When Words Fail (Expired)

About this Exhibit: How do we communicate when we cannot find the words? To verbalize a thought or feeling is an attempt to be understood, either by one’s self or by another. But some experiences seem to go beyond language. They are simply too big to be fully expressed in words. Or perhaps the words themselves are too difficult to speak out loud, so we create an alternative language – a visual language – to do the talking for us. For this upcoming exhibition, we are seeking work that represents these personal languages, the attempts to communicate and be understood without or beyond the need for words.

To submit your work visit:

We accept the following mediums: painting, photography, drawing, sculpture, digital, prints, fiber art, collage or installation art. We do not currently accept film or video at this time.

About our Guest Curator: Grace Lang is a multimedia artist based in upstate New York, where she creates both two and three-dimensional work to tell stories of triumph. Continually preoccupied with the concept of personal “demons,” her work reflects the internal struggles that plague us all, creating visual expressions of those dark little thoughts that are at once frightening and sort of funny. Much of her work stems from the belief that these personal demons are not necessarily enemies but, rather, aspects of our selves that can be utilized for good. This attitude informs her goals as an art educator, as she deeply trusts the transformative power a creative outlet can serve to help us express and communicate complicated experiences.
