Join The Gadsden on January 9th for the start of its 2019 first Field Notes lecture series, a behind-the-scenes look at what makes Charleston such a vibrant place to live.
Field Notes is a new reoccurring series that offers behind-the-scenes glimpses of Charleston, inviting the public to gather with local experts to learn about the city’s history, culture and future.
Designer Cortney Bishop will discuss the future of Southern interior design inside a space she designed: The Gadsden, downtown Charleston's newest luxury, parkside residences.
Cortney's design vision runs the gamut of style and structure, balancing creativity, comfort, and functionality with a dose of modern flair. She attributes her innate ability to mix patterns and hues to her love for travel, art, fashion, and music. Ultimately, the path to interior design became inevitable as Cortney realized she could blend these passions, first with a partner in 2002, and eventually to founding her own interior design firm in 2009. Specializing in custom residential builds, Cortney has grown her business by collaborating with homeowners, architects, and contractors to create a robust portfolio of diverse, inspiring homes – each reflective of a client’s lifestyle and personality. Cortney has also earned success in multi-family communities as well as in the commercial realm – most recently with hotel, restaurant, and storefront projects. Likewise, Cortney’s passion for design has evolved into the development of her own textile line which will launch in early 2019.
This is a community event that is open to the public. The event is $5 and includes drinks and light bites. All proceeds will be donated to Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art at the College of Charleston.
Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and Cortney Bishop will take the stage soon after 6 p.m.
