mitchellgalleryThe Mitchell Gallery at St. John’s College invites the community to the “Dialogues: Words and Images in Art, 1500-1924” exhibition from January 31 through April 6. This exhibition surveys the history of the word-image relationship in art from the Renaissance to the aftermath of the First World War. The exhibition will encompass simple titles for works of art, the inclusion of words within images, literary descriptions of objects, visual illustrations of texts, and embedded texts inseparable from images. As part of the opening reception, Art Educator Lucinda Edinberg will lead a tour of the exhibition, followed by a hands-on workshop. Families are welcome to the opening reception, which will be held on February 2 from 3:30 to 5 p.m.

This exhibition is curated by David Gariff, senior lecturer at the National Gallery of Art, with assistance from Mitchell Gallery Art Educator Lucinda Edinberg.
