Closed Thanksgiving weekend
Nave Gallery, 155 Powder House Blvd, Somerville, MA
Carlene Campbell, Heather Balchunas, Greg Jenkins and Rachel Strutt of the Somerville Arts Council
The Nave Gallery invites photographers to submit images of winter lights. Entries do not need to be based in Somerville, MA to be considered.
Each year, the cold and dark of the winter season is brightened by lights of celebration. From quiet displays commemorating religious celebrations to grand designs that flood the senses, these lights invite us to contemplate and be cheered as we make our way through short days and long months.
This exhibition will be juried by the staff of the Somerville Arts Council, who are holiday light experts in their own right. Each year, the Somerville Arts Council runs a trolley tour throughout the city to spotlight some of the city’s unique holiday lights displays. Somerville’s infamous city lights kick off the area’s holiday season.
