Ron Lister has lived in Westport for 24 years.
He was the Director of the Art Department at Bristol CC and Chair of the Visual & Performing Arts Department for 24 years.
Although Ron taught a number of subjects over those years, teaching painting and figure drawing were his favorites.
After retiring from his full time position in 2013, Ron has traveled to a number of places to paint ( The Cook Islands, New Zealand, Arizona),
but feels that Westport is an equally fine place to paint.
Ron works in oils, watercolors, and pastels (Drawing With Pastels for Simon & Schuster).
His most recent painting series involves sunsets and late day oil paintings, mostly done in Westport.
He still teaches a painting or drawing class at BCC. and is currently showing at the Klein Gallery in New Bedford.
Ron looks forward to showing with friends and neighbors at the WAG.
