Smith Galleries Features Barry Honowitz Watercolors

Smith Galleries is pleased to announce that it now features the largest selection of art by watercolor artist Barry Honowitz either in gallery or online. See a slide show here of pieces currently available.

Barry was a good neighbor of Smith Galleries for several years at The Village at Wexford before he closed his gallery in the spring of 2009.

In 1987 Barry Honowitz moved from Southern California to Hilton Head Island to further his love for watercolor painting. Barry’s work hangs in many corporate as well as private collections throughout the country. Barry is a graduate of the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. His background in design and advertising can be seen in paintings and promotional lithographs. He has more than 35 nationally published watercolors with images ranging from waterfowl to Harbour Town lighthouse on Hilton Head.

Smith Galleries would be glad to help you with any of your needs pertaining to Barry's work. Email

Smith Galleries Features Nicole Golden of Pea Soup

Smith Galleries has just received our first selection of the fabulous felt ornaments by Nicole Golden. We fell in love with them the moment we saw them. See them all here.

A life-long artist and maker of things, Nicole Golden created her hand-sewn goods company, Pea Soup, in 2004. Pea Soup is a little studio of bugs and elves and blossoms and fairies. All of these goodies are made with wool felt, tiny stitches and Nicole's two hands. She chooses to needlecraft with felt because she loves the way it translates her ideas and she loves the combinations of colors and textures. She strives to make her work “accessible” to everyone – young and old, lovers of art, admirers of good craftsmanship and those that just fall in love with a particular design or feeling of a piece.

Her goal is to make beautiful, unique art that brings joy to those who buy it and wear it - whether it’s a gift for a friend or something special for themselves. Folk art is a special part of our history and culture and making these small creations for everyday enjoyment is a lovely way to keep it alive.

Drop by Smith Galleries to see the entire selection or give us a call at 800.272.3870. Gallery hours are 10-6 Monday through Saturday.
