Mary Therese Feeley, who ran the Hutson Gallery in Provincetown, died on April 29, 2021 in Houston, Texas, at age 71. She had suffered a stroke in late March.
Mary was born on Oct. 3, 1949 in Los Angeles, Calif. to Robert and Mary Feeley. She was preceded in death by her parents.
She grew up in Manhattan Beach, Calif. She earned a B.S. in nursing from U.C.L.A. and an M.A. from California State University, Dominguez Hills. She taught nursing at Sacramento City College and at Russell Sage College.
But Mary’s passion was art. Fifteen years ago, she realized her long-held dream and opened the Hutson Gallery in Provincetown, at 423 Commercial St., representing abstract and representational artists.
Mary was active in the Provincetown Art Association and Museum and Ptown Gallery Stroll, and was a student at the Glassell School of Art at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. She enjoyed painting but was primarily a gallerist. At the Hutson Gallery, she encouraged beginning collectors and hoped that the art she carried would speak to the potential buyer.
She enjoyed travel, museums, and visiting with her grandchildren, other family members, and friends.
Mary is survived by her husband, Robert Daniels; her son, Scott Daniels; his wife, Ruth Clark; and their children, Sophia and William Daniels. She is also survived by her sisters, Marie and Stella, and her brother, Thomas.
A Mass of the Resurrection will be celebrated at 10 a.m. on Thursday, May 6 at All Saints Catholic Church, 215 E. Tenth Street, in Houston.
Donations in her memory may be made to the Sisters of the Holy Cross, Development Office —Saint Mary’s, 407 Bertrand Hall, Notre Dame, IN 46556-5000, or to the Provincetown Art Association and Museum.
