“Great Gullah Art Presentation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

We drove out to the Sea Islands from Beaufort, headed to Hunting Island State Park. This gallery is right on the way. A great stop. We learned a lot about Gullah art and culture here, and our conversation with Elaine was just delightful. Definitely worth a stop if you are in the Beaufort area and interested in the local Gullah culture. It's only about 5 miles or so out from Beaufort.

“Interesting art - local flavor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Varied artists and styles but it would be hard to not find something you liked. Prices range from let's take it home to let me think about that one. Friendly service and many times one of the local artists is on hand to meet and chat.

“A nice authentic low country gallery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

My sisters were visiting our oldest sister that lives on St. Helena Island. We stopped here to kill time due to an accident (very unusual) on the main road. We ended up staying there for hours. The gallery is filled with all forms of art from local artist. The unique art ranges from hand made jewlery aprons and rocking chairs to amazing paintings. The selection is vast making it difficult to remain in budget :-). Prices are reasonable for the quality of the work. What was most attractive for me was that nearly all the work in the gallery was done by local residents, indicative of the creative culture of this area. Also the art included all ethnic/racial goups with much of the art being quite informative. This small Gullah island has an enormous amount of history much of it is presented in the form of art at The Red Piano Too.

“Excellent source for incredible Gullah art and history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2012 via mobile

22 years in business , this gallery is owned by a true afficionado of Gullah art and history. This was a FUN stop. Originals, some by famed Gullah artists, and prints galore. For interesting reading, check out the Gullah Nyew Testament. A translation of the King James Version.
