'This Is Not A Drawing' opening Thursday July 31st, 6-8pm

'This Is Not A Drawing', Spencer Brownstone Gallery's summer group show of works on paper by Jeff Gabel, David X. Levine, and Monika Zarzeczna opens this Thursday evening, 6-8pm.

The exhibition investigates how drawing attempts to surpass its various limitations and take on the more esoteric qualities of other mediums, featuring widely contrasting approaches to what a 'work on paper' can mean: from Jeff Gabel's hand drawn renderings of his own blog postings, through David X. Levine's almost sculptural build-ups of color pencil, to Monika Zarzeczna's lyrical mash-ups of sacred and secular imagery.

Read more here, and please join us for the opening reception Thursday evening!
