About the exhibition: An excerpt from Cather's 1915 novel The Song of the Lark serves as a textual basis for a series of drawings that explore the subjects of collaboration, identity, and ambition through the physical imposition of translucent drawings on hand-rendered text.

About the artist: Elysia Mann is a talented artist that works with lettering and printmaking. She acquired her BFA in printmaking at Washington University in St. Louis in 2007 and plans on continuing her studies at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, in 2017. She is interested in linguistics and preservation and these interests inspire her work. She has borrowed ideas from medieval painting, silver photography, and classical book typography.
