Love to stop in and chat with Sandy and pick up some unique pieces for our home as well as a few Christmas presents. Sandy winters in her home in New Jersey, but stays in this house / studio from late spring through early November. As one of her prints says "I wasn't born on Topsail Island, but I got... More

Nice variety of different items available: jewelry, shells, pottery, paintings, and photographs. We bought one painting from the artist, and another piece she was selling for someone else. Prices were reasonable, cash, check, or credit cards were accepted. We would go again.

We stopped in here to check out the paintings and whatever else they were offering and came to find it was very charming, with an owner who was so warm and friendly as well. She is also a painter herself and many of her creations are on display and for sale. I purchased a small handmade pearl ring, which I... More

Great place to buy a painting from a very talented local artist. She also has several handmade items from several other artists. Well worth some time for shopping!

Such a nice gallery to visit. Sandy, the resident artist we spoke to, introduced us to the gallery and was very interesting to speak with. We bought a buoy (which we collect) and she signed it for us and drew a seagull on it which made it very special.

The gallery is wonderful and Sandy is a delight! She loves art and the island and it shows! She gave us local tips on where to eat and what to do on Topsail Island. Her art and jewelry are AMAZING!!! A great visit!

Loved it! It was a new to me find this year! They have watercolors and jewelry and crockery/ ceramic wares and other such artsy items. I got a sand dollar with a painted beach scene on it for my mother while there and some sea-glass earrings for myself. The selection is definitely beach-themed and, like most artist's places, somewhat haphazard... More

This art gallery is the real deal. Everything from jewelry made of sea glass to water color paintings of scenes from the island and much more are hand crafted by local artists. The prices are affordable and the owner/artist is on site most days, usually painting, and available to answer questions or just chat about the Island. You will surely... More
