“Gullible” by Lauren Terrett

La Petite Gallerie is an intimate Old Town Bluffton shop featuring local art. The work of member artists is always on display, and “featured” shows are seldom held. Instead, artists will be showcased occasionally.

First up is Lauren Terrett, a painter with a wonderful impressionistic style, glorious palette of color, and free flowing brush strokes. She will often let the painting find its own composition, with the texture of the paint itself contributing to the overall harmony and rhythm of the piece.

Early on, Terrett discovered two passions in her life. While her left brain loved science, her right brain wanted to create. She received her degree in Fine Arts, but then moved on to a rewarding career as a registered nurse. Now retired, she pursues her love of painting full time.

These days, the Lowcountry is at her door step, begging to be put on canvas. She might be found painting in the sunshine, with the light reflecting off the marsh, or in her home studio. The people, landscape, architecture and culture of the south are her favorite subjects.

Her paintings have found homes locally in Palmetto Bluff, Colleton River, Berkeley Hall, Rose Hill, Sea Pines, and Hilton Head Plantation, as well as throughout the United States.

Terrett is eager to greet guests every Thursday at La Petite Gallerie. She also shows at The Art League of Hilton Head and The Society of Bluffton Artists. She welcomes inquiries for commissions and private or semi private lessons.

La Petite Gallerie is located at 56 Calhoun St. in Old Town, next to The Store. For more information, visit lapetitegallerie.com.
