Adam Baumgold Gallery presents the exhibition “Drawn to the Edge” from March 23 through April 28, 2007. This group drawing exhibition of 41 artists will focus on two distinct drawing styles - “all over” drawings that cover the entire page many times without a central motif, and drawings that deal with the edge of the sheet as a means of cropping or expanding the image.

The artists in the exhibition are Saul Steinberg, H. C. Westermann, Marc Bell, Renee French, Matt Leines, Julie Doucet, Anton Van Dalen, Jacob El Hanini, Ellen Lanyon, Adam Dant, Scott Teplin, Tom Gauld, Matthew Thurber, Mark Kostabi, Robyn O'Neil, Thomas Burleson, Diane Christiansen, Robin Tewes, Tony Fitzpatrick, Rebecca Bird, Daniel Zeller, Alexander Gorlizki, Jean Pierre Nadeau, Trenton Doyle Hancock, William Arthur Schwedler, Vivienne Koorland, Christina Ramberg, Martin Wilner, Olive Ayhens, James Castle, Michael Krueger, Ruth Marten, Keith Jones, Madge Gill, Anke Feuchtenberger, Huston Ripley, Elvis Studio (Helge Reumann And Xavier Robel), Michael Pajon, and others.

Some works included in the exhibition are Robin Tewes’ camouflage drawing “It’s A Jungle in Here,” 2007 that has an image of a chair submerged in an all over camouflage pattern that becomes neatly embedded within the composition. Saul Steinberg’s ink drawing “Drugstore,” 1946 is a complex vignette of an old fashioned drugstore teaming with people, activities and products that covers the entire page through cropping, implying activity beyond the edge of the sheet. Scott Teplin’s drawing and watercolor “Aquaduct,” 2007 features a series of interlocking rooms that seem to be expanding on all sides past the picture plane. The Elvis Studio’s (Helge Reumann and Xavier Robel) ink drawings of retro/future Metropolis scenes are so densely packe dwith activities that the viewer must look at many separate incidents before grasping the whole composition.

The gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday 11:00 - 5:30 P.M. A preview of the exhibition can be seen at adambaumgoldgallery.com. For additional information please contact Adam Baumgold at (212)861-7338.
