Accolades for our Artists!!
Best in the Lowcountry
We congratulate our artist, Blake Shattuck on receiving the top prize in the local craft category, in LocalLife magazine’s annual Crafted in the Lowcountry awards.
If you haven’t yet seen Blake’s hand-crafted clocks, now is the time. Each clock is a labor of love. Starting with his original design, he painstakingly carves the entire piece by hand with his grandfather’s antique tools, then finishes each piece with a fine patina.

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!Visit the HH International Piano Competition
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!
