To All our Supporters and Patrons,
We find ourselves in unexpected and challenging times. We are inspired by the courageous efforts to mitigate the spread of covid-19 by the medical community and responders and the many people that keep our essential services open so that we can safely receive much needed food prescriptions and packages. Thank you all for your efforts including mask-wearing and social distancing. We also wish the best for those that are experiencing hardship and hope that we all get through this as swiftly as possible.
We have been at Queens Buyway now for twelve years and working as full time artists for the past 25 years. Like many businesses on Main Street, we too have had to close our gallery due to the current situation and also face an uncertain future. We are saddened by this event and the times we are in but look to do what we can to come out of this pandemic in a resilient way. We believe in the value of art to inspire and uplift and hope, in some small way, to do our part. With the unknown outlook for the summer ahead we plan to stay in touch through social media to let you know how and what we are doing. Please feel free to reach out by email or phone. We wish you all well and to stay safe during this time.

Hillary Osborn & Doug Rugh
Encouraging connoisseurship, craftsmanship and aesthetic integrity and promoting the value of original works of art in our lives.
The gallery of Cape Cod artists Hillary Osborn and Doug Rugh doubles as a working studio and visitors are welcome to stop by where one of the artists is always at work and observe paintings in progress
Locals will recognize many of their favorite spots in landscapes of Cape Cod and the studio is also filled with a variety of still lifes, florals, interiors and portraits. The oil painters are happy to share their knowledge and appreciation of art and oil painting and welcome any questions you might have.
The husband and wife team have been painting fulltime since 2000 and had separate studios at the Cataumet Art Center in Bourne, MA until the Fall of 2008 when they moved to the present combined gallery and studio space at Queen's Buyway - the historic neighborhood of Falmouth, MA - near the Village Green on Cape Cod.
Osborn and Rugh believe that it is important for artists to study directly from life and on location to understand visual nuances of ever changing light and develop a keen eye and have spent many years painting on location and from live models and studying the craft and aesthetics of oil painting.
