Create a macaw mask, grab some popcorn, and then move inside to watch a free screening of "Rio" on August 7. Oh, don't forget there will be free J.P. Licks ice cream! "Rio" is a G-rated movie about the story of Blu, a domesticated macaw, who goes on an adventure to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This event is part of Hyde Square Task Force's Viva el Latin Quarter Summer Series. The crafts will start at 6 pm on the Blessed Sacrament Plaza (631 Centre St.), and then move inside for the movie. For more information, please contact Sarah at firstname.lastname@example.org or 617-318-6610.
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.

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.
