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

Vignettes

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.

J.P. Licks and O’Malley Debut Boston’s First Coffee Composting Station

Always in pursuit to help the environment, Jamaica Plain's City Councilor Matt O'Malley recently teamed up with J.P. Licks to debut Boston's first coffee composting station. Did you know that when composted used coffee grounds are a fantastic source of nitrogen? That makes coffee grounds great for composting and gardening. So starting Dec. 27, J.P. Licks will be giving away used ground coffee from their in-house roaster every Tuesday and Thursday.
