From curator LF:

SILENT SHOUT is comprised of a group of eight artists with diverse practices. Silently, and subtly they work with their hands, but their art shouts back at you. Using quiet humor, strong palettes, and repetitious mark making; these artists express an experimental urgency and overall joy in the creative process. Their work reverberates as if it were a strong shout from the artist’s inner core.”
