In Other Words is a group exhibition featuring the work of seven artists who are fascinated with letters and language. Viewers are challenged to consider words and text not only as a means of gaining and dispersing information, but as visual representations of human thoughts and emotions. The works on view range from photographs of vintage and out-of-print books, sculptural works made of repurposed to-do lists, and canvases embroidered with braille text. These vastly different materials and techniques all contribute to a celebration of the varied methods of visual communication.
SAM is funded in part by The Arts Partnership of Greater Spartanburg and its donors, the County and City of Spartanburg, and the South Carolina Arts Commission which receives support from The National Endowment for the Arts.
