Words Matter

February 19th - June 13, 2015

Opening Reception: March 5, 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.

Robert Koch Gallery presents Words Matter, an exhibition that features a wide spectrum of work by twelve artists who incorporate text with images. The works of art range from WWII political photo-collages by Russian artist Alexander Zhitomirsky (b. 1907-d. 1993), to Robert Heinecken's groundbreaking Are You Rea, Jeff Brouws's typologies of American roadside signs, and Hugh Brown's dry wit appropriations of Barbara Kruger and Roy Lichtenstein. The dynamic interplay of text with images results in augmented meanings and impact for both the words as well as the images.

Featuring work by:
Jeff Brouws, Hugh Brown, TR Ericsson, Elliott Erwitt, Steve Fitch, Robert Heinecken, Shai Kremer, Jan Lukas, Bill Owens, Brian Ulrich, Michael Wolf, and Alexander Zhitomirsky
