New Exhibition Opens: Rethinking Lines

Fenwick Gallery is pleased to host Mel Parada’s Rethinking Lines, an exhibition of typographic prints and paintings. The exhibition is open through Saturday, October 6. An artist’s talk is scheduled for Wednesday, September 26 at 11 a.m. in the Fenwick Main Reading Room.

Rethinking Lines examines the possibilities of meaning making and attempts to remove narrative from communication design through visual treatments that involve the deconstruction of typography, reconfigured grid systems, scale, and color theory. The work embodies theoretical approaches found in the Minimalist movement as well as abstraction movements like De Stijl and Constructivism.

Mel Parada holds an MFA from the School of Art at George Mason University, where he also serves as an adjunct faculty member in graphic design.
