The artists in Word Dance have all developed a distinctly individual language for drawing that invites viewers into their private world. The works-on-paper from JoAnn Gonzalez Hickey’s collection that have been chosen for this exhibition are all concerned with words, letters or a connection with language. There is a rhythm and movement in these works. Permeating these pieces is lightness and energy with the suggestion of dance moves—hence the exhibition title, Word Dance.

An exhibition brochure is available to download (PDF).
