The Starving Artists Market is an open air art market featuring all original art. Local artists offer their paintings, drawings, jewelry, photographs, scarves, sea shell Art and other creations for sale direct to the public. The Market is moving to 1503 Paris Ave in Port Royal, next door to Weichert Realtors, starting Saturday, September 26, 2015. Hours will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will be open every Saturday weather permitting.
The Market spent the summer on St. Helena Island setting up their displays in the parking lot of the Boondocks Restaurant. The move to Port Royal is seen as an opportunity to enhance the growing reputation of Port Royal as an eating and shopping destination. The Market creates a festive and casual experience in which to enjoy great art in a fun community. There are weekly art demonstrations and of course the ever popular Market T-Shirt is available for purchase. Stores and restaurants are within walking distance and strolling around the beautiful and eclectic Port Royal is always fun. Any local fine artist who wishes to participate should call, Jim Torcum, at 843-592-4285 for more information.
