In times of chaos and upheaval, creative people often turn to the most powerful tool available: the written word. The six artists in this group exhibition at WAS gallery entitled “T.N.T. Text.” are no exception. Some use words aggressively and publicly, others subtly and privately. Some look outward to the world around them and some look inward to the private world we create within ourselves. The text the artists choose to use becomes another tool in their arsenal, seamlessly integrating with all the other visual elements they incorporate, and not simply something they fall back on. The six artists in this group show at WAS gallery approach their content differently, but they all have one thing in common: they treat their studio not as a bunker, but as a war room.
WAS gallery hours: Saturdays 2-6pm and by appointment 5110 Ridgefield Road, 2nd Floor, Bethesda, MD 20816
