Signs can be art, but they are also highly functional. They can inform, warn, advertise, and guide. Some are iconic, while others are static. For CO Exhibitions' latest gallery show, "Sign Related," four local sign artists will exhibit their signage in some capacity. As with any art form, each artist lends a distinct style to his work. Dan Madsen, a third-generation sign maker, uses paints to create classic and eye-catching designs. Peyton Scott Russell explores typography and graffiti aesthetics to create his pieces. Matt Thompson prefers to work with neon lights, and Ben Janssens is drawn to aluminum and paint. There will be an opening reception from 7 to 10 p.m. Saturday, January 26.
