Samuel Lancaster Gerry (1813–1891) was an performer in 19th-century Boston, Massachusetts. He painted portraits and also landscapes of the White Mountains and additional locales in New England. He was affiliated similar to the New England Art Union, and the Boston Artists' Association. In 1857 he co-founded the Boston Art Club.

He attended the 1860 convention of the National Art Association in Washington, DC. Students of Gerry included H.
