This art gallery was a welcome stop during our hot vacation. The artwork is lovely and depicts much of the local area by varying artists. The prices were not bad either.

Bowls, deviled egg plates, notecards, paintings, figurines-quite a variety of approaches to art. Nice volunteers staffing the desk. Cute turtle sculpture for $12 to gorgeous abstract acrylic art for several hundred. We spent 30 or 45 minutes here. Neat place.

Friendly staff and eclectic collection (all for sale) made this a pleasant stop during my recent trip to Southport. I purchased a small print but also enjoyed the larger original paintings, the pottery and jewelry on display.

We had never been to the gallery on several trips to Southport and the gallery was a great surprise. They have a large selection of art and all of it looked great. We will be going back on future trips to Southport.
