The Nave Gallery Annex (Somerville, MA) invites artists to participate in the juried exhibition Winter.
And the snow
They haunt me still”
—Brown BirdOf all the seasons, winter is the one most left up for interpretation. Some shudder at the blasts that burn, snap, nip, and sting; the howls of flurries in the dead of night; winds whisking air to swirls; the fury of things at rest. Others consider contemplation in a perfect storm, rumination in a calm coat of snow, the composition of hushed aches and quiet sorrows in inert lands. In Winter, the Nave Gallery seeks work that explores the degrees of the frost season—the frenzy of ice, the serenity and glow of colors confined, the luminosity within the floe, the severity of a flash of diamonds, the freeze that lights fire to our cheeks, the sound of every footstep packing in a heavy heart, the rime that makes us shiver and brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
