In its early years, the Nave Gallery Annex was a rooming house, welcoming strangers from near and far and providing affordable shelter for those in need of warmth and community.
Through knitted and crocheted items and a mix of fiber art and scenes from the ‘Ville, The Annex recreates this home space as a yarnstormed installation. Be prepared to never envision a home in quite the same way again.
This installation is part of the Wrap Around Project, the Nave Gallery’s yearlong campaign to support and promote the work of the Somerville Homeless Coalition (SHC). Affordable housing–or lack thereof–is one of the factors leading to the rise in homelessness in our communities. As our neighborhoods develop into economically strong cultural centers, those on the margins are pushed out, and are often left with few options for housing.
FILL OUR PANTRY:
Help us fill our pantry with items to give to the Somerville Homeless Coalition. Canned goods and other items are deeply appreciated.
