We were staying across the street at the South Beach Resort and decided to stop in. I was expecting to see local artists work, but was blown away by an expansive and impressive traveling exhibit (the work of Binh Pho). The exhibits were beautiful and thought provoking. You can easily spend a couple of hours here. Upstairs exhibits were being... More

Very beautiful and challenging artist choices. Gorgeous beachside dining room/gallery. Staff is helpful and welcoming. You can explore a few hours, get away from the crowds and into a calm elegant space with other art lovers. Lurve this place!!!

This great little museum is free and had a very interesting exhibit of Binh Pho's work. I was unfamiliar with his art, but really enjoyed the exhibit. After leaving I researched his art online- which is a good outcome for a museum visitor! The museum is next to a large resort, not where you would expect to find it. Limited... More

Small art museum, but has a lot to offer. A great alternative to the beach, especially in the off season.

We were priveledged to view the collection of carvings and mixed media artist Binh Pho and his Shadow of the Turning exhibit. It was extraordinary! The Dixie Dugan exhibit was equally amazing in its scope--fascinating to see... More

This lovely free museum is housed in a 1920s house that was moved to this location. It has been modernized with an elevator, art studios, inviting tea porch and a number of galleries presently showing work of 3 artists. One local artist, Dixie Dugan is local and has works showing old Myrtle Beach and gullah women. A nice place to... More

This is a great little local Art Museum with lots of treats. The first time I went was to hear a speaker who was very friendly with Marc Chagall. Very interesting. I even made new friends there. The most recent visit was for a docent tour of their Ansel Adams Exhibit. I lived in Santa Fe and Albuquerque, New Mexico... More
