Accolades for our artists!

Kathryn Riley Parker had three works of paper art accepted into Southern Summer, a juried art show running July 1 - Sept. 27 at Alpharetta Arts Center, Alpharetta, GA. Shown here: Hayden.


Kelley Luikey. Kelley was recently on assignment for South Carolina Wildlife magazine photographing the magnificent migration of the Red Knots who stop on our shores to feast on horseshoe crab eggs on their way to their Arctic breeding grounds. Her stunning shots of the Red Knots accompany an article that educates about these birds and offers conservation tips. Kelley often donates part of her proceeds from the sale of her work to Audubon South Carolina.

Donna Varner’s composite photograph Lowcountry Alchemy has been selected to be part of the second Town Hall Artists' Gallery on Hilton Head. This initiative by the Town of Hilton Head celebrates the contributions that local artists make to community life. The exhibition will be on display from March 1 through September 1, 2019.

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!

Another award for Pluff Mudd: In 2016, local newspaper, the Sun Today, named us "Most Eclectic Gallery".  The prior year, the Sun Today, named us "Best Gallery" in their poll. For two years in a row (2014 and 2013), the Hilton Head Monthly Reader's Choice Awards, named Pluff Mudd as "Favorite Art Gallery in Bluffton". We've also received the Best of Bluffton awards (Bluffton Today, 2012 and 2014) as the "most eclectic gallery"! Can there be a more fun place to shop for art? Visit us next time you're in Bluffton and see why Pluff Mudd is a perennial favorite!
