Word for Word: Four Artists in Conversation


Beginning on June 16th and continuing throughout the summer of 2022, four book artists will commune at Bromer Gallery for “Word for Word: Four Artists in Conversation,” an exhibition devoted to the art of language. Sarah Hulsey, Thomas Ingmire, Margaret Shepherd, and Marianne Perlak each individually, and now as a collective, plumb the depths of the English language, dissecting its roots and imagining its typographic and linguistic possibilities. There is among them the delicate handwork of calligraphy and collage, the bold styles inherent in woodcut and letterpress printing, and the comprehensive textuality and tactility of books. From line to letter, letter to word, and word to language, each piece on display wells up with how we speak and are spoken to, and how we write and how we read.

For further information, please contact the gallery at (617) 247-2818 or books@bromer.com.

Hours: Monday – Friday, 9:30 am – 5:00 pm

Bromer Gallery is located at 607 Boylston Street, Second Floor, Boston, MA 02116
