Artists who work intimately with perhaps the most basic of media are the focus of I Just Want the Paper. The group show, curated by Ikechukwu Onyewuenyi, Kareema Thomas and Sean Beauford, opens with a reception at this Point Breeze gallery.

The exihibit features work by seven artists, including Darrell S. Kinsel, Stephani Martinez, Suzanne Desbiens, Susan Goethel-Campbell, Gianna Paniagua, Kenturah Davis and Terrence Boyd. Pictured is work by Davis. Kinsel is Pittsburgh-based.

The Pittsburgh-based Onyewuenyi, a native of Nigeria, is a former gallery assistant at Carnegie Mellon University’s Miller Gallery.

According to a curatorial statement, the show was inspired by Gerhard Richter, who said: “Drawing or painting on paper is more impulsive than painting on canvas. … I found that the directness of the works on paper led to randomness and virtuosity. I didn’t want any of that.”

The opening reception for I Just Want the Paper runs 6-10 p.m. Sat., Dec. 6. Admission is free. The exhibit continues through Dec. 21.

The Mine Factory is located at 201 N. Braddock Ave.
