Sketchy Details 

Artists play with ink and charcoal for Bonfoey display.

Sweeping pencil lines and charcoal smears dominate tonight's opening of Delineate: A Drawing Exhibition at Bonfoey Gallery. And so they should: To showcase their diversity, seven Ohio artists have contributed a collection of 35 drawings. There's Yale-educated Laurence Channing's sketches of charcoal cityscapes, which were inspired by hundreds of shots he's taken with his 35-millimeter camera. Lowell Tolstedt mixes whimsy and drama in his photos (drawings??) of Christmas lights and candy. And Bonfoey newcomer Julie Friedman has contributed a series of large cutouts and prints. Bonfoey's mission is to let art connoisseurs see — stroke for stroke — how each artist coupled pens, pencils, and charcoal with blank sheets of paper and canvas. "Some works are really nitty-gritty. And then there are some that come across as clear and crisp," says Marcia Hall, the gallery's director. "We want everyone to have a little taste of each artist's style to keep them coming back for more." The exhibit is on display from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fridays, and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays through Saturday, January 5, at Bonfoey Gallery, 1710 Euclid Avenue. Admission is free. Call 216-621-0178 or visit
Mondays-Fridays, 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m.; Saturdays, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Starts: Dec. 10. Continues through Jan. 5, 2007
