For the month of February, the Washington Street Art Center presents
our 2007 Collaboration Show. This exhibition brings together talents
of the Washington Street Art Center Members and other artists from
Massachusetts,New York and the Philadelphia area. A reception will be
held on the 2nd of February, 2007, at the Gallery 321,WSAC, 321
Washington Street, Somerville, from 7-9 PM.
This show features collaborations from artists, Christina Preher,
Todd DeHart, Alfred Resteghini, Brian Gordon, Deborah Newey, Melvin
Cartegena, Meredith Fitzgerald, Jermaine Hall, Vanessa Thompson,
Melissa Sherrin, Lee Kilpatrick, Stacy Robinson, Melissa Ezelle,
Lorie Reilly, and Nicole Donson.
Artists were allowed to collaborate with at least one other person
however they wished. The works are as varied as the methods used to
collaborate. Working in the studio together, bringing pieces to work,
and discussing in coffee shops were only some of the ways these
artists connected with one another. Along with the collaborative
drawings, paintings, sculptures and comics -WSAC is inviting the
public to come and participate in a collaboration drawing that will
begin the night of the reception and continue through our public
viewing hours on Saturdays from 12-4pm. Paper and supplies will be
provided, just bring your creativity and a willingness to have fun!
