DESCRIPTION

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a few words can make a delightfully pretty picture. Baker's Dozen has of 13 fresh, diverse, and notable young artists visually exploring their favorite idiom. Idioms are playful expressions of any language. Consisting of phrases or sentences that do not literally mean what they say, illustrating them results in works that are visually striking, whimsical, humorous, and downright fun!

A range of aesthetics and mediums will be on display and include drawings, paintings, lithographs, paper-cuts and more.

Featured Artists: Ming Ong, You Byun, Brittney Lee, Matte Stephens, Dadu Shin, Catia Chien, Miki Sato, Nicole Gustafsson, Lorena Alverez, Ahren Hertel, Nico Duffaut, and Daniela Volpari
