Mary Hudson Gillis
August Artist of the Month
As a child, I was always drawing and painting. I took art
lessons with my brother when I was 8.
I went onto Massachusetts College of Art and Design earning my
Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.
I’ve shown in Boston at Mass. College of Art and Design, Boston
City Hall Scollay Square Gallery and the Meridien Hotel Gallery.
As well as Dedham library, Dedham Community Theatre - through the
Dedham Artist Guild.
I joined the Dedham Art Association in 1994 and now that my three
children are grown I am finding more time to devote to my painting! I am
interested in an impressionistic depiction of landscape, still life and the
figure and my response to the emotion of time and place. Certain colors, shapes
and light have appeal to me and I strive to imbue those in my artwork.
