The 2017 Showcase featured locally made sweetgrass baskets, paintings and photography.

Local artists, crafters and creators will exhibit their wares on Kiawah Island this fall at the Lowcountry Art and Artisan Showcase. This semiannual event, which is hosted by the Kiawah Island Community Association (KICA), takes places at The Sandcastle on Friday, Nov. 16 from 4-7 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 17 from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

“The Lowcountry is home to some amazingly artistic individuals,” said event organizer and KICA assistant director of Recreation, Amy Cook.

“The showcase is a great opportunity to support many of these local artists and artisans all in one place.” The showcase and sale will feature a wide selection of original paintings and photographs, as well as handcrafted pottery, jewelry and home decorations. The first day of the event (Nov. 16) will include a beer and wine bar along with light hors d’oeuvres.

 “The event is free and open to the public,” said Cook. “So whether you live on Kiawah or elsewhere, we hope you’ll come out and support our local artists.”

The Sandcastle is located at 1 Shipwatch Rd. on Kiawah Island. For more information or questions on this event, contact the Sandcastle at 843.768.3875 or For details on this and other upcoming island events, visit
