Artwork will once again take over the historic Jamaica Plain Brewery Complex this Saturday night, July 22 with Projections 2, an art exhibit on the exterior walls of the building.
The Jamaica Plain Arts Council together with the Jamaica Plain Neighborhood Development Corporation will present the one-night multimedia event, an unconventional art show that removes the gallery walls and invites guests to experience art in a relaxed, community-centered atmosphere while enjoying live music, dance, and food and drink from JP establishments.
The jurors for the show are:
Rob Festa, who has always had an interest in taking photographs, especially those that capture objects and places in an abstract setting. His work has been shown in galleries in the greater Boston area and New York City. He is a Boston-area architect and has worked with several nationally recognized architectural firms. Festa is a Jamaica Plain Open Studios artist and a former Jamaica Plain Arts Council board member, co-founder of UFORGE gallery, founder and curator of JP to me, and a professional media member of American Photographic Artist.
Jean Mineo, who is thrilled to be affiliated with the JP Arts Council again, having been the JP Open Studios Coordinator from 2006 to 2009. She was also director of the Boston Sculptors Gallery from 2006 to 2015 and has consulted on permanent public art projects in greater Boston since 2010. Prior to this, she oversaw more than 30 exhibitions of contemporary art during her tenure as executive director of the New Art Center in Newton from 1994 to 2003.
The Jamaica Plain Arts Council is a non-profit organization supporting artists in the Jamaica Plain community, through its annual Open Studios, periodic exhibitions, professional development offerings, and a commitment to cultivating local audiences for the visual arts. Open Studios supports over 200 artists who consider JP their home or community, and will be celebrating its 24th anniversary during the next Jamaica Plain Open Studios Sept. 23 and 24, 2017.
