The exhibition is curated by Jan Ziegler and the title refers to the silent tone that these three artist’s works cumulatively express. Rick Doehring, who is both a painter and a writer, shares his life experiences and cerebral play through non-objective abstract paintings. His titles give the viewer clues on what to contemplate while viewing the work. Patricia Post works figuratively. Many of her paintings selected for this exhibit have no faces, expressing themselves with body language and palette. Tom Post‘s large abstract canvases explore relationships. His intriguing forms seem to be engaged in conversation, or silent communication on another level.
Opening reception for A Thousand Words is on Friday, March 31 from 5 to 8 p.m., with the artists being introduced at 6 p.m. The exhibition will run through May 21.
