From Robert Indiana’s “Love,” to Barbara Kruger’s “Untitled (Your Body is a Battleground,)” to  Wayne White’s Comical “Shitshow at Sea,” text has played a pivotal role in contemporary art, often highlighting the power and weight of words. While crossword puzzles have been a staple for nearly a century, recent years gave rise to games like Wordle and Connections, emphasizing the power and association of words.

We’re in search of 4 to 6 artists who take on this theme literally – aesthetically and creatively for both an online feature, which will run on Artsy and our Website from August 1st – 31st.

treat gallery has a proven track record of helping others through contemporary art. We donate 15-100% of sales to a nonprofit in every project we take on. We partner with like-minded professionals and businesses with a shared goal of making the contemporary art field more honest and tangible. We have placed work in major public and private collections and specialize in affordable, contemporary art by emerging artists.

For In Writing, 20% of Sales will be donated to Worldreader a nonprofit whose mission is to get children in underdeveloped countries reading so they reach their full potential. Worldreader is an international nonprofit organization headquartered in the US with representation in Kenya, Spain, and the UK, working with partners to get children reading at least 25 books a year with understanding, because readers grow up to have better educational outcomes, higher earning potential, and emotional intelligence.
