November 7, 2014 until January 3, 2015

*Opening reception November 6, 2014 by RSVP

Following worldwide critical acclaim and unprecedented demand for Bob Dylan’s The Drawn Blank Series, a new collection of eight signed limited edition prints will be unveiled on November 7, 2014 at Andrew Weiss Gallery in Santa Monica.  This exhibition, which also includes three examples of Dylan’s originals, is a comprehensive and authoritative collection of Bob Dylan’s art.  While Dylan has been a committed visual artist for more than five decades, The Drawn Blank Series casts a vibrant new light on the singular creativity of one of the world’s most important and influential cultural figures.

Based on drawings and sketches made by Dylan while on the road during the period of 1989 through 1992, the exclusive and limited edition prints in The Drawn Blank Series visually echo the stylistic hallmarks of Dylan’s prose, poetry and music.  Just as Dylan’s songs are constantly reinvigorated and rediscovered through his live performances, so these artworks revisit images and scenes which were captured in all their immediacy by the artist. Dylan chronicled his life on the road: in between gigs, on trains, in cafés, backstage. The drawings trace his everyday observations, his thought process and his vision.

The Drawn Blank Series has resulted in a collection which is at once a significant independent achievement and a fascinating extrapolation of themes and images which haunt his music. The exhibition is on view through January 3, 2015.

*A portion of the exhibition opening night proceeds on November 6, 2014 will benefit P.S. ARTS, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit whose mission is to improve the lives of children by providing arts education to underserved public schools and communities.
