What makes a 'drawing?" Is it pencil, pen, or pastel? Or is it the age-old line? 'The Sixth Show" presents answers in the form of six artists' work. Erin Somerville uses charcoal on huge plaster slabs to depict everyday objects in rough, white space. Rachelle Guenther's stylus is her glaze laid down on ceramic tiles to make a line nonetheless drawn. Elizabeth L. Isakson uses pastel on paper to create dark, sun-setting cityscapes with very little line. Kylie Lockwood uses paint on paper to capture the images of baby bird and cat ghosts. Ryan Csaszar uses brushed ink on paper to create romantic and gestural figures live. Carl Oxley uses paint marker on canvas to make simple, fun, line-driven characters. Owners Greg Frederick and Mark Sengbusch havesome drawings to show off as well.
