A Thousand Words Exhibit Opens at Apex Gallery

RAPID CITY, S.D. (Jan. 5, 2017) – The South Dakota School of Mines & Technology will open a new exhibit, “A Thousand Words,” by artist Len Davis on Monday, Jan. 9, in the Apex Gallery on campus.

The artist’s reception will be from 5-7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 13, with a gallery talk at 6 p.m. The exhibit will run through Monday, Feb. 20.

The exhibit showcases 100 collages incorporated with drawings of people’s faces on newsprint pages.

“When looking at a person’s facial expression, you can tell how they’re feeling at that particular moment. Whereas text, words (and) verbiage … explain it for you. (These) collages/drawings explore the interplay between the figurative and the literal … illustrating the fact that a picture is worth a thousand words,” Davis said.
