Art by JPAA Members

November 1 - December 31, 2017
Andrea Tamkin, Connie Bigony, Suzanne Hoffman, Erica Nazzaro, Yvonne Troxell
Monhegan 5; #FiveWomenArtists
JP Licks
659 Centre Street
Jamaica Plain, MA 02130

This exhibition is the result of five artists responding to the magic of Monhegan Island, Maine. We all worked for a week in June of 2017 creating drawings and paintings that communicate the beauty and majesty of the island. We are happy to note how the colors and forms of the different paintings compliment each other in spite of the stylistic differences of the individual artists.


November 15, 2017 - January 13, 2018
Jessica Burko
ArtProv Gallery
150 Chestnut Street
Providence, RI 02903

Solo exhibition in Burko’s most recent chapter of striving to make sense between the dichotomy of asserting an identity as an individual and being lost in the onslaught of responsibility to others. Beneath thick layers of encaustic medium figurative images are captured in frenzied motion seeming to emerge out of the haze. Created as a response to the demands of modern motherhood, Quiet/Loud treads heavily on unspoken taboos.

November 15 - December 14, 2017
Reception: Sunday December 10th, 6-10pm
Remi Picó | Untitled Reality
The Gate (Mon-Sun 11:30am-1am)
3171 Washington Street,
Jamaica Plain, Boston 02130

In this solo Exhibition Picó explores the question “how does our idea of reality change when language is transformed, weakened or silenced?” Remi’s current work points to these question by portraying spaces in which language evanesces, conventions disappear and our defined-reality fades away.
