This year, the City of Somerville is celebrating their 175th year. To join in on the celebration, Somerville Open Studios has decided to celebrate our history of amazing volunteers by inviting ALL volunteers both past and present to participate in this year's Volunteer Show at Diesel Cafe in Davis Square. If at any point from 1999 to now you donated some of your time to SOS, we want to celebrate YOU.
To participate, please send an email to our Volunteer Show Coordinator, Gretchen Graham, at email@example.com . Once you have indicated your interest, Gretchen will be in contact with more information about drop-off dates, size requirements, and reception information.
Behold the doughnut. Two glorious ounces of glistening goodness.
Twisted, glazed, iced, filled, topped, or naked, it has been portrayed in various mediums since its (American) invention in the late 18th century. The oozing, dripping, delectable delight is made from flour, sugar, eggs, and milk; but yours can be made from any medium that can be hung on the wall at Union Square Donuts, 20 Bow Street.
You'll find more information here on how to submit donut-themed art for this show. Any participating SOS 2017 artist or volunteer may submit work.
After a one-year hiatus, SOS is bringing back Beyond the Pattern, our live showcase for fashion and wearable art. If you want to participate, please send a short description of your work and 3 jpegs to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We'll have our next informational meeting on Thursday, February 23, 7-9 pm, at Mad Oyster Studios, 2 Bradley Street.
If you know of a current or upcoming art exhibit in Somerville that isn't listed here, please send e-mail to email@example.com .
