Smith Galleries on Hilton Head features the Prayer Towers of Holden McCurry

Smith Galleries is pleased to exhibit the Prayer Towers of Carolina clay artist Holden McCurry.

Holden writes..."I began making clay towers and shrines in the spring of 2011 after a trip to Mexico. Inspiration came from the colorful and creative forms found in the local artwork and architecture. Soon, my work evolved and I started making Prayer Towers."

The towers come in three sizes and each includes a hollow opening in the tower with a slip of paper to write a prayer, thought, wish or dream for someone you care about and then gift them with the tower and you special thought.

The towers are thoughtful gifts for weddings, anniversaries, graduations, valentines, birthdays, get well soon, thinking of you and they are a great way for a guy to propose!

Smith Galleries is located on Hilton Head Island in South Carolina and features the work of many artists making jewelry, kaleidoscopes, fine woodworking, paintings, art glass, and much more. Gallery hours are 10-6 Monday through Saturday. Be sure to like us on Facebook and sign up for our newsletter.

Soleri Windbells at Smith Galleries

Soleri windbells have been a favorite at Smith Galleries since the day the gallery opened in 1988. Designed by world famous architect, Paolo Soleri, and cast in bronze, they will ring and give pleasure for generations.

The bells are only a part of the story...the funds from the sell of the bells are used to support the building of Arcosanti, an experimental city designed by Soleri in the Arizona dessert. Click here to see a slide show of the bells and here to see a slide show about Arcosanti.

Please go to our website to order Soleri bells or visit Smith Galleries located on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina to order. Gallery hours are 10 to 6 Monday through Saturday. 800.272.3870.
