Hussey’s Paintings on Display
The Harrison Gallery will present a solo show of watercolors by Peter Hussey. The show will be on display through Tuesday, September 30. After 17 years as a corporate fundraiser, Hussey traded his gray flannel suit for an easel and became a full time watercolor artist. He succeeded in his new craft by painting the things he knew and liked – the architectural details of old New England buildings. As a frustrated architect, he found his inspiration in the doorways, stairways, cupolas, rooftops, widows’ watches and gables on homes along the Rhode Island coast. Although his work is realistic, the objects in his paintings create abstract patterns that in themselves make complete and forceful compositions.
The Harrison Gallery is located at 39 Spring Street in Williamstown, Mass. For further information, call 413- 458-1700 or visit theharrisongallery.com.
