Richard Gordon Packer

Richard Gordon Packer

1916-1998

Richard Gordon Packer was from Lynn, Massachusetts. He graduated from Lynn Classical High School in 1934 and graduated from the Massachusetts College of Art in 1938. The teaching staff at that time included the noted sculptor Cyrus Edward Dallin, N.A. (1861-1944) and painter Ernest Lee Major (1864-1951). When in his 30s he began a career as a full time artist and art teacher. He opened his first gallery and art school in Marblehead, Massachusetts. Packer opened a studio in nearby North Conway in 1953 and soon thereafter relocated his gallery as well. There in the White Mountains he taught skiing and gave art lessons until at age 40 when he began painting exclusively. He remained in North Conway for the rest of his life except for occasional art forays to other parts of the country, particularly the dessert Southwest and Italy and France.
