Pluff Mudd Art Gallery was originally formed in April 2002 under the name of A Guild of Bluffton Artists. Local artist Bill Mattox first came up with the idea of a co-op art gallery and approached fellow artists Lynda K. Potter, Jon Nelson and Peggy Duncan with this concept. They all agreed the idea would be a great way to promote local art in “Old Town” Bluffton. To increase the variety of art displayed at the gallery, they decided to invite other Bluffton artists to join them as members of the Guild.Our Bluffton road trip planner makes visiting Pluff Mudd Art and other Bluffton attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
In 2006, after 4 successful years at their original location, A Guild of Bluffton Artists moved across Calhoun Street to their present location. With the move, they expanded their membership to include local artists from Hilton Head and Beaufort and changed their name from A Guild of Bluffton Artists to Pluff Mudd Art.
The name “Pluff Mudd” also known as “plough mud” is the Lowcountry term used to describe the dark, soft soil found at the bottom of the marshes and at the edges of the May River, which is at the end of Calhoun Street. Pluff mud is an essential part of the eco-system of the marsh. Similarly, Pluff Mudd Art is an integral part of the vibe of Old Town Bluffton.
The Pluff Mudd Art is a co-op gallery. It has grown each year and owes its success to the talent, quality artwork and dedication of its members
Pluff Mudd Art Reviews
If you love birds of South Carolina you are NOT allowed to miss this gallery and admiring the stunning photography by Kelley Luikey. She is a master photographer and a true artist! You will have a hard time leaving without a purchase of one of her masterpieces which she also donates a small percentage to Audubon South Carolina
