Born in Boston, Greg received his BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and upon graduating, traveled to Italy with plans to continue his education. He spent the next 12 years studying and then teaching at the Charles H. Cecil Studios in Florence. Greg recently moved back to the States and now lives in New York City although he pays frequent visits to Boston and mid-coast Maine -- even in the winter! Greg's painting subject matter is diverse, but his first love is the human figure and narrative.
"The subjects vary, but the vehicle is always light. The Italian word chiaroscuro literally means 'light-dark.' Light renders the world visible to the eye; darkness renders it captive to the imagination."

We originally had the pleasure of working with Kelly last April when she was an invitational artist in our Back to Back Exhibition and are excited to announce that she is now a full time addition to the gallery! She studied at the Massachusetts College of Art where she developed a strong love of the figure and continued her education ofter graduating by taking workshops and classes to further investigate her love of the Old Masters. Soon after, she went on to study at the prestigious Art Students League in New York where she received a merit scholarship. Her work has received awards and recognition from numerous associations and publications including the Massachusetts Cultural Council, Art Renewal Center, Studio Visit Magazine, Artist Magazine, and the Cambridge Art Association. Kelly paints in a beautiful studio in the old Waltham Mill buildings along the Charles River.
