New drawings by F. Lennox Campello depict a wide range of well-known writers in an exhibition titled "Literary Drawings" at the Fraser Gallery.
Among the authors who inspired the drawings are O. Henry, pseudonym for William Sydney Porter (1862-1910), noted for the surprise endings to his short stories; best-selling writer Stephen King, known for his thriller-mystery short stories, and Anais Nin (1903-1977), French-born US author whose novels and stories depict the inner worlds of women in surrealistic and psychoanalytic fashion.
Other notables in the exhibit are Che Guevara (1928-1967), Cuban communist revolutionary and guerrilla leader who helped organize Castro's coup in 1959; and Jose Marti (1853-1895), major Cuban poet and hero of the anti-Spanish independence movement.
Campello studied art at the University of Washington School of Art in Seattle under Jacob Lawrence and others. His work has been exhibited in nearly 100 exhibitions in museums and galleries in Europe, Latin America and the United States.
"Literary Drawings" opened on December 15 and will continue through Jan 17 at the Fraser Gallery, 1054 31st Street, NW. The gallery hours are noon to 3 P.m. Tuesday through Friday and noon to 6 p.m. on Saturday. For more information, call 202/298-6450.
