to Gibbes, etc.
Gibbes, etc., an organization of Kiawah Island women, is
dedicated to the support of the Gibbes Museum of Art. It was
founded in 2001 by four women who are experienced volunteers
and fundraisers in the Charleston arts community. Gibbes,
etc. offers its members a series of programs and art tours,
featuring speakers on various topics of current and
community interest. The organization holds two annual
fundraising events to benefit the museum: an evening of
dinners in private Kiawah homes, provided for members and
their guests, and the annual Kiawah Art and House Tour.
Since its inception, Gibbes, Etc. has raised over $1,200,000
for the Gibbes Museum of Art to help support traveling
exhibitions and to fund art education projects in our
community. During the past year, over $100,000 was donated
to the museum to sponsor three exhibitions:
Willard Hirsch: Charleston’s Sculptor
Vibrant Vision: The Collection of Jonathon Green and Richard
Stephen Mueller and Carl Palazzolo:Spoleto Watercolors from
the collection of David and Carol Rawle
We also offer continuing support of Art to Go, an outreach
art education program taught on Johns Island by Gibbes
