Text(iles): The Text is a Fabric features five artists whose work exposes the conceptual link between text and textile - both etymologically derived from the same root textere. The artists represent diverse approaches to making and explore various themes of translation, data visualization, measurement, coding, interconnectedness, and complex cultural histories. Despite these contrasts all point back to external textual references that directly inform the work. The source has been translated, as textile, and the network of thread become a text. 

The Earl & Virginia Green Art Gallery is located on the campus of Biola University in La Mirada, CA.

When visiting the Earl & Virginia Green Art Gallery, please enter campus at the main Biola University entrance on Biola Avenue. Parking for gallery visitors is free but you must obtain a visitor parking pass from the attendant at the entrance to campus.

The Earl & Virginia Green Art Gallery presents a program of rotating contemporary art exhibitions on the campus of Biola University. Located in the greater Los Angeles area, the Green Art Gallery is well positioned to represent a vital Christian worldview within the critical dialogue of contemporary visual art and to produce engaging exhibitions that grapple with issues concerning the intersection of faith with art and culture. The Green Art Gallery also provides professional development opportunities for Biola art students through gallery exhibitions and internships.

The Earl & Virginia Green Art Gallery was renovated and dedicated in September 2013. The gallery is named in memory of Earl and Virginia Green—the parents of Roberta Ahmanson—whose lives exemplified faith and commitment to their family, church, and community, and who inspired their daughter’s love of the arts as a person of faith. Biola University expresses profound appreciation to Howard and Roberta Ahmanson for their continued generosity in supporting arts programming at Biola.
