DESCRIPTION

Illustrated Type
May 14, 2011 - June 6, 2011
Opening Reception / May 14, 7:00PM - 11:00PM

Gallery Nucleus is pleased to present an exhibit celebrating hand drawn letterforms and experimental typography. Parallel to increasingly computer-driven imagery, it is both refreshing and encouraging to see the resurgence of working by hand—as well as an expanding community that finds value in this practice.

We have invited over 30 illustrators, graphic designers, sculptors, printmakers, and painters to interpret the alphabet, and are thrilled to showcase work at which art and design intersect. This collection explores how typography (even when reduced to a single letterform!) can be whimsical and bizarre, innovative and thought-provoking, and most importantly, downright fun!
