In the coming weeks, Charleston abstract artist Tate Nation, known for his boldly textured acrylic paintings, will be painting one of his stylized Charleston scenes on the front and back of this cello. You may have seen him painting this outside his gallery during 2nd Sunday on King Street.
The cello will be auctioned off at the Charleston Symphony Orchestra Fundraiser Gala in September. Tate Nation's mother was a lifelong musician, music teacher and cellist so he is honored to have been selected by the CSO for this project.
