One of the cornerstones of a great community is its ability to support the arts. Without arts, we are missing a critical part of the human spirit. Arts connect us to the world, helps our children dream, connects us to the community, strengthen relationships, create conversations, and gives life to stories that should never be forgotten. Below you’ll find information on SOBA and art galleries in Bluffton, SC.
SOBA Society of Bluffton Artists was established in the spring of 1994 by seven local artists who all had a common vision. Promoting a stimulating community environment for the visual arts and assist area students and artists in enhancing their artistic abilities.
