Gallery Revisited stands by ARTpage because the Zine itself acts as a portable gallery.

Much like a show catalog, viewers can carry it with them to read at any convenient time, in any comfortable place.

The theme “Lyrics & Dialogue” is the 3rd in the curation series topics the gallery is pursuing this year. ARTpage is befitting to the premise because it sustains a literal & figurative interpretation of Art Dialogue & Musical Lyrics (or lack thereof).
