Fine Art in Southeastern Massachusetts True Grit encompasses a drive; a passion to create. It reflects a rich history in the area of Southeastern Massachusetts, where it calls home.

This is where the Pilgrims strove to gain a foothold of religious freedom in a New World and where an ancient and noble people fought and eventually suffered against their encroachment. True Grit embodies the landscape of the area, peppered with old factories, triple-deckers, and their salty, resourceful, inhabitants. True Grit is echoed in the cheers of die-hard New England sports fans who had lo

Had a very interesting discussion with the family of deceased artist George Hartley yesterday about this piece. We discussed the seeming duality of symbolism in the painting — between the sensual and the spiritual. After they left, I remembered the piece was titled 'Manichaen Graffiti'. Wikipedia defines Manichaeism as follows: "Manichaeism taught an elaborate dualistic cosmology describing the struggle between a good, spiritual world of light, and an evil, material world of darkness. Through an ongoing process that takes place in human history, light is gradually removed from the world of matter and returned to the world of light, whence it came. Its beliefs were based on local Mesopotamian religious movements and Gnosticism. It revered Mani as the final prophet after Zoroaster, Gautama Buddha, and Jesus." Can you spot the symbols?
'George Hartley: Native Son' is up through Apr 9. Gallery hours are Tues 11-4, Wed thru Fri 10-5, and Sat 10-3. True Grit Art Gallery is located at 38 Center St. in Middleboro, MA.

“Deliver Us From Evil” 30”x 24” oil on canvas by George Edward Hartley (1933-2020). This painting is part of our two-month retrospective exhibit, ‘George Hartley: Native Son’, Feb. 8 through Apr. 9 at True Grit Art Gallery. It depicts two females in religious attire who appear to be either Mennonites or Amish viewing a large painting by Peter Bruegel the Elder titled “The Fall of The Rebel Angels”. The original painting depicted in this work dates to 1562 and is displayed at The Royal Museum of Fine Arts in Belgium. We don’t know if George Hartley ever visited the museum or if he did, whether or not he actually witnessed the scene depicted. We feel the more likely story is that this is an imagined scenario of George’s and meant to be an allegory of sorts. As part of this retrospective exhibit, there is a sister piece that depicts a similar scene using similar models but with a different painting housed at a different museum. We do know that in Bruegel’s work there is an undeniable influence of the more well-known Dutch painter Hieronymous Bosch, 1450- 1516. True Grit Art Gallery is located at 38 Center St in Middleboro, MA. Open Tues 11-4, Wed thru Fri 10-5 and Sat 10-3.

Beginning Tuesday, February 8th, True Grit Art Gallery (Middleboro,MA) will host a retrospective exhibition of paintings by long-time Middleboro resident and accomplished artist George Edward Hartley. Sadly, George passed away in 2020 but left behind an impressive body of artworks that deserve to be seen by the public. Through a collaboration with surviving family members, the gallery will showcase an exhibition of the deceased artist’s large paintings. ‘George Hartley: Native Son’ is on view at True Grit Art Gallery from February 8th through April 9th of 2022.
George was born a twin on January 1, 1933, in Boston. He moved to Middleboro with his family when he was a boy and graduated from Middleboro High School in 1950. He served on an oil tanker in the Navy, stationed in Hawaii and Kodiak, Alaska, after which he returned to Middleboro and worked as a lumberjack. In the late 1960s, he became a member of the Iron Workers Union Local 7 in Boston.
After retiring from construction in the late 1980s, he became a full-time painter. He was a member of the prestigious Copley Society of Art in Boston. One of his early influences was Maxfield Parrish, whose technique of glazing led George to experiment with earlier painting methods of the nineteenth century. Recurring themes of nineteenth-century Romantic poetry can be discerned in many of his works. A love of history and nostalgia is also prevalent in many of his trompe l’oeil- style, still-life paintings. George used family members and acquaintances as models in his works, often depicting them in scenes from mythology and literature.
As a whole, George Hartley’s paintings suggest he was a renaissance man of many dimensions who lived a rich and rewarding life. In addition to painting, this blue-collar worker turned artist also enjoyed ballroom dancing, traveling, and playing the harmonica. It is apparent through his works that he was a man not content to let life pass him by.

True Grit Art Gallery is located at 38 Center St in Middleboro, MA. Regular gallery hours are Tues 11-4, Wed thru Fri 10-5, and Sat 10-3.
