The Art Market at Historic Honey Horn, a juried fine art and craft festival is scheduled for April 24-25 on the grounds of the historic site.
Eighty accomplished artists from the region and from across the country will be on site for the 19th annual market. Patrons may stroll through artists’ booth under historic live oaks to peruse and purchase original fine art and craft in all shapes, sizes, styles, price ranges, and media.
In addition to selling their original works, artists will also be competing for $5,000 in prizes.
This year’s Art Market will have works in the following media onsite: Oil, acrylic, watercolor, mixed media 2-D & 3-D, sculpture, photography, pastel, ceramics, wood, fiber arts, glass, metal, and jewelry.
Also featured at this year’s event is the annual Herb Society of Hilton Head sale. Herb plants, French Market Soup Mix, curry, jellies, dill horseradish mix and many new products will be featured. The sale will be on Saturday only from 10 a.m. until sold out.
Rain or shine, the outdoor show is open to the public Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. There is a $5 per person admission charge.
Timed tickets are available online at coastaldiscovery.org, as there is a limited hourly capacity this year. Vendors and attendees are required to wear masks, and social distancing will be enforced.
Food and beverages will be available from Mellie Mel’s, a favorite local caterer, and OddBirds, providing coffee and bakes.
While onsite, guests are invited to explore Coastal Discovery Museum and the beautiful grounds. Nestled within the arms of Jarvis Creek lies a 68-acre parcel of land which has been known as Honey Horn Plantation for more than two centuries. It is the largest parcel of open land on Hilton Head Island and one of the last places where you can envision what the island was like before development.
Here you will find the oldest homes on the island, magnificent live oaks and ancient cedars, beautiful wide-open fields that harken back to the days when this was a quiet agrarian community. Experience what the island was once, is now, and hopefully will be in the future. The Discovery House at the Coastal Discovery Museum is open daily from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
