The reception will take place on March 15 at 4:30 to 6:30 pm. and the show will be in the gallery from March 9 to April 18.

The juror for the show is Fred Giampietro of Fred Giampietro Gallery in New Haven. The theme is in coordination with the library’s One Book One Town annual event and includes works in many media and styles. All works include text and all are for sale.

The juror reviewed over 100 entries and selected only 23 pieces. He says that he chose work for SPEECHLESS that either “…had a clear voice as well as the text being carefully integrated in an abstract sense. On the other extreme, where the text becomes the work.”

Those juried into the show are: Barbara Gray, Randi Nussbaum, Michael Norris, Janet Lage, Mary Jo McGonagle, Elizabeth Nagle, Lynne Arovas, Sharon Coffin, David Fodor, Lee Ann Gulash, Bruce Epstein, Ryan Crudgington, Florence Minnis, Eva Horowitz, Joseph Wardwell, Joseph Saccio, Lisa Hess Hesselgrave, and Katie Samuelson.
