Opening Reception – Drawn to Paint: Paintings of Arboretum Trees by Paul Olson

Opening Reception Saturday, May 18, 1:00-3:00pm

Exhibit runs May 10 – July 21, 2019

Location: Hunnewell Building

Artist, Paul Olson, has been discovering the nuances of the Arnold Arboretum's collections since he first passed through its gates in 2011. A landscape painter for decades, Olson explores the grounds with sketchbook in hand, typically in the early morning hours. His goal is to be unencumbered by any agenda and open to what the light of the day presents. In 2012, he had an exhibition at the Arnold Arboretum titled "Drawn to Woods." The expressive ink drawings in that show were all completed en plein air - on-site in the open air.

Vignettes: Art show at JP Licks: Featuring Terry Boutelle and Nancy Marks


Artwork by Terry Boutelle and Nancy Marks

May – June 2019


Now showing at JP LICKS on Centre Street in JP

In literature, a vignette is a short scene that captures a single moment or a defining detail about a character, idea, or other element of the story.  Vignettes are little sections of a much bigger work.  Vignettes are important because they can illuminate significant information, create depth of character, or provide insight into the larger picture. In this show, established Boston artists Terry Boutelle  and Nancy Marks pair their individual works of art to tell a dynamic visual story.  Although the abstract works of each artist are different in their content, there is a resonance between the works involving color, form, line, and mood.  Rather than exhibiting each artist’s work separately, they exploited this resonance by intermixing their paintings in small configurations that they hope will inspire viewers to engage more fully in the artwork.  In considering what resonates within each “vignette,” perhaps the viewer will develop a deeper understanding of each artist’s interpretation of a singular moment or collective experience.

The High Style of Low Art Tiles – Lecture

The High Style of Low Art Tiles
A Loring Greenough House Tuesday in the Parlor presentation by Richard Pennington
April 30, 2019, 7:30 - 9:30 p.m.

The Low Art Tile Company was created in 1878 in Chelsea, Massachusetts, by artist John Gardner Low and his father. Low had studied painting in Paris from 1858 to 1861. He took an interest in the making of pottery and apprenticed with the Chelsea Keramic Art Works. Low’s success was swift, and today the tiles he designed are considered the finest produced in the Victorian era. Low branched out with other product lines, most notably soda fountains and cast iron parlor stoves.
