Project Description

Sergio Roffo

Sergio Roffo holds the honor of being one of the youngest artists to be designated a Copley Master” by the Copley Society of Boston. An elected “Fellows” member of the American Society of Marine Artists, an elected Art Renewal Center “Living Master” and an elected member of the Guild of Boston Artists. There is something deeply meditative about watching Sergio Roffo put paints onto a canvas. Based in Scituate, Massachusetts, this master painter has spent decades rendering New England landscapes and seascapes with such precision that his works hang like windows, drawing viewers into the most picturesque parts of our region. From Southwest Harbor, Maine, to Jeffersonville, Vermont, to the islands of Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard, to his backyard on the South Shore of Massachusetts, Roffo paints en plein air, setting up his easel in the wild where he races the rising and setting sun each day to complete his studies in one sitting. What emerges are works of art so vivid that they transport you to a place and time where you can practically smell the breeze and feel the sun on your face.”
