John Cornacchio: SAA Board member, Gallery Artist and Director Emeritus, John states that being an artist was not a choice, but rather a compulsion. At the age of nine, he found his way to the Art Room at the local Boys Club in Brooklyn, NY and for the rest of his life, he has felt compelled to go to his easel and express his love of nature. A graduate of Pratt Art Institute, John served as an art director and illustrator for publishing organizations, greeting card companies and even Disney. John continued to follow his compulsion to draw and paint, building a lasting career in art. John recently retired as director of the Front Street Gallery where he served for over 10 years. Previously he was a director and a founding member of the Westwood Art Gallery.
Janet Cornacchio: Growing up with two artist parents can be both inspiring and frustrating. Mix in youthful independence and Janet rebelled against her natural artistic inclinations. After graduate school, while working in crafts, fabric painting, and tromp l’oeil designs, the call of “fine arts” could no longer be ignored. Now, having studied with a number of local artists, Mary Lizotte, Mary Beth LoPiccolo, Katherine Smit, and Mary Callahan, Janet’s inherited talent and skills continue to evolve. She paints in vibrant watercolor with a style that is heading towards expressionism with a bit of abstraction. Working in the garden and studying backyard birds have resulted in an innate understanding of flowers and avian visitors reflected in her paintings. Janet has been the president of the Scituate Arts Association (SAA) since 2008. Her works have been exhibited at North River Art, Duxbury Art, Pembroke and Hingham Library’s Clement and Dolphin Gallery, Linden Ponds and Brewed Awakenings. She has received awards from the SAA, Duxbury and North River Arts.
