Dot artists to be featured in JP Open Studios

Taylor House Bed and Breakfast will host seven established artists as part of Jamaica Plain Open Studios later this month. The event— set for the weekend of September 23 – 24— will include artistic and edible creations courtesy of Persimmon Catering.

One of the artists is Patricia Burson, who will feature landscape drawings and paintings of her beloved Dorchester, Arnold Arboretum, and the North Shore.

Sasja Lucas will display both large and miniature, one of a kind prints, which capture the experimental and unpredictable nature of the monotype printing process. Nancy Marks will show a range of work including paintings from her series, Urban Abstraction, a body of work, which explores urban environments. Silvina Mizrahi will display bronze sculptures from her Ethereal Figures series. Ruth Rosner will display sculptures from her series, Totemic Women, made from shards, discarded objects and evocative relics of the street. Arlene Snyder‘s work features various water-based media: watercolor, gouache, and acrylic, as well as graphite and pastels.  And Ann Turley will show oil paintings work from landscape series Wavescapes and other paintings that feature the rocky coast of New England, the Arnold Arboretum and Cape Cod.

Chefs Daryl Bichel and John Nesby will be on site to discuss their creations and will be offering preview samples of items from the Persimmon Catering fall menu.
