Ink on paper at Gallery Joe

Edith Newhall reviews of the show in The Philadelphia Inquirer: "In the lush Philadelphia summer, with vivid color running rampant, ink on paper can look as crisp and smart as Gregory Peck in To Kill a Mockingbird. That's the immediate effect of "Ink!", Gallery Joe's summer group show, organized by assistant gallery director Sarah Holloran. But a closer look at the ink-on-paper works of its 11 artists reveals how complex and labor-intensive most of them are behind that first contrast-y punch. Atticus Finch's straightforward seersucker they are not." Artists include Martin Wilner, Samantha Simpson, Sharyn O'Mara, Linn Meyers, Gil Kerlin, Simon Frost, Roland Flexner, Jacob El Hanani, Emily Brown, Astrid Bowlb, William Anastasi Read more. "Ink!" Gallery Joe, Philadelphia, PA, through July 28.
