Owner description: Don Gorvett produces his memorable woodcut prints in his Studio and Gallery in downtown Portsmouth, NH. He is a graduate of the School of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and a past board member of the Boston Printmakers. Work can also be found at the Addison Gallery of American Art, Phillips Academy, Andover, MA., Boston Athenaeum, Currier Museum of Art, Manchester, NH., Farnsworth Art Museum, Rockport, ME., Peabody Essex Museum, Salem, MA., Museum of Fine Art, Boston, MA., Worcester Art Museum, Worcester, MA., Smith College Museum of Art, Northampton, MA. Ogunquit Museum of American Art as well as other public and private collection. Artist Statement "These woodcuts express the abstract geometric shapes and distant configurations of our architecture in the Northeast. Upon the sea waters of estuaries and harbors, mirror the play of interweaving lights and darks of buildings and piers crowned by steeples and mast tops. I am fascinated by the ghostly quality of these buildings looming out of the mists, endowed with strength and endurance. For me, historic architecture represents a bridge between one life-span into another. Abandoned not by time, but by those who built them, our structures remain and continue to wage war with nature’s elements."

Located in Perkins Cove in one of the old, rustic buildings. Beautiful local art that could be a great souvenir of the area.

These paintings are amazing. We were here on our first day of a long vacation and did not want to fill up on things this early. Wish we had gone back. Next time, we'll end the trip here!

Lovely woodcut and ink prints. You should look for (or ask) to see the large framed explanation of how he makes his images. If Don Gorvett is there, he a friendly person and easy to talk to about his work.

We stopped in here on a cloudy afternoon as we walked around Perkins Cove after seeing some of Don Gorvett's art in the Admiral's Inn, where we stayed. His art is very distinctive, and we discovered a connection with him as he's worked in Gloucester where he also had a recent show, and we have a family summer house there. The gallery manager was helpful, informative, and not at all pushy. A really nice part of our walk around Perkins Cove.
