Pluff Mudd Congratulates HeeJune Shin

Placeholder Picture

HeeJune Shin’s painting, Afternoon Light at Palmetto Bluff, has been juried into the American Impressionist Society Second Annual Associate Member Online Exhibition. Her work was one of 244 selected out of 1710.

If you’ve seen her work at Pluff Mudd, you’ll recall that she paints in oils with a palette knife and considers herself to be a “modern colorist.” Her paintings emphasize the intersection of light and color; they glow with the intensity of the moment.

This exhibition runs through June 30, 2022. You can view the exhibition catalog at this link:

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?
