The 550 Gallery and Studios are owned and managed by Dick and Carol Marti. They have 4 children and 15 grandchildren who all enjoy the arts in one way or another. We are very proud to have a family full of artists.

Our grandaughter, Arielle M. Matthews, graduated from Endicott College in Beverly, MA in May of 2012 with a BFA in Creative Arts Therapy and a minor in Psychology.  She is continuing her studies for her Master’s Degree in Education in Portland, Oregon.
