The curator for the 1st show In The Beginning is Greg DeLory of Orleans, MA.
A graduate of the San Francisco Art Institute, Greg went on to earn a BFA degree in\ photography and an MA in Interdisciplinary Studies at UCSF followed by a master’s degree in architecture from SF Institute of Architecture. Greg taught photography and worked as an architectural photographer while starting out in the building trades. For 40+ years, Greg has exhibited his work in numerous galleries across the USA including a 2018 exhibit, “A Cape Cod Portfolio,” at the Gallery Upstairs in Orleans, MA. He also led the curators team for 10 years at St. Gregory of Nyssa Episcopal Church in San Francisco, a parish filled with talented artists.
I have been following and capturing the light since 1967. Studied at the San Francisco Art Institute, BFA 1971 and S.F. State University MA, 1983. Many group exhibitions through the nineties. Taught at Diablo Valley College Pleasant Hill CA. In a few collections including SFMOMA. I moved to my hometown on Cape Cod in 2008 and am working on a long term project “The Other Cape Cod”
I volunteered to curate the Galley West Art Gallery’s first show “In the Beginning” not only because I have enjoyed being a curator in other capacities. But, because I have a history with the Galley West as I lived across the street from the church as a child and young teenager.
My family knew Vernon Smith and the Joy family and commissioned artwork from Vernon, which has been passed down to me and my brothers. I was privileged to take wood carving lessons from Vernon and, his grandson, Dan Joy, who has designed and built the gallery signs, has also done work for my family over the years.
When asked to be a gallery curator, it seemed like a good time to jump in and honor the history and legacy of the Galley West and be a part of this exciting new journey.
