In the Gallery at R&F:
Snippets: Visual Text, a group exhibition of works by six visual artists (two of which are also poets working collaboratively on a visual project). The show will run from February 4th through March 24th, 2012.
Snippets is a group exhibition that looks at a variety of ways that artists use text, or allow their work to reference and be informed by words as the building blocks for an object or image. The featured artists approach text in a variety of ways; as pure matter, as metaphor, as specific content, as texture or atmosphere, and as concept. By bringing these different but related works together, Snippets presents a visual conversation between the participating artists on these same issues, connecting through ideas of language.
The artists include Kristy Deetz (Wisconsin), Anne Gorrick (West Park, New York) & Scott Helmes (Minnesota), Kathy Miller (California), Graceann Warn (Michigan), and Daniella Woolf (California).
