“Text : Message” (The Alchemy of text-based Art) is a group exhibition of artists working in a variety of mediums and genres who incorporate, infuse, or solely utilize text in their art practice. Through their employment of language and letter as a form of concept and design, these artists cultivate an inherently transformative partnership of imagery and text, which poses the question- “does art enhance the power of text or does the presence of text enhance the power of art?” The exhibit will display a compelling array of contemporary text based works, encompassing a wide variety of themes and concepts. The works on view traverse diverse styles and sensibilities, and are delivered with skill, intelligence, wit, and innovation through a myriad of themes ranging from public to personal media including: illustration-pyrography (drawing with fire/heat), kinetic sculpture, collage, interactive installation, neon, L.E.D., video, sculpture, assemblage, painting, and photography.
