Selections from the Museum Collection of the North Shore Arts Association

The newly refurbished Members Room of the North Shore Arts Association provides a gallery space for selections from the NSAA Museum Collection and a resource and meeting room for our members. The paintings on the wall include three recent additions to our permanent collection, very generous gifts by our artists and their family members.

The watercolor by Jack Jones is the gift of his widow, Phyllis Jones. The watercolor by Ann Williams is the gift of her cousin, Patricia Cassola. These two paintings were given in 2015. The small oil by Ken Gore, former President of the North Shore Arts Association, was painted circa 1950, and donated in 2013. The portrait of Jeff Weaver was the winner of the Art Supplies Wholesale Award and was donated in 2013 by the artist, B.J. Wayne.
Two works by artist Will Roland Davis, from our extensive holdings by this artist, underwent conservation treatment in 2014 and are also on display in the Members Room.
The North Shore Arts Association is always interested in increasing the holdings in our Museum Collection. We welcome new donations. Anyone interested in donating works can contact our gallery manager, Linda Cote.
With the acquisition of works to form a permanent collection comes a commitment to maintain and preserve works in good condition for the enjoyment of future generations. The conservation of works of art requires the expenditure of funds. Any donation, however small, for the conservation of works in our Museum Collection, would be most welcome. Please see Linda Cote if you are interested.
