ABOUT / Don Gorvett is an artist and printmaker known for his large and powerful woodcuts of maritime and architectural subjects. He was born in Boston, MA, in 1949, and attended the School of the Museum of Fine Arts through the Ford Junior Fellowship Grant. His life-long intention of living within the realms of harbors and the sea continues to provide the intellectual stimulus in which to approach maritime imagery.
