A painter living and working in Boston, Conley Harris focuses on a broad range of landscape elements and themes. The sources for these paintings are sites in New England, Japan, India and the UK. Harris’s studio is in Boston’s South End.
World travel has been the genesis of inspiration to both Harris’s thinking and art. In Glorious Beasts, his acclaimed 2009-10 solo show at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, he created paintings referencing Persian miniatures from the MFA Collection.
Solo exhibitions of Harris’s work have been presented in Boston, New York, San Francisco, London, Kyoto and Tokyo, including his 2017 show A Walled Garden, My Paradise at the Paul Dietrich Gallery, Cambridge Seven Associates, Cambridge, MA and Hidden Delights: New Paintings at Indar Pasricha Contemporary, London in 2008. He has participated in many group exhibitions in galleries and museums throughout the world, including Pembroke College Gallery, Cambridge University, Cambridge, UK; Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia, PA; and Endicott College, Beverly MA.
