About LyBensons Gallery and Studio



The Ly Benson Gallery is a Beaufort destination point that you don't want to miss. It's just the right size and filled with the perfect type of art to occupy attention for an hour or more. He has a wonderful collection of the most beautiful Gullah Sweetgrass Baskets, too!. The owner and operator of this Art Gallery, Rev. Ken Hodges, is a charming former S.C. State Representative.  While traveling throughout his term, he purchased art from all over the world. The Gallery also accepts art from locals, both to buy and display. You will give praises for this highlight spot in Beaufort.


There are several rooms full of original art, paintings, photographs, and sculptures. The art is original, stunning, and there is a huge variety from both Africa and from local artists. It is real treat.
