“Pencil Me In” Art Show
PRESS RELEASE September 24, 2004

ART SHOW OPENING: “Pencil Me In: Graphite 2004"

September 24-October 17, 2004"

The Geoffrey Young Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of "Pencil Me In," a large group show featuring artists who draw on paper with the common pencil. "Pencil Me In" will gather examples of the work of 25 artists who live in New York, Berlin, Los Angeles, Long Island, Salisbury, and Great Barrington, among other places.

The show will range from the fastidious copies of celebrated artist photos by Dan Fischer and Mark Flores, to the libidinous eloquence of Carroll Dunham, to the fantastic flights of imaginative fancy by Kirsten Deirup, John Kleckner, and Steve diBenedetto. Naturalism will be represented by Walton Ford and Philip Knoll, just as abstraction will be fore-grounded by Katia Santibanez, James Siena, &Jacob El Hanani.

The omnipresent pencil will be celebrated in the work of artists who transform its modesty into something truly their own.

A reception for the artists and public will take place September 25th, 5:30-7:30. All are invited. Refreshments served.

Gallery hours will be extended until 7:30 on Saturday, October 2nd, during Great Barrington's Art Walk evening.
