Dárias também assina o texto aplicado na parede da Galeria:

Nuestra región se há distinguido en los últimos años especialmente por la proyección indetenible de sus valores y virtudes creativas. En este sentido las artes visuales y muy especialmente el diseño y la gráfica urbana brilian con la luz propia en el entorno de la alfabetidad visual, parte fundamental de la comunicación de nuestro tiempo.

Las posibilidades tipográficas y sus particularidades estructurales y formales, como las representadas por las noveles fuentes iconográficas latinoamericanas, herederas éstas, de una tradiciòn visual exuberante, rica, e impactante, que sin dejar de ser pragmática contribuye a representar nuestra realidad, através de las formas visuales casi endêmicas, pero universales también en su perspectiva total. Esta muestra de dingbats brasileños son una nueva contribución del talento comunicacional contemporáneo latinoamericano, que acogemos gracias a la Asociación de Diseñadores Gráficos Brasileños, representados por nuestro colega y diseñador Bruno Porto.
Esta exhibición que es parte de la programación de la 4ta Bienal Latinoamericana Tipos Latinos 2010 enriquecerá sin duda alguna nuestro repertorio visual.

Dárias also wrote the introductory text (in Spanish, roughly translated) displayed in the entrance wall:

Our region has distinguished itself in recent years especially by the projection of its values and unstoppable creative virtues. In this sense the visual arts and especially the contemporary graphic design shine with its own light in the environment of visual literacy, a key part of the communication of our times.

The typographical possibilities and their constructional and formal characteristics, as represented by the Latin American novel iconographic sources, are heirs of a lush, rich, and powerful visual tradition, which while still being pragmatic help represent our reality, through near-endemic visual forms, but also universal in its total perspective. This sample of Brazilian dingbats are a new contribution of the Latin American contemporary communication talent, which we host thanks to the Brazilian Graphic Designers Association, represented by our colleague and designer Bruno Porto.
This exhibition which is part of the programming of the 4th Latin American Biennial Tipos Latinos 2010 will undoubtedly enrich our visual repertoire.
