Out of the Blue

Vickie Jourdan was awarded second place in the mixed media category for her painting “Out of the Blue" in the annual Society of Bluffton Artists 2018 Judged Show.

The Story of the Piano

In 2016, Vickie Jourdan contributed her painting skills to the HHSO League’s fundraiser for the Hilton Head International Piano Competition. “PianoPalooza” consisted of six pianos donated to the HHIPC and painted by local artists. The pianos were displayed around town, then were moved March 1 to the Art League of Hilton Head gallery where they were available for bidding at silent auction. A number of our Pluff Mudd partners pooled some funds, bid on, and won Vickie’s piano. It now graces our front porch, delighting many of our customers who sit and play and (sometimes) sing!
