The Amazing Starbucks Gallery
Born and raised in Kingston, Massachusetts, James started a passion for art at an early age with drawing and painting. James ended up in San Diego, California for a few years of his life painting houses, mixing paint, helping out with interior color designs. He ended back in Massachusetts in a small town called Westborough continuing construction and interior color design. From there he landed a job at the Art and Frame Emporium, under the owner Ed Turner, learning how to frame art work, reigniting his passion for art and realizing he had an eye for photography.
With having the great pleasure of helping other artists getting their career started by helping to host art shows for them and selling their work. After six years at the Art and Frame Emporium he took over management and saw a prime opportunity to express his self through his own photography. He mainly focuses on landscapes, enhancing the colors, HDR, or black and white, and he has worked in model photography. With a little help and a spark of inspiration from Jim Hunt, a fellow photographer, he purchased his first camera in 2011. Since then he took first place in the Westborough Community Land Trust art show, was published twice in Le Photographie magazine, published in the 2015 Strathmore Artist Paper catalog, he placed Best in Show in an international show with Contemporary Gallery Online, radio interview with Contemporary Gallery Online, and took first place in the NAWIC photo contest. He has had multiple solo shows in Mathieu Newton Sotheby’s International Realty, Westborough, Boston, and Newburyport. He has eleven works (some as large as sixteen feet) from his freelance job hanging in Verizon, worked on shooting a commercial for Global Technology Systems, nine of his works in the Worcester room at Mirick O’Connell law firm in Worcester, Massachusetts, three 40×30 canvas prints in Avidia Bank of Westboro, decorated Mass Tech Collaborative with his photography, has been a highlighted artist on Etsy with his Lone Survivor photo, and he has sold numerous photos to private collectors, been mentioned in newspapers and on local television. Everyday with the help of being surrounded by fellow artists he continues his passion for photography, which is ever growing. You can find more of his work at the Art and Frame Emporium shop and the Art and Frame Emporiums website or you can also follow him at James McAlice Photography on Facebook to keep up to date with what he is doing.
