John Lennon's sketches on display, for sale in Studio City
Before he was a Beatle and political activist, John Lennon was an artist.Many of his later works relating to love, peace and life with wife Yoko Ono and their son, Sean, are on display and for sale in the exhibition "The Art of John Lennon," opening today and continuing through Sunday at the Love Champ Gallery in Studio City.The free-admission show features many limited-edition prints of Lennon's trademark pen-and-ink drawings from the 1960s and '70s."He had a gift for a quick sketch that created a lot of meaning, and when people come to the exhibition they'll definitely get a sense of Lennon through his artwork," says Paul Jillson, owner of Pacific Edge Gallery in Laguna Beach and co-curator of the traveling exhibition.
