The Duxbury Art Association features art exhibitions in the Lillian & Ture Bengtz gallery on the first floor and the Bobbie Cutler gallery on the second floor of the Ellison Center for the Arts. We schedule shows throughout year that explore a wide variety of themes and mediums.  Our exhibition registration is open to all artists with the one exception of our Midsummer Art show, which is the annual Duxbury Art Association member show held during the summer.

Currently showing works from Kristin Emerson and Megan McClure.  On display through January

Past Shows:


Seeing Music Gallery Show 2019

Do you paint with music playing? Are you inspired by musical instruments? Do song lyrics inspire you? Show us how music moves you. To celebrate the South Shore Conservatory’s 2019 Duxbury Music Festival, we invite artists to fill the Ellison Center for the Arts with artwork of or inspired by music.


Joyful Gallery Show 2019

What makes you happy? What makes you smile? As spring approaches, we invite our member artists to fill the Ellison Center for the Arts with joyful artwork.







We invite all artists join us for our first ‘Pairs, Triads and Collections’ Show (PTC) in the Bengtz and Cutler Galleries at The Ellison Center for the Arts, 64 St. George Street, Duxbury, MA.

Artwork is to be presented as a cohesive collection with a collective minimum of two works and a maximum of six. As space is limited, submissions will be juried for eligibility.

The Pairs, Triads, and Collections Show will run from Mid November 2018 through Mid-February 2019 with a small evening reception on December 1, 2018. There will be plenty of Holiday Shopping traffic, so sales should be brisk.


Mandy Fariello and Jenny Kelley

Mandy Fariello’s art encompasses bright colors, textures, and layers to be excavated. After many years of concentrating on collage and mailart, she has recently shifted her focus to mixed media abstract painting. She is a juried artist in The Russell Gallery in Plymouth and has won numerous local awards. Mandy has Duxbury ties reaching back to the 1600’s and has been living in town for the past 26 years.

Jenny Kelley received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2005. She specializes in floral still life and is passionate about painting from life observation. An award-winning artist, Jenny is a member of the Copley Society of Art, a Signature Member of American Women Artists, and a very proud member of the Duxbury Art Association. Jenny moved to Duxbury with her husband in 2015.

Both are artists who volunteer their time and energy to the inner workings of Duxbury Art Association.
