The theme for the exhibit is works that incorporate letters, words or text; makes literarty references or tells a visual story.

The exhibit will have some diverse work, such as the words and photograph that Stan Kuran, a Southern California photographer, who is so well known for combining to create visual/verbal images, to the singular images, like that of Jim McKinniss made in Cuba recently, that tell a story.
