Artist’s Reception: Seeing Words, Asemic Art by Sally Van Doren – Library
Art Show and Sale: Seeing Words, Asemic Art by Sally Van Doren. Artist’s Reception November 11, 5pm to 7 pm, including poetry reading and artist’s talk at 6 pm. In Seeing Words, her upcoming show at The Cornwall Library, artist Sally Van Doren presents a selection of works on paper that explore the conceptual terrain created when words become image. An acclaimed poet, her drawings, paintings, prints and poems arise from the same source, thousands of pages of illegible handwriting, also known as asemic drawing. Seeing Words offers new drawings from her Anagram Series as well as asemic works. Van Doren works with materials including stencils, graphite, colored pencil, ink, marker, oil pastel and spray paint. She says “I find that between writing legible poetry and making illegible visual art, I vacillate constantly between being in a state of losing language and a state of finding it.”
The show runs through December 30. Registration is requested for the opening at cornwalllibrary.org.
