Eric Diehl at Skylight Gallery

January 22, 2013

One of the things I always like is discovering an artist of whom I was unaware.

Skylight Gallery on West 29th Street has done just that. Their current show is a melange of existing artists and ones new to the gallery.

Eric Diehl’s drawings are the standouts. He is a young artist, having graduated from Pratt Institute in 2007, with exceptional technique and a delicate hand. His pen and ink drawings are finely rendered and exquisite. You expect them to stand up and walk away, even the places. I suspect the great drawing masters of the past (yes, even Leonardo) will welcome him to their ranks.

The show is up until late February. Skylight is at 538 W 29 Street between 10th and 11th Avenues. The gallery is open to the public on Saturday afternoons and by appointment weekdays.
