“Reverie,” oil by Bill Winn

La Petite Gallerie is an intimate Old Town Bluffton shop featuring local art. The work of member artists is always on display, and “featured” shows are seldom held. Instead, artists will be showcased occasionally.

This month the gallery is featuring the multi-talented Bill Winn. Winn’s watercolors, pencil drawings, oils and acrylic paintings depict vignettes of the land, sea, cities and people that he captures as a moment in time.

His work portrays images of the landscape and structures that surround us, sometimes focusing on those which are often overlooked in the hectic pace of today’s world. His art has been shown in galleries across the South.

Winn is a practicing medical illustrator at the top of his field, which has an impact on his talents as a fine artist, giving him an outlet for real creativity and spontaneity that are a delight to the  viewer.

“The world as I see it, both as a medical illustrator and fine artist, has always been a delight in viewing and capturing the world in detail,” Winn said. “This passion has been and remains the underlying source that drives my work. I look for and strive to convey the beauty of the world that surrounds us.”

La Petite Gallerie is located at 56 Calhoun St. in Old Town, next to The Store. For more information, visit lapetitegallerie.com.
