Art by John Collette

 

John Collette  (1941-1997) - While studying music and art in his early twenties at Boston University, John Collette also sold his paintings through Boston galleries. In the summertime, he would visit Quebec City and sketch scenes of the charming streets in Vieux Quebec, and with fellow artists on the quaint Rue du Tresor, he sold his art to tourists.

It was in Quebec in 1968 that John met Carol, and married in the Autumn. The following year, they each began creating copperplate etchings and drypoint engravings, often adding translucent washes of watercolor on the print after it dried. They traveled the East Coast from Maine to Maryland that first year, selling their watercolored etchings to galleries in cities and coastal towns. A year later, they set out on the first of many six-week road trips to California, finding many new galleries to show their art. It was an exciting adventure to be on the road and a wonderful way to see the country and find new inspiration for their art.

John was especially fond of the beautiful brownstone buildings on Beacon Hill, in Boston, and they provided much inspiration for his lovely etchings. Other subjects which he favored include fishing boats, sailboats, birds, and oil rigs. John's artwork is included in many private, corporate, and public collections.
