Jim Broussard was recently featured on Wicked Local Provincetown:
Born in 1956 to NYC Illustrator Edwin Broussard and raised in Montvale, New Jersey, Jim Broussard has been painting for more than thirty years. In 1976, Jim enrolled at Boston State College and in 1978 transferred to Massachusetts College of Art, where he studied painting. In 1981 he rented a studio in Boston's South End, where he painted for nearly twenty years.
Spending summers in Provincetown as a youth, Jim's painting frequently led him back to Cape Cod. In 2002, he moved to Provincetown full-time, trading in his large South End studio for a new, smaller one and the limitless plein air expanse of land's end's quaint and historic architectural motifs and spectacular sea and dune scapes.
In 2011, Jim was the recipient of a two-week artist residency at the Margo-Gelb dune shack in the Cape Cod National Seashore through O.C.A.R.C. (Outer Cape Artists Residency Consortium). His work has been represented by the Loading Dock Gallery in Boston, Gail Browne Gallery in Provincetown , he has exhibited works in Members shows at the Provincetown Art Association and Museum and can be found in several private collections in the U.S., Europe and Canada.
Currently, Jim has his work on display at Oils by the Sea ROCCPRIORE GALLERY, 437 Commercial St.
