The people, landscape, architecture and the culture of the South are the subjects of Lauren Terrett’s upcoming art exhibition entitled, “The Lowcountry is My Home,” which will runs July 1-August 4 at The Society of Bluffton Artists (SoBA) gallery in Old Town Bluffton. An opening reception is slated for 3 p.m. July 7 at the gallery. These events are free and open to the public.
“The Lowcountry is at my doorstep, begging to be put on canvas,” said Terrett, who often can be found painting outside in the sunshine.
Terrett has had the unique opportunity to discover two life passions: science and art. She received a degree in fine arts, and moved on to a rewarding career as a registered nurse.
Now retired, Terrett pursues a passion for painting full-time. Terrett characterizes her work as “fast and furious, bold and colorful, impressionistic style.”
“I often let the painting find its own composition,” she said.
In addition to the SoBA gallery, her paintings are on display at LaPetite Gallerie and The Art League of Hilton Head. For more information, visit http://bit.ly/ColoredCanvas or e-mail LaurenTerrett@gmail.com.
