The McClellanville Arts Council was organized in 1977 by three young women who wanted to bring the fine arts, arts instruction, and cultural activities to the sleepy little fishing village where they had chosen to live.

Tommy Beaver is an award-winning artist, originally from North Carolina who relocated to McClellanville several years ago to pursue his painting passion of the many subjects from the marshes and barrier islands along the coast. Working in a loose impressionist style with broad brush strokes, rich colors and texture using oils on canvas, he captures the emotions, energy and mood of scenes, especially during the twilight of the day. Opening reception Saturday, November 17 at 6:30 p.m., and will remain in gallery through January 8, 2019
