Learn More About Our Art Gallery
The Red Piano Too Gallery is located in a 2,400 sq. foot building which was originally built around 1940. The structure was renovated in 1999. African-American landowners and farmers founded the co-operative after studying land use and agricultural techniques at Penn School. Penn School was the only school for freed former slaves that survived reconstruction. These island leaders from Penn School traveled to Nova Scotia, Canada where they learned about agricultural co-operatives from Canadian farmers. The purpose of the co-operative was to provide a market for the Island's agricultural products, and to provide, at a reasonable price, materials, and supplies to area farmers. It was the first agricultural co-operative of its kind in South Carolina.
