The Front Street Art Gallery in Scituate Harbor is pleased to host an invitational show, “Coastal Colors: Paintings by Anne Belson and Julie Blanchard” from May 3rd to May 28th with a First Friday Reception on the same night the Scituate Cultural District celebrates Artwalk in the Harbor, Friday, May 5th from 6 to 8:30 PM including music by the Driftway Jazz.


Anne Belson: Compelling elements in faces, natural forms and the changing landscape inspire Anne’s watercolors. Her marks and color choices vary with the atmospheric conditions or her feelings about the subject. Most pieces are begun “en plein air” and completed in her East Falmouth studio. The finish work involves more thinking than painting through the addition of a few brush strokes or a complete transformation, as she seeks to maximize each work's uniqueness.

A graduate of Emmanuel College with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, Anne holds a Master of Education degree from Boston State College. She studied design and painting at Boston University School for the Arts and Massachusetts College of Art. A juried Gallery Artist at South Shore Art Center in Cohasset and the Cape Cod Art Association, her work has been included in several national exhibitions. She is a Signature Membership in the New England Watercolor, Pennsylvania Watercolor, and Rhode Island Watercolor Societies. She is a member of the National League of American Pen Women and is a Director of New England Watercolor Society.

Julie Blanchard: Working in watercolor on the spot, outdoors, in every kind of weather became a regular part of Julie’s schedule. Using strong color and a variety of techniques to capture the mood and feeling of the day, Blanchard allows nature to take a hand in the completed work. A graduate of Emmanuel College with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, Julie received an MAT in Fine arts from Assumption College in Worcester. Julie, a juried Master artist of the Cape Cod Art Association, an artist member of the Creative Art Center in Chatham, the Cultural Center of Cape Cod, a Signature Member of the New England Watercolor Society and Associate Member of the National Watercolor Society, currently teaches adult courses in oil painting, watercolor, portraiture and drawing at the Cape Cod Art Association in Barnstable and watercolor at the Creative Art Center in-Chatham.sored by Business Patrons-Janet Cornacchio, Jack Conway, Scituate and Business Sponsors-- Coastal Heritage Bank and Frame Center of Hanover.
