About Don Gorvett
Don Gorvett was born in Boston, Massachusetts, in 1949, and raised within its environs of Cambridge and Somerville, Massachusetts. Much of his youth was spent at the seashore swimming, fishing, and observing fishing-town industry. Don received an extraordinary art education under the tutelage of teacher Elinor Marvin. He moved to Gloucester after graduating from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, to pursue a career in painting and woodcut printmaking. He divided his time between winters in Gloucester and summers in Ogunquit, Maine. In 1990 Don moved to Ogunquit and established his printmaking studio, and in 2006 Don Gorvett opened his first gallery in Portsmouth, NH., Piscataqua Fine Arts. In 2020 we have re-named the gallery to Don Gorvett Gallery.
