Artists reception for 'Words'

A reception will be held 5 - 7 p.m. Sept. 11 for "Words as Images," which continues through Oct. 11, The Gallery at Penn State Lehigh Valley, Center Valley, Upper Saucon Township.

Exhibiting artists include Michael Albert, Vicki DaSilva, Christina Galbiati, Naomi Grossman, Robert Jackson and Julie Miller.

The exhibit includes the work of artists who often use text to express visual images and ideas. The words are presented in a visual context encouraging the viewer to look closer into the image and probe its meaning.

Coinciding with the exhibition is a campus mural project led by New York artists Naomi Grossman and Michael Albert created by students, faculty and staff using fashioned and found text and images. A time-released photographic project will be completed to show the progression of the project from start to finish.

The exhibit and reception are free and open to the public.
