‘Miss Jean II’ by Bill Winn

La Petite Gallerie in old town Bluffton is home to six of the area’s favorite painters and a talented sculptor. This special collection of art is an ever-changing work in progress, with many pieces spilling out into the adjacent garden.

This month, a couple of the gallery’s artists have been celebrated by the Lowcountry arts community.

For starters, the talent of Bill Winn was recognized yet again. He is the Second Place Oil prize winner at the 27th Annual SOBA Show for his painting Reverie. You can see his piece and the rest of the stunning show through July at the SOBA Gallery right down the street from La Petite Gallerie.

Kristin Griffis opened her Featured Art Show at the Art League of Hilton Head with a wonderful reception on July 14. Her show will also be on display through July at the Art League.
