NIAD Gallery Exhibition // “Feeling Language,” organized by Kate Laster

NIAD Art Center 551 23rd Street, Richmond, CA

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.

NIAD Annex Exhibition // “A Not So Common Iguana and Other Tails”

NIAD Art Center 551 23rd Street, Richmond, CA

"This collection presents tapestries woven in wool by me, Janet Moore, after those delightful paintings by NIAD artist Saul Alegria. Saul works at NIAD in the large, shared studio space. I worked there as an artist mentor and instructor in the textiles department. Saul’s renderings of animals delighted me. One of my first thoughts on seeing his work was that they would translate very well in tapestry as they were quite graphic in nature, showed his interest in text and language, had unique color combinations, and expressed a range of emotions that were quite surprising. I decided to ask Saul if he would like to see his paintings woven, and he said yes."
