Precarious Pipers

La Petite Gallerie, the intimate Old Town Bluffton shop featuring local art, would love to introduce our gallery artists to newcomers to our area, and reintroduce them to our old friends.

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, Lauren 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 doorstep, begging to be put on canvas. You

may find her painting in the sunshine 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 throughout the United States. You may have noticed Lauren’s painting ‘Boy Casting His Net,’ recently featured on the 2023 Bluffton MayFest poster.

Lauren is eager to greet you every Saturday at La Petite Gallerie. She also shows at the SOBA Gallery in Bluffton. She welcomes inquiries for commissions and private or semi private lessons.

La Petite Gallerie is located at 56 Calhoun Street, Bluffton.
