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.

A two-alarm fire that started in the attic of a 17 Burr St. home did about $100,000 damage, said Steve MacDonald, spokesman for the Boston Fire Department. Crews responded to the single-family home at 2:37 p.m. Friday. They had to maneuver carefully on the crowded street to brace Tower Ladder 10 as it deployed its ladder.
