Alkyon Arts and Antiques is Charleston's premier center for the fine arts. It is a veritable museum, filled with marbles, bronzes, paintings, clocks, ceramics, mirrors, and other decorative pieces.
Alkyon is the Greek root of Halcyon, meaning calm; prosperous; serene; affluent. The Alkyon (more commonly known as the Kingfisher) bird was a symbol of prosperity and success in ancient Greece; it bred on the water during the winter solstice in a floating nest, and was reputed to have a mystical power of charming wind and waves to calmness.
Alkyon was founded in 2001 by Frederic S. Le Clercq, professor of law emeritus at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. Professor Le Clercq is a lifelong passionate collector of fine art and antiques.
