Public Reception for Kevin Gillespie: Local Scenes

January 10, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm


The Friends of the Jamaica Plain Branch of the Boston Public Library in partnership with Uforge are pleased to announce a new exhibition as part of their rotating art program. After soliciting proposals from a range of local artists, a selection committee comprised of community members and BPL staff has chosen six exceptional artists to fill its gallery space over the course of 2019. The first exhibition of the year will highlight the watercolor landscapes of local artist Kevin Gillespie.

A resident of Jamaica Plain for over 30 years, Gillespie paints serene, closely studied scenes of his neighborhood’s many natural wonders, including Jamaica Pond and the Arnold Arboretum. His work, often done en plein air, captures the shadows of tree branches, the ripples of water, and the changes of the season observed along the well-trod paths of the region’s parks. The medium of watercolor allows for subtle gradations in color and texture along with small details like fallen leaves and footprints in the snow.

Kevin Gillespie: Local Scenes is on view from January 4 through February 28, 2019, with a public opening reception on Thursday, January 10, 5:30-7:30 PM.
