The SMC Art Gallery

Currently on Display

A Little History: SMC Through the Years
Gallery Dates: February 1 – March 31

The photos currently on display in the SMC Art Gallery are staff-selected frame captures from member productions of yesteryear. We think these selections not only represent the spirit of Somerville community media (or public access as it was known in the beginning) but also capture the nostalgia for the 1980’s, 1990’s and 2000’s. An accompanying timeline helps to place these images within the history of SMC and community access.

Location and Gallery Hours

The SCATV Gallery is located at 90 Union Square, Somerville, MA. The SMC Art Gallery is open during SMC hours of operation:  Monday – Friday Noon to 10:00 PM & Saturday 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM and closed Sunday and Holidays.


Want to Showcase your Artwork?
