DESCRIPTION

The Painting Center is pleased to announce the exhibition, The Writing on the Wall, running from June 23 through July 18, 2015. Writing is a subversive activity, the marker of both the rise of civilization and its decadence. It is used to express, sell, persuade, calculate, entertain and understand. Visual art that incorporates writing engages the viewer on multiple fronts, where letters, numerals or scribbles bridge the divide between mark making and narrative meaning. This exhibition presents a diverse group of artists exploring the meaning and uses of text in a variety of media, and features a full-color catalog with essay written by the artist Karen Schiff. Curated by member artists Susan Post, Colleen Randall and Patricia Spergel.
