The Kentler Flatfiles were founded in 1990 as an essential element of the gallery.  The Flatfiles, a compendium of artworks by over 170 artists, have become an important resource for artists, collectors, curator and the general public by stressing the importance of drawing and work on paper in contemporary art today.  The Flatfiles are located behind the gallery and are available for viewing by appointment.  Guest Curators are invited to make selections from the Kentler Flatfiles for exhibitions at the gallery on a rotating basis.


...The work of the artists selected for this exhibition is diversified to reflect the many possibilities of drawing at this particular time. Different materials are employed but a strong presence of the linear gives the works their specific character. Line—the leading element in the work of these artists--is here subjected to innumerable permutations and transformations.
