My daughter attended a weekly summer camp at the Island Art Association and really enjoyed it. The building it is in has a beautiful mosaic on the outside and works from various artists for sale inside. Check it out.

A friend and I stopped here after breakfast., Reviewing a gallery is difficult because it is a matter of one's personal taste.. This gallery is small and has a bit of everything so it s worth the stop There is art work for the walls, metal sculpture that was reasonably priced and interesting (not addressing of course the shipping) and...

The building itself "draws" you in with its interesting tile mosaic works on the facade. Located just behind Pablo's, it's a great place to wander into and look at (and buy) works by local artists. Paintings, sculptures, and glass works are among the pieces to enjoy.

It was a little hit and miss, and while there was interesting art on display, majority of the pieces were kind of tired or nothing to write home about. Nonetheless, it was good to see what local artists were up to.

You will be amazed of the art work you find here. The creativity that it took to make or paint. No matter what the subject is. The colors the brites the play on light. You never know who you will see there as well.

A quick visit to view the works of local artisans might turn into an hour of lingering! All forms of artwork are available from jewelry to large oils and everything in between. The outside decor is worth a trip down the side street! Bring your broken pottery and glass shards and contribute to the walls!

This place holds a quintessentially small southern town appeal. It is relatively small but lots of fun. The surrounding wall and gate are decorated with a mosaic made from discarded glass, metal and porcelain and is one of the beaches most photographed spots. The inside is easy to navigate and walls and shelves nicely display art, photos, pottery and jewelry... More
