Visitors to the Society of Bluffton Artist’s Gallery during June and early July will have “No Regrets,” as the paintings of Christy Coffey Chen will be on display in the gallery’s featured artist exhibit from June 6 to July 4.
An opening reception will be held at 5 p.m. June 11 at the gallery, 6 Church St. in Old Town Bluffton.
The exhibition, titled “No Regrets,” showcases Chen’s ability to create beautiful, dreamy moodscapes. An array of the Bluffton artist’s fluid art abstracts, landscapes and seascapes will be on display in this exhibit.
Her techniques have been honed from a lifetime of artistic exploration.
“I grew up in an artistic family. My father was an artist, and my two older sisters as well,” said Chen, who prefers to work in acrylics but isn’t afraid to try new methods. “Art was always being created in our home. Drawing, painting, and even sewing. It just seemed very natural to us.”
Chen has been a professional artist for nearly 30 years, selling her artwork in all 50 states, Canada, Mexico and in Paris. She has lived in Bluffton the past eight years.
“It is a wonderful place to be an artist,” said Chen.
