Usually visual images get the spotlight at art exhibits, while small, subtle labels or placards of text provide basic information about the piece.
Artlink gallery's new “Letters.Words.Books. Exhibition” puts the focus on the written word.
The exhibit, which opens with a reception 6-9 p.m. Saturday, features original typography (letters, fonts or words), handmade books, repurposed books made into a 3-D sculptural form, carvings in books, repurposed book pages, artful sketchbooks and more.
Artlink, which is located in the Auer Center for Arts and Culture, 300 E. Main St., also will open two other exhibits Saturday in smaller spaces adjoining its main gallery: “A Celebration of Freedom” and “Artwork by Audrey Riley.” All three exhibits continue through Nov. 28.
Admission is free for members and a $2 suggested donation for nonmembers. Gallery hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday-Friday, noon-6 p.m. Saturday and noon-5 p.m. Sunday. For information, call 424-7195 or go to www.artlinkfw.com.
