    Opening Reception: Ineffable

    Alumni Room Gallery, Tuohy Hall

    St. Joseph’s College Council for the Arts Brooklyn presents:


    Curated by Joseph and Audrey Anastasi, (Tabla Rasa Gallery)

    Among the great pleasures of visiting exhibitions are the conversations stimulated by looking at art.

    Yet, by definition, visual communication is wordless, ineffable. Even when a work incorporates text, or “readable” iconography, the verbal message is only part of the experience. Enjoyment of the works featured in this exhibition depends largely upon the viewers ability to simply allow the images to reach us without words. The intuitive right-brain engages in a non-linear way of thinking. There is visual and intellectual engagement without sole dependence upon sequential or logical flow. Although an artist may have a direction, a clear and intentional purpose in creating a work of art, here, the richness of the works also resonate in concert with the artists’ subconscious intellect.  That which “cannot be spoken“ can still communicate …. strongly….
