Recently, I showed you examples of the black and white drawing show at the Dudley Public Library. For the few out-of-towners who can't make it to the exhibit --here's a pictorial walk-through of the general atmosphere, and some of the display cases.

Here are some examples from my current show at the Dudley Public Library. The show's title is Carlos W. Byron: Life in black and white.
Franklin Park, Roxbury is favorite location for me with lot's of great memories. This piece isn't in the show, but I'm posting here for you.

|James Baldwin, Silverpoint drawing, 6" x 8"|
Silverpoint is a medium of the Renaissance. It was used before pencil. It is also used as a foundation for egg tempera paintings. As it ages the values become darker, but they maintain their silvery glow from the excess silver deposited on the gesso surface.
