Gullah Celebration: Exhibit of The Great Migration

If you are looking for a reason to head to Hilton Head Island, you should definitely make the Annual Gullah Celebration that reason. This annual festival held all month long during the month of February is full of curated events highlighting Gullah culture with a focus on food, arts, history and more. Today we are highlighting one of my favorite topics, Gullah art. One of the best parts of the Gullah Celebration is their Winter Exhibition. This year’s exhibit focuses on the story of the Great Migration and features a number of artists in various mediums from original canvas pieces to traditional sweetgrass baskets. We are giving you a sneak peek of the exhibit below and encourage you to take a weekend trip this year and many more years to come!

We can envision these pieces in a ladies lounge or as the anchor of a Black Southern Belle bedroom. A great gift for a mom to give a daughter as well.

Michiel Perry

Michiel is a Black Southern Belle living a lowcountry life. I love all things fashion, home decor and southern! When I am not running around doing fun stuff for Black Southern Belle, I live in antique stores and have a minor obsession with historic homes 🙂
