Gabby Gathering – Artist Fran Scully

Painting by Fran Scully

Fran Scully is a local Ogunquit artist whose work has been featured in the Scully Gallery in both Perkins Cove and 680 Main Street in Ogunquit since 1973 and she has spent summers in Ogunquit since 1951.

Inspiration for paintings comes from her admiration of nature—her love of the rugged coast line and landscapes of Maine, the magical beauty of Ogunquit’s Marginal Way and picturesque Perkins Cove, as well as the countryside settings of Maine and Connecticut. Critics have described her watercolor florals as having fragility combined with a freedom of their own. Her gentle touch with the delicacy and freshness of flowers shown through her watercolor paintings reveals her warm personal feeling for nature in all forms.

Fran studied at the University of Hartford Art School, Bay Path College, Asnuntuck College and with many nationally known artists. She has exhibited widely in regional, national and solo shows and has received numerous awards. For 15 years, she served as President of the Academic Artists Association based in Springfield, Massachusetts. Her work is represented in permanent public and private collections throughout the world.

Preservation of the Old Boston Land.

Join us on Thursday, October 8, 2020 at 2:30 PM for a Zoom session about an important conservation effort: preservation of the Old Boston Land.

Ogunquit and the Great Works Regional Land Trust have a one-time opportunity on November 3rd to protect the Old Boston Land on North Village Road. At 157 acres this is the largest remaining undeveloped property in the town with over 2000 feet of frontage on the Ogunquit River. Its woodlands, wetlands, historic foundations and cemetery would provide for outdoor recreation and protect water quality. It connects with 6000 acres of conservation lands stretching to Mt Agamenticus. Tin Smith, Great Works Regional Land Trust Board member, will talk about this exciting project and answer questions.

We hope to see you there on Zoom!
