Sharon Arts Center, Main Gallery
September 6 – October 25, 2013

Opening Reception: September 6, 2013, 5–7pm

Whether it is repurposing found letters, bombastic political statements, documenting intimate details or elusively abstracting a phrase, text incorporated within art offers a profound purpose by both redefining our perception of what language can be and what it can do. Often, by manipulating its context, text is freed to become a vehicle that allows us to take into consideration what was previously concluded.
