Weyrich presents the "Shape of Language". New work by artists Meredith W. McPherson (Sumi Calligraphy) and Harriette Tsosie (Painting).
Tsosie states: "My work is invariably about identity, which I see as shaped by language, genetics and place. The language aspect is my main focus. Language embodies culture. Written language records human thought. The shape of language is fascinating and beautiful to me."

Meredith W. McPherson states: "Traces of black ink flying across white paper enables me to express my interpretation of ancient sacred symbols and then release those images to the custody of the art viewers who reinterpret the symbols through their own personal cultural lens."
