Howe Outrageous is a must-see for tourists and townies alike. Beautiful local art of all kinds. And some artisans provide fun classes to share their talents with those interested in learning a new craft. Be sure to stop by during the monthly Friday Gallery Walk and enjoy the art, the food and wine, and the the great music by local... More

Lots of unique artists - reclaimed wood and metal, sea glass, cloth, pottery, and paintings. Great selection of photography, too. Best place to buy a souvenir you'll treasure forever.

I went to visit Southport this past March and had to stop by Howe Outrageous! Even the outside of the gallery was warm and inviting. The art selection inside was great with all different price range and something for everyone! I wasn't able to take a class during my visit, but I have heard great things. The owner, Kim, is...

This shop is on the main street that runs through Southport. I stopped in while checking out it's neighboring stores, it's worth a visit! There are different handmade items for sale here from different artists. I purchased 2 handmade mugs that say Southport on them, gave one as a gift and it was excitedly received!

This is the third class I have gone to and love it. Great for all ages. I took an 11 year old for her birthday and she painted a dog. She was thrilled, and so was I. Thank you Kimberly and see you at the next class.

Just took the class yesterday. Two hours of fun for this right brained gal and I had a finished painting! Instructor led, small classes, reasonable fee, very relaxed atmosphere--best way to get started if you want to paint. I plan to take another in the near future. FS

It continually showcases new items or collections from different artists & crafters--paintings, prints, photographs, pottery, jewelry, and a multitude of unusual creations that are variously imaginative, beautiful, whimsical, and delightful to behold. A very exciting feature of this gallery is its... More
