Old Town Bluffton in the Gallery Row district.
Gallery hours are 10:00 am - 5:00 pm Monday through Saturday, 11:30 am - 3:00 pm on Sunday.
There is at least one participating artist on duty to assist you during your visit. 
During any particular show approximately 100 original art works will be displayed. 
As art is dynamic the show is changed every four weeks. Out of state visitors are always welcome. 

THE CENTER FOR CREATIVE ARTS:

In addition to the 1,200 square foot gallery, SOBA has created a learning center where SOBA members 
provide professional art tutoring for local school students October through April. 
This is a no-cost program extended to the students and school district.

CONTINUING EDUCATION: 

For adult continuing education in the fine arts field, the Society's outreach program schedules guest speakers who 
specialize in a range of particular art forms. The Society also offers adult classes year round.
