Sham-A-Ling-Dong-Ding, an exhibition of recent work by Randy Twaddle, will be on view at Moody Gallery.

For Sham-A-Ling-Dong-Ding, Twaddle will be showing new paintings on paper that derived from a series of small, sketchbook "devotionals" that Twaddle undertook at his dining table over a period of 18 months. Those ballpoint pen drawings consisted of self-authored aphorisms and malapropisms, for example, "The universe hears you better when you whisper." "Where there's a will there's a weight," rendered in a cursive script framed by idiosyncratic cartouche-shapes, and surrounded by multi-directional sets of parallel lines. Though those "devotional" texts are the basis for the work in Sham-A-Ling-Dong-Ding, they have been relegated to a functional status as titles for the paintings, and their words have been replaced by circles of various sizes and colors, set within a ground of poured coffee and lines drawn in ink.

Following the artist reception, the exhibit will be on display through July 2.
