Adam Baumgold Gallery presents "On Line" - a drawing exhibition from December 15 through January 26, 2008. "On Line" features the works of 40 artists whose drawing styles and line are at once so distinctive an authoritative that their work is unmistakably recognizable as their own.

Included in the exhibition is Pablo Picasso's ink drawing "Deux Vielles Femme Contemplant L'Amour," 1970, that is typical of the artists' unmistakable, sinuous, fine line. It depicts an almost comic, grotesque scene showing two haggard, old women ravaged by age, seated alongside a perfectly well formed little baby. In Saul Steinberg's "Declaration of Independence," 1959, the artist's virtuoso line and calligraphic style mimics the words and letters of the famous document, while in reality these are nonsensical scribbles.

Also included in the exhibition will be Geneva based Elvis Studio's (Helge Reumann + Xavier Robel) epic drawing "Elvis Road," 2001, a one foot by thirty foot scroll drawing of a dense, hypnotic, fantastical metropolis. The Zurich artist, Anna Sommer, creates distinctive drawing collages of cut colored paper depicting sexy bedroom scenarios such as "Taboo," 2007. Also included in the exhibition is Marc Bell's "Skinny Fighter Pilot on a Stink Reconnaissance," 2007, an animated, fine line ink an watercolor drawing teeming with quasi people among text rife with free association.

Exhibition December 15, 2007 - January 26, 2008
