Long before the implementation of pigmented pastels and paint, before colored oils and ink, man's earliest ancestors used the burnt charcoal left over by flint-sparked fires to construct the first notions of illustrated narrative and artistry. Nowadays associated with preparatory sketches and rough drafts, the immediacy of modern charcoal drawings are riddled with perspective. In conjunction with this month's First Fridays Art Walk, Main Art Gallery presents “Just Charcoal,” an exhibition featuring works by eight artists each asked to create a single work on paper using nothing but the smudgy, black residue. Curated by Janet DeCover, “Just Charcoal,” opens Feb. 4 at 7 p.m. and remains on display through Feb. 26. 355-6151. — Mike Hilleary
