Artist of the Month: Andrea Tamkin
You know what's great about this week? 5pm sunsets. You know what's even better? We are welcoming a new and fun artist to grace our walls. Andrea Tamkin, a local JP artist, is known for her custom pet portraits, but she will be brining along a diverse and fun show. Stop by this Thursday for our My Furry Valentine Event, to meet Andrea and enjoy some local shopping for your favorite four legged friend.
Andrea concentrated in painting at the Museum School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Since 1986 her work has been exhibited in many local galleries such as the Society of Arts and Crafts and the Bernard Toale Gallery, and in the Chuck Levitan Gallery in New York. Her artwork is in private collections and in corporate collections such as the Bank of Boston and The Federal Reserve Bank of Boston.
Artist Statement: "Whether it be a pet portrait, landscape or still life my observations are captured by responding to color, brush marks on the canvas, building the surface, and working intuitively. Trusting the process in hopes that my individuality, quirkiness and whimsey come through in the art work."
My Furry Valentine: A South Street Event February 2nd, 4:30pm - 7:30pm
Let's face it. Our pets can be better than some people. Why not treat them right this ...
