The Gallery at First Parish Church

Dilla GOOCH Tingley

At the First Parish Art Gallery - January 20, 2007 - March 08, 2007

Combine a creative temperament, an obsessive-compulsive personality and a fixation with fabric and you have GOOCH. She has been creating the fabric wall-hangings that hang in collections throughout the country since 1988. Windows and chairs, dragons and most recently, familiar artistic images have appeared in her work.

About the Mary Jo Rines Gallery At First Parish

The Gallery At First Parish opened September 17, 2000.

On September 13, 2011, the Standing Committee voted to name the Gallery in honor of its founder,
Mary Jo Rines, who died on September 4, 2011. A special exhibit of Mary Jo’s work was on display
in the Gallery from September 20 – September 30, 2011.

Its purpose, as described by the founders:

The mission of The Gallery At First Parish is to add another dimension
to the spiritual fabric of our lives by exhibiting the work of visual artists
who seek to contribute to a deeper understanding of the human condition.

The Gallery is intended to be a service to the parish, the artist and the wider community.

It is open to the public without charge 9 AM – 4 PM weekdays, and 9 AM – 12:30 PM Sundays.
Interested parties may also call the Church Office (781-893-7798) for other possible viewing times.

Exhibits are listed in the First Parish Event Calendar.
