TThe Front Street Art Gallery in Scituate Harbor is pleased to exhibit paintings for the “John F and Janet L Cornacchio: Father and Daughter” show from June 27th to July 16th with a First Friday Reception on Friday, July 7th from 6 to 8:30 PM including music by the Driftway Jazz.


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.


The Scituate Arts Association is very proud to sponsor and support its own gallery on Front Street in Scituate Harbor. Paintings, photographs, sculpture and crafts, created by members, are exhibited and sold. Exhibits featuring members, guest artists and themes are regular events at the gallery.

The Gallery is maintained by its own committee as part of the Scituate Arts Association on a purely volunteer basis. One must be a member of the Scituate Arts Association to ba a member of the Gallery. To become a gallery member, one must submit samples of work for approval and inclusion in the gallery. Gallery member contribute an additional membership fee as well as volunteer a few hours a month, sitting for the gallery.

Throughout the year, special shows and presentations are highlighted. From individual member shows, invited artist guest appearances... to our annual Juried and High School Show, the Sciutate Arts Association gallery is surely worth a visit many times a year. The gallery is a highlight of the Front Street Village with many visitors throughout the year.

We invite you to come down to view the excellent artwork always on display.
