  Scituate artist, Robert G Beaulieu is this year’s Best in Show Winner for his oil painting “Fitzgerald’s General Store” at the Scituate Arts Association's Juried Show. An SAA President Emeritus and former Front Street Gallery Artist, Bob has been a part of many SAA Juried Shows and won several awards. Jurors Cathy McCarthy & Vincent Crotty selected his work from among 90 others. Congratulations! 
   A graduate of CT’s Paier School of Art, Bob continued his education at Boston’s Museum School of Fine Arts. An illustration major, he turned his career toward design and advertising, becoming president & owner of a Boston agency for a number of years. (Semi-retirement a few years back allowed him more time for painting.) Since Bob enjoys meeting other artists and art-lovers, he does a number of demos and SSAC courses a year as well as hosting a monthly portrait workshop at the SAA’s Ellis House. You can view one Bob’s Community TV demos at:  During his time as SAA President, current President Janet Cornacchio and other SAA members secured funding for the purchase of the Front Street Art Gallery.
  Robert can often be found driving to painting locations in his classic MG, (or even his bicycle) with his French easel bungeed onto the vehicles’ luggage rack. Other interests, which include Bicycling, Scuba Diving and a National Competition license with the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) for over forty years, lead to potential painting subjects. While Bob is primarily a Plein Aire artist, this Best in Show piece represents another of his interests: “…if you looked on my website, ( under cityscapes, you'll see…what I call store front paintings. Having not done one in quite a while…I found this shot of Fitzgerald’s in Southborough MA, which I photo'd on a bike ride either in '72 or 73.  I enjoyed the shot of the old building [and chose to do it] in a brighter light with more vibrant  color and simplified detail…I have many times found the perfect time and location to capture a future painting while on one of my rides...”
