Starting today, a dozen of my ink drawings will be exhibited in OP-ED ART:IMAGE IN THE SERVICE OF IDEAS, a group exhibition at the Pelham Art Center, Pelham New York. The show will run through March 25. The opening is this evening at 6:30.
The other artists are Doug Chayka, Frances Jetter, Alex Nabaum, Eiko Ojala and Bruce Waldman. It was curated by Elizabeth Saperstein and Nancy Warner.
From the gallery's website: "In OP-ED Art, artists create powerful graphic images in newspapers and magazines to reveal a nugget of the political, personal, or cultural stories they illustrate. Original pen and ink drawings, prints, paintings, collages, and digital art by six celebrated artists who have achieved international acclaim and awards will be on view."
My own drawings cover a period of more than 40 years, starting with my first drawing for the New York Times Op-Ed page in 1970, a time that I've written about here.
My "That's Not Art" poster, the poster for this exhibition, was first done for the Center for Book Arts and is available either there or (in its new version) from the Pelham Art Center.
