Wedeman Gallery Hosts ART/Word Opening Reception, Exhibit

February 27, 2014

A collaboration of 25 artists featuring pieces inspired by their own or another's written correspondence - real or imagined - opens this weekend at the Wedeman Gallery.

On March 1, Lasell College will host an opening reception for the "Letters" exhibit beginning at 7 p.m. with a cabaret performance and a short film, Blank, produced by Lasell Graphic Arts Chair Professor Kenneth Calhoun and featuring Lasell Graphic Arts Professor, founder of ART/Word and actor Stephen Fisher.

The event will take place at Lasell's Wedeman Gallery in the Yamawaki Art and Cultural Center off Myrtle Ave.

"ART/Word is an artist collaborative first established in 1980. Each show begins with a theme and every artist is challenged to present a written text and a piece of visual art that illustrates or in some way relates to that written text," said Fisher.

More information about the exhibit and the collaborative can be found online.
