NIAD Gallery Reception // “Feeling Language” organized by Kate Laster

October 8, 2022, 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm

A graphic promoting an exhibition. Below a row of black cutout star shapes, in the top left of the image, in exuberant black text that has a hand-cut feel, are the words “Feeling Language” in all caps. Below, in the same font, a column lists the artists participating in the exhibition. Each word is separated by a diamond or a star shape. The upper right corner of the image features an artwork by Sara Malpass, credited in the bottom right corner: on a black page with faint white lines, holepunched on the right side, is a list in white handwritten cursive. Below that, in cut-out style font: “Opening Reception Sat Oct 8 1-4pm”

About the Exhibition

This show is all about comfort text: resilience in everyday words, writing and reading. Expression can also be wordless, the use of line and color as new vocabulary, pushing a thought out onto a surface, making marks and continuously trying to communicate with the world. 

We tell stories to sustain ourselves and find each other. These messages embedded in art become an emotional telegram– a signal flare with a flame of memory trailing behind it.  FEELING LANGUAGE is about books, lists, slogans, language, gesture, touch and the trust given in sharing.
