Word & Hand

Our May Artist of the Month is the Word and Hand Project. It is a collaborative process between Wilsonville High School students and Catlin Gabel High School students.

Eight artists are paired with eight writers. They send their work back and forth, communicating only via the creative process. Each person keeps a journal, recording their thoughts, ideas, and questions. The pairs only meet at the end of the process. The Word and Hand Project is a very creative way to combine the art of words with the art of color, paint, ink, and collage.

You might want to take your time exploring the examples of this amazing project.

Exhibits are on the Art Wall and on panels in the fiction reading area. There will be a reception on Sunday, May 17, from 4-7 pm in the library.
