The Side By Side exhibit is a collaboration between two artists, one using graphite and ink drawings, one using black and white and color photos. These dual images may well lead viewers to a broader appreciation of a subject because of its being shown by more than one medium. Subjects include self-portraits, organic forms in nature, buildings and industrial settings. Thus, the 12 subjects depicted by these two techniques and two different sets of eyes are hung side by side in an exhibit of 24 pieces.
