April 4 – June 30, 2017

Women Painters of Washington (WPW) present a brand new show at the WPW Seattle gallery located in the Columbia Center Building.

From cave walls to bathroom stalls, humans have used text to communicate ideas and emotions for millennia.  Twenty-six artists in this show incorporate all manner of “writing” in their artwork including handwritten or printed symbols, words, numbers, legible or illegible, in English and other languages, modern and ancient.

The deft integration of creative “writing” by artists into their compositions adds intriguing design components to diverse works on paper, canvas, and panel. Use your own lenses of experience to decipher the artists’ glyphs.  For a good “read,” plan a trip to the gallery soon!
