Biography from Tree's Place Gallery:
Born in Italy in 1953, Sergio Roffo was brought to America in 1961.  He received his artistic education at the Vesper George School of Art, where his teachers included leading Boston School artist Robert Douglas Hunter (who recently characterized Roffo during this period as "brilliant").  After graduation, he studied figurative work with Hunter's contemporary, Robert Cormier.  Initially a free lance commercial artist for major corporate customers like AT&T and Coca Cola, Roffo simultaneously developed an early passion for painting in the field and for landscapes.

In the early 1990's he left the world of commercial art to focus on his gallery art. His style has developed into a crisp and elegant interpretation of the New England coastal landscape near his home, with occasional forays to other parts of the country.  His work rapidly brought him recognition in open juried competition.  In the last decade he has won over ten major awards in shows sponsored by the Copley Society of Boston, the American Artists' Professional League, and others.  Roffo is an elected member of the American Society of Marine Artists, and of the Guild of Boston Artists, where he was given a solo exhibition in 1998.  He has been designated a Copley Master by the Copley Society of Boston.

Biography from Edgartown Art Gallery (outo of business):
Sergio Roffo, painter (1953-), has been inspired by the work of American traditional painters such as Inness & Bierstadt, among others.  Roffo's representations of coastal landscapes reveal a luminous, masterful feeling.  As you view his art, you will discover a precise sense of value and atmospheric perspective that conveys a relaxed sense of calmness; a characteristic that defines and informs all of his works.  Sergio Roffo's captivating depictions of the New England landscape have been included in a variety of museum exhibitions and have earned him many awards, including two prestigious Grumbacher Gold Medals and the Yankee Sagendorph Award presented by Yankee Magazine.

In 1994, Roffo was the winner of the Massachusetts Duck Stamp, winning on his first attempt.  He holds the honor of being one of the youngest artists to be designated a "Copley Master" by the Copley Society of Boston.  An elected member of the Guild of Boston Artists, Sergio's work is included in many private and publicly owned collections.  He has also been selected for inclusion in numerous publications, such as Cape Cod Life and Down East Magazine.

The Youngest of six children, Sergio was born in San Donato Italy.  His family immigrated to Boston where sometime after high school he attended Vesper George School of Art in Boston, graduating with honors.  A serious artist, Roffo continually strives to capture the elusive essence that is Nature.  "My mission is trying to convey to the viewer the spirituality and sacredness of my work, indicating the harmony of nature through color and light. As artists, our creative goals will never be accomplished. We will always be students of nature, because nature does it so beautifully. We live each day passionately, others only dream of!"
