Enjoy Local Artwork, Gullah Culture, and Cuisine at “Art & Oysters!”
On Thursday, March 23rd, from 6:00 to 9:00 pm, Pin Point Heritage Museum will host its annual “Art & Oysters,” a coastal-themed
fundraising event featuring a silent auction of original artwork presented by local artists. Guests are invited to meet and greet with the participating artists and enjoy an evening on the Moon River marsh. Proceeds from the auction will support educational programs and operations at Pin Point Heritage Museum.
“We are thrilled to bring this event back after a three-year hiatus,” said Nora Fleming Lee, CEO of Coastal Heritage Society. “Art and Oysters is a wonderful event to celebrate community artists, share the stories, culture, language, and lifeways of the Gullah-Geechee community, and support Pin Point Heritage Museum!”
Event tickets will include Lowcountry fare and an oyster roast by a local Gullah catering company, A Taste of Heaven, and a cash bar will be available. To hear more about the participating artists, please follow their social media accounts on Instagram and Facebook.

Spend Veterans Day with Mermaid Cottages and take time to pay tribute to some of the greatest heroes in our communities. Veterans Day, observed annually on November 11, is a tribute to military veterans who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces. It’s also a time when each of us should thank people for risking their lives to defend America and reflect on the importance of peace. We should also use our influence to draw attention to the challenges facing many veterans. By understanding these challenges, we can all reach out and make sure veterans have the best possible chance of having a healthy and fulfilling life after their service. Our Mermaid Cottages Fall Special is in effect through November 21, 2022, so invite veterans in your family and in your circle of friends for a long weekend getaway to Tybee Island and Mermaid Cottages with 20% off our nightly rates. Be our guests in our homes for the holidays.
