    SOMERVILLE, MA – “Love Letters :: Messages Received,” a new body of work by Marissa Falco, is on display at the Washington Street Art Center from March 2–30, 2013. In this exhibit, Falco uses fabric and thread to craft three-dimensional, functional objects that are both highly relatable and intimately personal. Love’s many messages from the world around us are hidden in hand-constructed garments, while a handmade quilt features text from Falco’s extensive cache of analog correspondence. These objects explore communication within relationships of all kinds; and the types of messages directly received versus the messages one chooses to take in from the world at large. Falco’s “Love Letters :: Messages Received” presents a vintage aesthetic of hand-tailored clothes and letters sent through the mail interwoven with undeniably modern elements of pop music, humor, and sexuality. Opening reception for Love Letters :: Messages Received will be held Saturday March 2nd, 7–10PM, and will be on view to the public 12–4 on Saturdays in March at the Washington Street Art Center - http://washingtonst.org. Recipient of a 2013 multidisipline artist fellowship from the Somerville Arts Council and the Massachusetts Cultural Council, Falco will be creating, presenting, teaching, and writing throughout 2013.
