Spread The Lead, Gallery Hanahou, N.Y.C.

September 30th, 2008

Show Dates: Oct. 16th – Nov. 2th 2008

Presented by Gallery Hanahou. What if the history of art began and ended with graphite, and your local art supply store was little more than a pencil outlet? For this group show, gallery hanahou has challenged artists from all backgrounds and mediums to drop their brushes and computer mice and see what they can do with only a B2 pencil and a piece of paper. Just as compelling as the results on the gallery walls will be the visitors’ reactions to so many artistic viewpoints rendered in shades of gray. The pencils the artists use to create their work will be included with sale of the artwork.
