A Signature Member of the New England Watercolor Society, Dawn Scaltreto enjoys the challenge of capturing interesting and complex textures in watercolor and oil. Her new works feature many still life arrangements of favorite objects. "I want to capture the light and shadow of my arrangements the way the Renaissance Masters did, but with a contemporary edge. When I am most in the zone, I feel exhilarated when I am able to honestly capture my subject and have my viewers see the still life as though through my eyes," she says from her Watertown studio.

Dawn Evans Scaltreto presents a selection of new works in watercolor and oil in her latest exhibit, Keeping Still. The exhibit is in The Gallery at The First Parish Church in Weston from January 29 through March 10, 2011 and features the contemporary realism of the artist.

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.
