Washington Street Art Center Gallery - January 5, 2007

The Washington Street Art Center presents "Welcome Home" by Meghan Bernal on the 5th of January, 2007 at the Gallery 321,WSAC, 321 Washington Street, Somerville.

"Welcome Home" brings an artist to a place where she feels mentally and physically comfortable and at peace. Ironically, to most it is a cold and uninviting state of ruins. Over the span of 3 years, she has taken full advantage of this particular locations hospitality. Using a variety of mixed media, she attempts to convey her connection with certain aspects of a place that was left to fall apart and be forgotten. With words, objects and images, she chooses to rebuild and remember.

The Washington Street Art Center houses the cooperative gallery; hosts studio space for more than twenty visual artists; and presents exhibitions, concerts, workshops for adults and children, and other art initiatives. The Center participates in
Somerville Open Studios each May and sponsors concerts featuring local musicians.

The Washington Street Art Center is between Union Square and Beacon Street: a five-minute walk from Union Square and a ten-minute walk from Harvard Square (two blocks from Beacon Street). Accessible on the #86 bus. Parking is free and ample.

For more information, call (617) 623-5315 or visit:
