John Hietala, one of the Gallery artists, is also a juried artist at the Russell Gallery of Plymouth, MA. He studied art at the New England School of Art in Boston and has taken many workshops, classes, and seminars from instructors both locally and nationally known. His instructors include Joanne Papendrea, Andrew Kusmin, Andy Everson, Tony Visco, and Chen-Khee Chee. John enjoys the challenge of conveying the beauty of God’s creations to the viewer of his paintings. John’s primary medium is watercolor and he constantly strives to improve as a painter, always trying to reach the next plateau.
TedNystrom, who has been painting for over forty years, chooses to capture nature, seascapes and the New England countryside in either oil or watercolor. He studied with Marshall Joyce of Kingston, MA and has attended workshops with a variety of artists. His creativeness often comes from his travels to Spain, Portugal and Italy with painting groups. But his real inspiration came when he was working and studying in Paris, France in 1956. What little free time he had, he spent watching French artists painting in “Place du Tertre" in Montmartre, near where he lived in Pigalle. He is a member of the Copley Society of Boston, a signature and life member of the Rhode Island Watercolor Society, and a fifteen year member of the Scituate Arts Association.

Summer Gallery hours are Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday 11-5PM, Thursday and Friday 1-8PM (open evenings) and Sunday Noon-5PM. The Gallery is closed Monday.
