The Marriage of Art & Text

Current Show: December 3 - January 30
Friday, January 7th, 6:30-9:30
(See Special Events page for art walk night details)

The blending of text and art has taken many forms—calligraphy, poster art, photography, the pages of artists’ journals, collage, and the use of letters and numbers as abstract design elements. All these and more are explored in this fascinating exhibit.

Featured is a series of twelve calligraphic paintings by Sherrie Lovler, entitled Two as One, inspired by the love poems shared between her and former Fairfield resident Tony Lawlor. Sherrie is known internationally for creating art that integrates words and images in unique combinations of contemporary designs and traditional techniques. She and Tony both live in the San Francisco Bay area.
In addition, the show includes a wonderful range of works by many Fairfield artists who have made text a part of their art.
