A Talk by Julia Hensley, with John Boylan
Geo Studio, 3rd floor | FREE
Artist statements, curator notes, wall texts, visitor guides and reviews each serve a purpose, but how does their presence affect how we encounter visual art? What is the relationship of written and spoken language to silent, visual language; and how do words influence both the viewer’s experience and the artist’s process?
August 2 - September 6
Open daily 10am - 6pm
The Steele Gallery

For an artist curating her first show, seeing new work by esteemed peers in your inbox is like getting presents when it's not your birthday.
The artists in this show rose to the challenge of creating works entirely in black or white, which I'm installing as metaphors for polarized viewpoints, connected by works in grey, which represent the possibility for compromise, mutuality and commonality.
I'm excited and honored to share the results with you in the beautiful Steele Gallery at Gage Academy. Please join me for the opening!
I'll also be giving a talk, so stop in to the Geo Studio at 7 for Visual | Verbal, moderated by writer, provocoteur and seasoned facilitator of roundtable conversations, John Boylan.
