I will be showing 2 artworks in this group exhibition, which opens tonight at Whitdel Arts. A couple of other talented artists of my acquaintance, Gabrielle Pescador and Parisa Ghaderi, are also in the show. I’m looking forward to seeing the other artists and their work!
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 artform 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.
