Quick Hit: Spread the Lead at Gallery Hanahou

Spread the Lead    what if we only had the pencil?
October 16 – November 20
gallery hanahou
611 Broadway, Suite 730 NYC
Opening reception: October 16, 6-9 pm

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 is challenging 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.

Participating artists include digital character artist Kirsten Ulve, peaceable painting duo APAK, and Robbie Guertin, who plays in the band Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and has collaborated with other artists on album artwork.
