleston in May 2008 enabled The Purple Moon to expand our showroom and gallery space and dramatically increased our ability to present artwork from contemporary artists in addition to vintage art and home furnishings.
In order to better showcase the regularly changing art exhibitions and the artists we represent, The Purple Moon is launching this new website to focus entirely on the art portion of our business.
Our vintage website, thepurplemoon.com, will continue as it has in the past and will remain your portal to the best of mid-20th Century design. We’ll also continue our popular justamodernguy.com blog which focuses on incorporating modern design and art into everyday life.
We hope you’ll visit this site and our others often and, of course, we’d like to see you soon at The Purple Moon.
