Thanks City Paper for caring enough about my career to do a quick follow up to a piece you ran in 2006 about “creatives” under the radar that they predicted to “make a big impact on the local scene”. At the time I was running an art gallery out of a shabby sheik victorian on Cannon St here is a link to the article if you have an interest in ancient “arts” history. Here is what they had to say about my more recent work in downtown real estate. So nice to be mentioned!
Checking in with “Ones to Watch” from past years
Where Are They Now?
Back in 2006, Currie McCullough was busy with 53 Cannon, a small gallery focused on a variety of art including nudes, photography, and still lifes. McCullough was hoping to see the Cannonborough area become more of a hub for Charleston art events, and after a few years realized that she could accomplish more for the neighborhood as a mover and shaker in the real estate business. “Downtown Charleston is the perfect model for sustainable living,” she says. “I’ve formed a group for Cannonborough-Elliotborough business owners called C.E.B.O. and created a website to promote existing businesses and facilitate the opening of new ones [gocebo.com].”
A lifelong resident of downtown Charleston, she now lives in Wagener Terrace in a building that was the second oldest radio station in the state. McCullough has supported the opening of many new businesses in the Cannonborough neighborhood, including Eye Level Art, WildFlour Pastry, and Fuzzco. “I still collect art and advise my artist father, William McCullough, who is currently painting a series of landscapes for the Greenville County Museum.”
