Don’t miss the South Carolina Artisans Center (334 Wichman St., 843/549-0011, Mon.–Sat. 10 a.m.–6 p.m., Sun. 1–6 p.m., free) in Walterboro, an expansive and vibrant collection of the best work of local and regional painters, sculptors, jewelers, and other craftspeople, for sale and for enjoyment.
Imagine a big-city folk art gallery, except without the pretension, and you get the idea. It’s not on the main drag, but it’s only about a block around the corner, so there’s no excuse not to drop in.
You can find most any genre represented here, from jewelry to watercolors to shawls to photography to sweetgrass baskets. The Artisans Center hosts numerous receptions, and every third Saturday of the month they hold live artist demonstrations from 11 a.m.–3 p.m.
