Inside-OUT gallery July exhibit featuring the Artisan's Asylum

"The creative process is not like a situation where you get struck by a single lightning bolt. You have ongoing discoveries, and there's ongoing creative revelations. Yes, it's really helpful to be marching toward a specific destination, but, along the way, you must allow yourself room for your ideas to blossom, take root, and grow." - Carlton Cuse

Somerville is well-known for its creative innovation that is “rooted” in industry. In response, this year’s ArtBeat theme, “ROOTS”, the collective members of the Artisan’s Asylum pay tribute to this rich history. Roots and maps circulate each window, weaving together moments of the past and present. Snapshots from the days of the Derby Desk company to cheeky robots, kinetic paintings and abstract sculpture create a wonderful montage that is truly an ode to our roots.
 
Many thanks to the contributing artists and organizers who made this exhibit possible.
