Rediscovering Jon Kodwyck

We have recently begun to see Jon Kodwyck’s drawings and paintings find new collectors. Jon was part of a talented group of artists who lived and maintained studios in Newburyport during the period of its renaissance. The late 60s and 70s saw the city begin to emerge from the decay it had fallen into, and the artists like Kodwyck, Mickelson, Richard Gibney and Waldo Pierce provided some of the energy, and a good deal of the optimism that fueled this city’s rebirth.

Our ongoing interest in Jon Kodwyck’s work was coincidentally given a boost when two sources came forth and asked if we would like to show some of their collections of his art, and offer it for sale in our gallery on Market Street.

We currently have several pieces available.
These are just two of my favorites.

"Woman with a Purple Robe" acrylic on board, 1987
