Honey Horn Comes Alive with Art
One of the staple annual events on my Hilton Head Island social calendar is fast approaching. The Art Market at Historic Honey Horn, April 28 & 29, displays a variety of juried fine arts and crafts in a setting unlike any gallery I’ve ever seen. Under the draping Spanish moss that flows from the strands of live oaks, among the salt marshes and alongside some of the oldest structures still existing on the Island, artists and craftsmen will compete for prizes.
Among the media on display, you can find something to fit any budget including pieces in clay, wood, fibers, metals, glass, jewelry (my favorite), watercolors, oil, mixed media and photography. Combining artists from all over the United States coming from as far as Connecticut and Wisconsin with some of the best known local artists, Judge Holly Keris, Curator at the Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens, will surely have a difficult time picking the winners.
Make sure not to miss some of the finest arts and crafts on display this year on Hilton Head Island.
