We are lucky to have a thriving arts community here in Savannah. Along with the Savannah College of Art and the Savannah Museum of Art, we have and countless other galleries and performance spaces. The upcoming Tybee Arts Association show and sale is a great way to see (and purchase) local art in a lovely seaside setting.
