About The Artist


 



Coastal artist Joe Gallant is a full-time oil, watercolor and acrylic painter and instructor. His painting technique is loose, spontaneous, and full of interesting color  interactions. The light and transparency in his paintings create a glow that is recognizable from across a room.  His painting won Best in Show during Sandwich Arts Alliance’s Plein Air Event in 2018.

His interest in art began as a child, and his father and mother were both accomplished painters.  He had fine art instruction in college, was mentored by artist John Woodruff after moving to Cape Cod, and became a full-time artist on the Cape in 1998.

Gallant conducts his popular Big Brush Painting Workshops for several art centers and other organizations. In 2019, Joe conducted an all-day painting workshop for Cape and Islands arts teachers K-12 sponsored by Cape Cod Collaborative’s Professional Development Day.

He has an in-home studio and gallery in Sandwich, Massachusetts that is open by appointment. Gallant’s original paintings, prints, boxed note cards and boxed Christmas cards are available on his website and at numerous retail shops in New England.  Gallant’s original paintings are also popular auction offerings at non-profit organizations’ fund raising events. 

He accepts commissions from individuals and businesses.
