'Imagine' exhibition showcases 70 works of art by John Lennon

December 04, 1991

An exhibit of 70 works by the late John Lennon -- including copper etchings, lithographs, silk screens and pen and ink drawings -- go on display today through Sunday at the HarborView Marina and Yacht Club on Key Highway near Federal Hill.

"Imagine Exhibition of the Art of John Lennon" includes images done by Lennon between 1968, when he was with the Beatles, and 1980, the year of his death. (He was murdered in New York 11 years ago this Sunday.) The exhibit was in Baltimore last December but features different works this time, according to exhibit director Colm Rowan. Included is Lennon's "Bag One" portfolio that created controversy in London in 1970 because of its allegedly erotic nature. Other images relate to Lennon's music writing as well as family scenes with his wife Yoko and son Sean.

Each work is one of a limited edition and is available at prices ranging from $100 to $100,000, with most clustered in the $1,500 range, Mr. Rowan said.

Baltimore is the 19th city on the current tour, which will go to Charlotte and Greensboro, N.C., Princeton, N.J., and Mystic, Conn., in early 1992.

The exhibit is open 9 a.m.-9 p.m. each day and admission is free. For more information, call (410) 783-0034.
