April 30-May 21
plastic+film: an exhibition of toy camera photography

About the Exhibit
Curated by Susan Berstler A myriad of cameras, films, development processes, and finally, printing methods and papers are employed by the 22 artists in Plastic + Film. The subject matter ranges from the intimate to the majestic, the whimsical to the contemplative. Photographs are comprise of images taken in New Zealand, Hong Kong, England, California and many places in between, including Somerville, MA. The artistsíŽ seemingly playful choice of equipment (Holga, Diana, Lomo or whatever model of toy camera used) belies their very serious results. Plastic + Film is a celebration of the creative spirit and the concept of chance. Its unique and individual images are a refreshing change to the increasingly homogenized world of digital images we encounter in everyday life.

About the Exhibit
Project website
"The History of Somerville, 2010-2100" is a community art project that explores what the future might be like. We've been talking to current and former residents; gathering official plans; and collecting think-tank vision statements-- and assembling it all into a history of the future of Somerville. This project is organized by Tim Devin.

2nd Annual Fun-A-Day Boston
Artclash Collective
The Nave Gallery hosts the Artclash Collective's 2nd Annual Fun-A-Day Boston. Participants choose a project and produce one piece of artwork every day for the entire month of January. The 31 resulting pieces create a narrative outlining each artist's journey through the first month of the year. Fun-A-Day fulfills on the belief that everyone is an artist and everything you make is art. This collective project seeks to create a welcoming forum for people to share what they do, to strengthen existing communities of artists, and to kick-start new ones.
