Blue Jacket Studio is in Brewster, MA, on the north side of 6A, and is a year-round painting and printmaking studio for Cape artist Liz Perry. Perry attended the College of Ceramic Art & Design at Alfred University, graduating with a BFA in painting and printmaking. She studied abstract painting and multiple printmaking techniques, especially stone lithography and zinc plate etching with printmaker John Wood, and painter/video artist Harland Snodgrass. She has also studied with printmaker Jon Hall at Haystack School of Crafts.
Over the years, Liz has taught drawing and printmaking, and given many printmaking demos at Cape Cod schools, art centers and community events. She has taught family drawing and nature drawing classes at The Audubon Center in Wellfleet and The Museum of Natural History in Brewster, and also worked for many programs designed to introduce children and young adults to printmaking on the Cape.
Ms. Perry has been creating and exhibiting her work for 45 years, receiving numerous awards for her monoprints, mixed media, and abstract paintings at The South Shore Art Center, The Duxbury Art Complex, The Cape Cod Art Association, The Creative Arts Center in Chatham, and participated in many juried shows at PAAM and Cape Cod Museum of Art and The Printmakers of Cape Cod, where she is presently co-President on their Board of Directors.
Blue Jacket Studio and her small summer gallery are located behind the historic Dillingham House in West Brewster. Blue Jacket Studio is named after her husband’s seafaring ancestor’s famous ship, The Blue Jacket, which was skippered by James Dillingham.
