Artist Statement

My medium is primarily relief printmaking: woodcut and other experimental printmaking techniques, including collage. I aspire to combine color, line, layers and textures to creat ambiguous spaces that show movement, ask questions and create moods. Thanks for taking a look!

Julia Talcott has been an artist as long as she can remember and has worked as an illustrator since 1985. Since that time, she has also added printmaker and teacher to her resume. She currently teaches relief printmaking techniques at the Arsenal Center for the Arts in Watertown, MA and in her private studio.
Talcott Christmas Stamp
Creator of the 1996 Christmas stamp for the U.S. Postal Service, she has received four certificates of design excellence in illustration from Print Magazine. She has shown her work in various group shows both in the Boston area and nationally. Her work is in private, museum, and corporate collections. She holds an MFA in printmaking from Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, MI.


On Sunday, May 8, 2011, there will be a reception in The Gallery at 11:45 am, following the worship service, where Ms. Talcott will be happy to greet you and chat about her work.
We hope you will take this opportunity to enjoy the exhibit!

About the Mary Jo Rines Gallery At First Parish

The Gallery At First Parish opened September 17, 2000.

On September 13, 2011, the Standing Committee voted to name the Gallery in honor of its founder,
Mary Jo Rines, who died on September 4, 2011. A special exhibit of Mary Jo’s work was on display
in the Gallery from September 20 – September 30, 2011.

Its purpose, as described by the founders:

The mission of The Gallery At First Parish is to add another dimension
to the spiritual fabric of our lives by exhibiting the work of visual artists
who seek to contribute to a deeper understanding of the human condition.

The Gallery is intended to be a service to the parish, the artist and the wider community.

It is open to the public without charge 9 AM – 4 PM weekdays, and 9 AM – 12:30 PM Sundays.
Interested parties may also call the Church Office (781-893-7798) for other possible viewing times.

Exhibits are listed in the First Parish Event Calendar.
