America’s oldest community theater is teaming up with one of the first Artist Associations in Boston for a month of drama and art. Since 1987 Jamaica Plain artists have been creatively collaborating and this spring the tradition continues with the JPAA Spring Members Show on view from April 13th to May 3rd in Eliot Hall during the run of Heathers the Musical at The Footlight Club. In addition to viewing the exhibition, gallery visitors will have the opportunity to hear directly from several exhibiting artists about their art and creative process during an evening of Artist Talks on Wednesday, April 18th from 6 to 9pm.
The Jamaica Plain Artists Association is a membership-based group open to visual artists in and around Boston, Massachusetts who create and promote art in our community. Members include painters, photographers, sculptors, designers, ceramists, jewelers, mosaic and book artists, printmakers and digital media artists at all stages of development. Joining forces with The Footlight Club and Boston Main Streets exemplifies the mission of the Jamaica Plain Artists Association to foster a supportive community of artists, promote art to a broad audience, and work with organizations, businesses, and individuals, to benefit JPAA artists and the wider community using the power of art to promote creativity, diversity and inclusivity.
