This is How We Celebrate
Our support for the artists of the Lowcountry has a distinctly local intent. As local businesses ourselves, The Shops at Sea Pines Center thrive in part from the energy, creativity, and power of attraction that the Lowcountry arts scene provides. Giving back is in our nature.
Beginning with the Artists of Sea Pines, whose home gallery is right here among The Shops at Sea Pines Center, we seized the opportunity to spread that support beyond, and to include local artists from all around the area.
Together with popular musical artists and entertainers, they present a lovely opportunity to usher in the evening, as spring approaches, from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on March 4 – and on each First Thursday beyond. See the exhibits, talk with the artists, and relax in the lovely plaza of The Shops at Sea Pines Center, while you enjoy special merchant offers, live music, complimentary wine samples, specials, giveaways, and more.
This is Why We Celebrate
“Shopping local is so important,” said Andrea Bragg of Forsythe Jewelers, a cornerstone among The Shops at Sea Pines Center. “We are your neighbors, we shop in your shops, we eat in your restaurants, so please come support local business and local artists.”
“Seeing the pleasure that art can bring to people, we are excited to have a setting that adds to it,” said Hilton Head painter Pam White, who coordinates the artists for the monthly exhibit. “The trees and fountain and flowers of our plaza here in The Shops at Sea Pines Center offered us a ready-made oasis where folks can relax and enjoy the art, and even to talk it over with the artists.”
“Many artists came here as visitors, and decided to make this their home,” Pam said. “In a lot of cases, the chance to discover the artist within them came from their move to the Lowcountry.”
Join us to enjoy, to support, and to celebrate the local art inspired by our lovely Lowcountry. This is how we celebrate First Thursdays at the Shops at Sea Pines Center.
