January 4, through January 28, 2018

The Front Street Art Gallery artists have created images that are definitely “out of the box.” This January show has paintings on different papers such as Yupo; collages that use all types of materials; abstract paintings that will stretch the mind; and photos that will have a different take on the world. Come to the Gallery and forget the cold dark days of January as you walk through a new world of art! The show will run from January 4th to January 28th at the Front Street Art Gallery in Scituate Harbor.

James Burke, who joined the Gallery in 2017, has always had a strong desire to be a painter. Some of his earliest memories are of sitting on his mother’s lap flipping through books dealing with Cezanne and Matisse. Jim studied painting and printmaking at Virginia Commonwealth University. Painting was put on hold to support his family. Through a long string of events and hard work, he started a design firm which enabled him to keep his hand in the arts. He sold that company recently so that he could focus on painting.

Edward Mikenas, one of the Gallery Artist, is a watercolorist and has been painting since he was ten years old. As an art major in South Boston High School, Ed attended after school classes at the Museum of Fine Arts (MFA) in Boston. When he graduated high school, he continued his studies at the MFA under a two year study grant. He also studied at the Famous Artists School in Connecticut, L'Ecole de Beaux Art for two years as well as the Worcester Museum of Fine Artsf a kind painting. Come in pick up note cards made from sections of the paintings as well.


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.
