Words with a View (Apr)

Words with a View
April 4-29, 2016
Reception: April 23, 2 to 4 p.m.

It has been said that “a picture is worth a thousand words.” This phrase supposedly came into use in early advertising and newspaper coverage of events to increase impact and save space. For “Words With A View”, artists are invited to create art that is inspired by words that have significantly touched them emotionally. The “words” may be a few lines of a favorite poem, a passage of prose, lyrics from a song, or a quote by someone admired. The words need not be well-known.
