> DESCRIPTION

An International Exhibit of Works Involving Text or Letterforms

Not long after humanity began drawing, drawings evolved into writing. Pictures became symbols, abstraction blossomed, and language became visual. Two branches, sharing one root, carried forward people's ideas, feelings, and plans. The visual and the verbal arts shared the role of encapsulating civilization's data. And they continue to do so today, in so many wondrous and varied ways. TEXTUALITY is an exhibit that inquires into the overlap of these two branches, seeking examples of where the verbal is made visual, where language returns into image.

Fifteen works by 13 artists from Alabama, Arizona, California, Georgia, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, New York, North Carolina, Virginia, Canada, and Germany were selected for presentation in the gallery and catalog.
