The latest art exhibit at the JP Branch Library is based on a resident's 500-mile pilgrimage leading to the shrine of the apostle St. James the Great in Spain.
Andrew Stearns' Always on the Camino is the last exhibit at the Jamaica Plain Branch Library for 2019. This is the newest exhibit as part of a rotating art program by the Friends of the Jamaica Plain Branch Library, in partnership with Uforge.
Stearns is a Jamaica Plain-based printmaker with a BFA in Printmaking and History of Art from MassArt.
This exhibit is based upon his travels along the Camino de Santiago, and utilizes a mixture of woodcut and lithographs.
"Stearns employs a graphic, at times, collage-like style, with bold lines and bright hues of orange and chartreuse, mixing architectural, landscape, and figural motifs. The resulting series is an eye-catching journey through the artist’s own memories," said a press release from Uforge.
The exhibit is on the lower level of the library, and will be on display through Dec. 31.
