As part of its mission to provide artists with opportunities to hone their skills and exhibit their works, the Hilton Head Art League presents “minishows” every four weeks at its gallery in the Pineland Station shopping complex. Each of these exhibits features the work of a league member, and each opens with an evening reception. The league sponsors two major art shows annually at the Walter Greer Gallery of the Arts Center of Coastal Carolina. One of the shows is juried, and the event attracts more than 700 entries from throughout the Southeast. The league also presents workshops that attract nationally known artists from throughout the United States (call 800-995-4068 for information). The Hilton Head Art League was started in 1972 by a handful of local artists. There are more than 950 members, 250 of whom are artists.
