The 7 artists in this show believe in images. Characters, abstraction, text—all are used in the pursuit of making pictures that strike the viewer both for their gestalt and for their love of refining a personal library of visuals for the most intense potential. Each artist pushes their image-making to the point where its creativity aches in front of us. Most of these artists work with characters, the face and body are used almost as a template—a solid structure to build wild expression upon.

Each artist in this show will present a selection of works on paper. This opening also serves as a kick-off event for Open Space’s Publications and Multiples Fair held March 9th and 10th at the D Center (16 W. North Ave.). To celebrate this, each artist will have an original, extremely low print run zine available at the show.
