INVENTORY, BY ADAM H. MARCHAND, AN INSTALLATION OPENING AT THE WASHINGTON STREET ART CENTER, 10 NOVEMBER SOMERVILLE, Mass. — With Inventory, Adam H. Marchand has cataloged thirty years’ worth of his possessions on index cards. On each card (there are 2,500) he has typed brief narrative about how the item came into his life. The items range from bookmarks to bicycles to bike saddles — and everything in between. The cards are organized according to a serial number scheme, and are held in a card catalog that Adam built. Photographs of the items hang on the walls of the gallery. Visitors are invited to cross-reference photo of the items with the cards in the catalog according to their serial numbers.  Inventory will be on view at Gallery 321,n Washington Street Art Center, 321D Washington St. Somerville, MA 02143, from November 10 to December 1. Gallery hours are Saturdays from noon to 4:00 p.m., and by appointment.
