The term “black and white drawing" may be defined as the linear realization of visual objects, concepts, emotions, and fantasies, including symbols and even abstract forms. In a return to the basics, Marks, steps back and examines the traditional and versa- tile medium of black ink, that dates back to the birth of the medium, by the Chinese, in 3000 BC...bla, bla,bla. (actual introduction) We’ve gathered a talented group of top drawers and asked them to contribute black and white art for a group show entitled “Marks, A Black & White Exhibition.”

Featured artists include Evan Hecox, James Jarvis, Andy Jenkins, Henry Jones, Randy Laybourne, Nathan Lewis, John McGuire, Travis Millard, Jason Polan and Michael Sieben.
