Twenty four large scale "drawings" hung edge to edge, most of which are in two values, delineating the fractures in plates of broken glass. Visually these are very direct and expose their technique. They are both patently representational and profoundly abstract. They look like nothing but schematic studies of how glass shatters. Another group employs a different, unknown technique. Their appearance is of a fine, off white, irregular net or web upon a black ground. The web-like accumulation seems scribbled or spiraling. They oppose the others. Its's unclear how they were done, and they are completely non-objective.
