Hilton Head’s barrier island setting has become a Mecca for visual artists. Painters, sculptors and photographers flock here to take advantage our magical backdrops and our year-around explosion of colors and textures. Nowhere is this more obvious than in a stroll through our local art galleries and studios.
The Arts Center of Coastal Carolina, located at Shelter Cove Harbour, serves as the center of the visual arts scene on the Hilton Head. The state-of-the-art Walter Greer Gallery presents exhibitions throughout the year featuring both local and world-renowned artists specializing in every imaginable discipline from painting to photography to fiber works.
Historic Old Town Bluffton is emerging as an artistic hub. It is worth spending a few pleasant hours strolling the streets and taking in the town’s folksy charm and eclectic collection of galleries.
Daufuskie Island has a thriving artist community. If you are looking for quaint and funky, a guided or self-guided tour of this enchanted sea island is a must.
