Peg TUITT is a Somerville-based artist. She is a documentary photographer and instructor whose work has been exhibited widely in the greater Boston area, including the Museum of the National Center for Afro-American Artists, the Old South Meetinghouse, the Somerville Museum, New Bedford Public Libraries, MassArt, the Nave Gallery, the Artists’ Foundation Gallery, Brickbottom Artists’ Gallery, and the Gallery at Bunker Hill Community College. She has taught photography at Mount Ida’s School of Design and Boston Photo Collaborative and maintains a studio at Vernon Street Studios in Somerville.

Working primarily in black and white, her work includes but is not limited to portraiture, social and historical documentation, and landscape. She uses photography as a tool to advance dialogues around social issues, as well as provoking viewers to re-examine the ordinary, familiar and commonplace elements around them.

Most recently Tuitt is exploring hand bag design and mixed media.
