Tenacre Art Gallery
The mission of the Tenacre Art Gallery (TAG) is to inspire, enrich and fuel the creative spirit of our students, staff and parents by presenting thought-provoking artwork and welcoming exceptional artists to the Tenacre Community. TAG hosted its first exhibition in the spring of 2007. When artists exhibit their work at Tenacre, they also agree to work with students in art class. This has been a wonderful opportunity for Tenacre students, who have learned from painters, photographers, illustrators and other artists.
Current TAG Artist: Jason Boucher
A mason by trade with a deep-rooted passion for art, Jason Boucher is a self-taught painter, illustrator, muralist and portrait artist located in the Boston area. His recent work includes several children’s book illustrations, including Darlene the Drama Queen Series, Courage for Charlie, and The Allergy Avengers, as well as large-scale murals for several local institutions and restaurants such as Bar Louie at Patriot Place in Foxboro, MA. Jason specializes in assisting authors that publish stories about people with physical or emotional differences. Jason has worked for Consigli Construction Co., Inc. since 2007 where he has built a career in construction while applying his artistic talents in the form of intricate masonry craftsmanship. His resume of projects includes work for local high-profile institutions such as Wellesley College, Trinity Church in Boston, and several historic buildings throughout the Harvard University campus. While his work as an illustrator has provided additional life to an author’s words, his abilities as a mason has restored and preserved notable landmarks. Combining his two passions of art and construction, Jason was recently assigned to a renovation project at BIDMC for Consigli. The opportunity arose for Jason to apply his creativity by painting a remarkable 60-foot mural of various Boston scenes, providing a unique experience for the hospital’s patients and families as they transitioned through the hospital’s main connector during construction work. Jason and his wife Erika reside in Southbridge, MA with their three children.
