Old Town Bluffton’s thriving and eclectic art community will host its annual Holiday Gallery Walk on Friday, November 19, from 3 – 8 pm. Wine and refreshments will be served by each gallery. Visitors can also enjoy live music and browse through Old Town’s “walkable” galleries on Boundary, Church, May River and Calhoun Streets throughout the entire event. The event is sponsored by the Old Town Bluffton Merchants’ Society with funding from local A-tax dollars. Hundreds of visitors to the area and local art patrons have traditionally enjoyed this local art experience. The event will showcase Bluffton’s local talent and is a great resource for one-of-a-kind gifts. Wine and refreshments will complete the event on the streets of Old Town. Galleries and shops will be “lit up” for the holidays. The community can show its support for the arts, restaurants and shops in Bluffton by attending this fun event and having a great time! This year is a perfect opportunity to support your community by shopping locally.
