CENTER VALLEY, Pa. – The Gallery at Penn State Lehigh Valley will host a new exhibition featuring the work of six artists. "Words as Images" runs Aug. 26-Oct. 11 with a reception from 5 to 7 p.m. on Sept. 11. The exhibit and reception are free and open to the public.

The exhibit will include the work of artists who often use text to express visual images and ideas. The words are presented in a visual context encouraging the viewer to look closer into the image and probe its meaning. Exhibiting artists include Michael Albert, Vicki DaSilva, Christina Galbiati, Naomi Grossman, Robert Jackson, and Julie Miller.

Coinciding with the exhibition is a campus mural project led by New York artists Naomi Grossman and Michael Albert that will be created by students, faculty and staff using fashioned and found text and images. A time-released photographic project will be completed to show the progression of the project from start to finish.
