The artwork in the exhibit moves beyond conventional pairings of text and illustration and features artists who create encounters of words and image that turn their work into neither text nor image, but fresh composites that churn up something new.

“Our show focuses on women artists, whose voices have often been marginalized. We speak from lives in multiple worlds and invent fresh ways to speak through our art. We reach for the power of words, letting our art, as well as ourselves, be truly seen as well as heard,” expresses exhibiting artist Susan Armington who worked with fellow artist Hend Al-Mansour to organize the show.

The overarching aim of Breath of Words is for women artists to innovate and provoke new approaches to telling their stories through art. They ask themselves, what are the issues that haunt and concern us and how can we use words and texts expressively to activate thought and feeling in our work?

Exhibiting Artists are Hend Al-Mansour, Susan Armington, Robyn Awend, Rani Halpern, Nina Ghanbarzadeh, Fawzia Khan and Anna Metcalfe.

“Using my experiences and the surroundings I inhabit—both permanent and temporary—I create pieces that study the question: How are we connected to nature?” says Jennifer Anderson. “This question is explored and expressed with the joy and beauty of nature and their intricate networks, but also the pain and heartbreak from our impact and demands.”

Anderson’s showcased work is primarily executed in oil paint, collage and mixed media, watercolor and ink.

“My interest in used or abused materials is central to my work,” says K. Daphnae Koop. “It is an expression both of the life and beauty that exists in the ordinary, and of notions of reclamation and rebirth. The combination of carved texture, rich color, and sparkle of shattered glass acts as a visual reminder of the spirit and light that flows through each of us.”

Koop’s showcased work is primarily executed in recycled and rough milled woods and shattered glass. “The inspiration for my work lies in the materials: the castaway and the broken. These things form the detritus of our world, and carry the dirt and scars of their history with them,” says Koop.

Kat Nottingham is best known for her waterscape paintings in oil on canvas. Nottingham’s artwork reflects her reverence for the vastness, power, and beauty of nature. “In each of my paintings, I try to celebrate moments of precious beauty: a tree reflecting on water, the crest of a wave just before crashing on the beach, sunlight dancing across a still lake at sunrise,” she says.

Amy Usdin weaves abstract mental and physical landscapes onto aging fishing nets and nets meant to keep insects off horses. “By giving these once-functional nets new volume, I honor the revolving intersections of past and present,” Usdin says. “What began as autobiographical meditation has evolved into work that more broadly speaks to histories, loss and longing, and exists in other realms of interpretive possibilities.”

“Using my experiences and the surroundings I inhabit—both permanent and temporary—I create pieces that study the question: How are we connected to nature?” says Jennifer Anderson. “This question is explored and expressed with the joy and beauty of nature and their intricate networks, but also the pain and heartbreak from our impact and demands.”

Anderson’s showcased work is primarily executed in oil paint, collage and mixed media, watercolor and ink.

“My interest in used or abused materials is central to my work,” says K. Daphnae Koop. “It is an expression both of the life and beauty that exists in the ordinary, and of notions of reclamation and rebirth. The combination of carved texture, rich color, and sparkle of shattered glass acts as a visual reminder of the spirit and light that flows through each of us.”

Koop’s showcased work is primarily executed in recycled and rough milled woods and shattered glass. “The inspiration for my work lies in the materials: the castaway and the broken. These things form the detritus of our world, and carry the dirt and scars of their history with them,” says Koop.

Kat Nottingham is best known for her waterscape paintings in oil on canvas. Nottingham’s artwork reflects her reverence for the vastness, power, and beauty of nature. “In each of my paintings, I try to celebrate moments of precious beauty: a tree reflecting on water, the crest of a wave just before crashing on the beach, sunlight dancing across a still lake at sunrise,” she says.

Amy Usdin weaves abstract mental and physical landscapes onto aging fishing nets and nets meant to keep insects off horses. “By giving these once-functional nets new volume, I honor the revolving intersections of past and present,” Usdin says. “What began as autobiographical meditation has evolved into work that more broadly speaks to histories, loss and longing, and exists in other realms of interpretive possibilities.”
