Art + Text: Images, Concepts, and Insights

This CIVA exhibit traveled from 2010 to 2012. The exhibit is now archived and no longer available for rental, but the images and information are provided below for reference. VIsit our Traveling Exhibits page to find out more about CIVA’s shows that are currently available for rental.

This exhibit brings together sculptors, painters, photographers, graphic artists, mixed media, installation, and video artists who explore a variety of ways to use art and text to express their personal attitudes, opinions, and faith. Text, in this exhibit, is used neither as a medium of literal description nor an explication of doctrine, rather, words and “the word” are employed figuratively. This shift from the literal to the figurative places the responsibility of interpretation primarily on the viewer. Borrowing a page from conceptual and post-conceptual tenets, predominance is placed on the idea and the artists serve as facilitators who lead their viewers to a place of introspection.
