With Word and Song


The work in this show traces her interest and intrigue With Word and Song, using elements from Biblical texts, ancient Hebrew, and musical facsimiles. She finds a source of mystery in the evolution of the word, visiblly recorded and presented historically in a variety of ways.

This exhibition includes two important series form Sandra Bowden's art. One part of the show includes collagraphs, paintings and collages that incorporate musical facsimiles, and the remainder has her most beloved textural pieces, including some of her new artist's books. She views the musical score as a kind of language that transcends languages and also sees music as one of the most rich historical influences of the chuch in culture.

Sandra Bowden's work is a complex meditation on time, incorporating Biblical archaeological references and ancient text in her art. The mystery of the word as a vehicle of communication across generations has been an important component of her personal iconography, using segments of language and text as design within the image. Her visual imagery is a provocative example of art centered both figuratively and literally in word.


With Word and Song has approximately 38 works (more can be arranged). There is a charge of $250 for this exhibition which can be applied toward the purchase of art. Each venue is responsible for shipping.
