It's "Mostly Black & White" when Art/Place members take on the challenges of a limited palette in the cooperative gallery's first exhibit of 2014, opening Thursday, Jan. 9, and running through March 2.

The art show features the work of 18 artists using varied media including graphite, pen and ink, charcoal, etching, stenciling, oil and acrylic painting, photography and collage.

In this exhibition, Art/Place is taking a contemporary look at a time-honored tradition. Throughout history, many prominent artists have worked in black and white, from Escher's graphic puzzles to Picasso's sensual drawings and bold linocuts; and from Japanese Sumi-e ink paintings to Rembrandt's drawings and etchings.

There will be a reception at Art/Place, 70 Sanford St. on Sunday, Jan. 12, from 3 to 5 p.m. and artist talks are planned for Tuesday, Feb. 2, from noon to 1:30 p.m.

Art/Place is open Thursday through Saturday from noon to 4 p.m. and Sunday from 2 to 5 p.m.
