B. Glee Lucas

B. Glee Lucas is an oil painter in Boston's South End Arts District. Her colorful paintings of refracted and reflected images have been selected for national and regional competitions and are held by collectors across the United States.

B. Glee studied painting at Mass Art and the museum schools at the DeCordova, in Lincoln, MA, and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. She is a member of Cambridge Art Association, Catherine Lorilliard Art Club (NYC), Concord Art Association, the SoWA Artists Guild and the United South End Artists Association.

Her compositions represent a personal point of view:

I seek out, create, and capture images of color and light. The subjects of my work may be family artifacts or a transitory view from a traveler's window. Each painting is created with an intense focus on the subject matter that invites the viewer to share the richness and dimensions of a composition constructed by many small elements of light. I strive to capture on canvas what I observe as reflected and refracted light alters shapes and scatters color. Painting these images allows me to exist within a visual moment and consider that nothing is isolated from reflecting and refracting the environments in which it resides.

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.
