You are cordially invited to our Parsing Sign and Image Opening Reception. This open-juried exhibit sought submissions that consider the influence of letters, text, signs and language.

Juror: Kaveh Mojtabai, Founder and Publisher of Artscope Magazine.

Images have power to convey ideas across languages and cultures. Images can stand alone without relying on a literal translation. Today our visual fields are filled with imagery (television to Instagram) and a literate mind unconsciously reads text without considering it. You don't have to tell yourself to read a stop sign - you just do. From road signs and graffiti, to pop-up ads and text messages, we are constantly and instantaneously ingesting language and its message. How does the involuntary practice of reading, translating, influence the artistic practice? Can text itself stand as an image, or will our minds always connect to a literal meaning? Must a word always carry meaning, or can words and letters act as graphic elements of pattern and design?

Windsor Art Center Opens Art Quilt Exhibition 
The Windsor Art Center announces: Local Color: Inspired by Science,an exhibition of art quilts created by Connecticut members of Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA). An international organization, SAQA supports professional and avocational fiber artists and teachers. The artists of Local Color – some of whom come from science or technology backgrounds – explore the nexus between art and science both within their subjects and through their processes of creating these quilts. Demonstrating their perspective that art and science are not opposing disciplines, the artists have made works of art using traditional quilting techniques as well as photographic processes, illustration, and digital technology. The exhibition runs through Saturday, October 13, 2018.

Free Film Friday, September 21, 7:00 p.m.: Enjoy popcorn and pizza while watching a film about a young woman coping with a failed relationship.
