We all know the old saying, “a picture is worth a thousand words.”

The adage was first said by Henrik Ibsen, and was a little different than what we know now: “a thousand words leave not the same deep impression as does a single deed.” Over the years, through translations and appropriations, the exact wording has changed, but the sentiment remains the same: complex or nuanced feelings and thoughts can sometimes best be summed up in a single image.

How do you use art to express what is too complex for words alone?

Exhibits at Arts Center East are free and open to the public. We are grateful for the support from our community and visitors.
