About Andrea Potter
AndreaPotter3[1]
I am a local artist who paints and draws using a variety of media, including gouache, acrylics and oil pastels. I tend to favor landscapes populated with human elements and artifacts. Lately I have been exploring nocturnal scenes. I’ve found oil pastels to be a perfect medium for rendering this elusive and mysterious time—allowing for sources of light (both on and off paper) to coexist with objects and figures residing in deep blue and green shadow. I also find oil pastels to constitute an interesting marriage of drawing and painting. I happily share studio space in Hyde Park with two other artists.

Artist’s Statement

“I like the idea of being an artist out of time, somehow transported to this century like a modern day Rip Van Winkle.”

James studied traditional painting at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, which has a long and great history of figurative painting. He loves art of the Victorian era, particularly the academic painters in 19th century France. His paintings follow the Classical methods taught over a hundred years ago, that are now out of vogue.

Even though his work at first glance seems very traditional, his influences are anything but. Even his most figurative paintings will have something of the bizarre or grotesque.

His most recent series is pure pop! Pop and nothing but the pop! Pop goes the Pez. Andy Warhol had his soup cans, James has Pez. What could be more fun than Pop Art? When it’s Pez! Forget the soup cans – Pez have come to life to delight and entertain you.

Pez makes the world go round.

About Tammy Ricker

gallery shot of me with paintingPainting for me is a way to explore my inner world of feelings,  consciousness and reason. Working intuitively with color and  line I work the surface, sometimes applying many layers, letting  each painting assert itself. Inspired by everything related to  nature, sometimes shapes appear that remind me of fragments of the world around us, leaves, flowers, water, sky, buildings, even people. For me this represents the quest for balance between the inner and outer worlds. The underlying focus that ties it all together is an interest in connections – connections to ourselves, to each other and to the world as a whole. My paintings are a deeply personal and intuitive expression of the times we live in and it is my hope that they will continue to evolve from a deeper place that will evoke a state of reflection through which the viewer is transported momentarily and returns enriched.

After studying painting and sculpture at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston I lived and worked for many years in Jamaica Plain. My studio is now located in a beautiful coastal town in southern Maine. Also, an avid Instagrammer, you can see more of my daily practice here: @tjr111

About Jenni Plym

jenniWhen I was 9, my cool older sister started doing pencil drawings of models from fashion magazines.  I was impressed, so I started copying her.  I found I had a talent for it.  In high school, aside from sports, my elective of choice was independent art.

Then college began, where I majored in psychology and set art aside for the better part of 13 years.

The summer of 2010 marked the resurgence of my life as an artist.

My favorite visual art forms are dance, painting, and drawing, and I know I’m seeing something I like when, at a glance, I’m flooded with an emotion.  Sometimes the emotion is generated by the mood of a piece; other times I’m inspired – brought to tears by the sheer skill and time it takes to execute what I’ve just seen.

That’s what I’m out to create with my art: emotion without desire… a daydream… images that arrest people’s attention, and generate an experience or a new thought.

Enjoy.  Contact me about any piece you would like to purchase or commission.  And thank you!

About Julie Gray

Julie creates her white line prints with a focus on the feeling and expression of an object or scene rather than on creating a realistic re-creation. She has been working in the white line print medium for about 5 years. Julie studied the method of printmaking under Kathryn Smith at the Provincetown Art Museum. While she has spent a lot of time working in watercolors, Julie was drawn to the white line method for its process and physical aspects; creating an image, transferring the image to wood, and finally printing the image from the wood block.

Outdoor Attractions
Once called the “Eden of America,” Jamaica Plain is bursting with natural beauty. The Arnold Arboretum, which is maintained by Harvard University, encompasses over 281 acres of unique horticulture. In addition to the Arboretum, Franklin Park, home of the Franklin Park Zoo, is known as Boston’s largest public park*. While technically not in JP, it does border almost the entire east side of the neighborhood and allots JP residents easy access to walking trails, golfing, playgrounds, sports areas, and more. Other outdoor attractions include Olmsted Park and Jamaica Pond, which are also a part of the “Emerald Necklace”.47 Holbrook Aerial

Housing
Close to Northeastern University, Longwood Medical Area, and Wheelock College, JP attracts a diverse population including students, young professionals, and families who call it home. Together with JP’s established community, they have formed an energetic and open-minded community. According to Trendgraphix, the average price for single-family and condo homes over the last year was $580,000 making this one of the more affordable neighborhoods in Boston.

Transportation
As one of the first “streetcar suburbs” in America, JP is an ideal commuter location with access to commuter rail connections, bus routes, and both the Green and Orange Line trains.

JP is also known for hosting numerous bicycle paths such as the Pierre Lallement Path which runs from Forest Hills to Back Bay, where you can hook into other bike paths depending on your destination. In addition, there are several other pathways that wind along the Jamaicaway and Riverway for a scenic ride into Brookline, Fenway/Kenmore, or the Longwood Medical Center.
