About The Artist


The Artist Painting at Mycenae

John was awarded a Senior Level Fulbright for his proposal to research and observe through painting, the relationship between the landscape and sacred temple sites at various locations in Greece.

During the five months of his Fulbright grant in Greece, John painted on site at places such as Mycenae, Delphi, Olympia and Ancient Messini. In addition to the landscape, John also painted studies of the wildflowers found in each locale.


Recco was born in Lowell, Massachusetts and received his BFA from the Massachusetts College of Art in 1981, and an MFA from Columbia University in 1984.

He also attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Skowhegan, Maine, receiving the Saltonstall Scholarship there in 1985.

His paintings have been featured recently in solo exhibitions at galleries in Albany, NY; Lake George, NY; Natick, MA; North Bennington, VT; and Cincinnati, OH.
