The exhibition runs August 26th - October 11, 2013; the opening reception is Wednesday, Sept 11th; 5-7pm at Penn State Lehigh Valley.
This exhibition features artists who often use text to express visual images and ideas. The words are presented in a visual context encouraging the viewer to look closer into the image and probe their meaning.
During the exhibition, a mural will be created using text and images that will be fashioned and found.

My artist statement: I am enamored with tactile forms of communication and have created a deeply personal aesthetic journey of photocopying words and sometimes images, to create unique patterns, then hand-tear the resulting paper palette to form my collage. The unexpected outcome of rough edges, uneven tones, broken lines and dot patterns that arise from the xerography process are intentional — my work symbolizes the importance of print media communication despite society’s increasing reliance on intangible, digital forms of communication.
