The following was submitted by the Somerville Arts Council:
The Nave Gallery (Somerville, MA) will host a group exhibition on March 22nd and 23rd at its main gallery space in Teele Square. Featuring over a dozen local and national artists from the Super Precious Art Gallery, Nursery Rhymes asks artists to create poster print illustrations inspired by their favorite nursery rhymes from childhood.
Nursery Rhymes have gone from early educational rhymes to sing songy lullabies in their history, but show curator Aaron Cohen says they also "have a darker edge perfect for exploration and exploitation by an artist."
“Ring Around the Rosie,” Cohen states, “Is a rhyme about the plague. And it's a beloved children's lullaby, you can't get much darker than that.”
An opening reception will take place Friday, March 22nd, 2013, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm.
