Cabrillo Gallery

Contextual: Visualizing Language

September 30–October 25, 2019

This exhibition features the work of seven artists who synthesize art and language: Joe Amrhein, Squeak Carnwath, Kevin B. Chen, Lalla Essaydi, Ward Schumaker, Sarah Swett, and Annie Vought. The medium and the message vary from one artist to the next, each of them combining the transcription of text with the visual vocabularies of their chosen art forms. Fictional fabrications, political and cultural commentary, philosophical musings, the "sign language" of advertising, and deeply personal familial tributes are expressed through painting, printmaking, drawing, tapestry, photography, collage, mixed media, and cut paper.
