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. For Rose, art has been a life-long adventure. 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 Rose 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.
Rose’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, NY, Rose credits some of her images to that urban environment.
Rose 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. Rose has taught sculpture workshops in schools and arts organizations through the South Carolina Arts Commission’s “Artist in Education” program.
Rose has displayed her work at galleries and museums across the region, and is a member of the National Association of Women Artists, New York, New York, as well as the South Carolina Chapter. In addition to La Petite Gallerie you can see Rose’s work at her web site art-rose-cofield.com and on Instagram @cofieldrose. She can be reached directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or 843-290-6842.
