Island Beach Birds

Pluff Mudd Art Gallery invites you to a reception on February 9, 2024 from 3 to 7pm to welcome mixed media artist Nancy Patrick Carney as the February Artist of the Month. Nancy’s imaginative original paintings invite us to see the people, places and animals of the South Carolina Lowcountry in a fun and fanciful light.

     With a degree in art from Miami University in Ohio, Nancy has worked as a commercial artist, package designer, product and book illustrator and art teacher to both children and adults.  As a fine art painter, her work has evolved over the years to the whimsical style she is known for today.  A love of art history, a knowledge of the elements and principles of design and composition, and the use of expressive color guide her creative process.

     Since moving to Bluffton in 2016, Nancy’s acrylic and collage paintings have developed a casual, beachy, playful quality that reflects the “Bluffton State of Mind.”  Puffy little beach birds, joyful mermaids, colorful turtles and ladies dancing on the beach are some of her common themes.

     The artist’s reception on February 9 coincides with Old Town Bluffton’s Winter Art Walk.  Many of the galleries and shops in the village will be open from 3 to 7. Come meet Nancy Carney at Pluff Mudd and enter a drawing to win her original 8” x 8” painting of “Island Beach Birds.”

     Pluff Mudd Art Gallery is open 7 days a week from 11 am to 5 pm.  It is located at 27 Calhoun Street, Bluffton.  For more information, see our website at or call 843-757-5590.
