Fine Line
Drawings

February 2 - March 11, 2006

Adam Baumgold Gallery presents “Fine Line” - a drawing exhibition from February 2 through March 11, 2006.“Fine Line” features the works of 40 artists whose drawing styles and line are at once so distinctive and authoritative that their work is unmistakably recognizable as their own. The artists included in the exhibition are: Pablo Picasso, George Grosz, Saul Steinberg, H. C. Westermann, Chris Ware, Renée French, Jim Nutt, Marc Bell, Julie Doucet, Anton van Dalen, Jacob El Hanani, Ellen Lanyon, Adam Dant, Scott Teplin, Tom Gauld, Matthew Thurber, Ben Jones, Frank Santoro, Mark Kostabi, Robyn O’Neil, Ernesto Caivano, Robin Tewes, Tony Fitzpatrick, Rebecca Bird, Alejandro Cardenas, Daniel Zeller, Alexander Gorlizki, Seth Michael Forman, Matt Leines, James Castle, Ruth Marten, Alice Attie, Christina Ramberg, Keith Jones, Michael Krueger, Olive Ayhens, Rob Matthews, Martin Wilner, Eddie Martinez, Jules Feiffer, Sémpe, Alice Attie and Madge Gill.

Included in the exhibition is Pablo Picasso’s ink drawing “Deux Vielles Femme Contemplant L’Amour,” 1970, that is typical of the artists’ unmistakable, sinuous, fine line. It depicts an almost comic, grotesque scene showing two haggard, old women ravaged by age, seated alongside a perfectly well formed little baby. In Saul Steinberg’s “Night Highway and Gas Station,” 1954, a myriad of cross-hatched lines define and evoke a nocturnal road scene amidst an Art Deco gas station.

Also included in the exhibition is Marc Bell’s “George Lucas Carried Me Throo the Muck,” 2005, an animated, fine line ink drawing teeming with quasi people and animals among text rife with free association. Dan Zeller’s drawings of repeated patterns of pulsating, undulating lines create the sensation of abstract topographical rhythms of terrain viewed from above. Renee French’s tiny, quirky “Bunny” drawings, 2005-6, are rendered with the combination of densely shaded areas and thinly, precisely outlined drawings of bunny heads in surrealistic garb and contraptions.

The gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday 11:00 - 5:30 P.M. For additional information, please contact Adam Baumgold at (212)861-7338. .
