“Collaborating with the creative source and how it informs me as an artist.” How I choose my subject matter … How I prepare myself to paint. What influences or inspires me. My approaches and what is in the works.


Tuesday, November 24th  •  2pm – 4pm  •  Doug Corkern

Bluffton’s favorite urban sketcher will be available to sign a re-release of “Bluffton Sketches” his soft cover book of favorite people, places and animals that make up our community.

Hand Building 101: Exploring Three Methods

People have been making pottery for 20,000 years. Today I will demonstrate three hand building methods that were used by the ancients and still employed by todays potters: the pinch pot method, coil building and Kurinuki. We will briefly discuss clay, what is it, where does it come from. Finished samples of each technique will be on hand.


about the gallery

“Four Corners is a little treasure trove of artistic possibilities tucked away on May River Road.”

– Nancy Wellard, Island Packet 2009

Four Corners Gallery, located in the historic part of Bluffton, is a collector’s gallery. It has the finest collection of artists and framing choices in the Bluffton area. In business since 1998, Four Corners Framing has changed with the times. Start up was focused on fine custom framing, it soon became the top choice for galleries and design firms. Charlene, the gallery owner, having had relationships with a number of long time local artists, soon began to expand the gallery offerings.

We feature artists that work in oils, acrylics, mixed media, photography, and clay as well as pencil and woodcarvings. The gallery’s overall theme has a lowcountry flavor, but also includes both traditional and contemporary work. They include works on paper, canvas, and board.

Our experienced staff masters the art of framing with innovative, informed and creative concepts. Customer care and satisfaction is our priority; museum treatments and oversize framing, our specialty. We continue to find and use various reclaimed woods as innovative framing materials. We are a full service gallery, offering design, hanging and shipping services for your art.

To see more about our gallery and artists visit the artists section of our website or find us on Facebook at Four Corners Art Gallery and Framing. Give us a call and let us show you some ideas for your project.


about the owner

From the High Country of Colorado to the Lowcountry of South Carolina, this is where Charlene Gardner and her family call home. Moving here in 1985, she saw opportunity in this developing tourist area. Working for women-owned community-based small businesses helped guide her to take the challenge of starting her own business.

In 1998, Four Corners Framing was born. Start up focused on custom framing, including work for other galleries and designers on Hilton Head. Bluffton was emerging as an art destination, so the timing was good. Charlene soon expanded Four Corners to include gallery space to show artists’ work as well as the framing. Four Corners is a space filled with a wonderful variety of collectable art. The experienced staff masters the art of framing with innovative, informed and creative concepts. As a community member, Charlene takes an active role on a number of community based boards with the hope of making our community a better place for our visitors to come and for all of us to call home.
