Whitdel Arts is proud to present Just My Type. This exhibition features artwork that focuses on, as well as incorporates, typefaces and letterforms. The letterform is an entity we interact with every day, most often without as much as a second thought; an artform hiding in plain sight. The way a statement is read can be influenced by the anatomy of the letters that spell it out, from the transition of serifs and slabs, to the shape of the tittle dotting the “i.” What began as hand-drawn symbols later became mass produced via the printing press and now text can be manipulated with software offering hundreds of options. Now we ask – What’s your type? Whether the typeface is used as a means of communication, or celebrated in its purest form, Just My Type showcases it.
Please join us for an opening reception for the artists on Friday, February 12, 2016.
