Rhody Gem: The Cottage Gallery at Plum Point is a Coastal Grandmother Delight

August 2023

What it is:

An art gallery and shop inside a residential two car garage.


Where to find it:

Set a course for Top Hill Road. A narrow blue and green sign hanging between the two green garage doors on the property confirms you’re at the correct address.


What makes it a Rhody Gem?

A true find, this seasonal gallery/shop in the unspoiled coastal area of Plum Beach is off the grid with no social media pages. Inside her garage, artist Carol Dugan has created an art space, open Saturdays 1-4pm or by appointment, from July to “probably around mid-October. No heat!” says Dugan. A guest artist is featured each month, and works on display and for sale include handmade accessories, and items like upcycled clam and oyster shells, painted furniture that screams “beach cottage!” textile wall hangings, and shelves lined with original oil and watercolor paintings. Don a straw hat, bring cash, and embrace your inner coastal grandmother at this labor of love.
