“Writing's just drawing in different apparel, and drawing is another way of writing.”—Jean Cocteau This exhibition explores the relationship between language and visual art through the words and images of 12 nationally and internationally known writers at various points in their careers. Among them are poets, fiction writers, essayists, editors, and translators.

In November of 2014, each participating writer was given two 5.5” x 8.5” sheets of white writing paper. Each was asked to use only marks, lines, and visuals on one sheet and only language (words, sentences, etc.) on the other. The premise that would guide the work they produced is the Jean Cocteau quote above.
