NYC member Francie Shaw‘s pen and ink renderings feel both
intimate and global. Her exhibition Weights and Measures,
currently on view in Gallery II, explores issues of attachment and
loss, war and renewal. Stop by the gallery during the month of
April to see the show, and all seven pieces in the flat files ranging
in price from $250–$350. Take a look at Shaw’s Flat Files
In 2004 Francie illustrated Playing Bodies in collaboration with poet Bob Perelman. The
book‘s fifty-two drawings laid the groundwork for the light/heavy theme amplified in
Weights and Measures. For more information about this intriguing book click
A.I.R. Gallery‘s Flat Files now carry the work of almost thirty artists.
