Visual art is a language all its own, but more than a dozen artists discuss and draw inspiration from language in a new exhibition at Art Intersection.

“Word Up: Artists Using Language” will showcase paintings, sculptures, printmaking, letterpress, and drawing from a collection of artists who have a connection to Arizona including Peter Bugg, Barbi Crisp, John Mann, Dan Mayer, John Randall Nelson, John Risseuw, Chris Rush, Rosalind Shipley, Diane Silver, Linda Smith, Buzz Spector, Ingrid Wells, and Kelsey Viola Wilskirchen. While the use of language varies ®C from “full bodies of literature to barely readable scribbling,” according to organizers, the approach and conversation is cohesive.

Sat., Sept. 1, 7-9 p.m.; Tuesdays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Starts: Sept. 1. Continues through Oct. 17, 2012
