Spread the Lead at gallery hanahou

A new show opens this Thursday at gallery hanahou that we’re very excited about!


October 16 – November 20
Opening reception: October 16, 6-8 pm

What if the history of art began and ended with graphite, and your local art supply store was little more than a pencil outlet? For this group show, gallery hanahou has challenged artists from all backgrounds and mediums to drop their brushes and computer mice and see what they can do with only a B2 pencil and a piece of paper. Just as compelling as the results on the gallery walls will be the visitors’ reactions to so many artistic viewpoints rendered in shades of gray. The pencils the artists used will be included with sale of the artwork.

Participating artists include digital maestro Kenzo Minami, peaceable painting duo APAK, and Robbie Guertin, who plays in the band Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and has collaborated with other artists on album artwork.

Here is a small sample of the pieces in the show:

One thought on “Spread the Lead at gallery hanahou

  1. Oh I wish I could! It looks like a fantastic exhibit! I’ve been thinking of picking up my sketch book for a sketch a day soon. I feel so much happier about my art when I try to fit in a bit of drawing each day.
    Those drawings look fantastic!!
