Dedee Shattuck

Gallery Owner and Director,

Dedee Shattuck grew up on Barney's Joy Farm in Dartmouth, Massachusetts. She studied interior design in New York City in the 1970s, where she met her future husband, artist William Shattuck. The couple moved back to Dartmouth in the early 80's to pursue their art interests and to raise their two sons, Will and Ben. 

Valuing the open space of her childhood, Shattuck has participated in land conservation efforts across Southeastern Massachusetts and has been instrumental in ecosystem preservation through work with Massachusetts Audubon, Dartmouth Natural Resources Trust, and SEMAP (Southeastern Massachusetts Agricultural Partnership). Early to realize the link between sustainable, local agriculture and land preservation, she published "Farmers: Portraits in a Changing Landscape," celebrating New England's cultural history of small-scale farming.
