“What is this train track that de Kooning is speaking of that millions of artists are on?… maybe he’s talking about a visual language… this language is ever evolving. It is complex and simple, it has rules and no rules, it is as unique as one individual artist and it is universal.” —Professor Collier Parker
From April 11th to June 6th, 2022, a new exhibit, Exploring Visual Language, is on view at The Maslow Study Gallery, located in the lobby of the Shields Center for Visual Arts at Marywood University. This exhibit explores artists from all throughout history who have used visual language in their art to express their ideas, feelings, and messages. The exhibit has been created in collaboration with Professor Collier Parker’s drawing and painting classes this semester.
The gallery has descriptions and information on each artist to explore in the Maslow and further words from Professor Parker on this insightful exhibition. Below are some pieces on exhibit in this show.
