Firehouse gallery exhibits Asian-influenced style 

Herndon's work concentrates on portraying the beauty of nature.

Still, the similarities in their drawings become apparent when examining their use of ink and paper, not to mention a commitment to the Chinese art technique of using color very sparingly; black ink is their primary medium.

"If a picture doesn't stand on its own without color, then it isn't drawn right. In other words, color is just a complement," Bradford said.

The juxtaposition of his drawings and Herndon's subtle depictions of nature in the same gallery is what makes this exhibition so intriguing, said Douglas Shaw Elder, Firehouse executive director.

"We are trying to create an educational gallery so that when people come in, they can see more than just a painting; hopefully, they will see connections," Elder said. "They each have their strengths, but together, you can see the complete range of what you can do in drawing."
