"Childhood(The Boat)" by Andrea Buzzichelli will be featured at the Nave Gallery Annex during the Somerville Toy Camera Festival
We are proud to be a supporter of the 2015 Somerville Toy Camera Festival! In it’s 3rd year running, the team that puts on this marvelous, analogue photography driven extravaganza is bringing exhibitions, photography events and panel discussions to celebrate the art of all things lo-fi photography. Jam packed with work selected by Juror Aline Smithson, the over 100 artists shown between the Festival's 3 locations will bolster your love for photography and surprise you with the immense variety and beautiful imagery that can come out of a toy camera. From holgas to lomos to self-made pinhole cameras, ‘toy camera’ seems like a simplification for artists that are attracted to making pieces without control, and enjoying the results in the beautiful unknown that will be on display.
"Ungaurded Area" by Toy Camera Festival Juror Aline Smithson
We at Panopticon look forward to the festival every year, as we get to work with some of the artists on their prints and framing presentation. Let’s be honest, the opening receptions are also some of the most fun! Between the Nave Gallery in Somerville’s Teele Square, the Nave Annex in Davis Square and the Washington Street Art Center outside of Union Square, you will not be at a loss for stimulating exhibitions to see.
"Spring Time" by Francine Weiss will be featured at the Washington Street Art Center.
The openings for the festival will run the weekend of September 10-13. This year also has the exciting addition of workshops and an artist panel discussion! Please check out all of the STCF events as they get closer on their website, and enjoy the great photography with us!
