Jon Kodwyck, a retrospective @CSG

Jon Kodwyck , a well known local artist, 1917 ~ 2006, was born in Haverhill, Massachusetts. He was one of six children of Russian immigrants who had to flee their beloved native country as imperial Russia collapsed. A resident of Newburyport in his later years, Jon painted and drew most of his adult life. His unique and sometimes haunting expressionism is easily recognized and highly sought after. His works grace the homes of collectors, politicians, and art lovers throughout the country. He and his wife, Helen, were the first to start an open art gallery on the North Shore, in Newburyport, in the early 1960’s. His work is currently being shown at the Connor Summers Gallery
