A Blog about Finding Inspiration

"We have a wonderful world to be inspired by and each new day is like an adventure into the unknown, where things that require a second glance can be captured in time on a canvas for anyone to enjoy forever." (Louise Corke)

Artist Date: Ebb and Flow Gallery 5 '10

My Artist Date  for the week was to  visit the
Ebb and Flow Art CO-op and Coffee House

This CO-op gallery is housed in a low country bungalow facing  Hwy. 17 in Murrell's Inlet.  My first reaction when I walked through the door was that I had suddenly been transported to the  Hawaii.   Many of the galleries on the BIG Island are housed in bungalows, and share the same sense of funk and fun that I found in Ebb and Flow.    No snobby pushy salesmen here, or sterile  rooms  with nothing to do but stare at the walls.  Most of the rooms had  comfy chairs, or couches, several had tables that invited you to sit and linger; all were filled with  interesting objects of art.  Twenty-four local artists  and craftsmen are showing  here.  The media includes hand-crafted furniture,  silk art, o pottery and glass art,  jewelry,   traditional paintings on canvas and more.. 

This funky  gallery / coffee house offers an eclectic atmosphere to meet, chat, work and enjoy a great espresso, latte, or cappuccino named after famous artists. On Thursday evenings the place comes alive with folk music. I can't wait to go back.
