TEXT: More than Something You Do on Your Phone

Do you text? I might as well ask, “Are you alive?” But the word “text” has a long and storied definition that mainly just means “words.” Tonight is your last chance to learn more about this ancient phenomenon at Soap Gallery‘s FREE TEXT exhibit.

Yes, you’ll have to read a lot in this exhibit, but the decent canvas of the white-walled space makes it easier. This exhibit of 15 artists examines the written word through a variety of media — cloth, paint, photography, etc. It appears to be a bit random and thrown-together, but that doesn’t exactly seem to be out of character for the gallery. That can be fun, right? Anyway, if it sucks, you can always salvage the trip by wandering over to the 3300 Club and binge drinking until you forget how to read.

Sarah M. Smart - Red-Light Special

Sarah M. Smart was summoned into being on a distant ice cream planet through an unholy union of Two-Buck Chuck and unicorns. They sent her to Indianapolis and then the University of Missouri's School of Journalism to spread peace and big hair. Perpetually in mourning for the comma, she has worked for a variety of print media, including Indianapolis Monthly, Global Journalist, and Vox. Since moving to San Francisco for the booming dumpster-diving scene, she has been an online operative for such fine folks as Horoscope.com , Neo-Factory, and Academy of Art University. After a day of cat-feeding, hat-making, dog-walking, vegan baking, and daydreaming about marrying rich, all she wants is a margarita as big as her face.
