Art Spaces in Fairfield County Libraries, a consortium of 13 libraries that offer curated visual art exhibitions, is pleased to present “Art & Text,” a united exhibition featuring the work of local and regional artists. Each library within the consortium will highlight one or more artists, whose work reflects their unique perspectives on the exhibition’s theme. Through mixed media ranging from sculpture and painting to graphics, each library’s exhibition aims to promote awareness of visual arts in the libraries of Fairfield County, as well as foster a connection between the community it serves and the arts.

The Westport Library will host a joint public opening reception for its two Art & Text-related exhibits Friday, September 20th from 6-7:30 pm, in the Library’s Sheffer Room Gallery.

Nancy Landauer
After a long career in illustration and print design, Westport artist Nancy Landauerembarked on a creative journey exploring fine art, working now with mixed-media collage and with paintings composed as a collage and then fully painted with acrylics. Her work often has a retro look and always includes text to convey a narrative, simply add pattern and texture or create a mood in the pieces.

Talking Type: Ilene Strizver
Westport type expert, educator and author Ilene Strizver looks at the basic elements of typography and how the choice of font and text layout design are essential to successfully conveying a message. Strizver is founder of The Type Studio and author of Type Rules! The designer’s guide to professional typography.
