Rose Cofield with one of her mixed media abstract creations.

La Petite Gallerie, an intimate Old Town Bluffton shop featuring local art, continues to introduce you to the gallery artists.

This month the gallery is featuring abstract artist Rose Cofield. Art has been a life-long adventure for her. Her passion for exploring the possibilities of form and shape has been her prime motivation throughout her journey.

Challenging herself with different materials has taught Cofield to bend to the inherent attributes as well as the limitations of her chosen medium. Her abstract works in mixed media include collage, acrylic paints, mixed media, canvas and found materials.

Cofield’s fascination with architecture is evident in her current work. Her experience in sculpture allows her to see the content of her mixed media pieces as form and shape. Born in Brooklyn, N.Y., Cofield credits some of her images to that urban environment.

Cofield studied art at New York University and The Johnson Atelier Technical Institute of Sculpture. She has attended stone carving workshops at the Corsanini Studio in Carrara, Italy.

Cofield has been on the other side of instruction, as she has taught sculpture workshops in schools and arts organizations through the South Carolina Arts Commission’s “Artist in Education” program.

Cofield has displayed her work at galleries and museums across the region, and is a member of the National Association of Women Artists of New York City, as well as the South Carolina Chapter.

In addition to La Petite Gallerie, Cofield’s work is available on her website,, and on Instagram @cofieldrose. She can be reached directly at or 843-290-6842.

La Petite Gallerie is located in Old Town Bluffton at 56 Calhoun St. Hours are 11 am to 5 pm Tuesday through Saturday, and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday and Monday. For more information please visit
