Artist Spotlight: Christian Potter Drury

painter of the natural world and its unseen details




We were honored to feature Christian Pottery Drury’s inspiring work at our Gallery Open House in August.  Here’s a snapshot of Christian and a preview of the pieces currently hanging in our gallery. If you’re a local, please stop by to view in person…

Christian Potter Drury comes from a long line of artists. Her relative Allyn Cox spent two decades painting the murals in the Capital rotunda in Washington, DC, and her father was the art book publisher Clarkson N. Potter. Christian spent her childhood in New York City and London and summered in Jamestown, Rhode Island, where she now resides.

Drury trained at London’s Sir John Cass School of Art and at SUNY before embarking on a long and successful career as an Art Director at newspapers, notably the The Los Angeles Times, and most recently the Wall Street Journal.

Christian has drawn and painted since she was 13. Two years ago she returned to painting full time.  We’re so fortunate she did.

Enjoy and be inspired, as we are everyday as we take in the subtleties and messaging in her work.

Only the best,
