I’m also pleased to be featured in the current Whitdel Arts e-newsletter.

Reception: Friday, February 12, 7:00-10:00pm
Jurors: Joel Grothaus and Lee Marchalonis of Signal Return

Whitdel Arts is proud to present Just My Type.  This exhibition features artwork that focuses on, as well as incorporates, typefaces and letterforms. The letterform is an entity we interact with every day, most often without as much as a second thought; an Adventures of IO lo resartform hiding in plain sight. The way a statement is read can be influenced by the anatomy of the letters that spell it out, from the transition of serifs and slabs, to the shape of the tittle dotting the “i.”  What began as hand-drawn symbols later became mass produced via the printing press and now text can be manipulated with software offering hundreds of options.
