Words, letters, symbols, and numbers are the basic building blocks of communication. AAWS will showcase artwork from our membership who incorporate, merge and juxtapose these elements into their artwork. Art is a language all its own that unites us all and we look forward to displaying thoughtful works of art which utilize these elements of communication to further their creative efforts.

Artwork entered into this exhibition must incorporate images or ideas associated with words, letters, symbols, and numbers. Examples of work that is eligible for this exhibition include typography, illustration, or paintings that use words, letters, and symbols as graphic elements. Sculptures that incorporate language in form and surface treatments. We look forward to showing your work and if you have any questions about how your work can fit into the theme of the show please ask.
