Ned Reade
2017 Ned at his easel-Holly Pelczynski's

Major at Williams: Art History and Studio Art


Whether painting on a ridge overlooking a sheep farm, or by the rushing waters of a trout stream, or along the New England coast, Ned Reade captures to changing light and colors of the seasons in watercolors and oils. He likes nothing better than filling a thermos of coffee and bringing a chocolate chip cookie to a painting location. He only rewards himself once the sketch is done, and he’s ready to paint! He teaches a watercolor workshop on Martha’s Vineyard and one at the Southern Vermont Art Center each summer. His work can be seen in galleries around New England.


For over forty-five years he has been Chairman of the Art Department at the Trinity-Pawling School in Pawling, NY.

New in 2024:

Ned will be showing his work in Montpelier, VT at the Vermont Natural Resources Council from May 8 to July 24, 2024, with a June 7 "Art Walk" from 4-8 pm.

Join a three-day plein air watercolor workshop:

July 16-18 in Arlington, VT near Manchester

August 6-8 on Martha's Vineyard
